I love my Pnina Brides that have a whimsical and fun side to them. Brides that want their gowns to reflect their fun and outgoing personalities are always such a joy to work with. Your wedding day style should be a reflection of yourself and creating gowns for brides who seek to do just that is a wonderful privilege. One of the most popular styles amongst my brides that like a touch of whimsy added to their gowns is the handkerchief gown. Composed of wonderful layers creating different shapes and dimensions to the skirt, these gowns are no doubt full of magic and wonder.
Handkerchief gowns themselves come in many different variations but are based off of the same shape and silhouette. Handkerchief gowns are constructed similar to ball gowns. They usually have an empire or natural waist and from there cascade out into layers and layers of fabric. Some have “shoe cleavage” which is where they are a bit shorter in the front and you can see the bride’s shoes while others are full length. Some gowns resemble an actual handkerchief with its layers forming different layers that come to a point at the bottom while others are soft and voluminous waves.
Another great thing about handkerchief gowns is that there is truly one for every style of bride. They can be rustic and romantic covered in lace or they can be glitzy and glam with a crystal studded corset. There’s even something for the sexy and sweet bride because illusion corsets add the perfect touch of allure to these enchanting dresses. What did I tell you – so diverse!
There are many different styles, silhouettes and variations of gowns, but if you are looking for a gown that is fun and elegant at the same time then I think a handkerchief gown might be for you.
