Wedding Dress Styles You can Dance In

for the dance-loving bride


Ok lovelies, we all know by now that aside from considering the designer, vibe and style of your wedding dress, a BIG factor to consider is whether you can perform your signature dance moves on the dance floor with your fave cocktail in hand!

Whether you will be partaking in a dreamy classical waltz or a sassy bootylicious Beyoncé tune with your faves – we’ve got bridal gowns to suit every kind of dancing queen!

If your a dance-loving bride, then hopefully these bridal styles can inspire you – or perhaps one of these is simply the one! 

WILLOW by Jane Hill

Embellishment heaven with a secure plunging bust

If you want to shimmy your way through the party into the early hours of the morning, you might be concerned about choosing a dress which gives you security. Fear not – of course there are bridal gowns with straps, halter necks, off-the-shoulder structure and more – but if we had to choose, we’d highly recommend Willow by Jane Hill.
