The solution that the online bridal web pages offer in this regard is the choice of Greek wedding gowns that are beautifully represented by the Empire style of a wedding dress as well as the column style also known as sheath style. These styles are reflected in the designs of recent trends unfolded by the famous fashion designers, they being the ones to incorporate crafty embroideries and sparkling waistbands to embellish the aspect of the wedding gown, getting it out of the common look of an usual attire.

Even if the fashion designers have decided to use this Greek style for the design of a wedding gown, you see that many of their creations could be distinguished due to the way they manage to preserve the femininity in the simple cut of a Greek wedding gown. What characterizes the empire style of a wedding dress is emphasized by the raised waistline placed just below the bust, from that point the rest of the dress flowing down to its hemline. This style is considered to be very versatile, since it can be adjusted to a wide range of formal events as well as less formal weddings.

Other options that are displayed by the empire style are the choices of bell sleeves addition for a wedding meant to be performed in the cold seasons, but this one loses the aspect of Greek goddess, resembling more to the Renaissance style of a dress. The skirt style presents several variants to its aspect in regard to the way of flowing: the skirt can flow freely right from under the waistline but it can as well contour the body shape this depending of course on the way you want to create your silhouette.

The choice of light fabric is also considered by the bridal fashion designers, since the light fabric can flow delicately and confer the bride to wear easiness in movements, this being again a feature that appeals to you. Taking into account that your wedding event is planned to be held outdoors, you might need to move cozy among your invitees especially that the entire day will catch you dressed in this Greek goddess style of a dress.

Some designs display empire style dresses made of two contrasting fabrics, for instance the pairing of a rich embroidered bodice with the simple flowing of a satin skirt. The inspiration of these fashion designers in regard to wedding gowns is endless, the sources for their inspiration being found most of the times in the feminine and sensual forms of Greek Goddesses so detailed depicted in ancient fresco-s.11
