For the bride looking for drama, a 2 in 1 wedding gown is the way to go and brides are all over this trend! Imagine showing up at your reception looking like you have changed into a completely different dress, when you are still wearing the same dress, but you only removed the detachable train! Isn't that awesome?? A lot of wedding dresses with detachable trains are designed to hug the body's curves, creating a sleek and sexy look that can flatter the appropriate figure. Then a extra design is added either in the form of a ball skirt which is later removed, or in the form of a half detachable train as shown above.

These wedding gowns are often made from fabrics with some stretch to them, such as stretch satin or lace, to create a snug and comfortable fit. The dress skirt may be made from layers of tulle or chiffon to create a soft, flowing effect, or it may be more structured with layers of taffeta or organza.

Because of its dramatic shape, this wedding dress style may not need additional embellishments or accessories to make a statement. Instead, a simple veil, a pair of elegant earrings, and a delicate bracelet can be all you need to complete the look.

If you feel this glamorous and sophisticated wedding dress fits your preference, check out our collection that has hundreds of 2 in 1 wedding gowns that you can choose from to feel confident and beautiful on your big day.

4. Sheath Wedding Gowns

These wedding gowns feature a straight, narrow shape that skims the body from the neckline to the hem. They are often made from lightweight and fluid fabrics, such as silk, chiffon, or crepe.

Wedding dresses in this category are the perfect choices for taller brides. They can create a very streamlined and elegant look, helping to elongate the body and create a sleek and sophisticated silhouette.

Sheath wedding gowns can also be an excellent choice for beach weddings or outdoor ceremonies, as they are often designed with a simple and minimalist aesthetic that can be perfect for a more casual and laid-back wedding.

Because sheath wedding dresses are so sleek and minimal, it's best to choose understated and elegant accessories. A delicate pair of earrings, a simple bracelet, and strappy heels can be all you need.

Overall, a sheath wedding gown is a chic and modern choice that can be perfect for brides who want an elegant and effortless dress.

Just be sure to choose a style that flatters your body type and makes you feel comfortable and confident on your big day. You can select from our collection of Sheath wedding dresses that will complement any Ugandan bride.

5. Long Sleeved Wedding Gowns

With the recent church restrictions, a lot of Ugandan brides are opting for a wedding dress with long sleeve for a modest bridal look expected in the churches and mosques.

Long sleeves are a classic and timeless wedding dress style that can be perfect for brides who want a more covered-up look. They typically feature sleeves that extend to the wrists or beyond, and they can be made from various fabrics and styles.

One of the benefits of a long sleeve wedding gown is that it can simultaneously be elegant and modest. This style of dress can be particularly flattering on brides who want to create a more traditional and romantic look, and it can be an excellent choice for a church or religious ceremony.

Long sleeve wedding gowns are also versatile and can be styled to suit various wedding themes and styles. For example, you can choose a dress with delicate lace sleeves for a vintage-inspired look or a more modern, minimalist design with sleek, fitted sleeves.

Overall, a long sleeve wedding gown is a beautiful and classic choice that can help you to feel confident and comfortable on your special day.
