Statement Dresses for Any Wedding Style

Statement dresses demand attention.

If you want to make an impact on your wedding day, you need to find the perfect statement wedding gown. Viero Bridal offers wedding gowns crafted with the finest fabrics and include show-stopping details.

There are many different types of statement dresses, so you must decide which one is best for your particular wedding style.

A statement dress can be anything from a lace gown with an asymmetrical hemline to a high-waisted, full-length gown. It can also be any color or pattern.

These dresses are usually bold and dramatic making a real impression on wedding guests.

Here are some great choices for a wedding dress that can make a statement and turn heads on your wedding day.

Wedding Gowns That Make an Impact

The statement dress of your dreams will depend on the style of your wedding, like black tie vs garden nuptials, and your own personal style. But here are some thoughts about statement gowns to get you started!


Gowns with trains have a glamorous and confident presence because they make the wearer feel like royalty. Train gowns are also perfect for brides who don’t want to wear a veil, headpiece, or tiara but still want to look elegant. You may even wish to enhance a gown with an embellished train, which can dramatically impact photos and long aisles, as few things wow like a sweeping train with sparkly embellishments, detailed embroidery, or bold embroidery color.


If you’re looking for an entrance with style, nothing beats a dramatic gown adorned in sparkly elements, highly detailed embroidery, or scalloped hems.

Brides looking to make a statement can choose from any number of gowns with embellishments. Dresses with extra sparkle and little bits of shimmer look good and make you feel good. A dress with these elements can make any bride feel confident in their skin.

Backless Gowns

A backless gown is a great and stylish option for brides who are looking to use their wedding as an opportunity to wear something different. Backless dresses can be made in various fabrics, some more traditional with appliqués, featuring flora and fauna detailing, ruffles, and other more modern details. Backless gowns can also be made with a longer train for added drama.
Depending on the viewing angle, they give the bride some unexpected flash of skin and make a wedding gown feel modern, modest, and sultry.


Simplicity and minimalism may be the way to go for some brides, but many others dream about lavish gowns and exquisite details. Exaggerated ruffles have been making an impact as a way to make a statement at your wedding, proving that creativity and beauty are essential during this chaotic time.

You’ll be bridal from head to toe in a beautiful ruffled dress that makes you feel both royal and chic. The embellishments will add that luxurious touch to your look, making it feel like a showstopping ceremony. Don’t be scared of a ruffle— the updated look comes in all forms, from cascading tulle to a more understated hemline. Whether you like flowing gowns or dresses with embellishments, the ruffle is always an essential detail to make a statement.

Beaded Elements

Even the most basic wedding gown silhouette can make a statement by adding beads. Ornate motifs like lace and beadwork can give your dress a luxurious touch. We love the way pearlescent accents can be incorporated with a dress, making it a showstopper for any wedding style. Consider wearing a daring neckline for your special day with a beaded bodice. You might also want to consider attaching some glittering, glistening beads to the hem or train of your dress for an extra impact.


Ballgowns have been a popular option for brides traditionally. However, designers update the traditional ball gown to make it more cutting edge and modern. Inspired by grand royal weddings, choosing a ballgown wedding dress for your big day will make it memorable. If you want to portray a regal princess-like feel on your wedding day, choose one of these styles.

Slip Dress

Even if you’re a minimal dresser, an effortlessly chic slip dress can impact your wedding day.

Opt for details like lace trim, sumptuous fabrics, or intricate hems to make a bolder statement. Slip gowns with plunging necklines or all-over sequins make for a perfect transition from the reception to the after-party. These dresses have been shown at many celebrity weddings and are elegant and sophisticated. They are also easy to wear as they come in classic shapes with a simple silhouette. Whether you’re looking for a black-tie or countryside wedding, brides can wear these dresses to any wedding style.

One-Shouldered Dress

This year and in years past, a popular wedding dress style has been the one-shoulder gown. It’s unique and edgy but offers more stability than a strapless dress, so it is excellent for brides with any sized bust.

A one-shoulder neckline would be perfect for weddings of all styles and can be dressed up or down with accessories, makeup, and hairstyles. You can also choose from various features such as oversized bows, tiered skirts, or floral appliques to find your perfect fit and match your wedding style. A one-shouldered wedding gown is ideal for the bride who wants an elegant and modern look.

What to Look for in a Statement Dress

Statement dresses are perfect for a bride who wants to stand out from the crowd. Some brides prefer to have the same dress for both their ceremony and reception, while some have something more conservative for their ceremony and wear a more glamorous outfit later.

Brides preferring a statement gown will pick a style that is eye-catching and different from traditional wedding attire. This usually reflects their personality and how they want to be perceived for this special day.
