21 Ballet-Inspired Wedding Dresses You Can Expect to See Trending

21 Ballet-Inspired Wedding Dresses You Can Expect to See Trending

In keeping with the latest trends, check out our favorite balletcore wedding dresses hand-selected from our FYP.

If you haven’t heard, there is a new trend that has emerged in the bridal world: balletcore. We can accredit the sudden rise of ballet-inspired wedding dresses not only to designers, but also to the influence of TikTok. Scroll through your FYP and you will likely see more than one video explaining the meaning of balletcore, while also citing ballerinas as inspiration for wedding dresses this season.

So what does this so-called ‘balletcore’ trend entail? The term refers to soft silhouettes, dramatic tulle designs, and neutral colors. If you break it down, it’s not too far off from a traditional bridal look, and bridal and runway designers are finding plenty of ways to interpret this popular style.

For example, Zimmermann’s Spring ‘22 collection incorporates balletcore into its pieces by looking at the duality between strength and fluidity. This means soft ruffles and neutral colors but with structured elements. On the other hand, Simone Rocha took an edgier approach through deconstructed ballet-inspired silhouettes.

To help you visualize this trend for your upcoming nuptials, we’ve rounded up 21 of our favorite ballet-inspired wedding dresses for every style and budget.

Most Romantic: BCBG Oly Tiered Ruffle Tulle Evening Gown

What says ballet more than a blush-toned tulle gown? This dreamy option from BCBG stands out with a tiered ruffle skirt and a structured bodice.

Bridal or runway? This high-fashion, avant-garde dress from Simone Rocha is a deconstructed take on the soft elegance of balletcore. We especially love the sparkling embellished detailing at the bust of the dress.

Best Convertible Dress: Galia Lahav Ballerina Gown

The name says it all. This ballerina-inspired gown is the perfect way to incorporate the trend into your bridal look. The best part about this gown is that it’s convertible, so it can take you from ceremony to reception just by removing the tutu skirt.

Most Show-Stopping: Dana Harel Liel Gown

This ballgown from Dana Harel is undoubtedly eye-catching. The deep U-shaped neckline and dramatic slit make this gown stand out from the rest.

What to Look for in a Ballet-Inspired Wedding Dress

While most dresses don’t explicitly fall into this trend, there are plenty of elements to look out for when searching for a ballet-inspired ensemble. Remember, balletcore is all about soft neutral colors and silhouettes with movement. Color-wise, don’t feel like you have to strictly stick to bridal white as beige, nude, ivory, and blush pink are all hues that fit into this aesthetic perfectly. Voluminous tulle skirts with a structured corset bodice are also popular styles that align; and be sure to select gowns with details like bows, ribbons, and intricate beadwork. If you are looking to interpret the trend in a more subtle way, consider a wrap dress or a square or U-shaped neckline.


Is balletcore timeless?

While this style of dress is a current trend, the elements that make up the look are truly timeless such as romantic tulle skirts and structured bodices. We have a feeling this aesthetic is one that will stick around for years to come.

Where can I shop for this style of dress?

Many brands have elements of balletcore in their bridal collections, including Zimmermann, Danielle Frankel, and Kim Kassas, just to name a few. Needle & Thread and Reformation are also good places to look for this aesthetic.

How should I style my ballet-inspired wedding dress?

If you are looking to amplify your balletcore bridal look, styling can definitely help. A slicked-back bun and soft makeup both add to this aesthetic. Also, consider switching out your bridal heels for a pair of ballet flats to dance the night away in.
