An imperial cut bridal gown has a neoclassic style, with roots in the French revolution and ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, when fitted gowns and plunging necklines were a real no no. In these eras women were demure and innocent and above all else, had to look elegant and not trashy.

Imperial cuts are no longer trapped in time and are now adapted to many different styles and looks. It is now a classic bridal gown cut, one that works wonders to accentuate beautiful necklines. The cut starts under the bust line, usually with a loose skirt hiding many a complex we may have about larger hips or a slightly larger waistline. Perfect for curvy or expectant brides, but also ideal if you’re looking for a vintage or bohemian wedding look. This cut is comfortable, sophisticated and elegant… what more could you want!
