What should we have in mind when choosing the perfect dress?
Everything! Fabrics, color, your body, your hair and even your bridesmaids! Shopping with your closest friends can help you find that perfect dress, with the bare honesty only they can give!
The traditional colors are white, ivory, beige or champagne, but take into account your skin, eyes and hair when deciding upon this. Experiment to see which contrasts and compliments you. You don’t need to stick to these traditional colors, whatever makes you happy, look great and feel comfortable is the way to go. If you read our earlier blog post about Halloween Weddings you will see Wedding dresses don’t have to conform to those age old traditions to look beautiful.
As stated above, it is important to find a wedding dress that enhances your best features. For brides with wide hips consider a draping bridal gown that has a bodice with a lot of texture or detailing. If you want to look more sledder, a deep V neckline will draw eyes vertically rather than across. neckline for you is one with a deep V, which will draw eyes toward the vertical, not the horizontal. Waist belted dresses can also really accentuate your features.
Princess cut dresses are ideal for you if the top of your body is thin and your legs and hips are wider.
Tall women can look very elegant in long, simple dresses. Too many accessories like ruffles and rosettes can draw distraction on a taller bride.
Meanwhile shorter brides look wonderful in trumpet, sheath, and modified A-line gowns. Dresses with a high waistline will make the lower half of your dress appear longer. Accessorises and detailing such as ruffles should be kept on the bodice.
Regardless of size, every woman wants to look beautiful on her wedding day. It’s coming up to 2017, and there are now many beautiful dresses to choose from for everyone, regardless of shape or size.
