A wedding dress will feel wonderful on as long as you choose the right silhouette for your body-type. If you are tall and thin choose a mermaid style or a style that is fitted at the top and flares out at the bottom to accentuate your long, lean shape.
If you’re petite, go for a simple and elongating gown, keep any intricate details on the top and keep the bottom simple. A beatiful satin sash (in white or a soft pastel colour) will accentuate your waistline.
Full-figured women should opt for a gown that is structured through the midsection and flares out at the bottom giving you an elongating and slimming silhouette.
Pear-shaped figures will benefit from choosing a fitted top with an a-line skirt that flares out from the midsection and accentuates your waistline.
If you’re having a destination wedding, have fun with your dress!! Choose light fabrics that travel well and think outside the box…how about instead of choosing a typical wedding gown you opt for a gorgeous short, cocktail dress in a beautiful and sparkling champagne colour!
Before heading out to shop for your perfect dress, have a clear picture of what you’re looking for. Browse through magazines, online, etc. to determine which styles really appeal to you, and bring inspiration photos with you when you go out shopping, this will also make it easier for the sales clerk to help you find what it is you’re looking for.
The most important thing to remember is that in order to shine in your dress you MUST feel comfortable in it!! Be sure to choose a dress that flatters YOUR body type and complements YOUR personality…and the result will be a dream come true!
