As the bride, you deserve to be at your best look. Thus, finding your wedding dress should be one of the most exciting parts about your wedding plans. We feel your excitement in designing the style of your bridal gown that you will wear on your big event. We just want you to enjoy every moment.
So, free yourself from the stress of planning. Before you actually go straight to bridal shops, acquaint yourself with wedding gown terminologies and styles. Here are some guidelines to help you get started;
First on the list is the Ball gown. It is normally quite formal, reminding you of Cinderella. It looks gorgeous on any body type, unless the bride is very short and small. The full skirt of a ball gown can hide large hips and thighs.
Next is the A-line or princess dress. It usually has a fitted bodice with a skirt that flares gently from the waist to form an "A" shape. It is a terrific choice for someone who would like to hidelower body flaws, but does not want a ball gown.
There is also the so called Sheath or the column dress. It flatters women with lean and poised figures. It has slim shape that follows closely to the line of the body. The straight design does not allow many body flaws. The long lines of a sheath gown can elongate the look of your body. Therefore this type of dress can work well for short brides.
Then, next is the Empire gown. It has a raised waistline that starts right under the bust, flowing to a skirt that skims over the hips then curves slightly to the floor. It usually made of light and smooth fabric. This gown is a comfortable choice for pregnant brides because it provides extra room in the waist.
Last but not the least, is the mermaid dress. It is contoured against the body then the gown flows out beginning around the knees. This is the sexiest of all the styles. If you are confident in your body, a mermaid dress can show off your curves.
