Ok, you've been browsing the bridal fashion magazines trying to get ideas for a wedding dress. Now, you're not sure what to do with all the choices and styles. Here are a few tips on how to narrow down the wedding dress selection.
1. Dress for your body shape. For example, if your body type is a pear shape, the widest part of your body is below the waist/around the hips. When selecting your bridal gown, you want to de-emphasize the area around your hips, and bring more emphasis to the top portion of your body. This will help balance your overall shape. When trying dresses on, bring a friend or family member to help you determine what looks best - but! not too many. Sometimes too many conflicting opinions will just confuse you more. 2. Pick dress textures or fabrics that work for you. 3. Be in the mood to try them on. Sometimes, if you're cranky or tired you might not be able to accurately judge what you like or dislike in a wedding dress. Pick a day to shop when you are feeling good and energetic - since that is more likely to be your mood on your wedding night anyway. 4. Don't exclude comfort. At least not completely. Sometimes girls are willing to sacrifice all comfort of the dress, if it makes them look better. While "looking" good in your wedding dress is important and the main goal, it's also important to "feel" good in your wedding dress too. Remember it's sometimes hot outside, so being comfortable might prevent unnecessary perspiration or irritation. Being comfortable in your dress will actually help keep you looking your best.

The mermaid style wedding dress conforms to the body around the torso and then flares out around the knee. This look highlights your curves. The mermaid style wedding dress can include different skirt styles. It can flare out above the knee, at the knee, or below the knee and be a rounded skirt or more of a flare. The mermaid cut is good for hour-glass or slender figures. It's not the best choice for apple-shaped figures since it accentuates the mid-section and conforms to the body. Tip: No matter what your body type, be sure to wear discreet undergarments with this style dress since it is so form-fitted. Watch for garment lines under the dress, especially in the back.
The high-low style offers a versatile look for your wedding day! The short front of the dress shows off your killer legs and shoes, while the back keeps the formal elegance of a night time event. So if you're torn between looking sexy or elegant, the high-low style wedding dress is a great choice. With many different cuts and styles to choose from, the high-low style dress can be worn by many body types.
The sheath dress style has a narrow shape that flows straight down from the neckline to the floor. It conforms to the body and shows your curves. Like the mermaid style dress, the sheath dress is best for slender or petite figures. The design of this dress helps petite girls appear taller. Tip: The sheath dress design can constrict your movement, depending on the fabric or the way it's made. So if you want to dance the night away, consider this when selecting your wedding dress.
The ball gown has a fitted bodice with a full skirt. Similar to an A-line dress, the ball gown works with many different fabrics, necklines and sleeves - providing an array of looks to choose from. This style can be worn by most body types, but probably best for slender or pear-shaped figures since the full skirt shows off the waist-line and hides the lower body. However, if you are short, a better choice may be an A-line dress. You still get the princess effect of a ball gown, but it gives a more balanced design for your height.
The A-Line style dress is a flattering design for almost any body type. Its shape provides a fitted design around the torso and then a narrow but loose flow to the knee, or to the floor. The long and narrow line of the design can make you look taller and slimmer. Since the A-line dress comes in so many variations, different styles of the design or fabric can bring out your best features while minimizing your less desirable features.
1. Do a complete run through at least 2 weeks before the big day: try on your bridal gown, shoes, accessories and even do a test make-up session. This will give you enough time to change or revise anything that might not be right. For example: you might be using new make-up. so be sure your skin doesn't react to a brand you are not used to. 2. Do a hair try-out session first. Don't wait until your wedding day to figure out what to do with your hair. It might cause unnecessary stress. Choose a hair style that holds up in different weather conditions. 3. Break in those shoes and make sure your dress fits just the way you want it to - with enough time for alterations if necessary.
Did you know. as legend has it, many years ago, bridesmaids wore dresses similar to the bride to ward off evil spirits. By wearing similar dresses, it was thought to confuse the spirit as to who the bride was.*
Since then, bridesmaid dresses have clearly evolved. Bridesmaid dresses are almost always a color contrary to the bride's traditional white wedding dress.
Being that it's up to the bride to select the bridesmaid dress style and color, bridesmaids are sometimes at a loss for a dress that works right for them. The biggest consideration a bride can give her bridesmaids is to the various body shapes and budgets of the bridal party. One option for this is having the bridesmaids dresses be of the same color, but the style and fabrics vary according to each bridesmaid. Though the dress styles and fabrics vary, the color keeps unity within the bridal party.
Bridesmaids dresses come in various lengths such as floor, tea, knee, short and even mini. It's up to the bride to decide which length she prefers for her bridesmaids, but the length of the dress should not exceed the bride's. A tea length dress is a great choice for daytime weddings, while floor length gowns are more appropriate for evening and very formal weddings.
