Finding a beautiful wedding gown can be one of the most challenging phases a bride must overcome. Most women have dreamed of their wedding day ever since they were a little girl, dreaming is easy, but actualizing the dream is a big task, not to mention turning the dream dress into reality. Don’t fret! Keep an inquisitive mind in the search for that beautiful wedding will be a breeze.
The Style for You
In finding your beautiful wedding gown, the first step you must take is to figure out what style you want. Wedding gowns have five basic beautiful and elegant styles. Select the style that showcases your character, flaunts your best assets and will make you feel like a queen on your special day. The first style would be A-line dresses which are fitted around the bodice and eventually flare out at the waist. A-line dresses are one of the most popular styles and are often referred to as “princess dresses.”
The ball gown is another popular wedding gown style. It isn’t the kind of gown that you might imagine to be part of fairy tales; it’s a tight fitted bodice with a full skirt. The empire dress is the third style, with this cut the skirt starts falling from under the bust line with an elegant downward flow, this is a timeless and beautiful wedding gown style. The sheath or column dress is a style that’s a bit more modern, it isn’t a form fitting dress but is simply a straight line all the way down, perfect for petite ladies because it creates the illusion of a longer body. Last but not the least, there’s the mermaid style for a wedding gown, a fitted dress with a flaring skirt from the knees.
Sleeves and Necklines
The five basic styles also have different styles of necklines and sleeves, try mix-matching the various kinds to figure out the one that looks great on you. The makings of a beautiful wedding gown would consist of the wide selection of necklines: bateau, scoop, halter, square and v-necklines. To find out which neckline suits you well, try on all the different neckline styles.
Aside from the neckline you’ll have to settle on the type of sleeves you want for your dress. You might want to take in consideration the time of your marriage; obviously long sleeves aren’t advisable for summer weddings. You’ll also need to figure out where you’re getting married because some churches do not allow strapless dresses. Speaking of which, strapless gowns are becoming very popular now. Sleeveless and strapless designs make beautiful wedding gowns. You can also find beautiful wedding gowns with long sleeves, 3/4 length sleeves and short sleeves.
