Choosing the bridal wear for D-day
Posted by AllmaJess on December 2nd, 2014
Every girl, whether she agrees to or not, has always dreamt of that day – her wedding day. The perfect location, the perfect ceremony, the perfect arrangements, the perfect food spread and the perfect bridal dress; you have dreamt of looking your best on that day. Bridal wear is the most important part in the wedding arrangements. It is first thing that you should think about once you decide to tie the knot. Selecting a dress however can turn into a nightmare if you do not plan it out carefully. To help you to decide on that one dress, there are online couture stores ready with their best options on display.
Bridal dresses have a huge number of options. From the design to the style to the fabric, you have many varieties to choose from. You can go for a strapless bridal wear or a mermaid style or one-shoulder gown or even a fishtail gown. When selecting a style that would best suit you, a good research comes handy. The first important one is the silhouette. A ball gown dress covers a lot of area and puffs up all around you. A mermaid dress is narrow all the way to the middle of the thighs and then spreads out like the fins of a mermaid. An A-line dress makes a gradual opening from the waist itself. A sheath dress is very simple and falls on the body with ease. Choose one which best suits your body shape.
Another important part of a bridal dress is the neckline. While most women prefer a strapless gown for its sheer elegance, some are comfortable with the illusion neckline. In an illusion neckline, the dress has lacework around the neck. This can also be achieved by wearing a lace shawl. One-shoulder bridal wear has become quite popular and has recently featured in many fashion weeks along with the V-neckline dress. The V-neck is often adorned with jewellery to add to the charm and the one-shoulder dress is mostly a ruffled one.
Your body type is an essential feature on which you should base your bridal dress. Petite body types should avoid ball gowns and opt for a sheath dress. Also, a V-neckline adds height to a petite frame. Empire waistlines help to create the illusion of long legs. You can opt for ruffles but maintain the length. If you are plus-sized then go for asymmetrical pleats and body hugging bridal wear. Chiffon loose sleeves will help you to cover up. Cummerbund style waistline helps to add a slimming effect. If you have a well-endowed figure then a square neckline looks best while the sweetheart neckline with straps adds balance to your busty frame.
The online stores have bridal dresses straight from the designers’ studio that are a runway hit. You can even get tailor-made gowns. Check out their websites and use filters for size, neckline, fabric, colour, length, straps etc. to narrow down your choice. A lacy ivory coloured gown or a beaded taffeta dress, the options are varied. Add matching accessories with your bridal wear like bracelets and necklaces. For a natural look wear flowers on your hair and you are ready to take the vows.
