The wedding day is one of the most important days in a woman’s life. It is one day that is all about the bride. Another crucial part of the day is the wedding gown. Once you start planning for your big day, you also start imagining yourself in the white gown.

Everyone has their preferences. However, many brides make the wrong choice of selecting a style that appears striking in the magazine, series or movie. It is important to understand that every body is different; therefore, one must choose the wedding gown to fit her body type.

Here are a few things to keep in mind while hunting for your dream dress,

Tips For Brides To Buy A Perfect Wedding Gown

Shades Of White Matter

White is the traditional colour that women wear on their big day; however, it is crucial to choose the right variation among natural white, champagne, super-bright white, alabaster, ivory and light gold. 

The super-bright colour is out of fashion these days, and natural white goes best with chiffon and silk fabric. However, it does not make you look slim if that is your approach.

Ivory, champagne, alabaster and light gold are famous colours that suit most skin tones and are available in various types of fabrics. You can also customise a dress in these shades with two different fabrics or elaborate craftsmanship.

Shape Of The Body

Every woman has a different body shape ranging from apple and hourglass to pear and triangle. The shapes only define the rough boundaries of the figure and help to make the right choice while trying on different gowns.

For example, triangular bodies have broad shoulders but narrow hips. Therefore, V-neck dresses suit them the most. Pear bodies have shapes opposite to triangular bodies and must wear a dress that defines their waist and hips. Women with hourglass bodies mostly fit in all kinds of styles, and apple bodies look stunning in shallow necklines with an A-cut dress.

Style Of The Dress

Bridal outfits can be categorised into three broad styles - Vintage, Classic and Bohemian. Classic is a timeless design that you can amplify with the desired necklines, embellishments and textures.

Bohemian mostly expresses the personal style of the bride, and such gowns are perfect for casual ceremony settings. Vintage style, on the other hand, offers impeccable dresses with elegant fringe, ruffles, beading and silhouettes.

Fabric Of The Dress

Depending on your body type and comfort, a bride can get a wedding dress in brocade, tulle, mikado, organza and satin fabrics. The appropriate fabric can accentuate your flawless curves and features.

Satin and Mikado fabrics are suitable for every season and can adapt to various kinds of fashion styles. Brocade is favourable for winter or fall weddings, whereas Organza is the perfect choice for warm climate weddings. Tulle is a sheer fabric that appears impeccable with lace designs.

Select The Neckline To Suit Your Breasts

The neckline depends on whether you have a small bust or large breasts. Square necklines or V-necks suit perfectly the brides with small breasts. You can choose a V-neck with dramatic or slight plunge and use straps with a square neckline.

If you have large breasts, halter cut, sweetheart or asymmetric necklines will offer a flawless look. While halter cut accentuates your shoulder, the asymmetric neckline draws focus on the face of the bride. The sweetheart neckline amplifies the bust area.

Choose The Right Length For Sleeves

Similar to the necklines, brides must choose among long sleeves, short sleeves and sleeveless wedding gowns. Long sleeves add a sophisticated look and make the bride look tall.

Short sleeves are perfect for a bohemian or vintage look. By adding dazzling details to them, you will look breathtaking. Sleeveless gowns have been popular for a very long time and offer comfort to brides who like a little casual look blended with elegance. 

Well! The hunt for the perfect dress does not end with the above list. Brides need to set aside a budget, narrow down their favourite designers and take into account the season. Follow the above tips to look gorgeous and make the big day most memorable.
