Getting married is going to be one of the most exciting events of your life. It’s a big day for you and your partner, but it’s also a big day for both of your families.
Because of this important event, you will have tons of things to do in preparation. You’ll need to find a place to get married, find a place to have your reception, rent all of the necessary tables and chairs, take care of the food and cake, and much more. With that being said, there are a few things that you’ll need to do that are more personal than all of these other things for your guests. Even if you have a wedding planner helping you out, one of the things that you will want to take care of personally is buying your own wedding dress.
The trouble with wedding dress shopping
One of the issues that many women face when looking for their wedding dress is how to choose the perfect dress for their particular body type. Of course all women have different body types, so it makes sense that different dress styles are going to look good on different women. With that being said, you want to make sure that you choose a dress that you truly fall in love with. This is your big day after all.
Features to consider for various body types
There are several features you need to consider on your future wedding dress. For example, how long do you want the dress to be? More formal weddings have gowns that hit the floor, and quite formal weddings have gowns that also have a train dragging behind the dress. Make sure you know what you want in your dress. Any link should look good on anybody type.
When it comes to the neckline, however, there’re definitely some things to consider that will depend on your personal body type. For example, if you have a larger chest, you should get a lower neckline. You don’t have to show a lot of cleavage off, but a high neck line on someone with a large chest will make the chest look bigger. In addition, if you feel more comfortable hiding your arms, you might want to consider a short sleeve or long sleeve dress.
The bodice is the final thing you’ll want to think about. Cinching in the waste looks good on just about everyone, but if you’re looking for a more Bohemian look, a high empire waist can be flattering as well. The skirt is part of the bodice as well, and it may flare out or stay slim against the legs and hips. Consider all of these features and try on multiple dresses to get the perfect style.
