Know what you really want to wear. However, have an open mind and let our experienced consultants guide you. Some gowns with very little hanger appeal look wonderful on a real body and some wonderful looking gowns may not be suitable to your body type. Many of our brides have found their perfect gown by trusting their consultant.

Bring along someone who can help you make a decision. Your mother, or a truly good friend whose opinion you value, but don’t bring too many people along. Too many contradictory opinions often only end up confusing the bride. You may want to prescreen the gowns and only bring an audience for your final buying decision. Be prepared to say YES when you find your perfect dress.

Shopping lace wedding dresses online should be careful. There are many copy houses that feature their inferior gowns online, even using the same pictures as the real designers to trick the public. Don’t get caught in the scam…order your bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses only from an authorized retailer. You can always find authorized retailers listed on the designers websites. The peace of mind and security of ordering from an authorized retailer far outweighs the savings and headaches you receive when you order online.

Start shopping as soon as you have set your wedding date. Limit the number of shops that you visit in one day. You want to make sure that you can remember the gowns you love. Don’t get white blindness and thoroughly confused. As soon as you have found your dream gown, plan on ordering it without delay. Also plan to allow time for any alterations that may be needed to ensure that your gown fits perfectly. Remember our goal is no stress!

Choose Wedding Dress According to Your Body Type

Buying your own wedding dress can feel stressful enough, so imagine how overwhelming it can feel to find the perfect dress for your entire bridal party. There are so many things you should consider before choosing your wedding gown, here are some suggestions from Formalshop, read on and hope these tips would give you some help.

sheer A line wedding dress

The A-Line Gown – This is a great shape for all figures, in particular those with a larger bust. The full skirt of the A-line can also hide a larger lower body, or create the illusion of curves on a narrow frame. Since the A-line dress is so versatile, simple modifications to the neckline, waistline, or fabric can accentuate your best features and hide those your not so fond of!

The Ballgown – The ball gown style has a fitted bodice and a dramatic full skirt. While this style can accommodate most body types, the ball gown is ideal for slender or pear-shaped figures as the full skirt helps to accentuate the waist and hide the lower body. If you have a large bust, this style will help to create the hourglass look since it emphasizes the waistline due to the fitted bodice and natural or dropped waist.

The Sheath Gown – This style fits very closely to the contours of the body from head-to-toe. Similar to the mermaid style, the sheath dress is best worn by lean figures, both short and tall. The elongating nature of this design will help petite brides appear taller. However, the column dress does not allow much room for hiding problem areas, such as a larger lower body. It can conceal minor flaws if you opt for a constructed style that will stay in place, but the slip style will be unforgiving. Also, boxy figures that do not have natural curves may consider accenting the waistline with a separate bodice or sash to create the illusion of a defined waist.

The Mermaid – The mermaid cut is not for everyone. This daring design is best worn by slender figures, both short and tall and it is not particularly well suited for those brides with fuller figures. However, if you are on the voluptuous side and want to accentuate your curves, this is the perfect dress for you. The most important thing to keep in mind when considering a Mermaid style dress is whether or not you will feel comfortable wearing it on your big day. You may have a flawless figure perfect for this type of dress, but if you do not feel confident in it, it is not worth choosing.

Choose Wedding Dress According to Your Figure

There are so many things you should take in mind when choosing your wedding gown, knowing your figure is the key to find your dream wedding dress. If you don’t know how to choose the right style, read on the below things and hope these would help you.

A line sheer wedding dress

For Pear-Shaped Figure: A skirt that gradually flares out in an A formation from the natural waist to the floor, highlighting the narrowness of the midsection and floating away from the hips and thighs. A spaghetti-strap bodice or a V neckline will also showcase a more slender upper body. A classic A-line wedding dress lends itself to formal weddings, but it can also be dressed down when made from a more casual fabric, like eyelet lace or raw-silk shantung.

For Busty Figure: A dress with a scooped neckline. It will open up your face and display your décolletage without showing too much cleavage. If you love the look of strapless gowns, choose one that has a slight dip along the neckline, like a sweetheart, rather than a style that goes straight across.Fabric on the bodice that has a sheen to it will add volume and call attention to your chest. Material that is ruched will have the same effect.

For Apple-Shaped Figure: A dress that cinches in at the smallest point on the waistline, then flares out into a gradual A shape. Opt for a bodice with a lot of texture to it―think ruche or lace detailing―that will camouflage and fit snugly, creating a corsetlike effect. The most slenderizing neckline for you is one with a deep V, which will draw eyes toward the vertical, not the horizontal. Avoid trumpet dress styles, which emphasize the area where your body is widest and flare out at the legs and the knees, where you are most slender.
