What’s Your Favorite Style of Wedding Dress?

There’s a pretty good reason why one of the most anticipated days in every woman’s life is her wedding day. You’re going to be the center of attention, so you have to look your best. It’s not the sort of thing you can really avoid, let alone ignore. Sure, your mother loves you for what you are, but what about your mother-in-law? Also, many brides-to-be want their guests to be impressed, and that’s totally okay. Right wedding dress can (and most probably will) help you with that.

The only problem is that there’s like zillion wedding dresses available for purchase. Most are designed around a few basic styles and shapes, so once you have a list of ideas from your “bridestorming” (wow, I just invented a new word, hooray for me!) session, you can sort them based on their silhouette.

A-line dress is fitted on the top around the bodice and flows in an unbroken line down to the hemline. It’s a simple dress, great for most brides.

Mermaid dress is form fitting through the top and middle. It has a skirt that flares out near at the bottom to resemble the shape of a mermaid’s tail.

Sheath dress fits a narrow shape, flowing straight from the neckline to the hem. It is simple and especially complimentary to the slender physique.

Ball dresses have a fitted bodice and a full skirt. They are what little girls picture when they think of being a bride. That’s not surprising, because after all, Cinderella wore a ball dress.

To conclude, here’s something no one wants to talk about, whether traditional or modern bride. Well, I shouldn’t say no one but pretty much every bride I know has ignored this. Despite the common saying, you don’t have to look and feel like a princess, because you are not one (sorry Kate, I didn’t know you read this blog). Finding the gown that flatters your figure, fits well and feels good is actually all you need.
