After a long break (due to a very busy wedding season) The Bride Loves is back! (at least pretend to be excited!) Kicking off the new wedding year with dress types!
The most common question I get asked when designing bridal gowns is ‘what style of dress will suit me?’ I will encourage brides to step into a boutique and try on the dress silhouette they think they want. I emphasise the word think, because more often than not, a bride has had an image of her dress since she was a little girl (or you did if you were like me). This dress usually consists of a cinderella like gown – which in reality, suits a very select amount of people.
Before making a bridal appointment, however, there is a very easy way to narrow down your options. Your wedding dress, your makeup, your hair, are all ways to make yourself look like a more glamorous version on you – the key word being you. Your dress should highlight your best assets and cleverly conceal the bits and bobs that you don’t mind hiding so much. To make things easier here are the most common body types and the silhouettes best suited to them.
Remember, you may not fit solely into one category- most people don’t! Just take the best parts of each category and customise to fit you!
