Mywedding.com is a great online wedding planning resource and The Matthews House, a charming wedding venue in Cary, NC, recently shared this post from the Mywedding blog.
We all want to know which style of clothing looks best on us - especially when we are choosing a wedding dress! So here are some tips;
Hourglass Figure: Choose any dress that emphasizes your small waist. Popular choices are corset gowns, two-piece dresses, and ball gowns with a fitted top.
Pear-Shaped Figure: Full A-line silhouettes, V-neck tops, bateau necklines, scoop-neck tops, and strapless necklines all disguise fuller hips and the pear shaped body types best. These looks also balance torso to bust proportions. For a headpiece that adds slender lines, go with a Chapel length bridal veil.
Apple-Shaped Figure: Princess-line and drop waist wedding dresses are most flattering. You can also try out A-line gowns as well as dresses with plunging necklines. Go heavy on the accessories to draw the eye up.
Petite Brides: Sheath wedding dresses are a great choice as they tend to elongate. Most importantly keep it simple without too much drama or detail.
Tall Brides: Tall girls have all the luck! Almost any style gown will work for a towering bride. But do avoid empire-waist dresses to avoid the “tent-as-wedding-dress” look.
Broad Shouldered: Steer clear of halter and off-the-shoulder necklines, which tend to accentuate the shoulders. Instead, try strapless and scoop necklines. Delicate jewelry works best for broad shouldered brides as well.
Full-Busted: You may need a little help from a corset to get your girls under control. After that is taken care of, look for dresses with a higher neckline to draw less attention to the chest area.
Full Arms: Look for gowns with off-the-shoulder straps or sheer fabric over the arms. You can also find a flattering formal short jacket to wear over your dress. Also try dresses with a longer sleeve. You’ll just have to make sure the sleeves aren’t too tight.
