The bride is always the center of attraction in any wedding and the wedding dress the major highlight. The truth is that as a bride you will be remembered as much as your gown is and you therefore want to be stunning on your big day. Weddings are happy events that bring lots of excitement, especially for a newly wed couple. With so many gown options and designers out there, it really can’t be that hard to look beautiful. Below are a few simple but very helpful tips that will ensure you look glamorous in your gown on your wedding day.
Tip 1 – Choose comfort before anything else
You will be wearing your gown for the most part of the ceremony and you need to be at your most comfortable. A comfortable bride is a happy and beautiful bride. As far as comfort goes, the fabric that you select take center stage. Different bridal fabrics are suitable for different gown styles and will give different levels of comfort. It is also important to remember that whereas some fabrics are best for spring weddings, others will make the best choices for summer whereas others are suitable for any given season. Make sure you know all about the fabric options and select accordingly with comfort on your mind above everything else.
Tip 2 – Go for embroidered gown
Wedding dress styles are numerous, but unlike back in the days when plain solid colors were the in thing, you can choose a fancy embroidered gown to stand out on your big day. Sequins, beads and silky threads can all be used for the embroidery to give different looks and feels to the gown and you can have them down in a style that works for your body shape. You can make the work easier by choosing embroidered bridal fabrics that are decorated partially or all-over depending on your personal preferences. You can also decide to go with bridal lace fabrics that are also embroidered to look gorgeous.
Tip 3 – Choose the perfect neckline for your body type
Just like choosing any other outfit, your body type should guide you to the best. The neckline is one of the major areas that you need to pay attention to if at all you are to get a dress that works for you. When it comes to wedding gowns, the most beautiful necklines are off shoulder, high neck and deep V necklines. What suits one body type may not be as flattering for the other. For instance, apple shaped women look very good in deep V-necklines over the high necked ones. Know your body type first and what neck style suits it best and then make the right decision.
Tip 4 – Play with the color a little
Whereas white still makes the most popular and traditional color for the wedding gown you can still stand out by adding a little color to your gown. Other bridal colors that you can pull off gorgeously are celestial blue, rose pink, ivory and champagne.
