The white gown and the white picket fence, the ultimate fancy of every little girl. The whimsy of being swooped off her feet into his arms and the happily ever after, it all comes to its realization at your wedding. While it cannot be helped with a husband, wink! You can certainly choose the right dress.
Bridesmaid dresses come in all styles and one has to be very wary of a number of things- the right style, the right colour! What to do with so many choices?
Types of Bridesmaid dresses:
The Empire Line Gown
The perfect choice for pear-shaped brides, it de-emphasizes your bust by raising your waistline, and the rest of the dress billows down to your hem. It takes the attention away for your bust and transfers its right to the neckline, making it the perfect choice for girls with smaller busts.
The A-Line Gown
It offers a great choice to women with larger bust and accentuates their curves. It is also good for almost every other figure type because it creates an illusion of curves down below, as it flows in the outline of an A.
A tightly fitted bodice and a full skirt, it can help create the illusion of an hourglass figure with enough stress on the waist. It hides your lower body as the gown billows down dramatically low.
It has a semi-full skirt that converges below the hips. It is quite similar to a mermaid silhouette.
The Sheath Gown
It is much better for the petite figures as the dress fits very closely and makes you appear a little taller. Although it is not a good choice for women with larger bottoms as it does little to hide.
It closely follows your figure from the head to the knees and billows from there. It can be great for the skinny as well as the voluptuous types as it highlights every curve and can be your go-to gown for a sexy look.
Be mindful of dress color and skin tones
Everyone has a color that makes their skin pop and certain others that may make you look a little pallid. Blush and champagne can often wash you out, so it is best to avoid them if they do not make you look good. In case you think it can be a great fit, it is best to opt for a spray tan.
Hair color can be another determinant, you need to be very mindful of the color of your dress if you are a redhead. The best color to go for such cases would be purple.
One of the biggest mistakes that you can make on your wedding day is getting a little too swayed by those Pinterest images and freezing silly on the momentous occasion. A faux fur coat works best for winter and with the right color, it can give a very coherent look.
The right poise, the right dress can do wonders; regardless, do not forget to smile.
