Newly engaged ladies can get quite nervous when it comes to shopping for the perfect wedding dress. Thing is, even if you’ve dreamt about the perfect dress during your entire life, selecting a frock for your special day is not an easy task. It certainly doesn’t help that the pages of your favorite bridal magazines are constantly splashed with picture after picture of wedding dresses, with each one looking better than the other.
Indeed, there’s no doubt that selecting the perfect wedding dress can be a difficult, almost overwhelming task for brides-to-be. To narrow it down to just a few choices, don’t hesitate to make a list of the most popular types of wedding dresses and then make your selection according to your budget, personal preferences, body types, accessories and overall color scheme. A-line dresses, for example, is still among the most popular- if not the most popular- wedding gown. Superbly flattering on various types of figures, A-line dresses are quite nipped in at the waist with a slightly flared skirt. This type of dress is very suited to curvaceous brides to be because it can very easily hide any bulge or lump.
For a more romantic touch, however, don’t hesitate to go for a Princess-like ball gown. Not unlike the dresses that we so often see on Disney princesses, this type of wedding dress will certainly bring a dreamy feel to your wedding day. But, on the other hand, Princess-like dresses are extremely, extremely flared on the hips and can add pounds to your silhouette if you’re short and curvy. Strapless sweetheart necklines are also quite suited to this type of wedding dress, which can be quite an advantage for ladies who want to display a bit of cleavage on their special day.
A new, emerging trend- particularly among celebrities- is the pale pink wedding dress. This is definitely the type of gown that you can go for if you still want a traditional-looking dress but with just a hint of color.
On the other hand, if you want to go for a more vintage look, don’t hesitate to look into Victorian-like wedding dresses. Straight, high-necked and often made from flowing silk or satin, these gowns are particularly suited to tall and slender ladies. The best way to accessorize Victorian wedding gowns is to go for a classic look that includes teardrop earrings, choker necklaces and pearl tiaras. Alternatively, if you’re planning a wedding on the beach or if you simply want a more contemporary affair, you may even go for a short wedding dress that skims your upper thighs.
