Having recently written about minimoons I thought that it would write a wedding related post and what’s better than one about wedding dresses.
One of the most important parts of the wedding is the wedding dress. Let’s face it when you watch the couple walk down the aisle the first thing you will look at is the dress. Whether you fancy something classic, elegant and sophisticated or something a bit more Big Fat Gypsy Wedding style the key to choosing the wedding dress is getting something that YOU like and feel comfortable in let’s face it the plan is to do this once right? With so many styles to choose from it can be a daunting task so before you decide have look around visit a few bridal shops look through their rails and don’t allow anyone to make you feel pressured.
Choosing the Style of the Dress
When choosing the style of your dress you need to take into consideration your body shape. What type of dress will flatter your figure without exaggerating flaws. Look at dresses within your price range, if you struggle and need to increase the budget for the dress look first at where you can make budget reductions elsewhere to increase the dress budget. Don’t forget you only wear the dress once! Try on some dresses. In fact, while you’re at it try on loads of dresses, it is great fun and helps you get a good idea of the styles that will suit you most. Some places will make a dress to your specification so if you like certain things from one dress and other features of another in some cases these can be combined to create your perfect wedding dress which is what I did.
Here are a few dresses to get you started. Having popped online to find dresses at a range of locations I then messed up a bit as I loved so many of the dresses over on the Pronovias website that I couldn’t bring myself to look elsewhere, at least not for today’s post. They have a gorgeous range of wedding dresses that I simply had to share with you.
This gorgeous tulle and lace mermaid style dress is gorgeous and helps show off a great figure. A little different with the addition of a beige underlay this adds a little colour to the classic white/cream dress. I love the delicate design of the sleeves which adds to this dresses beauty. The off the shoulder bodice with bateau neckline allows for a feminine yet not too revealing look which is complemented well by the plunging V at the back.
Although much simpler than the previous mermaid style this dress is also gorgeous in its own right. Beware it shows everything so you need a great figure to get away with wearing this one.
This stunning strapless silk dress is simple yet elegant in style, a timeless classic that I really love. The organza flower with decorative feathers is a great addition to finish off the dress.
This fabulous Princess dress is guaranteed to turn heads with its flattering sweetheart neckline and pretty pink underlay. Truly fit to make any bride feel like a Princess on her special day. The design also allows for a curvier body that the dresses featured above.
