The wedding gown is most important choice for a bride during her wedding. Every bride dreams of an enchanted wedding and a beautiful gown is what can make the bride look like a princess.
Choosing a wedding gown that flatters your figure and body type is something that should be remembered. Make sure that the dress matches your personality. Your selection of wedding gown should be based on what looks good on you and not necessarily, what the current fashion is.
Your wedding gown should be in theme with your wedding. If you are having a traditional and formal wedding, you should choose a very formal and full-length wedding gown. If you are having a casual wedding, such as a garden wedding or a teatime reception, then your wedding gown should be less formal. This would include a trendy wedding gown, that is less formal and more fun.
Here are some bridal gown words that you will want to know before hitting the bridal stores, knowing these words will allow you to choose a dress that is right for you.
A-line: a fitted bodice that flares out to the hem creating an A shape.
Ballroom: This is the classic Cinderella type gown, full skirt, off -the-shoulder and a natural waistline. This type of gown is great for the full-figured bride.
Basque waist- the waistline begins below the waist, forming a U or V shape: slenderizing: a good choice for brides with wide hips.
Empire: Cropped body, high waist, slightly flared skirt: not a good choice for brides that are large busted, along with clingy fabrics and heavily decorated body.
Miniskirt- The hem is above the knee, and typically has a train either short or long.
Princess: Slim fitting body with emphasis on the waist. Typically worn by people to give the appearance that they are smaller than what they are.
Sheath: Fabric continues down the body from the shoulders to the ankles for a close-fitting look, with no waistline.
Picking up your dress: It is actually very smart to leave the dress at the bridal shop even if the dress is ready far in advance of the wedding day. The bridal shop should be better equipped to store and keep the dress fresh and pressed.
