Picking out a wedding dress is one of the most exhausting things you’ll ever do – but it’s also one of the most wonderful things you’ll ever do. From the moment you were able to discern white from black and a dress from a pair of pants, you’ve been dreaming about your wedding day – how you’d glide down the aisle like a princess, your Prince Charming standing at the altar, ready to receive you.
Your mother would be dabbing tears from the corners of her eyes from the front row with the handkerchief you’d had specifically embroidered for the occasion, your father would be walking you down the aisle. Your best friend would be grinning from ear to ear as the maid of honor, and your bridesmaids would be beautiful and glowing.
Suffice it to say, your wedding dress is a big deal – it is for almost every woman out there (even those who don’t like to admit it). Now that your wedding day is finally here and you’re about to wed the man of your dreams, you’re waking up each night in a cold sweat wondering how you will ever find that perfect dress. What if you can’t lose those last ten pounds? What if he doesn’t like it?
What if you can’t afford your dream gown? Here’s what you need to know: number one, you’ve got to relax. Everything will be perfect. You will look beautiful even if you wear a paper bag – that pre-wedding glow will do wonders for your skin and your aura. The dress is just the final piece of the puzzle, and you can rest assured that you will find that perfect dress.
If you’re looking for something modern yet simple, consider a short gown. That’s right, a short gown. We’re not talking a mini dress of epic prom proportions, but a strapless ilk satin faced organza dress adorned with lace appliques and a beautiful handmade silk satin floral corsage at the back. This ivory gown features a sweetheart neckline and hits just above your knee.
It’s at once sophisticated and playful, modern yet classic – all the things that a wedding dress should be. You’re sure to stand out in a gown like this, precisely because it’s not a gown. It’s a dress unlike any other – and don’t all brides want to be unlike any other on their wedding day?
If long, romantic and ethereal describes the dress of your dreams, look no further than a strapless long hand-draped English net slim gown. Adorned with an ornate Venice lace layout on the bodice and along the entirety of the skirt hem, this ivory gown is fit for a sophisticated princess.
Gowns that just graze the ground as you walk make you look as though you’re floating as you come down the aisle, and the strapless sweetheart neckline with a slightly plunging back is romantic and intricately done. This is a gown fit for a princess, but it’s not at all ostentatious.
If you want something that truly hugs your figure, consider a silk satin slim gown with a draped empire bodice and beautifully dramatic V-neck straps. Adorned at one shoulder with hand-made silk flowers, this beautiful gown is cut in a mermaid shape, meaning it flares out at the bottom but hugs your hips and accentuates your waist. If you’re a slim petite girl, this dress will add the curves you’re looking for.
Those who are exceptionally curvy may want to avoid gowns like this, as they’ll just accentuate your problem spots. With a low-cut back, this gown is sexy, but not overly so. It’s positively beautiful, and can be custom-fit to your measurements.
If you’d like to travel back in time with your gown, consider a strapless fitted Venice lace gown adorned with floral embroidery and crystals. This gown features a back train that dazzles as you glide down the aisle, and, while it doesn’t have traditional sleeves, it offers lace embroidery on the arms, highlighting your shoulders with a silhouette that mimics a boat neck.
If you’ve got a beautiful collarbone and sculpted shoulders, this is the gown for you, as it will highlight your best features. The floral embroidery on this gown is quite intricate, and you’ll find a satin bow and streamers at the back train. A nod to a time when wedding dresses were intricate and beaded, this gown is positively romantic.
If you’re looking for a showstopper, look no further than a strapless cotton tricotine ball gown with a peplum bodice and detailed organza petals. These petals adorn both the waist and the shoulders, and the large skirt looks as though it has a bustle underneath it. Cinderella would be proud – this is a true princess gown! If you want to feel as though you’re part of a fairytale during your wedding, this is the gown for you.
Be sure to consider these outstanding options before picking out your perfect wedding gown.
