Finding the Perfect Wedding Gown

May 15, 2008
Picking out the perfect wedding gown need not be a stressful and frustrating experience. Think of it as one amazingly long and sometimes tiresome shopping trip during which you get to try all the fabulous gown styles and dress shapes available.

The wedding gown refers to the dress or the attire worn by the bride on her wedding day. Since for most women getting married is a onetime thing, it's only right to find the best wedding gown for you.

Wedding gowns come in different shapes, styles, colors and sizes. When selecting your wedding gown, it's important that you take into consideration three primary factors: your body shape, your physical assets and your problem areas. The perfect wedding gown should fit you well while giving you the perfect silhouette. If the form, the style, the shape and the fit is right, then your gown ought to hug your curves in all the right places, display your best features without going overboard, and mask whatever problem areas you'd rather keep hidden.

Does this sound too good to be true? Well, believe us when we say that it isn't. Brides, like wedding gowns, come in different shapes and sizes. The key to finding the perfect wedding gown is knowing your body and knowing what style and dress shape works for you.

Finding out if you're pear-shaped, an inverted triangle, rectangular in shape, or a perfect hourglass can help you determine what dress shape suits you best. If still undecided, then go for universally flattering styles. An A-Line skirt, for example, would look good on you regardless of body shape. The only rule you have to follow with A-Line gowns is to remember that the larger the hips, the wider the skirt base. This skirt style works regardless if you're tall or petite.

If you're statuesque or if you're of medium height, then consider going for a ball gown dress shape. The ball gown dress shape is one of the best wedding gown styles for the bride with a gorgeous hourglass figure. If, however, you're on the petite side or if you have a small bust size, then the fitted bodice of the ball gown might make you appear flat as a board. Aside from the dress shape, remember to choose the right wedding gown neckline that helps enhance your natural assets and downplays your not-so-flattering features.

When it comes to wedding gowns, the choices can be dizzying. To find the perfect wedding gown, look for the appropriate wedding gown style that flatters your built and your complexion.

It's highly advisable that you research your body type before you seek out that elusive perfect wedding gown. There is nothing more disappointing than having the idea of the perfect gown, only to find out later that it just doesn't work for you. Don't be afraid to ask for second and third opinions from close friends and relatives. Try all the gowns you fancy before making your choice. An expensive but highly effective alternative is to hire a professional or a wedding dress designer to help you find the perfect wedding gown style.

Remember: never settle for something less than you deserve, and keep in mind that you only deserve the best.
