“That Wedding Dress!

Find that dress that makes you feel like wow! Choosing the perfect wedding dress can be an exciting and sometimes overwhelming experience. With so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start. In this honest blog, we will discuss some key considerations when choosing a wedding dress, including size, shape, and height.

Size: When it comes to choosing a wedding dress, it’s important to find a dress that fits your body type. Every bride is different, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to finding the perfect dress. It’s important to try on dresses in different sizes and styles to see what looks best on your body. 

Don’t be discouraged

if you don’t fit into the sample sizes in the store – many bridal shops have options for plus size brides or can order dresses in larger sizes.


The shape of your wedding dress should complement your body shape. If you’re pear-shaped, a dress with a fitted bodice and flowing skirt can be very flattering. If you’re apple-shaped, a dress with an empire waist or A-line skirt can create a more balanced look. If you’re hourglass-shaped, a dress with a mermaid or trumpet silhouette can accentuate your curves. It’s important to try on different styles to see what looks best on your body.


Your height can also be a factor when choosing a wedding dress. If you’re petite, you may want to choose a dress with a shorter hemline to avoid looking overwhelmed by a long dress. If you’re tall, you may want to choose a dress with a longer hemline to avoid looking like you’re wearing a mini-dress. It’s also important to consider the height of your shoes when choosing a dress – if you plan to wear high heels, you may want to choose a longer dress to avoid tripping.


Ultimately, the most important thing when choosing a wedding dress is to choose a dress that makes you feel beautiful and confident. Don’t worry too much about following trends or fitting into a certain mould – the perfect dress is one that makes you feel like the best version of yourself. And remember, it’s okay to take your time and try on lots of dresses before you find the right one – this is your special day, and you deserve to feel amazing.

Another consideration when choosing a wedding dress is whether to have sleeves or go sleeveless. Sleeveless dresses can be more popular for summer weddings or for brides who want a more modern or minimalist look. However, if you’re getting married in cooler weather or want a more traditional or modest look, you may want to consider a dress with sleeves. There are many different sleeve styles to choose from, including cap sleeves, short sleeves, long sleeves, and even off-the-shoulder or illusion sleeves.

It’s also a good idea to take someone with you when you go wedding dress shopping who will give you honest feedback. This can be a trusted friend or family member who knows your style and preferences well. They can help you make decisions about which dresses to try on, and offer feedback on how the dresses look on you. However, it’s important to remember that ultimately, the decision should be yours – choose a dress that makes you feel beautiful and confident, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Then you’ll feel just WOW for your wedding photos.
