We wanted to help make the planning process a little easier with a quick guide to choosing a gown that flatters you in every way! From top to bottom, we want you to feel beautiful, here are a few common details of a wedding dress, and how you can tell with shape is perfect for you.
A-Line - An a-line silhouette is one of the most popular styles, and can positively impact anyone's shape.
Sheath - A Sheath style gown is ideal for petite and slender body types. It can also make a small frame appear taller.
Mermaid/Trumpet - This style can be used on many different body shapes. You can use simplistic versions to accent petite frames, and rounder accents to draw attention to hour glass figures.
NecklineScoop Neck - This neckline has a deep U shape, and can be flattering on many different shapes.
V-Neck - If you are small chested, a v-neck will help accent your shape. It can also be a very elegant style if you are large chested as well.
Sweetheart - This neckline is another wonderful option for large chested girls.
Illusion - Illusion necklines are a stylish and unique way to incorporate specific necklines, while also still keeping covered, or not sacrificing support.
Bateau - This is a unique neckline that is high and wide. It has the elegance of an off the should style, but it also comes up to the collar bone or higher.
Square - This can be a beautiful style if you have a round face. It will perfectly accent your face, and be a unique neckline.
Straight Across - You will see this neckline most commonly in strapless dresses. It can be a favored option if you have wide shoulders, but can be a stylish option for almost anyone.
Queen Anne - This regal cut is a unique option that we believe will pick up in popularity. It has a high collar in the back and a dipped neckline, most likely scoop or v-neck.
SleevesStrapless - This style picked up in popularity in the late 90's and it is still going strong because it looks good on generally every body style.
Long - Long sleeves can be a beautiful option when you are marrying in a climate that may be colder or if you get married in the winter months. They are flattering on all body shapes, and can also cover your arms if you aren't comfortable showing them off.
Short - While short sleeves aren't a popular option for many brides, they are a unique option that deserves some recognition. Especially when done in a lace or flowing option, they can be very elegant.
Off the Shoulder - This style is a classic option, with the sleeves reaching off the shoulder.
Spaghetti Strap - Spaghetti strap was especially popular in the 90's, but it has been re-imagined, with many beautiful styles and textures.
Sleeveless - Like the strapless, this style doesn't have a sleeve, but it does have straps. They could be wide straps or thin straps, all depending on your personal style.
Three Quarter Sleeve - This style has been featured on many bridal gowns, and we think it would be flattering for many different shapes and sizes. It would be an elegant fashion statement in the spring, especially when done in lace.
LengthKnee Length - This style is a classic style for a bride who doesn't want to fit the typical trends. It can also be a style that you use for your reception dress.
Tea Length - Tea Length dresses have a vintage feel to them, and are elegant and fine. They are ideal on petite frames, as well as taller body types.
Floor Length - Floor length is one of the most popular styles that you will in a wedding. The timeless beauty that it exudes makes it a perfect option for any body style.
