Wedding Dress Silhouettes

The best way to decide on your preferred style of wedding dress is to settle on the silhouette you want to wear. The word “silhouette” refers mainly to the skirt style (though some also use the word to include the style of the bodice; it depends on who you talk to), and the fullness or shape that you wish your skirt to have. If you need a little guidance in that area, here is a basic guide to your wedding dress silhouettes to get you started: Ball gown Think “Cinderella”. This is the most traditional silhouette, and it generally entails a big, poofy skirt with a real princess-y feel to it. These wedding dresses are the types that most little girls dream of wearing, and they flatter many body types, but especially those who are pear-shaped or especially slim. A-line An A-line gown is a popular style for those who love a full skirt but who do not want to go all the way to ball gown. They have a very classic, old Hollywood feel to them. Think Grace Kelly at her wedding, or Audrey Hepburn at the Oscars. The best part is that these types of gowns look stunning on everyone! Sheath A sheath dress, also known as “column”, is a sleek and body-hugging style gown. The top is fitted, while the skirt follows the natural curve of your body. These types of dresses tend to flatter the tallest and slimmest (since they tend to be clingy and sexy), but if you are short and thin these can add some height to you! Mermaid or trumpet A mermaid or trumpet gown refers to the type of skirt that is very fitted right up until the bottom, where it dramatically flairs out to create the shape that gives its name. This is also a nice choice for several body types – it can add curves to narrower women, and curvy Christina Hendricks types can also rejoice. It makes those curves sing! Empire An empire dress is the type with a high waistline and a straight, somewhat shapeless skirt. While that may sound boring, it is anything but – these dresses are soft, sweet, and very romantic. Think “Pride and Prejudice” with a modern twist, though some have a more Greco-Roman look to them. These dresses are also helpful for hiding any tummy insecurities and are popular choices for pregnant brides, though they flatter most body types.

Top Wedding Dress Code

Each journey begins with one step, and knowing what you want in your wedding dress, will make yours all the more joyful! Do you have your gown made, or buy one off the rack? There are different styles to try on, a range of fabrics to choose from and a huge variety of stores to visit, whether on the street or online. Plus, at the end of the day, not only does your gown have to fit you, it has to fit the not so fun-filled aspect of your wedding – the budget. With all this to consider, a little research before you get started will set you in good stead. Rack it up Buying off the rack can seem like a great idea if you’re running out of time, you’re short on cash, and you’re a standard ‘fit size’. It seems straightforward enough – if you like the garment and it fits, your work is done. But despite how easy it sounds, off-the-rack purchases require a lot of thought. You’ll need to bear in mind that if the fit isn’t seamless to begin with there won’t be much room for alteration. In addition, not all off-the-rack dresses are created equal. The low price of bulk-manufactured gowns is usually indicative of synthetic fabric and lower-quality finishings, so if the price seems too good to be true its seams are intact, the beadwork’s not loose and it’s not shop soiled. On the other hand, designer off-the-rack dresses are of much higher calibre, also reflected in the price. If you’re unsure what style you’re after, walking into a store stocked with hundreds of long white gowns can be intimidating. Pros advise phoning ahead to book some one-on-one time with a bridal consultant, and being open to donning a variety of styles. Trying a range of gowns gives you a better feel for design and proportion than a sketch can; you get a feel for what looks good on you. Some brides say they don’t like the look of a dress on the hanger then fall in love with it as soon as they try it on. Meet your maker Employing a dressmaker may be the best option if you know exactly what you want, or you’ve been inspired by a celebrity style. That’s how it happened for Aucklander Jackie Robinson. ‘While looking at frocks worn on the red carpet, I spotted the one. Since I didn’t require any design input, I looked for a dressmaker who was also a talented pattern maker’ she explains. Jackie’s dressmaker, Anita de la Cruz, says that the cost involved varies according to the work required. A good dressmaker will be adept at bringing even the most ambitious ideas to life. ‘In over 40 years of dressmaking I’ve never made the same dress twice,’ says Anita. ‘Each and every dress is made to measure. Initially I make the dress in calico, to allow the bride to make changes to the shape. The gown must fit like a […]

Wedding Dress Weight Loss

It’s getting harder and harder to compete with those great looking ladies on TV and the movies. We are always comparing ourselves with them.  This is just the result of a media driven life. What we really need to do is just look at ourselves and confront our bodies and our lives for what they are.  In doing this, we would easily find what we are doing great and what we need to improve in. The big wedding day plans should be confronted in the same way.  How perfect can you get and do we really have to have everything so perfect we rob ourselves of the joy we should feel on this great day? The same would be true for weight loss and, of course, we’re really talking about that dreaded wedding dress weight loss plan that we have to keep.  How much weight are you really planning to lose? And how are you planning to do this? How much time are you alloting yourself? You really need to answer these questions honestly before you attempt to start dieting and you should get candid advice from your physician. And, please, do not take it so seriously. The first thing is start early enough so you are not forcing your body to lose weight at a rate that is unrealistic. Everybody is different. Your weight loss may be slower than others but that certainly doesn’t mean that it isn’t working. Don’t give yourself unrealistic goals. When you find a diet plan, you should make sure it fits certain requirements.  Obviously, you don’t want to put yourself on a weight loss regimen that would be dangerous to your health.  Although, there are people daily that do this don’t for one minute believe that it will not have consequences. In our youth, we tend to believe we are invincible and we will not suffer the consequences for what we will do today. Don’t be one of those who will regret their actions later in life, take up a healthy lifestyle and start healthy eating habits that will ensure that your body will remain strong for your later years. What I suggest is a eating plan that will include lean meats, vegetables, whole grains and fruits.  One where you are not hungry and where the tendency to “pig out” will be avoided. Also, I suggest exercise that will not require a gym membership. The diet plan should fit in with your lifestyle and your food preferences. No more eating just meat for a month. No more diet pills or slimming teas or fasting. And the plan should allow you to lose 10 lbs in 14 days. How can any of this be possible? Weight lossto help you fit into that wedding dress is possible. And, not only that, it can be done in a healthy and responsible way.  Get the FACTS!  FIND OUT MORE!    I am a new author who is interested in helping people with weight loss

Bridesmaid wedding dresses

As a bride it is often assumed that your main decision is to do with the dress you are going to wear for your big day. Whilst your wedding dress is of course a massive decision and a big part of your big day, bridesmaid wedding dresses are also a big part of the decision. If you have lots of bridesmaids then you may have to even budget for the type of dress that you want because of the cost of buying multiple dresses. It really doesn’t matter what type of budget you have, there are bridesmaid wedding dresses to suit everyone. Some brides take some of the pressure off of themselves and let the bridesmaids choose their own dresses. This can be a great if you have a couple of bridesmaids and they are friends, so they can come to a decision together. However if you have bridesmaids that don’t know each other they ever need to try and compromise or you are going to have bridesmaids wedding dresses on your big day that don’t match. If you are choosing the dresses then there are lots of decisions to be made. The great thing is that there are hundreds of different dresses available so you can really find something that matches exactly what you want. You’ll need to decide on the style of dress that you want and then you can look at colour schemes. Once again this is a personal decision, some like to have all their bridesmaids in the same colour, where as others like them all in the same dress in different shades – You can decide this when you start to shop around for your dresses. One thing you need to be sure of, no matter what style you go for is that it doesn’t clash with your choice of dress. For this reason most brides like to choose their dress first and make sure they are 100% happy with it before they go ahead and order their bridesmaid wedding dresses. Whatever you decide, it is probably a wise choice to include your bridesmaids in the decision on the dress, after all it is going to be something they wear all day so you want to make sure it is something that are happy and comfortable with.
