You are getting married! It is every little girl’s dream to have the perfect wedding with the perfect dress. When a little girl dreams of her wedding, the dress is, by far, the most important part (aside from the groom of course!). However, when you get into the wedding dress store, it can be very overwhelming. You have people coming at you from every direction with a different dress to try on. You are assaulted with haters, strapless, spaghetti straps; A line, empire waist, and mermaid. There are a thousand different styles and designs for dresses, let alone wedding dresses.
Fit Your Figure
Your wedding dress needs to be appropriate for your figure. You may have a large chest, and while you may love strapless gowns, that might not be the best choice for you. Instead, try to find something with some support like a halter dress or a dress with cap sleeves.
In addition, while some large, poufy, princess gowns look great on store mannequins, it takes a certain body type to effectively pull the dress off. If you have a short waist or are not very tall in general, chances are that this type of dress will completely engulf you and make you look absolutely ridiculous.
So even if you absolutely love a dress on the hanger or the store mannequin, remember that you have to find a dress that fits your figure, not a size zero mannequins.
