Wedding Dresses for Elegant Brides to Be
Your wedding day is going to be one of the most exciting and important days of your life. All of your friends and family will gather together to join in the celebration of your one true love.
But with all these big, important things going on, it is the little details of your wedding that make it truly special. From the place settings to the glimmer in the groom's eye; from the icing on the cake to the pounding of your heart; these are the things that make your wedding day shine.
And of course, one detail that no bride can go without is finding that perfect dress. Planning for you wedding can be a stressful experience, but searching for your dress should be a time that you treasure. Don't get frustrated if you have to sort through dozens of dresses before you find the right one. Enjoy the process and take your time. Here are a few ideas for fabulous wedding dresses to get your search off and running.
A Dash of Color
Traditionally a bride wears nothing but all white on her wedding day. Sure, some brides might mix it up and wear an "off-white," like ivory or champagne, but the essence is the same.
But why limit yourself to white only? Finally, today there are wedding gowns available that throw a little dash of color into the mix. This satin a-line gown with split front and color inset is a thrilling way to mix things up.
All along the edges, bodice and hem of this skirt, you can find detailed embroidery in over 20 different colors. This strip of color also runs down the split front, and around the waist and down the back on the matching sash. The rest of this dress comes in pure white but you can get the details in contrasting key lime, guava, jade, fern, apple, sangria and many more! Break out of the box with this colorful and one-of-a-kind dress.
Flattering Your Figure
Every bride wants to look her absolute best on her wedding day. Brides spend months going on diets and exercising so that they can dazzle their guests with their stunning physiques. But sometimes all of these elaborate measures are unnecessary. Sometimes you can simply find a dress that flatters all of your most beautiful curves.
The taffeta gown with beaded appliques and pick ups will take the breath away from anyone who gazes upon it. It has a strapless bodice to show off your neck and shoulders, and gathered taffeta to slim your silhouette.
But the most enticing part of this ensemble is the "fit and flare" style of the dress. This feature makes an impression by hugging your figure all the way down past your hips and then dramatically flaring out in all directions. It makes a gorgeous impression and will have you looking absolutely gorgeous.
And remember that going on a diet and starting to exercise during the months leading up to your wedding is fine, as long as you do it in a healthy way. Crash diets may work temporarily but they never last. Looking good on your wedding day is important, but staying healthy throughout your life is the real challenge. Let this gown do the hard work on your wedding day while you focus on living a health and active lifestyle.
Savvy in the Summer
Ah, to get married in the summertime. The birds are chirping. A warm breeze is blowing. The sun is shining down on you, your husband to be, and all of your closest family members and friends.
To truly appreciate this day, you need a wedding dress to match. This satin tea-length gown with box pleats is absolutely adorable when worn during an outside ceremony in the hot summer months.
The skirt hangs to between the knees and the ankles, giving your body room to breathe but without going too short. To help your body look its best, the designers have draped the bodice. They have even placed an enticing little brooch at the waist to add a dash of sparkle and excitement to the dress.
You can find this gown in options that include soft white, white or ivory. While wearing this dress, it is best to keep all your accessories simple and sweet. A headband and a necklace will round things out nicely, but don't go overboard with a tiara. The same thing goes with your shoes. High heels are fine, but there is no reason to buy shoes with elaborate beadwork or rhinestones. The essence of this dress is understated simplicity.
Shopping for a wedding dress should be a time you get to spend laughing and joking with your bridesmaids. Don't let the stress of finding the perfect dress get you down. Take your time, enjoy yourself, and the right wedding gown will turn up eventually.
