Looking for the perfect wedding dress for your big day can be frustrating, but should be an enjoyable experience! Being familiar with which style dress will compliment your body type will be helpful to know before you begin shopping.
Ball Gown Dresses are tighter on the upper body and full, bell shaped at the bottom. This style specifically compliments brides who are full figured or have broader hips, but flatters every body style.
Empire Style Dresses are distinguished by their higher waistline. The waistline begins higher than a bride’s natural waistline, usually fitted under the bust line, then falls softly down the body. This style flatters petite brides by distracting from the natural waistline and adding length to the body.
Heart Shaped and Straight Necklines help compliment the bride’s upper body. Women with a fuller chest should wear a dress with a straight neckline, while those with a smaller chest should find a dress with a dip in the neckline.
A-line Dresses are universally flattering. This style, similar to a ball gown, is fitted on the upper body then gradually flows out.
Mermaid Dresses have become increasingly popular. This style is form fitting all the way down to the knees then flares out. This style is recommended for petite women and those who want to show their hourglass figure.
If trying on dress after dress becomes too overwhelming, try looking online for some inspiration!
1. Your Hair and Makeup:
It’s your big day! All eyes are on you and it’s important to look your best! Take the time to prepare your hair and makeup style before the big day so there’s no stress when the time comes!
2. The Music:
The band or DJ will be the entertainment for your guests. Without proper music selection, the whole ambiance of your wedding can be ruined. Selecting the proper band or DJ and planning the right music style before the event will prevent this from happening.
3. The Venue:
Booking the location of your wedding and reception is one of the most important factors while planning your wedding. The location sets the mood for the entire wedding. With the help of a coordinator, the bride and groom can easily book the perfect destination!
4. The Food:
Weddings are an entire day affair. Guests will be hungry so planning the perfect meal, along with hors d’oeuvre and cocktails, will be an important necessity.

Having the wedding of your dreams is something you will always want to be reminded of! Finding the perfect photographer and videographer is essential to capture this special moment. These pictures will be with you for the rest of your life. To make sure nothing goes wrong, find someone you can trust and preview their portfolio before your event.
