Wedding Dress Styles–Choose the Right One

Choosing an ideal wedding dress is probably one of the most time consuming things for a bride to do. There are so many styles to choose from that it can be quite overwhelming. When you break it all down, there are basically 6 choices: A-Line, Ball Gown, Empire, Halter, Mermaid and Tea Length.
A-Line Wedding Dress
This is a great dress that is suitable for most body types. The way the dress is made gives the impression of height and is good for the bride who wishes to look taller. The cut also helps to make the bride look slimmer which is a bonus. The style means that there is a full skirt and the whole dress is very versatile. It accentuates the best bits of your body and hides the others!

Ball Gown Wedding Dress
This style of dress is good for the slimmer bride and also for those who do not wish to show off the leg area too much. The way the dress fans out at the bottom does not show off the legs at all but the centre of focus if at the upper half of the body. This style is also probably not best suited to shorter women as it can look proportionally unequal.

Empire Wedding Dress
This is a very good dress again for most body types but especially good for those women with a smaller bust or those with a larger bust. This is because the dress brings the focus of attention to around the neckline. With some jewellery here, the effect is increased and the neckline becomes the centre of attention.

Halter Wedding Dress

This style comes up into a strap the ties or fastens around the neck, and your back is out.  One body type that the halter style flatters is the large bust or prominent busted body shape. The halter straps cut in the bodice with a V- neckline is the best shape for large busted shapes, followed by the sweetheart neckline. On the other hand, if you are small busted the best style choice would be the halter style that is closed in up to the neck.

Mermaid Wedding Dress
This style of dress is best suited to the slender bride as it does show off the figure and does not look flattering for those who do not enjoy their body curves. There are a range of styles to choose form and you can see if there is one for you.

Tea Length Wedding Dress

This kind of dress can be worn for many different occasions, but if you comes to weddings, the tea length is especially perfect for outdoor weddings, garden weddings, beach weddings, destination weddings and mountain weddings. Tea length dresses tend to be less ornate and appeal to a more mature bride. The length is great for showing off shoes, works well with more elegant, sharp heels due to its feminine, floaty nature.

Just remember that once you have decided upon your dress, you need to invest in the proper dress storage box otherwise you are risk ruining your investment in many years time through fabric degradation.
