So your significant other finally popped the question, and now the fun part starts – planning what to wear! Your wedding dress may well be the most important outfit you will ever wear, and you deserve to feel flawless and fabulous on your big day, whatever style you choose. You'll want to know the latest trends in wedding dresses, but also what style best suits your body type, so it's time to get your wedding dress inspo on and find the gown of your dreams.
What wedding dresses are in fashion?
It's a great idea to look at the latest wedding fashion magazines to get inspiration and ideas when trying to decide on your bridal gown, and every year brings new trends for us to drool over. This year the simple line is hotter than ever - think Pippa Middleton's figure hugging bridesmaid dress that garnered all the attention, as opposed than Kate Middleton's more traditional full skirt and train. One of the benefits of a simple line is that the details and embellishments take centre stage, whether it be delicate beading across the bodice, sheer panels and stylish tailoring, or even full on sequins. The truth is, at the end of the day, your wedding dress is all about you. - trends may change, but choose a wedding dress which you love and you'll look back with fondness for years to come.
What wedding dress suits my shape?
Part of the trick of getting a wedding gown to make you feel stunning is to work with your figure and highlight your favourite features. Off-the-shoulder dresses are great for those with a small to medium bust, and if paired with a wide skirt they're the perfect choice for pear shapes! If you're fuller up top you might want to try a halter neck maxi dress or a classic v-neck design to draw the eye, and for curvy girls a fitted bodice with a flowing train skirt is a look which is guaranteed to turn heads. For older brides who want a little more coverage, a higher neckline in lace or sheer fabric is a stylish choice, while long sleeves can add a touch of extra glamour. Colour-wise, white is obviously the traditional choice, and for darker skinned girls a white bridal maxi will definitely pop! However, if you have pale skin you might end up looking a little washed out, so try ivory or champagne as softer but still stunning alternatives (either that, or top up your fake tan!) Finally, if you don't want the traditional white wedding, there's no need to follow the crowd - if a red wedding dress or a black full length gown will make you feel fabulous on your big day, then go for it!
