A successful wedding party starts with choosing the right wedding gown that you will put on, on the big day.

Here are some tips to relay on when choosing the perfect wedding dress.

Consider Your Wedding Style
•Formal Weddings – a long white, ivory, champagne or cream worn with gloves and a train makes it a pure elegance.
•Semi-Formal Weddings – consider pastel that slightly brushes the floor and a short veil in exclusion of train.
•Casual Weddings - A long or short dress suited with two-piece of paired classic pillbox hat is the preferable option.

Flatter Your Shape
A-line dress is the best skirt of any silhouette you can prove this by trying shaped-A-line such as empire waist, ball gown, sheath and princess, to identify which flatters you most. Make sure that you select the gown that can make you comfortable when walking, turning, and sitting, bending as well as lifting your arms to hug your potential bridegroom. Comfort and confidence are very imperative on you wedding event since it will make you not to fall out and split a seam.
For short or petite figured brides you can choose a mermaid skirt if you are the type that love fitted dresses. Do not make the mistake of picking slim straight dresses as you may look awkward in them. If your option is hourglass shaped bride or pear-shaped then, it’s mandatory to balance the top half of your body with the bottom. A-line skirts and V-neckline or strapless can really boost your appearance. The perfect wedding gown will highlight the perfect side of your D-day while at the same time disguising and draw attention from your unpopular favorite parts.
Wedding gowns are also the trending headlines of fashion industry, so it’s critical to select the one that is classic and perfect for you. Selecting the latest wedding dress in the modern fashion market, may look modernized in your wedding pictures in several years to come.

Compliment Your Skin Color
Who said that you must wear white on your wedding? The color does matter but you should ensure that it complicate theme of your wedding, style and your body shape. Bold colors are only meant for people with fuller figure. Today more couples especially he brides are going against the tradition and wearing bright and colorful dresses.
Only selected few brides goes for the pure white wedding dress, this applies only to brides who have the correct skin color. But if you not have the colors don’t make the mistake since it will make you look miserable and be a disaster. Apart from white cream or ivory are easier to put on for various skin tones. Nowadays more ladies prefer dramatic reds, pale golds, soft pinks or lilacs accompanied by black back on the runways of Britain. The most important is to choose the color that will make your skin look gorgeous.

Select The Fabric For The Season
Wedding gowns are designed in a variety of fabric using light materials such as chiffon, silk, crepe to satins and heavy brocades. One of the things which you should also put into consideration is the year which you are tying the knot. For instance, if you are getting engaged in summer or on a tropical island then heavy fabric won’t work well for you. On the other hand chiffon will not distance the shivers away in winter.
Beadwork is perfect in vogue and can translate a simple dress into a stunning bridal dress that will definitely raise the eyebrows. You can also decorate or add extra color in your outfit using embroidery details. This is very important since it will shift attention to specific areas of your body like the shoulder or neck section away from your hips. You should also experiment how wearable the fabric is as you will dancing, sitting and standing most of the time since you won’t love it if it appear creased in all of your pictures.

The Neckline For Your Body Shape
Generally the upper part of your body is exposed that’s why the neckline of your wedding fabric must just grab the attention. Depending on your feeling about it and your body shape, your shoulders, face, neck and bust can be ignored or downplayed by the upper section of your wedding gown and the shape of the neckline.
Another style of neckline include scooped or low round necks and square necklines fits most ladies, but do not raise the eye brows to any particular feature including diverting attention from your face. Heart-shaped or strapless square attires also suits most brides and are very common. They appear fabulous on shapely ladies.

Asymmetric neckline with unpattern shaping and single straps also flatters the body figure as they blind the eye away from problems areas such as voluminous hips and are gaining recognition in the line with modern fashion trends.
•Large Shoulders - halter necks look great on girls with large shoulders, but may make a bride with a large bust look disfigured.
•Large Busts - V-necks shifts concentration away from large busts as they lead the eye inwards and down the midline of the fabric dress.
•Small Busts - high round neck or slash-neck dresses look fabulous on ladies with small busts (it actually magnifies them look bigger) or brides that don't want to display much décolletage.
Train or No Train
The train is a situation where the material at the back of the dress overlaps outwards. It comes in different lengths and styles:

•Sweep / duster train - the easiest to handle as it extends at a maximum length of 50cm from the hem of the dress.
•Puddle train - is round in shape and it starts at the sides of the skirt, making it look as if the bride is standing in a 'puddle' of fabric and it is normally combined with a fishtail or column dress in a lighter fabric
•Chapel train – it’s normally one meter in length
•Cathedral train - usually an approximation of two or more meters in length
When purchasing your train it is critical to think ahead about how you will visualize it in future after your wedding day. Although it is the duty of your bridesmaid to organize the trains after you have walked down the aisle and for photographs. You should have in mind that it can make your day difficult to dance or to cope with if it’s longer and heavier.it can also easily get dirtier if not arranged properly.
A detachable train designed to the skirt near the waist that can be removed easily once the event and wedding photos are over, is the best solution.
Therefore, it is very important to get recommendations and visit the dress designers’ references. Most reputable dress designers will be happy to show you examples of their work and connect you with brides they have crafted wedding gowns for in the past. At some point this can be very interesting if you find out the brides which you have been introduced to also started their life time dating, engagement and wedding plan on MillionaireMatch.
