Hey guys,

Here is a special guest post on choosing the right wedding dress style for your body shape written by one of our fabulous friends, Michelle, the author of the 'Once Upon a Time There Was A Wedding' blog and wedding planner.

Earlier in this blog, we highlighted the different wedding dress silhouettes. Today, however, Michelle will be sharing with you guys simple tips on choosing the perfect wedding dress for your body shape.......



Each woman has a different body shape, and essential to figure out which shape you are and adjust your wardrobe to flatter your shape. When it comes to your wedding day, you want to look your best, and to look your best, you must pick a dress that accentuates the best features of you!
Here are the most common shapes women have, and which dresses will flatter the shapes the most.

 This is the most common shape women have. It is characterised by the widest part of your body being your hips. Anyone can have this shape, whether you are a tall woman or a bit curvaceous! In order to find your perfect dress, you need to find a dress that elongates your body while balancing your hips and shoulders. An A-line dress with a V-neckline is the dress for you!

Apple-shaped woman are known to have broad shoulders and narrow hips. The perfect wedding dress for you is an A-line dress that cinches in the smallest point of your waistline, then flares out. It should also have a deep V-neckline! Definitely avoid those mermaid styles and stick with those A-line dresses!
