So today I am going to talk to the curvaceous Bride, bootylicious, big boned, bodacious girls.
You are engaged & excited then you start dress shopping….let the frustration begin. Every magazine you look at has little tiny girls, how do you get a vision of what a real girl will look like?? First you hit the big ones DB & AA (I’m not talking about Dooney & Burke or Alcoholics Anonymous). All you find are dresses that look like every other Bride but not the confident beautiful woman you are or you find the tent dress that hides all the curves. So now you head to a boutique where they have a limited number of dress in your size, breathe in & stretch….we have the right shape, give yourself a chance, open your mind, (have faith in your consultant, she has seen ALL the dresses on a body)…TRY on dresses.
Ditch the flaws, compliment your assets!
Your Honey loves your curves, he loves everything about you. Your wedding dress should compliment your assets, forget about your flaws. When we forget the flaws & highlight the assets…NO one will notice the rest, they will see what your Honey sees, a beautiful woman in love.
Remember that ruching is your friend, it will make your waist look tiny & your tummy disappear. Try on dresses that are outside your comfort zone, dresses that look like nothing on the Hanger may make your body look great. It’s all about THE shape.
So let’s talk about shapes.
A-line – This gown is going to compliment your bust & waist then float out at your hips. This shape is great for a curvy yet proportionate girl.
Ball – This gown is good for the Bride who wants to look like a Princess. The Bride who is pear shaped or the Bride who wants something more traditional.
Trumpet – This gown is fitted to the hip, Then flares out. This gown is for the Bride who doesn’t want to hide her curves, she feels confident & sexy…& it shows.
Straps or strapless…the designers have made that a little harder. Its hard to find a beautiful dress with straps, but fortunately we can customize so you can get the dress redesigned to meet your needs & your vision. The designers have heard that some Brides need jackets for their church or temple or maybe they just want a little more coverage (check out or new jackets by Enzoani).
Your Honey loves YOU…don’t stress! Come to our trunk show!
Remember ladies this is the best time of your life, now is not the time to crash diet. Your Honey loves YOU, so don’t stress yourself out trying to fit into a certain size. Wedding dresses are European sizing so it is totally different than ours. Once you have ordered your dress, ideally you want to stay the same or lose no more than ten to fifteen pounds otherwise your alterations cost will go up! You are going to look beautiful, because the wedding is about the commitment to each other & love makes us all beautiful.
