It is difficult enough to know how to dress for your body shape on the best of days, but when it comes to your wedding day it is especially important as all eyes will be on you. There are lots of dresses to choose from, and to give you a helping hand here is a breakdown of some of the most common body shapes and what style dresses go best with each. 

If you are petite then keeping your dress uncomplicated and simple is the recommended thing to do. This is because a dress that has extensive detail can often swallow you up and make it look like the dress is wearing you, rather than you wearing the dress.

If you have a fuller figure and were blessed with some extra curves than most, a ball gown would be a desirable option as it will flatter your best assets. However, avoid a slim sheath dress as they run the risk of making you look bigger than you are. 

If you are small on the top and heavy on the bottom, in other words, pear-shaped, then an empire styled gown would look best. For those of you who are unaware, an empire gown is one that has a high waistline. 

Finally, the last body type I am going to mention is short-waisted. Just like those of you with a fuller figure – stay away from sheath dresses as these will only show your short waist more prominently. Try an A-line dress as this cuts away close to the hips and will be extremely flattering. 

On a final note, it is important to remember to get your dress dry cleaned after your wedding day, you will want to look back on the stunning dress you bought to fit your figure for years to come!

We will sit and reminisce about one of the greatest days of our life, wishing we could go back to that magical moment, wishing we could feel how we felt in that stunning gown when we said the words “I do”. Quite often the most tangible thing we have remaining that can take us back to that stunning day is our wedding dress. 

But what happens when we open the box to look at our stunning gown and find that it is dirty, stained or creased? Your memories become as tainted as the dress is. This is why it is essential to make sure you have your dress dry cleaned by professionals after your wedding day. Professionals have expert knowledge and are fully equipped to deal with your needs; no matter the material or complexity or intricate nature of your gown.

Cleaning of your wedding dress; take advantage of expert knowledge

Let’s face it; for most women, the most exciting aspect of getting married is finding the perfect wedding dress. All eyes are assured to be on you so you need to make sure you look absolutely flawless. 

Once you have found your dream dress it is unfortunately not as simple as just putting it in your wardrobe and forgetting about it until the big day.

Professionals also possess a wealth of knowledge so they will know the best way to clean your dress. 

Pass on precious moments

For most women, if not all of us, the most significant and special moment in our lives is the day when we get married, and for those of you that are not yet married then lucky you; you still have this to look forward to. 

Our wedding day is the most magical and special moment in our existence and a lot of women like to pass the sensational aspects of their day on to their loved ones. One way of doing this is by passing your wedding gown down to your daughter or any other special lady in your family. Passing a wedding dress down through the generations is something extremely special and touching and there is nothing more spectacular than seeing your daughter walk down the aisle in the same dress you wore many years ago. Even if your daughter does not get married or does not wear the dress on her big day you will still feel an extensive amount of satisfaction in just knowing that your significant gown is in your precious girl’s hands.
