Wedding Dress Styles: Which Ones Are Best for You?

When you become a bride-to-be and the wedding preparations begin, a whole new world opens up. As part of that there is a new language, that of the wedding dress. It may seem like fashion jargon, but each style of dress has its own name and distinguishing features.

More importantly, picking the right style of dress for your own body shape and features can make an enormous difference to your looks. 

Each style has the power to both enhance and tone down curves and enhance flatter parts!

You’ll see that for each body shape, most of us will find a few different dress style options that suit.  Take a look at our Ultimate Guide to Finding Your Perfect Wedding Dress to find the best styles based on your body shape.

Each dress style can be spun by a dress designer in so many ways.  Think different fabrics, necklines, embellishments and colours. 

Once you find the best styles for you, you will still find plenty of choice and can focus on finding the look that will make you feel simply perfect on your wedding day.
