It’s All About The Wedding Gown

For most brides the wedding dress is the most important element of her wedding planning.

With careful selection of style and fabrics to flatter your figure shape, your gown will be the center piece of the theme you want to create.

The question in your mind may be “what style will suit my shape?”

At Unforgettable Bridal our experienced consultants will work with your ideas to design the best style uniquely for you. For a made to measure consultation, please feel free to contact us for an appointment.

Some Ideas to Begin With…

For a slim figure choose a style such as a ball gown instead of a very straight design
If you have curves and you are not afraid to show them off, a mermaid style will look very sexy!
For full busts, a gorgeous V neck style disguises the size but take care with the cleavage!

Petite busts benefit from well fitted empire line dresses with frills or detail on the bust area to give an illusion of volume.

Problem tummy? Emphasise a nice cleavage to draw attention away from tummy. Choosing rouging detail to one side can also hide this area.

Pear shapes will look stunning in a simple A line cut which will hide any problem hip areas and bring the body into proportion.
