Wedding Dresses at Fairytale Brides

Probably THE most exciting moment of wedding preparation for any bride is trying on her perfect wedding dress.  That moment of walking from the dressing room to centre stage for all of your bridesmaids, family or friends to gaze adoringly at you for the first time.  So how do you find the perfect wedding dress which creates that very first ‘wow’ moment?

At Fairytale Brides we pride ourselves on our service and love to help women of all shaped and sizes find their dream wedding dress. First and foremost a bride needs to consider her body shape.  Not all wedding dresses are designed for all body shapes. By identifying your shape it will allow you to find what really works and narrow down the search, thus saving you time and more importantly the idea that nothing will fit right. For hourglass shapes, look for wedding dresses that accentuate your best features, mainly waistline.  Balance is incredibly important for hourglasses and good structure goes a long way in flattering beautiful curves. For woman with a more triangular shape (wider on top with narrow hips) select styles which draw attention from the neckline down, styles such as V-neck work well. Wider shoulder detail, especially in lace and silk balance out a triangle shape perfectly. Apple shapes are easily flattered with an empire line wedding dress, which draws direct attention away from the waist and focusing on elongating a brides silhouette. Pear shapes can be transformed with a well designed princess dress which highlights your best features whilst maintaining a great outline.

Choosing your perfect Wedding dress style

Once you have chosen a style, it’s time to think about budget. No matter what style you choose, you can find something within your budget.  Set yourself a realistic price but don’t be put off by the price of a favourite designers as discounts can be found, especially on previous collections.
It’s also useful to keep in mind when and where you are getting married.  For summer brides and those traveling abroad, you may want to consider the types of fabrics used in wedding dresses and how many layers have been used. Being comfortable on your big day is key to achieving the flawless bridal look although wherever, or when, you are getting married you still need to ensure that you have the dress of your dreams and have not compromised on this as far as possible. Equally if you have chosen to have a winter wedding you may wish to accessorise a dress with a balero or shrug.
Finally it is important to remember that this is your big day and you should chose a wedding dress that reflects your personality. Whether it’s a demure, understated style you want or the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood; your wedding dress should make you feel like it was made for you.  Why not give Fairytale Brides a call and arrange a consultation today?
