After picking out a gorgeous dress (careful you don’t upstage the bride – unless you are the bride!) and some equally stunning footwear, you’ll be looking at how to accessorize in a stylish way to tie the ensemble together.  This is often the hardest part.

Shapes and Sizes Perfect Wedding Dress

Figure it out

Searching for the perfect dress? First define your shape

Every bride wants to look fabulous on her wedding day and the best way to see what is right for you is to make appointments at bridal shops and try on a variety of dresses you like. Keep an open mind and take the advice of the experts in the shop as they are well practised at knowing what suits brides of all shapes and sizes.

Strapless ballgowns also work well in this regard and empire line dresses highlight the smallest part of your body.
