For some, the most beautiful time of the year is winter, so choosing a wedding date during the winter months is the best time. Shopping for wedding dresses can often be one of the most stressful aspects of wedding planning, but with more and more companies offering plus-size options, searching for a wedding dress is easier than it ever was. Finding the perfect wedding dress means something that complements your body and gives you the overall look you want on your special day. Since no bride should be stuck with a dress she is less than satisfied with, there are plenty of options to look for when shopping for that perfect dress.
When shopping, you will come across a few styles. One of the most flattering silhouettes is an A-line gown because it accentuates the hips, but widens as it moves down to balance out a wider bust or hips. Since it will be a winter wedding, you can cover up and stay warm with an elegant jacket or cape with faux fur lining. Beautiful faux fur accents will go perfectly with a winter wedding and offer you the warmth you need during the winter months. Check with a size chart when trying on dresses to make sure they have a variation of sizes, just in case your measurements vary from brand to brand.
Lace sleeves are a beautiful way to complement your body and stay appropriate for a winter wedding. While lace sleeves might seem a bit dated, there is no denying them coming back into style after Catherine Middleton wore sleeves with her gown during the wedding of the century to Prince William. Accented bodices accentuate the waist line and added details, such as buttons up the backside of the dress or lace appliqué create a beautiful dress.
Finally, if it is warm during your winter wedding, a strapless option is always available, and jackets or faux fur coats add a touch of elegance when you head to the reception. There are so many dresses to try, look for styles that accentuate parts of your body that you want to highlight, such as a beautiful collarbone, waist or arms. Try on at least ten gowns to get an idea of what you like, and what you don’t. Understanding what fits and complements your body will ensure you find a fabulous dress to show off on your special day.
