Which Gown Is Right For Your Body Type?

Every bride deserves to look and feel stunning on her wedding day. The right wedding gown should highlight your natural beauty by perfectly complementing your body's best features. If you're wondering which dress style will be right for you, our bridal gown consultant in Palm Beach is here to help you with your search.


What's Your Body Type?

Women's bodies are beautifully diverse. Realistically, it is impossible to lump all of body types into a few simple categories. Since it would be equally impossible to discuss all of these body types in a single post, however, we are going to focus on four general shapes for the purpose of today's blog: hourglass, petite, plus size, and lean. Keep reading to learn what styles of dresses may best fit each of these body types.


Hourglass
Perhaps the most classically feminine figure, the hourglass body type is characterized by balanced hips and bust, offset by a narrow, well-defined waist. If you have an hourglass figure, form-fitting gowns that hug and accentuate your curves will likely be your best friend. We recommend you begin your search with ballgown, fit and flare, mermaid, or A-line silhouettes.


Petite
If you consider yourself petite, we recommend that you steer clear big, extravagant ball gowns so as to not overwhelm your small frame. You may also want to avoid belts and other horizontal lines, as they could make you seem shorter. Sheath dresses with simple accents typically work well for petite women. If you want a little extra flair, you could also consider a mermaid silhouette.


Plus Size
If you fall in the plus size category, you will get to choose whether you want a gown that accentuates or minimizes your curves. Sweetheart necklines are often extremely flattering on women with this body type. A-line silhouettes that accent your narrowest point or mermaid silhouettes that hug your curves may also be good options. If you would prefer to minimize your curves, a ballgown silhouette may be more forgiving.


Lean
This body shape is sometime referred to as "straight" or "rectangle." Women with this body type generally find that their hips, waist, and bust are relatively equal in size. You can accentuate your body's best features by opting for gowns with eye-catching necklines, such as a V-neck, off-the-shoulder, or halter. Fit and flare or ballgown silhouettes can also be used to create additional lines.

What To Bring To Your Wedding Dress Appointment

The first dress shopping appointment is one of the most exciting moments in a bride's life. It is often the time that really brings the engagement to life - the time that the dream of getting married finally starts to feel real. At Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches, we recognize what a momentous event your bridal appointment is, and we strive to do everything we can to ensure that your experience is everything you hoped it would be. This week, we're here to help you prepare for your day by offering this quick list of things you should bring to your appointment. 


Pictures Of Gowns You Like
A picture is worth a thousand words. Our bridal gown consultant in Palm Beach FL is here to help you find the dress that perfectly matches your vision for your wedding, but we need your help to do it. Browse photos of wedding dresses prior to your appointment, and bring your favorites in to show us. We can help you find the gowns that will match the style you like.

Hair Ties/Clips
As you try on multiple dresses, your consultant will clip each one to match your dimensions. This process will be much easier if your long locks aren't in the way, so we recommend bringing hair clips or ties to pull your hair up into a bun as you try on each dress. You can always take your hair out to see what the dress looks like with your hair down once the dress is on.

Proper Undergarments
Wedding gowns are often complex garments with multiple layers of fabric and accents. Our bridal consultant will assist you in putting on each dress, so you'll want to wear modest undergarments you will feel comfortable wearing in front of her. The undergarments you choose should be similar to the ones you plan to wear on your actual wedding day, as they can affect the way your dress fits. We recommend wearing nude bikini panties or boy shorts and a nude strapless bra. You may not need your bra when wearing certain dresses, however; many wedding gowns have support already built in to the bust area.

The Right Shoes
Like undergarments, shoes can drastically impact the way a wedding gown fits. If you don't have your exact wedding shoes picked out yet, wear heels that are comparable to the height you plan on wearing at your wedding. The heel height will affect the length of the gown and the way it lays.

People You Trust
Your wedding dress shopping entourage will be a valuable sounding board for you as you try on different dresses. Ideally, your entourage should consist of a few people (typically not more than four or five) whose opinions you trust. We recommend bringing the same people to each appointment so that their tastes can evolve along with yours. See our earlier blog post for help picking the people to include in your wedding dress shopping entourage.

An Open Mind
This may not be a tangible item, but it is arguably the most important thing to bring to your dress shopping appointment. We have seen it time and time again - a bride comes in for her appointment with her heart set on a specific type of dress, and then she is disappointed when it doesn't fit exactly how she had envisioned. Your original plan may not work out quite the way you imagine it, but a dress of a different style may absolutely take your breath away. By keeping your mind open to all possibilities, you will be able to find your dream dress much more easily.

Call (561) 793-4633 To Schedule Your Bridal Appointment
Our bridal salon in South Florida is here to help you find your dream wedding dress. Fittings are available by appointment only, ensuring that each of our brides gets the personalized attention she needs to make her bridal appointment a success.

5 Secrets To Finding The Perfect Wedding Dress

Your wedding will be one of the most special events of your life. It is the start of an entirely new chapter, the celebration of two lives becoming one. Planning a wedding is incredibly exciting, but perhaps no aspect of wedding planning is as thrilling as choosing the dress. As the best bridal boutique in South Florida, we take great pride in helping our brides find the perfect dresses to wear while they say "I do."


What Constitutes A "Perfect" Wedding Dress?

We cannot say what style, color, or fit constitutes the perfect wedding dress, as every bride has a different image of her dream dress. While it will be up to you to decide what your ideal dress looks like, we can say this about all dream wedding gowns:
  • It will perfectly match your unique personality and flair.
  • It will effortlessly blend in with the overall style and theme of your wedding.
  • It will make you feel more beautiful than you ever have before.

Finding Your Dream Wedding Dress

Whether you are planning an elegant formal affair or a whimsical fairy tale, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches is here to help you find your perfect dress. Here are a few secrets to help you find your dream wedding dress.

1. Give Yourself Plenty Of Time.
By giving yourself plenty of time, you can relax and take time to enjoy trying on countless different dresses as you search for the perfect one. We recommend beginning the search for your wedding dress at least nine months in advance. This will give allow time for you to find the perfect one, for the dress to be delivered, and for you to schedule any needed alterations.

2. Consider The Current Trends - To A Point.
Browsing catalogs to see the current wedding dress trends is a great place to start. However, the trends should serve as a general guide rather than hard-and-fast rules. If you think you look great in a modern dress that is all the rage, wonderful. If you think you look better in last year's style, however, don't be afraid to choose that one. When you look back on your wedding pictures years from now, you'll want to know that you picked the one you liked the best.

3. Look At The Dresses You Already Own.
The perfect wedding dress shouldn't feel like a costume - it should feel like a natural extension of your personality. Before beginning the hunt for your dream dress, peruse your closet. While your wedding dress won't look exactly like the dresses you already own, the items in your closet will offer clues as to the style of dress that will fit you best. If all of your current dresses have a mermaid or A-line silhouette, for example, you probably won't want a ballgown or sheath wedding dress.

4. Flatter Your Body Type.
Women's bodies come in all different shape and sizes, each with its own unique, beautiful appeal. As you begin shopping for wedding dresses in South Florida, you'll want to look for dresses that will complement your best features. Take the time to consider how each detail of the dress will accent your body, from the neckline to embellishments.

5. Allow Yourself To Be Comfortable.
You will have enough to pay attention to on your big day - your gown shouldn't be pulling your focus unnecessarily. If you keep fidgeting with a dress because the lace detail is itching against your skin, or if you keep tugging at the neckline because you are worried about a wardrobe malfunction, put the dress back and keep looking. The right dress shouldn't be distracting or uncomfortable.

Different Wedding Colors Bring About Different Feelings

Some people know exactly what colors they want to use for their wedding the moment they get engaged, others have a little more trouble deciding. Browsing the rainbow of colors among our beautiful South Florida bridesmaid dresses may help with that choice. 

Today, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has also pulled together some of the feelings that are often associated with different colors. This information may be exactly what you need to push you toward a color decision. 


Red
This bold shade is the color of fire, and it brings about thoughts of love, passion, desire, strength, and power. It is also associated with energy, so if you are planning a wedding with lots of activity, this could be a good one to choose. Darker shades can bring about a more passionate feeling, while lighter shades, like pink, can evoke feelings of a sweeter, romantic nature. 

Yellow
Bright like a warm, summer day, the color yellow is often associated with joy, intellect, and energy. It seems to bring about happiness in a room, and it's a great attention-getter, so it makes a wonderful accent color. If you are going for a more subtle, romantic feel, you may want to use a light shade with white, but it really stands out when used with darker colors. 

Blue
Symbolizing trust, loyalty, wisdom, faith, and truth, blue is often associated with outdoor things like a clear sky or a beautiful body of water. It is a very calming and tranquil shade, and can be used easily in any season. Fresh in the warmer months, and offering a lovely chill when it's cold outside.  

Orange
Orange combines the fire of red lightened slightly by the happy shade of yellow. It's excellent for a wedding with a tropical feel. The color represents attraction, fascination, creativity, and happiness. A reddish-orange can be a very passionate combination, while a lighter, peach color is more subtle and sweeter. 

Purple
Often associated with royalty, dark purple is a shade fit for a king & queen. It embodies blue's stability with red's energy. This color is also linked with luxury and extravagance. If you choose to go with a lighter lavender, the color may appear more ethereal and magical. It makes a lovely statement, whether worn in dark or pastel.  

Green
Even more than blue, green makes a person think of nature. Fresh green grass, trees full of leaves, and the healthy growth of all things outdoors. It has been said to suggest stability and endurance, both wonderful traits to associate with a wedding. 

White
White, or a shade of white, is generally left to the bride and her beautiful wedding dress. A mostly white wedding can be very crisp and clean, especially for a winter reception, and it can take on the traits of any accent colors used with it. 

Black
A very elegant color, extremely formal weddings generally have lots of black included in the fashion and even decor. Just as with white, the accent color that you choose to use along with black can change its effect dramatically. 


Many other factors figure into the color that you will choose for your wedding, but if you have been unsure of which to use, hopefully the traits above will help with your inspiration for a final choice. As for your wedding fashion, the gorgeous bridesmaid dresses in our Palm Beach bridal boutique are available in a multitude of colors; solids, florals, and patterns. 

The style of each gown will work with the color that you choose to bring the look and feeling you are desiring for your wedding celebration. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches would love to help you find exactly what you are looking for. Make an appointment soon and come in to take a look.

The Perfect Bridal Gowns For 5 Popular Wedding Themes

Sometimes, a bride comes into our South Florida bridal salon with a theme for her wedding already in mind, and other times it's the style of the wedding dress that she falls in love with that ends up setting the theme. Some gowns simply exude a special aura that takes your thoughts to a particular place. It can be different for every person, but here are a few that Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches believes would work wonderfully for these types of weddings.  

Fairy Tale
More often than not, a bride with a love of all things romantic which begin with "Once upon a time..." and always end with "...happily ever after!" will desire a ball gown. This wedding dress looks as if a fairy godmother created it with a wave of her magic wand. The layers of organza in the skirt will make a lovely bride look as if she is floating down the aisle. 



Rustic
A classically romantic sweetheart neckline and luxurious lace make up an excellent dress to wear in a country-themed wedding. Fancy cowboy boots peeking out from below the gorgeous wide scalloped hemline are a perfect contrast, much like the rough burlap and elegant lace used for decor at a lot of rustic weddings. The ivory/champagne coloring of this particular wedding dress will look incredible with the natural wood elements often present with this theme too. 



Vintage
Reminiscent of days gone by and eras that seem fascinating to modern-day brides, a vintage look is dreamy and charming. The bold patterns of the delicate lace on this gown resemble the beauty often seen in simpler times. It's a timeless look that could have easily been worn by your great-grandmother, but with enough exquisite details to pull it fashionably into today.




Boho Chic
Free-spirited brides love to lean toward a more casual look, but personified in an elegant way. It could be a great style for a beach wedding, or one set in a rich forest with nature as the decor. This two-piece bridal gown is perfect for an adventurous bride that loves to have the freedom of movement. A bohemian inspired wedding is sure to have a group of people that all feel the love and friendship exuding from the celebration.

  
   
Winter Wonderland
Winter is a wonderful season that seems to have a magical quality about it when the ground is covered in a blanket of snow. The flakes sparkle like glitter, just like the crystal beading on this magnificent ball gown. The decor could be filled with twinkle lights and crisp, white linens with metallic accents, and you will appear as the princess of this enchanting winter wonderland. 





Get Inspired!
Fashion is subject to opinion, so the wedding dresses above may make you envision a different theme than we have given each of them. There is nothing wrong with that! Imagination is a wonderful thing. That is what brought these amazing designs to the creative minds of the designers in the first place. 

The way that you personally see each bridal gown in our wedding dress store in South Florida, plus the ways that you accessorize it, are what make it truly your own. There is a wide variety of exquisite styles of gowns at Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches, each waiting to inspire your wedding planning imagination.
