By the time you're ready to start wedding dress shopping, you’ve probably amassed a pretty nice-sized wish list about your dream weddingg gown. Most bridal shops will only let you book an hour-long appointment. And, while one hour is plenty of time to try on wedding dresses, if you can narrow down your options before stepping foot in the dressing room, you're in for a much more pleasant, laid-back shopping experience.
One easy way to limit your options is to choose a silhouette that will highlight your best-loved assets and conceal your less-favorable traits. To start, figure out which of our five featured body types best defines your figure: Petite, plus size, busty, hourglass or lean and straight. And remember, you may not fit squarely into one category — most people don’t! Some girl's petite, busty and has (insane) hourglass curves. And, her wedding dress with its sheath silhouette, modest neckline and waist-baring cut-outs, was the perfect complement to her shape.
Along with finding the right wedding dress for your body type, there are a few other things that can help make your perfect wedding dress shopping experience as easy as possible. First, trust your consultant and don't be afraid to try on bridal gowns he or she suggests that fall outside of your traditional comfort zone. Also shop with a supportive crew! And finally, do your makeup and hair. It will be much easier to imagine wearing one of these perfect wedding gowns on your wedding day if you don't look like you just rolled out of bed.
