On your unique day, a majority of the photos will be taken from the waist up, making the neckline of your bridal dress the star of the show. A strapless, corset bodice is the most popular because it is so versatile. If you have a fuller bust, a simple bodice with a structured off-the-shoulder neckline is a good place to start. If you have a smaller bust, you can look for an embellished bodice or a sweetheart neckline to give it more emphasis. Also, a square or scoop neckline looks great on everyone.
Since love stories span the ages, we simply adore dreaming up vintage-inspired gowns that align with particular eras. Our 1920s wedding dresses feature intricate beading, fringe, shorter lengths and the vibrant vibe indicative of the flapper era. You’ll also find tea-length dresses and other styles decked out with filmy, floaty overlays that add an angelic aura to the look.
If you’re a fan of clean lines, modest dresses will give you a chic minimalist style that you’ll love. The straight cut adds even more length to your figure. If you’re looking to highlight your hips, there are two fabulous cuts you should try: the trumpet style, which is fitted below the knee, and drop waist style dresses, which shows off your waist and hip area.
