 How To Find Your Perfect Wedding Dress For Your Fall Wedding

If you have a fall wedding, you have probably looked at a hundred dresses by now.  With the fall wedding season around the corner, Colorado Party Rentals provides everything you need for an autumn wedding.  Today, we give you tips on finding the perfect dress for your body type.  First, figure out which body type best represents you.  Then, use our guide to find the style that accentuates your best features.

Body Types

When one thinks of body types, one usually considers what they are not.  The difficult aspect of fitting into a particular body type is that most women do not fit into one category.  You can transcend several categories.  Knowing this will make it easier to pinpoint a category to help discern which styles best compliment your body.  The different body types are petite, busty, plus size, hourglass, or lean and straight.

Petite

Petite brides should avoid overwhelming their small frame.  Choose airy sheath dresses or gowns with a more structured tailored style over large poofy ball gowns.  Think simple, simple lines, and vertical detailing rather than horizontal detailing.  Empire waists are also very flattering on petite frames, as the high waist creates the illusion of long legs.

Busty Body

If you are wanting to conceal rather than reveal, opt for a square neckline.  If you love the look of the sweetheart necklines, try one with straps and a full skirt to balance your top half.  If you try on dresses and find that the majority are just not covering appropriately, try a ‘modesty’ lace detailing panel that will keep your cleavage suitably covered.

Plus Size

Asymmetrical pleating and necklines make gowns appear more slimming, particularly with details that draw the eye inward minimizing the waist.  Lace illusion necklines paired with cummerbund style waists is demure while keeping a very classic and elegant look.  If you would like to avoid a strapless bra, try a scoop neckline which will show off your voluptuous shape while still providing support.

Hourglass

Show off your mid section in gowns that accentuate your waist by glitzy belts or any kind of detailing at the waist.  The ever popular mermaid dress is a great fit for your body, exaggerated dropped waist and oversized tulle skirt will draw all eyes to your feminine shape.  Otherwise known as fit and flare, these dresses will be your best friend.

Lean and Straight

If you would like to add curves, opt for a gown with a fuller skirt which will add volume to your frame.  If you would like to accentuate your tall slender body, go with a sheath dress.  The perfect gown for your body type is one with a high neckline paired with a full, A-line skirt which balances your height while showing it off at the same time.
