Style for Down the Aisle - Wedding Compass

Dreaming about the perfect dress to wear down the aisle?

Every bride dreams of that perfect dress for her perfect day. Picking a dress that compliments your figure is the first step. Pear and apple shaped brides look best in A-line dresses with V necklines that accentuate the upper body. Stiff fabrics, such as taffeta, float gracefully over hips and thighs.

A scooped or sweetheart neckline is flattering to busty brides, displaying your assets without being too revealing. Avoid straight-across necklines which tend to make your bust look more like a shelf. Petite brides look best in trumpet and sheath styles.

Flowing empire gowns flatter the plus-size bride. Avoid pleats and ruffles and stay with fabrics that provide structure to your dress.

The perfect dress is out there, no matter your shape or size.
