To offer you the inspiration that you need, we’re showcasing some special, fashionable wedding dresses that are as affordable as they are beautiful. To become the most beautiful bride you can be, choose the style you love the most, and then come and try it on at one of our Ontario wedding boutiques (find our bridal shops in Toronto, in Barrie, or in Mississauga). You may also order your favorite direct from our full-service online bridal store.
A Great Look for Curvy Ladies…
When it comes to choosing the right wedding gown for a curvy figure, it’s important to embrace your shape, instead of trying to hide it. The right bridal dresses (or plus size wedding dresses) will streamline your curves just a little bit, holding everything in place without being too tight or constricting. At the same time, this sort of fitted design will show off your opulent shape in all of its voluptuous glory.
The beautiful lace wedding gown shown above features an ultra-flattering halter neckline that will give you a Hollywood bombshell quality. In addition, the gown’s supportive bodice will create a pleasing silhouette, without revealing too much. This dress also nips in at the waist to flatter you better. Crafted from lovely lace and sparking embellishments, this type of gown offers glamour that is totally flattering to curvier girls.
To get the look, put your hair up and treat yourself to some dramatic drop earrings, and then paint your lips in a vibrant jewel tone. Ladies with curvier bodies often have wider faces, and brighter lipstick in a complementary shade will create the illusion of a leaner face. Any lip color, from rose-pink to magenta to ruby red, will give you a shot of elegance that will dazzle your wedding guests…and your groom-to-be.
The Perfect Gown for a Classic Hourglass Shape
Women with medium builds often fall into the hourglass category, and they need perfect wedding dresses that highlight the waist, while skimming over the hips. When a gown balances your curves correctly, you’ll make the most of your great natural proportions.
The sexy wedding dress featured above is tailor-made for your body type, and it has a shimmering belt that really emphasizes the beauty of your traditionally feminine shape. The belt sits high on the waist, where you are likely to be thinnest, so it’s completely flattering. Fluid draping that is reminiscent of Greek goddesses and their classical gowns offers visual interest and a flowing, graceful quality.
This strapless bridal gown needs little adornment. Since it’s the perfect blend of modern, edgy style and traditional bridal gown elements, why not play up its sensual look by wearing your hair down and going for a natural, sun-kissed make up look? Add a rhinestone cuff, drop earrings, and high-heeled wedding shoes to accessorize this beautiful white wedding dress.
Sheer Elegance for the Leaner Figure
If you’ve got a lean build, there are so many options for your wedding gown. Any style, from simple slip dress to frothy confection, will work on your body type. However, you should avoid plunging necklines, as you may not have the curves required to hold these gowns in place on the big day. The show-stopping gown pictured above will play up the delicacy of your body, while giving you the fairytale romance that you crave. A fitted bodice creates a little touch of hourglass beauty, while rows of ruffles offer a sense of femininity that is just so much fun to wear.
Flatter your thinner face with wild curls or a full, volumized blowout. Dramatic lips, groomed eyebrows, and blush placed high on your cheekbones will coordinate with the elegance of this look. This gown needs dramatic hair and makeup to keep the look in balance. Accessorize with a fun choker necklace that spotlights your swanlike throat.
If you’re worried about the expense of buying one of our affordable gowns, we do offer a “rent wedding dress” service that will help even the most budget-conscious bride-to-be to wear the gown of her dreams…contact us today to find out more.
