Although there is a universe of wedding dresses, not all of them are alike. A wedding dress that doesn’t flatter your build will not help you, however fantastic its features may be. So, keep in mind that your choice should be a dress that enhances your best features.

While many wedding dresses qualify as “just another dress”, there are certain features that make a statement. So, how do you find one that will have your guests spell-struck? Let us look at the features in a wedding dress that are worth a “WOW!”
Stunning illusion necklines
Illusion necklines are the rage this season. Choose a dress that has stunning details in lace or with embellishments in crystal or metal beading and it will impress! It is not only the neckline, but the details on the back also, that play a crucial role in transforming a dress from good to Fantastic!
The stunning display of embellishments on sheer fabric, starts at the neck and continues down the bodice. The effect is amazing. The dress also features a beautiful illusion back that is perfect from every angle.
Oversized motif that grabs attention
A striking motif which is executed with perfection is hard to miss, and it enhances the overall effect of a dress. It could even be a detachable accessory that adds to the visual interest and transforms an average-looking wedding gown into an exquisite one.
In this elegant Mori Lee 2724 Chantilly lace gown from the Spring 2015 collection, the embellished heart-shaped applique at the bust is the one factor that makes the dress one stand out.
Drama of a signature element
Who can resist the allure of a stunning signature element that adds oodles of glamour to a wedding gown? Choose a dress with a uniquely attractive feature that pops out, and nobody will be able to take their eyes off you.
Notice the impressive waterfall of laser cut organza ruffles in this 2685 bridal gown from the Mori Lee 2014 Fall Collection. A stunning skirt like this is dramatic and will forever be remembered as a phenomenal wedding gown.
Opulence of silk
Silk is considered the epitome of luxury, and it is hard to beat the richness and royalty of a dress that shines with a silky flourish. Dresses in Larissa Satin or Duchess satin look elegant and classic, and when these are embellished with further details, the effect is mesmerizing.
This Mori Lee 2722 bridal gown in Larissa Satin not only features the glossy shine of silk, but its beauty is further enhanced by the pleated details in the bodice, the scintillating waistband and the cascading layers in the skirt.

The average-sized woman has an ocean of choices in wedding dresses, but petite and plus-sized brides have fewer options. Most dresses are designed with the size 8 bride as the model. Fortunately, there are designers who create stunning wedding gowns in sizes up to 24.
You may even find a suitable dress in a collection that isn’t specifically for plus-sizes. All you need to do is look in the right places, and know what your options are. To get you on track, let us take a look at the various patterns that look great on plus-size brides.
Who is a plus-size bride?
The fashion industry places sizes above size 12 in the plus-size category. Although this number may differ from country to country, the cut-off is somewhere close to this number.
It is good to remember that although you may be a plus-size bride, there are fabulous fashionable gowns that will match your wedding dress dreams, and you needn’t settle for what is available in the plus-size section alone.
Plus-size wedding shopping tips
We recommend that you call the bridal shop before you visit, and inform them that you want to look at gowns in bigger sizes. Although most salons stock gowns in most sizes, this will ensure that you have sufficient choices to try on, when you visit. If you have shortlisted any favorites, inform the bridal boutique so they can make arrangements to have it available when you drop in.
Brides come in all sizes and shapes, and no two gowns are alike. Pay particular attention to your body proportions to choose a dress that suits you. If you are large-chested, a higher neckline or dresses with illusion necklines and/or sleeves would offer sufficient coverage. Similarly, a gown with a fitted waist and full skirt will balance out a large bust, and create an hourglass structure.
If you want the classic, elegant look, choose an A-line skirt or ball gown dress. The ball gown will camouflage your middle, if you are well endowed in that area. An empire waist gown which cleverly elevates your waist, or a dress which gathers on one side are other good options. These patterns are slimming and can add the illusion of few extra inches. Cap sleeve gowns look sexy on full figures, and are classic and stylish.
Another must-try dresses are those with corset backs. These draw out your curves beautifully, allowing you to show off your best features.
Trust your bridal consultant when she recommends silhouettes other than what you have in mind. Being in the business for a long time, she knows how a dress will look on your frame. So, don’t write off her suggestion for a dress that doesn’t look attractive on the hanger. Try it out, and you may be pleasantly surprised with the result.
One word of advice, don’t try to hide your ample curves beneath a mass of fabric. Find a dress that allows you to flaunt them; you will feel gorgeous and everyone will agree that you look great. Weddings are all about feeling fantastic, and the best way to do it is by being yourself!
