All eyes will be upon you when you choose a bright, scarlet gown that makes your skin glow and matches the color scheme of the season. If you love short, strapless gowns that give you the look of a Cosmo cover model, be sure to indulge in a hot design, such as the embellished red number shown above. Wear your hair down, in loose waves, to give yourself a touch of Hollywood glamour that really gets noticed.

Subtle Jewel Tones are Perfect for the Season…

This elegant, halter-style design will show off your pretty arms and shoulders, while also creating an enviable, hourglass silhouette.

About the Designer…

wedding dress

Sophia is an Aussie-born bridal gown designer of great renown, and she began her career working as a designer for Maggie Sottero. After honing her skills for over a decade, this talented seamstress moved on to open her own wedding gown design company, and the rest is history.

Today, Sophia is proud of her lovely bridal dress designs, which feature exceptional tailoring due to her years of skill working with needle, thread, fabric and embellishments. She prides herself on creating form-fitting gowns that highlight a woman’s curves to perfection, while also giving her a soft and sensual look.

Choosing a female designer for your own wedding gown is a great idea, as who could possibly understand a woman’s concerns and wishes more than another female? By selecting one of Sophia Tolli’s wedding dresses, you will be making a very wise investment in your own wedding-day self-confidence. When you choose one of these refined and stunning frocks, you’ll be perfectly dressed for one of the biggest days of your life.

The Sophia Tolli by Mon Cheri Collection

If you’re into glamour, but prefer to embrace a traditional wedding-day silhouette, with a nipped-in waist, strapless bodice and full skirt, you’ll love the beautiful princess-style bridal dresses found in the Sophia Tolli Collection. Whether you opt for pure white or a subtle (and gorgeous!) profusion of metallic satins and creamy lace (as shown above), you’ll love the way you look and feel in your Sophia Tolli wedding dress.

As you can see, these dresses are beautifully crafted to accentuate your waist and bosom, while skimming over your hips and thighs. This universally-flattering look works for almost every woman, and it really fulfills the fairy tale ideal that most women dream of for their own wedding day.

When you select a gown from the collection, you won’t need to spend a fortune on accessories, as the gown’s lush lines will stand alone. However, you should feel free to accent your design with a veil and headpiece, high-heeled pumps or sandals, and a little sparkling Feri jewellry.

To make your whole look cohesive and pleasing, go for simple hair, such as a chic chignon or up-do, and then choose rosy mauve tones for your wedding-day makeup. Flushed cheeks, glossy lips, and shining hair will give you a healthy, glowing beauty that is the perfect complement to your ultra-feminine wedding gown. If mauve isn’t your color, consider warm, peachy-pink makeup that flatters your skin tone. Usually, cool pink and mauve will work well for paler, cool-complected women, whereas peach will be perfect for women with yellow undertones.

At Best for Bride, We Offer Expert Assistance with All of Your Wedding Planning

At Best for Bride, we are here to help with your bridal gown selection, and we are also ready to give you assistance with almost every other aspect of your wedding planning.

Sleek Wedding Gowns For Sophisticated Brides-to-be

bridal gown

Many brides-to-be are looking for sleeker designs that defy the “Disney princess” stereotype; if you’re not wild about voluminous skirts and frou-frou details …you’re definitely not the only one who’s looking for something different!

Plenty of women want more streamlined bridal gowns that hug the body or fall in a simple column; these dresses don’t usually feature an excess of fabric and embellishment. Luckily, there are a range of gorgeous wedding gowns that are incredibly elegant and refined – these bridal dresses are made for women who appreciate the art of understatement.

 In general, sleek gowns will look best when they are accompanied by modern hairstyles, strong makeup, and bold accessories. Examples of famous women who prefer body-conscious, refined evening dresses and bridal gowns include Emily Blunt, Evan Rachel Wood, and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Confidence is important when choosing a gown that pushes the envelope and reveals your shape; couture details and high-fashion touches require the right attitude. If you’ve got natural presence, and you’re not afraid of stylized and cutting-edge wedding dresses, you’ll probably adore the modern designs shown on this page…

Simple, But Never Plain…

If you want to wear the dress (rather than the dress wearing you!), a simple, flowing column style, such as the striking gown shown above, may be an ideal choice. Designed to highlight the face and hair, as well as the delicacy of a woman’s shoulders, arms, decolletage and throat, a fluid gown like this one shows ladylike confidence. A chic necklace crafted from sheer ribbon and a sparkling pin will add a touch of high-fashion whimsy to this simple and stunning frock.

Show Your Minimalist Style…

A touch of pretty shimmer adds richness to this luxurious strapless wedding gown. Fitted and sleek, this lustrous satin number is incredibly sexy, without being remotely inappropriate. This gown really does underscore the value of simplicity in design; highly flattering and very low-key, it shows superior quality and beauty, without an ocean of ruffles or tulle…

Wear your hair down for added sensuality…skip the veil to put the spotlight on your flowing tresses and tailored bridal gown. Simple high heels, subtle drop earrings, and a delicate jewelled bracelet will be ideal accessories for this type of design…

Makeup Tips

To make the most of your sleek style, put the emphasis on perfect skin; a luminous complexion is the perfect complement to a sleek and stylized dress. To get the right look, use a primer, such as Smashbox Photo Finish – this sort of cosmetic smooths the skin to prepare it for foundation. A great base, such as Laura Mercier’s Creme Smooth Foundation, will give the skin a beautiful glow.

Follow up with pressed powder blush that matches the undertones in your skin. For minimalist eyes, use eye shadows in neutral tones, such as cream, white, and taupe, and limit mascara to the top lashes only. A groomed eyebrow is very important – lightly pencil in your brows to define them, and then make sure they are shaped properly.

For finishing touches, add a rich and sophisticated lip color – treat yourself to a runway-ready tube of Nars Satin Lipstick in Russian Doll (an elegant burgundy).  Dust your face with translucent powder to set your foundation and blush.

Pretty Wedding Dresses For Petite Brides-to-be

wedding dresses

Sometimes, petite women have to work harder to find exceptional evening dresses and wedding gowns that are designed for their smaller proportions. Altering a dress designed for a taller woman may be an option, but it’s always better to find a bridal dress that is cut to fit your body, right from the very start. Luckily, today’s designers are paying attention to the needs of petite women, and creating spectacular gowns that fit their particular body type.

Petite women aren’t necessarily size 0 or size 2 – they are simply smaller in stature, and they need the right cuts and fabrics for their height. To help petite brides-to-be make the most of their beauty as they walk down the aisle, we’ve compiled some perfect wedding dresses designed just for petite brides-to-be. To accessorize these gowns, veils, headpieces, and bridal rings should also be scaled to a tinier body….

Princess-Style Gowns Highlight The Delicate Femininity Of Petite Builds…

bridal dress

You don’t need to give up all of the bells and whistles of a luxurious, princess-style wedding gown, simply because you are petite. In fact, the doll-like beauty of a feminine, petite body type can be highlighted by classic, princess-style bridal dresses.

Channel your inner Disney Princess by treating yourself to a gown like the one shown above – fitted tightly through the torso, this design nips in your waist, creating a pleasing and classic Cinderella-inspired silhouette that is so flattering to a petite build. The best petite wedding dresses (like this one) are custom-made to fit properly through the bodice and hips – they will also have the right length for your height.

On your wedding day, you should have a bridal gown that is scaled to your proportions – it will hug you in all the right places, and alterations will be minimal. Treat yourself to a princess-style petite wedding gown, and accessorize with a delicate, glittery headband or headpiece that is also smaller in scale.

Glamorous Elegance Worthy Of The Hollywood Red Carpet…

If you’re looking for sleeker, modern style that has a touch of Hollywood glamor, you’ll love this fitted gown, with its elegant, cream-colored fabric (white is also available) and clean lines. Designed to be elegant and subtle, this gown is womanly and alluring….especially since it’s been designed to work with your own petite proportions. Fit problems won’t be an issue when you choose this matte satin stunner – and the only accessory you’ll really need is your radiant smile (and perhaps a glittery necklace, or sheer, half-length veil).

bridal veil

Finding the right veil for your look is about scale – look for sheer, filmy styles that aren’t full-length (these will overpower your petite build). The short veil shown above would be a perfect choice – it’s trimmed in gorgeous lace and embellished for a rich effect, yet it’s still very sheer and simple…
