Buying a wedding dress online can be a bit scary because you can’t try it on or feel the fabric. Buying a dress at a local store can be quite expensive and you have to deal with pushy sales people. You need to figure out which way you feel the less stress and go in that direction. I was on a budget plus I can’t handle pushy people so I bought my dress online.
I had so much fun picking my dress online. I printed out my choices and then wrote the pro’s and con’s on each dress. I was going back and forth between A-Line Wedding Dresses and Ball Gown Wedding Dresses. I wanted to be beautiful on my special day like every other bride so I had to get the perfect dress. I knew I could get a cheap A-Line Wedding Dresses for under $200. However, my eye kept looking at the princess ball gown wedding dresses. I wanted to be a princess like I imagined so many times in my dreams.
A-Line wedding dresses look so sophisticated and I was in my 30’s so everyone was pointing me in that direction. My mom kept telling me the A-Line dress would make me look skinnier and grown up. A-Line wedding dresses have an elegant skirt that slowly flairs out from the waist line to create a beautiful silhouette which will make anyone looking stunning. Due to the classic simple style, the A-line dress is appropriate for any wedding (backyard,beach or big church). I love how it flatters almost all body types. The long lines can create the illusion of height and the full skirt of can also hide a larger lower body. All which I need!
I was told that the ball gown dress is most appropriate for large and traditional weddings. Beautiful ball gown wedding dresses can accommodate most body types but it is ideal for slender or pear-shaped figures as the full skirt helps to accentuate the waist and hide the lower body. I have a large bust so I was concerned about that but this style will help to create the hourglass I would want. I also had to think about my height though- I’m short! I didn’t want the dress to over power me but to feel like a princess for a day it would be so worth getting it tailored to fit me perfectly.
