As I was surfing the net for useful wedding info, I chance upon this website called confetti.co.uk.
So far, I think no other wedding sites that I know of is as informative and useful as this.
They have wedding articles from “Choosing your bridesmaids dresses” to “So you’re pregnant“.
I have pasted one of their articles which is about choosing the perfect wedding dress and I hope it will be useful for you.Choosing the Perfect Wedding Dress: The Basics
Find the bridal gown to suit your figure
When you imagine your perfect wedding day, do you see a realistic image of yourself?
We all want to look our most gorgeous for the big day — glowing, beautiful and with the body of a Hollywood starlet, after months of unwavering dieting and rigorous exercise. But when the daydream fades, we know that most of us don’t look much like the celebrity icons of glossy magazines.
Worried? Don’t be. Beauty comes in all different shapes and sizes, and the best way to look your best is not to conjure up a picture of someone you?re not, but to concentrate on the real image of yourself. Just aim to look like you — only even more fantastic.
First things first
When thinking about the image you want to create on your wedding day, start from the familiar. Think about what you normally wear, your favourite colours, where the ceremony’s taking place, and the tone you’re aiming for — traditional, avant-garde or relaxed. Once you have a clear idea of these elements in your mind, you can start applying them to your wedding outfit.
If your body or choice of ceremony isn’t right for a white puffy dress, don’t feel you have to go for it just because of the traditional image of a bride. Having said that, it?s usually a good rule to try on a variety of different styles, even those you think you will hate. Often brides who were convinced they are the minimalist type fall in love with a princess ball gown, and wannabe-Cinderellas find they are actually more of a streamlined kind of girl.
Another tip to help you decide on a wedding look that’s right for you is to think about colour, especially if you have a fuller figure. The days of virginal brides in obligatory fairy-tale white are long gone. Far better to go for a dress made in your favourite colour or in one that makes your skin glow. Do, however, bear in mind that if you’re going for a very bright colour, you should keep the detail on the dress to an absolute minimum.
