Fashion Advice About Choosing Your Gown:
- Always know what the bride wants for her day. If she wants you to wear a certain color or style, then keep that in mind when shopping for your gown.
- If she has left the color choice to you then try to have an idea of what colors you look best in. What colors make you feel great when you wear them? Also, think about what colors people compliment you on when you wear them. Do cool colors suit you? Perhaps you look best in warmer tones like sienna, chocolate, or coral? Go with what looks best with your hair color, skin tone and eye color.
- Pleating and ruching are great figure flattering details that can disguise a tummy or other lumps and bumps. Ruching can also add curves to a figure that is void of any!
- Remember that it’s the bride’s day to shine so don’t go too over the top with the gown you choose (unless she has given you the go-ahead of course!). Looking ultra flashy and too glammed up will upstage the bride.
- Tailor it! Make sure your gown has been tailored to your body. A perfectly tailored gown will make your figure look its best.
