Look Stunning on Your Big Day: Shopping for Your Wedding Dress

If there’s one event that a woman should feel like a princess, it’s none other than her wedding day. No matter how jaded your look may be about love, walking down the aisle will still bring out the romantic side in you so you’d usually give it your all when it comes to finalizing the wedding plans.

Let’s say that you already said yes to the marriage proposal of your significant other. One of the major details that you need to decide on is the dress. Fortunately, many brides say that despite having tried on dozens of wedding dresses, they would immediately know and feel if a particular dress is the one that’s perfect for them. It’s only after choosing the wedding dress that you can choose the bridal hairstyle and the accessories to go along with it.

A Quick Look at the 2012 Bridal Trends

For those who have not yet determined which wedding dress to wear, here is a quick look at the hottest trends for bridal gowns in 2012, so you can become a stunning, fashionista bride:

Blush shades for wedding gowns.

Gone are the days when different shades of white are the only options that you have when choosing which wedding gown to wear. For 2012, actresses like Reese Witherspoon chose a stunning blush pink shade instead of the traditional white when she walked down the aisle. It might take a bit of guts to pull off wearing a wedding gown that’s not in the traditional white shade – but if the color is pretty enough for actresses like Witherspoon to wear, then it’s probably high time for other brides to take the same fashion risks, too.

Illusion necklines.

Another emerging trend for 2012 for those who are about to say their “I dos” in the altar are gowns with illusion necklines. If you want a strapless gown but you would not like to show too much skin, wear a bridal gown with illusion necklines made from sheer material, and are usually designed with embellishments.

Two-tiered skirts.

Feel like a fairy tale princess in gowns which are made with two-tiered skirts. They can be voluminous or a bit on the simpler side – but the two tiers on the skirt make all the difference.

Lace sleeves.

Kate Middleton wore a romantic gown with lace sleeves when she wed Prince William. For 2012, similar styles of wedding gowns can be seen worn by brides who are a bit on the trendy side.

Shopping for Your Bridal Gown by Type

If you’re still not sure about which gown to wear on your big day, here is a list of the types that you can choose from based on the silhouette of the dress:

A- line gowns

Ball gowns

Gowns with empire waists


Princess or mermaid gowns

Wedding gowns can also be classified by the hemline, the type of fabric, the style and the type of train used on the design. No matter which type of bridal gown you end up wearing, make sure to have the proper bridal hairstyle to go along with it. Have a trial session with your stylist days before the wedding so that you can decide which bridal hairstyle will flatter your dress and the shape of your face the most.

Make Sure that Your Dress Suits Your Body Type

Naturally, your goal as a bride is to look your most stunning. By making sure that you have chosen a gown that’s flattering for your body type, you will definitely look the part and be a glowing bride on your big day.
