The best Wedding Dress styles to wear for a plus size bride

As a plus size person I know how difficult it is to shop for our size. I used to end up wearing black so I blended in. This was until I got engaged!

Your wedding say is a day with all eyes on you and you are going to have hundreds of photographs taken, so you need to feel comfortable and you want to look good.

The best advice is go in to a bridal store and try on lots of different styles and you will see what looks better for your shape. But here is a quick guide to advise you on what may look best.

If you have an hourglass figure, you would look best in A-line gowns or even mermaid/trumpet style dresses.  You have a tiny waist and so you want show that off!

Pear shaped brides look best in an empire waist dress and especially strapless ones!  This style adds extra ‘wow’ to the top half  and when teamed with a fuller skirt can flatter your lower curves.

Apple-brides should choose a ballgown style dress.  This will help to add volume to the lower half.  Avoid spaghetti straps and corsets which can cause skin spillage that you really don’t want.

Short waisted brides should look for gowns with a dropped waist, which will make  make your torso appear longer. A flair at the bottom of the dress will also help the look.

Busty brides should look for a V neck dress as this will allow you to get underwear which will support you throughout a very long day. And we all know how much our girls need support! You could also look at off the shoulder or straight across strapless, but avoid sweetheart and plunging necklines!

Take your time and when you go to try on dresses take the one person in your life who will tell you the truth!

The 4 C’s you need to know when buying an engagement ring

Image

There are 4 things to consider accordingly to the experts when buying a diamond :

Colour :  The majority of engagement rings are a very white coloured diamond. Colours are graded from D (colourless and very rare), but most diamonds are around a F-H.

Clarity : Being natural, there will be imperfections in the diamond. The less imperfections, the greater the clarity and the more light is reflected from the diamond, causing it to “sparkle”. Naturally, more clarity increases its value. Perfectly flawless diamonds with no internal flaws or surface blemishes are very hard to find as they are extremely rare.

Cut : There are many different ways to cut a diamond and the type of cut effects the sparkle of the diamond. The cut that produces the most sparkle is the round cut (also known as brilliant), while radiant and princess cuts are good at hiding flaws. Other cuts including square, emerald, pear, marquise, cushion, ssscher, and heart-shaped.

Carat : This is the weight of the diamond. Big is not always better

You need to consider all 4 C’s before choosing your diamond.
