A part of your exciting journey to the altar is shopping to find your perfect dress! It’s true what they say: you’ll know it’s the one when you put it on! Girls, we can pin photos to our boards and tear pictures from magazines like there’s no tomorrow but it’s good to have a few terms handy so you can explain what you like and what you don’t like. There are many elements to your wedding gown but here are a few we think will be useful as you begin your search.
Silhouette –
This refers to the overall shape of your dress. Common silhouettes are a-line, empire, ball gown, sheath, trumpet and mermaid; each of which portrays a different mood and style.
Dipped –
This neckline is slightly curved above each breast, but isn’t as dramatic as the sweetheart neckline which mimics the top half of a heart.
Watteau –
This train is attached at the shoulders, rather than the waist, and falls to the hemline of the gown.
We encourage you and your girls to learn some more wedding dress terms to make your shopping experience all the more fun! Once you find the one, you’ll see that all the shopping and studying will have been worth it.
