Surely the bride is the queen of her wedding and her maids are her ladies. Their dresses are in the center of everybody's attention. Mention should be made that these women spend a lot of time choosing their wedding dresses. And it is no surprise nowadays.
There are such a multitude of bridal dresses and bridesmaid dresses that only a woman can deal with it while an ordinary man will simply go crazy! The wedding dress may be of several kinds: empire, ball-dress, princess and close or narrow dress. Each of these types has its own characteristic features (for example, the princess wedding dress is made up by vertical sutures extending from the arm-hole till the bottom of the dress) and the choice of the wedding dress must depend on them to be sure that the dress will not do your slender figure fat, or your long feet short, or your nice face less prettier.
Besides, you should remember that the wedding dress cannot only stress your splendor, but also improve some of your weak spots. For example, if you have small breast, you should chose the wedding dress with tight corset which must be decorated with embroidery or beading, increasing optically the size. And if your slender waist is too slender in comparison with your hips, you should avoid very tight or very wide wedding dresses with a lot of decoration along the waistline. The wedding dress is sewed of different types of material and combination of clothes.
Choose any you want: silk, open-work, soft furnishings, satin, taffeta, lace or may be jean cloth. The color of the dress may be any you wish. A lot of brides nowadays opt for colored wedding dresses rather than the traditional 'white gown' and even dresses that look white are often a subtle shade of off white such as beige, champagne, or ivory. The best wedding color is the one that makes your skin glow.
Now many designers popularize very sexual wedding dresses with deep decollete and open back of cobweb. Though we can`t help mentioning that traditions are also on the pick of their popularity now.
Many people prefer to get married in their national clothes or in the clothes of the country they admire. Others organize extreme weddings with extreme wedding dresses; when people arrange such weddings their wedding dresses are simply special costumes (diving-suits or parachutes). So if you are a bride or a bridesmaid, be ready to make this choice, to decide this dilemma or, in other words, to choose your bridal or bridesmaid dress.
You may do it alone or with the help of your mother, your sister and your friends, or you may go to some wedding salons or beauty shops and ask a specialist for a help. The most important thing here is that you are to be sure that all mentioned people do not want to marry your bridegroom or to be better than you on your wedding.
In any case choosing your wedding dress, do not forget the following rules: first - your future husband should like your dress, he will see you the whole day and night wearing it; second - the simpler your dress, the better your dress-making; third - the greater number of the guests, the more eccentric and extravagant must be a silhouette of your wedding dress or you may risk to disappear in the crowd of invitees.
