Designers are becoming more and more sophisticated and generous in using expensive fabrics and complicated cuts and designs for wedding dresses so that a high price is well reasonable. They learn consumers' demands for wedding attire and see that modern brides pay more attention to the exclusiveness of the wedding dress than to the dress's price.
Nevertheless, there is no need to buy a wedding dress from a top designer to look magnificent at your wedding. There are many producers, who offer comparatively cheap wedding dresses and although not finished with gemstones, they look pretty and elegant. In general, wedding dresses range in price from five hundred to fifteen thousand dollars. An average gown is about two thousand dollars. Cheap wedding dresses are typically made in an assembly-line fashion, while couture dresses are handcrafted.
You should first decide how much money you could spend on your wedding dress. Ten percent of your total wedding budget is usually a good guideline. If you are looking for cheap wedding dresses only, an excellent idea will be to consider used wedding dresses' offers, since you may find used wedding dresses of exclusive designs and by top manufacturers and at much lower prices than if you have bought them in a boutique. Nonetheless, exclusiveness means expensiveness, and although the price for these dresses is lower, it will be still higher than the price of assembly-line fashion dresses.
No matter whether your choice is cheap wedding dresses or more expensive offers, the main point is that the dress should be appropriate for your complexion. If it is not, no exclusiveness will help you look good. Here are some tips to consider:
If your body type is straight (thick waist), you will look good in a wedding dress of Empire waist, A-line, tiered skirts silhouettes with a decorative neckline, focusing eyes away from the waist. You should probably stay away from the Princess line or Basque or dropped waist silhouettes and avoid plain necklines, such as bateau or unadorned short scoops.
If you have broad shoulders and/or are big busted, a ball gown or A-line silhouettes with V-neck or plunging necklines will be fitting. You should avoid Empire waist and such necklines, as strapless or spaghetti straps.
If you are full figured (round), these wedding dress styles should look good: silhouettes: a ball gown or A-line, necklines: V-neck or plunging necklines. You should possibly pass up the following styles: silhouettes: Empire waist or sheath, necklines: strapless or spaghetti straps.
Hourglass (or figure 8): you will look great in a wedding dress of A-line or drop waist full silhouettes with sweetheart or V-neck necklines. It is better to stay away from empire or ball gown silhouettes, while you need not worry about necklaces.
Bottom heavy figure (pear shaped): you will find proper the dresses of A-line, Basque waist or ball gown silhouettes with strapless or soft round or scooped necklines. You should avoid sheath silhouettes and V-neck necklines.
If you have a short waist, primarily consider Princess or A-line silhouettes with Portrait or Halter necklines. And you should probably stay away from sheath silhouettes, while all styles of necklaces are suitable for you.
Consult wedding shop assistants about the types of silhouettes and necklines mentioned above and select the one, which will emphasize the most attractive features. You will look great, not depending on your dress's cost if the dress suits you perfectly.
