Evie Bridal Basque by Panache in ivory

The summer wedding season is in full swing. Marquees are being erected, cheesy DJs, jazz bands and string quartets are being booked, vibrant blooms are being tied and summer puddings are being prepared. Wedding dresses are strapless, full-skirted with acres of taffeta or straight and sleek in vintage lace. Finding the perfect wedding dress should be a fantastic experience for every bride, the journey to find THE ONE is as important as the end result. It doesn’t matter if your dress cost half of your total budget, or was handed down from your granny, or is from a high street collection, because when you try on your dream dress for the first time, nothing feels quite as special as that moment (apart from the second time you get to wear it on your big day!).

When choosing a wedding dress style, the same rules apply as you would adopt when choosing your normal everyday outfits. Sweetheart, deep-Vs and scoop necklines are best, full-skirted dresses or fluted bottoms are great to balance out the figure of a curvy girl. If you are a curvy bride approaching your wedding day or you are close to the curvy bride, you are also going to need advice on underwear. The right lingerie can make a big difference to your day, it is important for the look of the dress, that you have the right bra too. You will need to be comfortable all day long, and it is a very long day indeed.
