Things to Consider When Designing Your Wedding Dress

Do you want a fabulous wedding dress that is head turning and uniquely yours? Why not try to design your own? You’ll be unique and it will cost you less.

I know designing your wedding dress is within your capabilities. If others can do it, then you can as well. All you have to do is consider the following:

Decide what type of wedding you want.

Do you want a church wedding which is formal, civil wedding which is lesser formal but can be as serious and extravagant as the church wedding or the non-traditional such as beach and garden wedding that can be as romantic and extravagant as well but will give you freedom to be creative?

Know your body shape.

Try to stand naked in front of a full-length mirror. Reality may hurt sometimes but hey, it can’t be that bad. Then know the style of dress that will compliment your body shape and your best features.

•Apple (triangle downward) – wider waist and smaller shoulders.
•Pear (inverted triangle) – upper body is wider than the lower body.
•Banana (rectangular) – straight up and down types.
•Hour Glass – waist is slimmer than the upper and lower body.

Choose fabric that will reflect your indivuality.

•Satin – smooth, with glossy surface and dull back…as soft as rayon or silk; embody elegance.
•Silk – soft, smooth; embody luxury and elegance.
•Taffeta – crisp and smooth woven fabric; bright and elegant.
•Organza – light and can be easily paired with other fabrics; gives soft, romantic look.
•Georgette – sheen, soft, flows well; emdody seductiveness.
•Charmeuse – made from silk with satin finish, light-weight, free-flowing drape, extremely popular; embody luxury and sophistication.

That’s it! You can start designing your wedding dress now and imagine that you are wearing it on the day you are dreaming of…your wedding day.

Scarf – A Fashionable Piece

I used to own and use scarf when I was in high school…you know the fanciful teen fashion. Oh, I miss those days! When I entered college, I preferred to be simple, besides too much accessorizing is not allowed in our school. Now I realized that I need to buy myself again a pair of elegant scarf. It may not be expensive but good enough to match most of my clothes. I may not be too old for that, am I? 🙂

Scarf nowadays is not just used for religious reasons or to keep you warm. It is now a fashionable piece. It can be used as cover for big breasts or define the shape of your breast without showing the cleavage on your plunging neckline. I don’t need scarf for this purpose though as I don’t have boobies to hide or define, lol! It can also be used as headband, a perfect hair accessory most especially on summer. It can used as neck accessory as well for that effortless fashionable look.
