Wedding Advice: What is the Best Wedding Dress Style for My Body Type?

Wedding Advice: What is the Best Wedding Dress Style for My Body Type? Tips from Nayri, Wedding Fashion Expert Often times brides will ask their stylist, “Based on my body type what do you think is going to look best on me?” Now, here’s the thing. Let’s generalize the situation and say we have two brides who fall into the pear-shaped category and are also both petite. Just because they have very similar body types does not mean the same dress will look good on both of them. Nayri says, “There is no general rule of thumb on what will look good on what body type because everybody’s proportions are a little bit different.” She also advises to not focus on shapes and silhouettes of dresses. Instead, ask yourself, “Do I want to show off my body or not?” Once you figure this out, you can experiment with different types […]

Wedding Advice: What is a Sample Sale VS. Trunk Show

Wedding Advice: What is a Sample Sale VS. Trunk Show Tips from Nayri, Wedding Fashion Expert Sample sales are a way for brides to purchase a dress that is discounted and ready for immediate wear. It is the store or designer selling their physical samples that brides have tried on to order their dresses. These gowns may show signs of love, but sample sales are a bargain hunters dream! One thing to be mindful of though is the sizes being offered. A bride should not aim to purchase a gown that is much smaller than her size in order to avoid unrealistic alteration expectations, but purchasing a gown that is just a bit smaller is usually okay because a corset back can be put in rather than a zipper to ensure a better fit! Trunk shows are when designers bring in a larger selection of dresses than the store typically […]
