Describe your store in three words
Intimate, Elegant, attention to detail

On Average, how many months (or even years?) before her wedding does a future bride start shopping for her dress?
Typically a bride will start shopping for a wedding gown about a year before her wedding. It is always important to start early so there is plenty of time to order the gown and get the needed alterations before her big day.

Does she usually know exactly what she wants or does she come in with no idea in her mind?
Most of the time our brides have an idea of what they think they what. But it is our challenge to style them in what will make them look gorgeous on their wedding day. Dressing a brides character is what we strive to do ensuring she wears the gown not, the gown wears her.

The perfect wedding dress for each body type

Ballgown, mermaid, trumpet, A-line, empire, natural waist, dropped waist… there are so many shapes and forms when it comes to wedding dresses, but not necessarily every cut flatters every figure.

Here are a few tips from us for finding the right dress for you body type.

If you are pear shaped

If you have big hips or a pear shaped body, you could either look for a classic A-line silhouette or a natural waistline that flows away from the hips. But if you want to emphasize on your curves, you could also choose a mermaid gown.

Our pick:

 
A natural waistline and a ruffled skirt to draw attention away from the hips:  Style 77956
If you want to highlight your hips, this beaded mermaid gown is a great choice:  Style CT105.
 

If you are petite

A strapless mermaid or trumpet gown is perfect for petites. You can also go for a style with a waistline above the natural waist, since it will make you appear longer.

Avoid dropped waist or big ballgowns;  you don’t want to disappear in your dress.

Our pick:
A strapless or one-shoulder mermaid gown is a great option for a petite girl: Style AK99
This high waistline will make a short body appear taller: Style EK992
 

If you are plus sized

Diagonal pleads along the waist have a slimming effect are a great choice for curvier bodies. Classic A-lines or ballgowns are also a good option.

Our pick:
Classic A-line with a sweetheart neckline and slimming pleads: Style EK977
A great ballgown with lace details and illusion neckline: Style EK967
If you are busty

Choose a V- or neckline or halter gown to show some cleavage. Don’t cover your chest, it will make you look even bustier.
A great option for bigger busts: Style AK80
 

If you are small chested

A sweetheart neckline […]
