The most beautiful of bridal dresses is one that highlights your beauty, inside and out. Wedding photography forever captures the story of your day and your love, but also of you. We share some tips on choosing dresses and accessories for the perfect wedding photos.
There are varying styles of bridal dresses
Choosing the perfect dress for your body type and personal style will make you feel beautiful and result in the most beautiful photos.
A-Line Bridal Dresses
Flattering on all body types, this dress is exactly what the name implies… A fitted bodice with a skirt falling away creating the shape of an A. These dresses are timeless.
Ball Gown Bridal Dresses
This classic will make every bride feel and look like a princess. Keep in mind that you are the star of the show on your special day… So if you are smaller in stature, the voluminous bell skirt may overwhelm instead of celebrating you.
Mermaid Bridal Dresses
For the bride with the hour glass figure… Or the slim bride who wants to accentuate her curves, the mermaid dress will fit you like a glove. The shape of the dress is dramatic in itself, so you can go with a simpler material without losing the effect.
Column Bridal Dresses
Most flattering on a slim bride, the column, or sheath, dress creates a lengthening illusion. Not every bride dreams of drama in a dress, some prefer simple elegance… The column dress delivers, and is also incredibly comfortable and accentuates your body shape.
Tea Length Bridal Dresses
A flared skirt falling beneath the knee, often mid-calf makes the tea length dress gorgeous on all figures. A nod to a bygone era, the tea length is perfect for a slightly vintage feel.
Accessorize to accentuate
Choose a veil that won’t overshadow your dress. Keep in mind that the choice will affect your hairstyle options.
Prioritize comfort… If you choose “glass slippers” for the photos, bring along flats for the reception. Alternatively, flash your personality with sneakers matching the dress or your wedding palette! (Colourful sneakers under a traditional dress make for gorgeous photos!)
The bridal bouquet is a part of your look. Work with professionals to ensure only the freshest flowers and designs! Matching flowers from the bridal bouquet to bridesmaids bouquets and the groom and groomsmen boutonnieres will bring the photos together beautifully.
Choose flowers that match the shade of your dress or the wedding colour scheme. If your dress is detailed, keep the bouquet simple. If it’s simple, you can go bold and bigger. In place of a veil, you can use flowers in your hair or, if your theme is more bohemian, a gorgeous flower crown.
Your wedding day is one of the most magical days of your life. Whether you choose a fully arranged wedding package or add an element of DIY, there’s nothing we at Enjoy Flowers love more than looking at the beautiful photos of the weddings our flowers play a part in.
