Your formal wear selecting depends on the occasion and your role in it. Formal occasions the ROM, Actual Wedding Day, Wedding Dinner Ceremony.Other than the bride and groom, formal wear is required for bridesmaids, best men, flower girls, and ring bearers. Wedding guests usually dress formally also.
Silhouette or Shape of the Dress: Depends on the lady’s figure. For example, some figure flaws can be hidden with an A-Line style: It has a slimming shape, vertical seams from the shoulder down, and ends with a flared skirt, resembling a letter A shape. A more traditional style, the Ball Gown – a dress with a full bodice with natural waistline and a full skirt – is elegant on most body shapes and helps to make your face, neck, and waist stand out while covering difficult hips. But if you are proud of your curvy body, then check out the Mermaid, a narrow style with tight body and a skirt that flares at the knees. This style is less comfortable than the others. For the same body-fitting but more comfortable silhouette, the Sheath, similar to the Mermaid, closely follows the body line, and has no defined waistline. This style well accommodates shorter ladies, because its clean, horizontal line helps to create a taller image.
Note that bridesmaid’s dresses don’t necessarily need to exactly match the bride’s gown style, but they must not be too contradicting.
Your dress color is what catches people’s eyes first. Choosing colors, of course, is a matter of taste; but you should follow some general guidelines:
Matching Skin Tone: In general, people tend to choose the dress color to match their skin tone. A darker-skinned lady may prefer to wear a black dress. But on the other hand, a lighter-skinned lady might also go with the black dress which helps contrasting her skin. Remember that, what looks great on another person may not be your choice at all, and vice versa.
Matching Other People’s Dress Colors: For occasions like weddings, if you are one of the bridesmaids, then you must follow the group’s theme. The bride picks out a theme from a store, and registers the names of her bridesmaidsand and maid of honor. You will get your dress with the same theme (style and color), from that same store.
Formal dresses may be decorated with pearly beads, ribbons, and flowers, etc. Although many elaborate styles are beautiful, the simple ones can be very elegant.
Your dress size should fit tightly to show your beautiful curves, but not too tight to breathe.
