Almost every little girl at some point dreams of being a princess, and the only time they can come close to fulfilling that dream is on their wedding day, the day on which ball gowns and princesses go hand in hand, so it’s only natural that many consider the dream come true on her special day.
If you’re a bride-to-be that’s taking friends and relatives along to fittings who are very opinionated about what you should wear, you may end up more than a little confused, questioning your initial decision to wear a ball gown at all.
What you need to do then is to keep front and centre the fact that it’s your wedding dress that’ll be immortalised in your wedding album and videos, which is why you should stick to your guns and politely tell everyone else to keep their opinions to themselves.
Here are 4 more reasons stick to your decision of wearing a ball gown:
When will you get the chance to be a princess in a ball gown again?
Ball gowns are stunning and dramatic, words that are evocative enough to ensure that you do feel like a queen or princess on your wedding day, but how often do you get to wear a ball gown aside from this precious day? There will be many other occasions to wear a white sheath or A-line dress, but not many that’ll allow you to go full-on ball gown.
Ball gowns can flatter almost any body shape
Ball gowns can be fitted to make sure that they can suit almost any type of body shape, flattering where it should and underplaying where it needs to.
If you’re a curvy, voluptuous bride, opt for a full skirt and fitted bodice that puts emphasis on your bust and waist. Taller women get a statuesque, graceful effect by accentuating their height with a floor-skimming hemline. If you’re petite, make sure you select a curve-enhancing neckline.
You’ll have more options when it comes to bridesmaids outfits
In general, bridesmaids would wear a slightly less formal dress than the bride does, for obvious reasons, but if you wear an A-line or sheath dress, the options become a little more limited in terms of allowing your bridesmaids to complement what you’re wearing. When you decide to wear a ball gown, floor length bridesmaid dresses set the scene alight beside you in your romantic, dramatic dress!
