Beauty come is all shapes and sizes. Every bride should look like a queen on her wedding day and her gown shopping experience at bridal shops in Sacramento should reinforce the concept we can find in Meghan Trainor’s song lyric, “Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top.” Brides-to-be should embrace their curves with gowns that flatter their shape instead of trying to conceal it. The expert bridal consultants at Sacramento bridal shops can help full-figured women select the ideal dress for a flattering silhouette.

Traditional ball gowns are flattering on a curvy bride. They are timeless and classic and sure to elicit oohs and aahs when the bride makes her grand appearance. Ball gowns with wider straps or off-the-shoulder cap sleeves, like the ones shown here, will keep the gown securely in place as the new bride dances the night away. Crystal beading, lace, organza, or chiffon…all the time-honored details, appliqués, and fabrics…will all enhance the bride’s natural beauty.

A-line dresses provide a sense of elegance and sophisticated grace and are ideal for curvy brides. Brides should look for gowns with larger cup sizes to ensure an impeccable fit and smooth line, whether she chooses a sweetheart neckline or a sexy, strapless dress. The unique details of the gown, such as frosted embroidery, lace appliqués, and fabulous beading, will allow the bride to show off her personal style.

Fit-and-flare dresses are sleek and modern, and curvy brides shouldn’t shy away from them. The curve-hugging bodice is slimming. Many fit-and-flare bridal gowns come with an inner corset that smoothes the overall silhouette. Others, such as these, have strategic pleating and ruching that provide a slimming appearance.

For curvy brides shopping for wedding gowns in Sacramento, the choices are as unique as each bride.
