Wedding dress

Wedding dress shopping guide for every" bride to be"

At a young age I really wanted to get married.The little me never knew anything about marriage but the fact that I would wear a beautiful white gown looking like a princess fascinated me .The cake too was among the preferences of why I needed to have a wedding, but as I grew older that didnt matter.

As I grew older I realized that a white gown symbolizes purity or innocence.Who wouldn't want to be seen in such ? I am still fascinated about wedding gowns and hopefully one day I will have a chance to walk down the aisle in one.

Its every girl's dream to be in a wedding gown and say I do.I as one of them would like to share with you what I know and have learnt from having a peak and an interest in wedding gowns.

Gowns vary from the type of silhouette, skirt style,bodice and neckline shape .To make it easier to know this we can start from knowing our body shapes and which dress suits us.
