When choosing a wedding dress you definitely want to make sure that you choose the right style for your body. If you're a shorter bride stay away from mermaid or too full ball gowns, both of them tend to make you look shorter, A line will always look the best. If you're tall anything goes, if you're a little bit skinny stay away from strapless they make you look even skinnier. And if you're wider, make sure that it's something flattering, if you love your waist show that off and maybe hide the problem areas. Choosing a flattering wedding dress is just like choosing clothing in real life, just much fancier and white.
