The gown is comprised of both the skirt and the bodice; with the skirt waist, down and the bodice waist up, (not considering the sleeves). When it comes to sleeves, you can consider the following cuts:

When it comes to the sleeves, we suggest that you incorporate whatever it is that you feel comfortable into your wedding gown. In fact, not just for the sleeves, but anything on your wedding attire – do note that any discomfort that you will feel does show, particularly in the photographs. You don’t want to have to be worrying about your wedding dress and its fitting; wouldn’t you rather be glowing in the joy of the moment instead?
Speaking of glow and joy, an enthralling aspect is the various skirt styles, and depending on your personal preference, this can be chosen amongst the following types:
A-Line Cut – this is where the skirt cuts gradually from the waist in a triangular manner to create an A-shape line down to the floor. Based on this, you’ve got two other styles that are more extravagant, known as the below two.
Princess Cut – initially cutting vertically from the bodice and blooming into a wider flare from the waist to give the princess image that we’re all familiar with.
Ball-Gown – layers of skirt that swoops from the waist into a full skirt and usually has a trim bodice, and considered the be more extravagant and heavy as opposed to the A-line and Princess cut styles.
Mermaid Style – Commonly seen and known for the fitted cut from the waist and down, and then flaring out closer to the knees into a wider skirt for a complete hourglass and romantic look.
Column style – This fashion style is one that is a dress that comprises of a complete snug cut from the shoulder and bodice all the way down to the floor to provide a classy and elegant look.
Hence, the sleeves and the style of the skirt are check. Next, the trail. Some individuals prefer no trail, however the romance of it as you glide down is truly enchanting – you can always opt for a short and sophisticated trail length or one that is a longer expanse of elegance.
And the finishing touch? The veil; to complete the total appearance and make you the stunning bride that you have dreamed being since planning this wedding from day 1. The veil is what truly completes the whole appearance and creates the transformation from pure beautiful to pure enchantment. The moment you add on the veil; that’s the moment when the emotions rise, and you know you’re ready. When considering the veil, you need to consider three categories:
• Where the wedding is going to take place: indoors or outdoors? Accordingly, you can decide on the length of the veil so that it can adjust to either concerns of the wind or the aisle inside a church.
• What sort of hairstyle are you planning to settle on? One that is kept up in an intricate twist or braided bun for example shouldn’t have the veil take away from the element of the beauty of your hairdo. Alternatively, keeping your hair down and in a simple manner means that accordingly your veil can add on as your headpiece.
• Note that your wedding gown is the main element of your entire figure, and the veil shouldn’t take away from that or overpower the beauty of your wedding gown; it should only enhance it. Depending on the material and style of your wedding gown, find a veil that will appropriately complement.
