At WED2B we know our brides come in all shapes and sizes. So if you’re lucky enough to be a little taller than average here are our top tips to help you find a wedding dress style to suit both your look and your stature.
Balance your figure
Choose wedding dresses that create shape where it’s most flattering. Elegant mermaid styles with princess seams are great for those blessed with height as they define the waist and skim the hips falling perfectly to the floor.
Draw the eye up the body
Detailing on the bodice such as glittering beads and embroidery, will draw people’s eyes up and away from the length of the dress.
Layer up with Amixi accessories
Show off perfect pins
Make the most of those long legs, perhaps with a tea-length gown in a pretty vintage style!
Tiers of joy
Tiered dresses look gorgeous on tall women, providing extra shape and depth to your bridal outfit – ruffles, ruching, feathers and frills all work beautifully!
Not one but two tones
Tall brides can work a two-tone wedding dress brilliantly! So match a classic wedding tone with a touch of colour to coordinate with your bridesmaids, groom or wedding theme.
Grecian-style wedding gowns look gorgeous when long and flowing. So try teaming one with pretty sandals for a summer wedding and leave your hair loose.
