10 Tips on Finding the Perfect Pleated Dress for Weddings

10 Tips on Finding the Perfect Pleated Dress for Weddings

Pleated dresses are having a major moment as wedding guest attire. The feminine flair and fluid movement make them an ideal choice for almost any marriage celebration. But with so many pleated options, how do you find the perfect style? Follow these tips. In this article: 10 Tips on Finding the Perfect Pleated Dress 10 Tips on Finding the Perfect Pleated Dress 1.What's the Dress Code? First thing's first - identify the wedding's dress code. This will point you in the right direction material-wise. Formal or black-tie weddings call for luxe fabrics like satin, taffeta or silk chiffon. Cotton or linen pleats hit the right note for casual outdoor "I dos." 2.Look for Forgiving Pleats The most universally flattering pleated dress styles create a nipped-in effect at the natural waist before flowing out in a flattering A-line or fit-and-flare shape. Pleats placed vertically all-over also offer a wonderful draping effect. 3.Consider a Printed Pleated Dress While solids are always chic, a printed pleated dress adds an extra punch of personality. Just ensure the print matches the wedding vibe - think floral for garden affairs or graphic prints for modern celebrations. 4.Play with Layers Part of what makes pleats so on-trend is how beautifully they blend with other textured pieces. Try a pleated camisole dress peeking out from under a sheer pleated overlay. Or do the reverse with a sleek sheath topped by a pleated duster. 5.You Can Wear the Same Thing Twice! One major perk of selecting a great quality pleated dress is the versatility. Many stylish pleated options are 100% re-wearable for cocktail parties, date nights and other dressed-up occasions after their wedding debut. 6.Mother of the Bride or Groom Proud moms, pleated dresses make an elegant yet relaxed choice for your special day! Just avoid white or ivory hues that could upstage the bride. Rich jewel tones or florals look gorgeous. 7.You Don't Have to Wear a Dress While undeniably chic, pleated dresses aren't your only option. Consider pleated jumpsuits or trousers for a cool, modern alternative as a wedding guest outfit. 8.Pleated Dresses Can Be Great for Curvy Ladies Strategically-placed pleats offer a flattering, smoothing effect for curvier figures. Look for stretchy smocked or gathered waistbands and pair with the proper smoothing shapewear for a seamless drape. 9.Consider the Whole Look When slipping into your pleated dress, think about how all the elements - shoes, bag, jewelry, etc. - coordinate for a cohesive yet modern look. Keep the styling simple to let those pleats shine. 10.If In Doubt, Ask the Bride If you have any uncertainty around dress code, appropriateness or formality, don't hesitate to consult the bride before purchasing your pleated look. She'll appreciate you making an effort! No matter what upcoming weddings you have to attend, a gorgeous pleated dress is sure to make you feel effortlessly chic. With these tips, you can find a style that flatters your figure and fits the nuptial celebration perfectly.

What Dress to Wear to Wedding to Flatter a Tummy?

Sometimes I find that women who already have a gorgeous figure are still looking for dresses to hide their tummy. Children have tummies. But I understand that everyone wants to look perfect for a special occasion and some pregant women may want to draw less attention to their tummies. If you really want to cover your tummy and are having a hard time finding the right dress, here are some tips and dress styles that I hope will be a solution. Best Dress Styles that Flatter a Tummy: Empire Waist Dresses 1. Empire Waist Dresses Why Empire Waist is Flattering Empire waist dresses have a high waistline that usually hits just below the breasts or a little lower. This style is perfect for drawing attention away from the tummy and elongating your figure. Tips for Choosing Empire Waist Dresses An empire waist dress can also be frumpy. To avoid this, it is important to find the right fit. Find a dress that cinches in snugly just below the bust, but not too tight around the midsection. Consider an elastic waist for adjustability. Fabric is also key; opt for chiffon, jersey, or crepe that will drape nicely over you. 2. A-Line Dresses Benefits of the A-Line Silhouette An A-line dress is universally flattering and can help conceal a larger midsection. This silhouette does wonders in balancing out proportions and disguising any tummy concerns. How to Accessorize A-Line Dresses A statement belt can help define your shape, creating a flattering hourglass silhouette. Look for wider belts that cinch in at the smallest part of your waist. You can also draw attention upwards by a statement necklace or embellished collar. This can help shift the focus away from your midsection and highlight your beautiful features. 3. Wrap Dresses The Versatility of Wrap Dresses Wrap or faux-wrap dresses are incredibly versatile and can be adjusted to fit perfectly. The wrap or faux-wrap style creates a natural V-neckline, which is flattering for all body types,sizes and helps to elongate the torso. Best Wrap Dress Styles for Weddings For an upcoming wedding, choose a wrap dress in a luxurious fabric like silk or satin. Long sleeve maxi styles with subtle patterns or solid colours are also great as they provide more coverage and complement most complexion. 4. Peplum Dresses How Peplum Styles Conceal the Tummy Peplum dresses have an extra frill or layer of fabric around the waist, which can effectively minimize the waist and accentuate your hips. The point is to make sure the peplum top begins at the right waist region. Choosing the Right Peplum Dress for Formal Occasions Opt for a peplum dress in a rich color or with delicate lace details for a wedding. Keep the rest of your look simple to let the peplum be the focal point. The design is playful yet elegant in itself. 5. Shift Dresses The Simplicity and Charm of Shift Dresses Shift dresses are straight and loose-fitting, making them ideal for effortless vibe. Their simplicity makes them a versatile choice for various wedding settings. Perfect Shift Dress Materials and Cuts Select shift dresses made from structured fabrics like cotton blends or light wool. These materials hold their shape well and provide a clean, polished look. 6. Dresses with Ruching How Ruching Works Wonders for the Midsection Ruching is a fabric-gathering technique that can camouflage a tummy by creating texture and depth. It distracts the eye and smooths out the silhouette. Picking the Right Amount of Ruching Look for dresses with ruching along the sides or across the midsection. Avoid excessive ruching, which can add bulk instead of slimming. 7. Dresses with Patterns and Prints Utilizing Patterns to Distract and Flatter Patterns can be a great tool for minimizing the appearance of a tummy. Opt for prints that are evenly distributed and not too large. Best Prints for Minimizing the Tummy Area Florals, polka dots, and abstract prints are excellent choices. They create a visually busy look that can help to disguise problem areas. Additional Tips for Hiding the Tummy Shapewear: If you're not opposed to shape wear, try it. Shape wear offers support and smoothness, giving you a sleeker appearance. Clutch Bag: A clutch bag might not be the most practical for everyday use, but it's a lifesaver for special occasions like weddings photo shoots. Plus, strategically holding it can draw attention away from the tummy. Tuck in Your Tailbone: This one's a sneaky trick for photos. Just subtly tuck your tailbone in for a moment, and voila! It can make a noticeable difference in how your midsection looks.

If you're in the midst of summer wedding planning, finding bridesmaid dresses that make your favorite ladies with different body types look and feel absolutely amazing may not be easy.

The colours you choose for summer bridesmaid dresses set the overall tone and vibe for your wedding celebration. Lighter, more vibrant hues tend to work beautifully for warm-weather nuptials.

For a cheerful, high-energy look, turn up the brightness with coral, fuchsia, canary yellow, emerald, and turquoise bridesmaid dresses that practically radiate summer vibes.

Bridesmaid dresses with neutral colours are destined to be a huge hit in 2024. Grey in particular is a versatile neutral colour that can be used as a standalone or in combination with other colours. Grey bridesmaid dresses offer both classic and contemporary styling at the same time. Grey colour is stylish, dynamic, and very flexible. If your wedding falls in Autumn or Winter months, you can choose a tone of grey for your bridesmaid dresses, one that will blend with your proposed wedding colour theme. The venue for your wedding really doesn't matter when it comes to the use of grey for your bridesmaid dresses. Whether it is out on an open field, on the beach, in a glamorous ballroom or even in a vineyard, grey complements any indoor or outdoor wedding setting. Even if your intention is to have bridesmaid dresses that combine a couple of colours, you can do no wrong by having a neutral colour as one of the combined colours. In this case, grey is one colour that will really supplement any other colour, no matter how loud the other colour may be. You have the choice of a variety of grey tones to play with. From dark grey to blush grey, charcoal, and light grey, you can decide on the shade of grey for your bridesmaid dresses. All you have to do is to select that grey tone that will be best suited for your wedding theme. In this article: Grey is a Hot Trend: Feel Free to Shine Grey dresses are one really hot trend of late. For wedding colour schemes, many wedding planners are now recommending the use of grey in combination with other colours. Some common examples include: Grey and Blush: This colour combination for a wedding theme is just great. The bridesmaid dresses can come as a sleeveless all grey dress while they wear a blush (a shade of pink) silk belt or hold up a bouquet of blush synthetic flowers. Grey and Green: Another colour match-up that comes as earthy, breezy and cool. You can have grey bridesmaid dresses with a hint of green. The accessories of your bridesmaids like their purse and shoes may come in a shade of green. Grey and Lavender: The colour scheme for your wedding can be a combination of grey and lavender. From your little bridesmaid and bridesmaid dresses to your wedding invitation card and even wedding cake. These two colours go well with each other. Grey and Navy Blue: With a grey and navy blue, you have a neutral colour and secondary colour combining to give a really mature and sophisticated look to your wedding theme. Your bridesmaid dresses can also combine these two colours perfectly to brighten up your wedding. Grey and Orange: Orange is a bright and daring colour. However, combining with a neutral colour like grey has the effect of toning down the colour (orange). Your bridesmaid dresses can be all grey while the bouquet of flowers can have shades of orange.
