How to Choose a Wedding Dress Which Shows Off Your Best Bits

It's not easy choosing a gown which is all about making you the centre of attention. Whether you prefer a more relaxed, laid back style or are ready to go big with a true showstopper, it's not everyday you buy a dress with is so unapologetically all about taking centre stage.

One great way to make the gown-picking experience a little easier is to start with your favourite features. Are you proud of your hourglass figure? Do you want to show off your collarbones? Perhaps your décolletage is your favourite personal asset? This lovely guide from Style Me Pretty is all about choosing a dress which will make the absolute most of your figure and show off what your mama gave you!
