Keep an open mind when it comes to shape. Try on many different types of gown - you never know how they'll fit until you take them off the hanger.
Pick the right undergarments. Many bridal salons recommend choosing pieces that closely match your skin tone, and there are many varieties of body-shaping products that will perfect your silhouette no matter how slinky the gown.
Think about wearing fun footwear. Getting married in the middle of July? Consider sporting flip-flops under your gown. If you're all cowgirl, try a pair of boots. And for a slope-side winter wedding, you've got the perfect opportunity to don a pair of furry white snow boots.
Let your personality show through your accessories. Give a traditional gown a fun twist with a colorful sash or large, flashy earrings, or keep your style poised and polished with a simple pearl necklace and earrings.
