    As we all know, weddings come with many traditions such as brides have to wear gowns that were made to skim the floor or trail down the aisle.  However, some rules can be broken, especially if you consider yourself as more of an unconventional bride.  Instead of choosing this style, you want to go for new and innovative designs such as wearing a short winter wedding dress.  This is one of the boldest and chicest things you can do.  The traditional wedding dress has been given a contemporary spin this year and we predict that this trend will be very popular in 2020.  Do scroll down to find out some style tips on how to wear a short wedding dress.

    How To Choose the Right Short Wedding Dress 

    This tip is the same as when you pick out other garments.  When you choose a short or mini wedding dress, make sure that it matches with your figure.  Thus, short dresses are perfect for women who have:-

    • A delicate figure with medium height

    • An energetic and active character, so that she will be freely moving all day long

    For slim women, voluminous and flaring shapes, complete with multi-layered textures and fluttery details are great. For brides who are curvaceous, picking pieces with a sassy décolleté may be quite beneficial.  You can also check out some plus size wedding dresses that have shorter length.

    The Different Types of Short Wedding Dresses 

    There are many different types of short wedding dresses that you can consider.   They are bold mini options to slightly below the knee variants, as well as knee-length or slightly above the knee types. The most important thing is that you need to take time to choose wisely. This will offer you the opportunity to pick between the styles, choosing the style you like and feel comfortable with.

    Pregnant brides may pick an empire type wedding dress as this will nicely conceal the belly and focus everyone’s attention on your décolleté and legs.

    Tea Length Wedding Dresses

    Tea-length dresses are in between the mini and maxi lengths.  They present a totally different type of chic and glam. Most of the dresses belong to the flare category and often also have a 50’s retro feel.  Some of the characteristics of tea-length dresses are nipped waists and fitted bodices.

    Mini Wedding Dresses

    Mini wedding dresses are the bolder and shorter alternatives.  These dresses come in full and flare silhouettes, body-con options, and many more. This dress style is best for brides with beautiful legs.   Choosing simple and classic jewelry and accessories for styling these types of looks is the best.

    Short Wedding Dresses with Sleeves

    Short wedding dresses with sleeves are stylish and trendy.  Besides being elegant and chic, this style gives the bride an opportunity to accentuate her girly and charming vibes. Thus, short and often lace-made sleeves create the best effect possible. Such dresses are the most suitable way of feeling comfortable and looking bedazzling at the same time.

  5. Affordable Maternity Wedding Dresses For Comfort and Style

    September 5, 2019 by barbara

    Planning a wedding and a baby? Congratulations! There is nothing better than a double celebration.  There is something special about a wedding which includes the youngest member of the family.  One thing that comes to mind is just how to choose a comfortable and stylish maternity wedding dress.

    If you are on a hunt for a maternity wedding dress, there are a few things to consider.

    Belly growth and style

    Obviously, the most important aspect to focus on is the stage of your belly growth on your wedding day. However, there are no particular rules when it comes to maternity wedding dresses. It all boils down to what makes you comfortable!  It goes without saying that a corset is out of the question, as are any other super-restrictive silhouettes, structured bodices, and tight waistlines.  Choose dresses that make easy movement, climate-appropriate fabrics, and room for growth spurts. Look for A-line shapes, empire waists and light fabrics like tulle or chiffon which may skim nicely over your bump.

    This long sleeve chiffon wedding dress is elegant and super flattering.  It is the perfect example of a dress which is simple and versatile, but not boring. It is an ideal dress for fall or winter gown, or even for a chilly spring morning wedding.

    Dress length

    A large bump will create a shortened hemline at the front of the dress.  Therefore choose an extra-long gown if you want a floor-length look.  The same rules apply for cocktail-length dresses too.   Your feet may be swollen during pregnancy so a floor-length dress is the best.

    The shape of this dress is incredibly flattering for baby bumps of all stages and sizes.  It exudes a fairy-tale boho vibe.

    There is something timeless and stylish about this long sleeve V-neck lace dress.

    All the above stunning dresses are from Cocosbride.com, an expert in wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses. Though its maternity wedding dress collection may be small, it is the place to head for fashion-forward designs that are highly affordable.

    Hosting a wedding while pregnant is certainly a unique event.  See a style that catches your eye? Now is the time to grab it.


  6. The Best Wedding Gown Style For Pear Shaped Women

    September 4, 2019 by barbara

    The term “pear-shaped” comes from the shape of an actual pear.  The top portion of the fruit is smaller than the bottom portion and when it is describing the human body, pear-shaped women’s upper body is usually quite petite and they have larger hips, thighs and bottoms.   A bride with pear shape body may have different sizes which means that their bust, hips and possibly even waist, are all different sizes.  At times, this makes it difficult to find clothing that fits well in all the right places.  Purchasing jeans are the best example because you have to purchase jeans that fit the largest area, your bottom half, but this leaves you with a gap at your waist. If this is what you have been encountering, congratulations, you have the perfect pear-shaped body.

    Majority of women had always envisioned what their dream wedding dress would look like, for example, a fairy-tale-like princess wedding dress or a sexy mermaid bridal gown for the modern brides. But, have you thought about how these dresses could fit your body shape? When shopping for a gown, there are a couple of things that a Pear Shaped Bride might want to keep in mind.  Choose a gown with details around the neckline or chest.  This will draw attention to your upper body.  Ball gown wedding dresses and empire cuts are also great choices.

    This Lace-up Applique Tulle Ball Gown from Cocosbride is simply breathtaking and gorgeous. This dress flows smoothly down which balances out your proportions. It neatly shows off your waist and skim effortlessly over your hips, the widest part of the body.

    Another tip is to balance your shape, do consider a gown with wider straps, cap sleeves, bolero, or a fuller skirt. This will emphasize your small waist and create an hourglass silhouette.

    An off-the-shoulder neckline in A-line silhouette is flattering to this type of body shape. The neckline broadens your shoulder but as the skirt flares from the waistline, it gives you a proportionate shape. A hugging dress with front slit is a great option too.

    Ready to find your perfect fit?  Hurry and check out the above ball gown wedding dresses from Cocosbride.com. As one of the largest and most affordable bridal retailer, Cocosbride is passionate about their business and their core principals of quality, choice and service.

  8. Top Wedding Dress Silhouette

    September 3, 2019 by barbara

    Choosing a wedding dress is an exciting process, but it can also be a stressful one. Between the many endless lists of options and the confusing terminology, picking the perfect gown can seem almost impossible.  One of the questions that you would keep playing in your mind is what type of wedding dress silhouette you would like to wear?  Upon first thought, you may think wedding dress styles are all pretty standard.  In actual fact, wedding dresses get way more detailed and specific than just that.  Most wedding dresses have their unique silhouettes and the more popular ones are the A-Line Wedding dresses.

    Wedding dresses of this style are highly popular because they can flatter almost all body shapes. They are fitted to the waist and gradually become wider toward the bottom, like the shape of an ‘A’. This silhouette naturally highlights the bust while slimming the waist and skimming over hips. Therefore, it makes a lovely option for many ladies, especially ladies with pear bodies. Due to their classic and chic style, A-line dresses can easily be partnered with different necklines, waistlines, and fabrics to showcase your best features.  Not only can it be paired with different types of necklines, but many different fabrics can also be used to construct the skirt. An A-line dress can feature any length of the train.

    You can find a huge range of A-line wedding dress in many different fabrics, including lace, silk, organza, and more at Cocosbride.com, a global wedding dress retailer that has been providing professional service to bridal designers and shoppers all over the world for more than 10 years.

    The A-line is a halfway point between sheath and ball gown silhouettes. A-line skirt flares out from the waist more than you would see on a sheath gown, but not as dramatically as the ball gown. This universally-flattering silhouette is ideal for all wedding themes, whether your wedding is bohemian, classic, beachy, or something in between. A-line wedding dresses often feature organza, lace, or tulle — like this romantic sleeveless gown.
