Let’s take a closer look at some dress styles…

The Mermaid

What it is This shape is defined by a slim, tapered, curve-hugging skirt that follows the line of the hips and thighs and flares out below the knee.

Best for Brides with hourglass figures who want to show off their curves.

What Are Your Favorite Features?

It’s easy to think of accentuating the obvious areas like the hips and waist. But what if your delicate collar bone is your favorite part of your décolletage? Then you should look for an open neckline on your wedding gown. Off-the-shoulder, strapless or boat neck styles or illusion back designs may offer you the look you are hoping for. On the other hand, if you feel your legs deserve to be in your wedding pictures in a pair of spectacular shoes, a shorter wedding dress should definitely be on your radar.

Honoring Your Skin Tone

Once you have narrowed down the dress style you need, we recommend trying it on in a variety of shades to discover which tone best accents your coloring. A soft ivory gown is much different than bright white. You need to determine which is better for you. Alternatively, a light color like pale blush or a bold shade like crimson may showcase your personality and your skin in the most favorable light. Don’t be afraid to try on lots of options.

NYB&G: Where “Camera” Is Not a Bad Word

Unlike the majority of bridal salons in the area, New York Bride & Groom welcomes cameras into your fitting room and to the salon. We encourage you to be completely secure in your gown choice by taking photos from every angle. Determining which shade of material makes your skin glow will help you look especially radiant in your photographs.

A-line Wedding Dress

An outstanding example of an A-line bridal gown is the stunning beauty below from Stella York, style 6144.
