Hi Mandy

That would depend on what your body type is, but most girls are surprised as to what actually suits them, i hear all the time "i never thought i could wear this".

It is always best to start your shopping with an open mind and to at least try 1 of each style to see what you really like and what suits you the most.

If you would like to book an appointment to try some dress please call us on 92265611 or visit our website www.collezione.com.au and use our booking system.

Kind Regards

Hi Mandy,

I suggest you visit a Fine Retail Mori Lee bridal store in your capital city, & let them help you with what is best for you.   Please start to get ready at least 6 - 7 month before your wedding date..   Normal suppliers need between 14 - 16 weeks to make your dress.

Brides you have to go and tray wedding gowns sometimes what you think or like may not suit you body shape

I design and create each wedding gown to suit the bride and surprisingly some styles might suit unlikely figures. I focus on Body shape and proportions, and measurements rather than size.

If you go to an experienced designer and not a shop sales person they will help you and advise you in the best direction to design the perfect gown for your body type. A designer has the experience to know what will work best on your figure, what reflects who you are as a person and be able to advise you in what will be the best flattering and enhancing design for you on your wedding day.

Every bride's body is different so there isn't one style that will suit every one. Our best advise is go into your appointments with an open mind and be prepared to try on lots of different styles. Usually by the 3rd or 4th dress you start to work out what style suits you best. Don't go to a store that restricts how many you can try on. You should be allowed to try on lots of dresses as this is the best way to find your dream dress.

This depends on a few different elements. How tall or short are you? Do you have a pear shape figure, hourglass figure or something in between? There is not one style of gown that fits all, which is why at Empire Bridal, we have a selection of wedding gowns that cater to all different shapes and sizes. We take the time to discuss with you what look you are wanting to achieve and then give advice on which styles will not only fit in with your dream but what works for your figure as well. Our gowns can be ordered in up to a size 30 and most of our designs can be customised.
