At Icon Bridal we help all of our brides feel flawless on their wedding day with perfect off the shoulder dresses!
These classy wedding dresses never go out of style and are great for your big day but they can be a bit tricky to pull off. Properly accessorising and styling these wedding dresses to look perfect is the key.
Try It Out Before Buying
Off-shoulder wedding dresses have a gorgeous neckline that unfortunately does not complement every body shape. Things become trickier if you have a big bust. So, try it on to ensure that it fits your curves just right and flatters your body shape.
Choosing the Correct Underwear
Off-shoulder wedding dresses have to be worn with a strapless bra underneath. No matter how fancy your regular bra is with straps, pearls, sequins and all, it will simply not work when paired with a beautiful off-shoulder dress. While trying out the dress, ensure that the bra does not show in the back. It is one fashion mistake that will destroy the entire look!
Say No to Covering
Say a big fat NO to layers upon layers! The whole point of an off-shoulder wedding dress is to show off your shoulders so there is no reason why the bride will want to cover it up! This type of wedding dress is particularly in trend during summer and spring and can be paired with a simple over the shoulder shawl.
Simple accessories compliment off-shoulder wedding dresses wonderfully. Necklaces are off the table as they would meddle with the beautiful neckline of the dress. But, if you really fancy a necklace, go for a choker which lies close to the neck without interfering with the dress.
If your wedding dress is adorned by sequins, opt for smaller accessories so as not to overdo the look. If your wedding dress is simple, you can choose a pair of pendant earrings, particularly if your hair is styled in a bun.
Wear rings and bracelets but refrain from exaggerating. One elegant bracelet will be more than enough. Our wedding shop will help you with more tips and trick to get the most beautiful look.
Go For The Right Hairstyle!
Any hairdo will compliment your off-shoulder wedding dress! Go for a tight chignon for an elegant and sophisticated look or experiment with a soft bun to add a sweet-subtle touch.
Follow these simple fashion tips and you will certainly rock this trend elegantly on your wedding day. Remember, whilst it’s a wonderful, timeless look, you can’t force it – if it doesn’t suit you, leave it be and try something else. Some of the greatest looks come after brides discover their first choice just doesn’t suit them.
