If you are like me and have a hard time deciding what to wear to important meeting at work, then the idea of finding a dress to wear for the biggest day of your life can seem a bit overwhelming!

This guide is to not only help you on your quest for a dress, but to make the most of your wedding dress by finding the perfect style for your unique body shape. Remember, there is no better feeling than finding the dress of your dreams, getting your hair and makeup done, and knowing you look GOOD! Except for marrying your honey... that one is hard to beat!




Apples
