This elegant dress is one of our most fashionable wedding dresses, and it’s embellished with gorgeous beading for a true designer effect.

Your bosom and waist will be highlighted in the type of plus-size bridal gown shown above, and the full skirt will bypass your hips, belly and thighs, creating the ideal hourglass silhouette.

To slim your face, build volume into your hairstyle at the crown, and leave long layers around your neck and shoulders. A strong lipcolor that matches your skin tone will balance your features and draw the eye inwards, creating an optical illusion that narrows your face.

Stunning, fashionable wedding dresses, such as the striking design shown above, offer a touch of Art Deco elegance that is so timeless and sophisticated. This beautiful gown is the perfect complement to glittering drop earrings, and its careful tucking and pleating will streamline your torso to perfection.
To highlight your beauty on the big day, create a sexy, smoky-eye effect by layering black eyeliner, smoky charcoal and dove-grey eye shadows, and highlighting your brow bone with a drop of pearly highlighter. Then, accent your cheekbones and lips with a rosy hue. If you don’t have the makeup application skills to create a smoky eye look on your own, ask a local makeup artist to do the job for you or give you a tutorial. Many curvy celebs, such as J. Lo, rely on the sultry, smoky-eye look to make a splash at big events, such as the Academy Awards.

How to Plan a Disney-inspired Dream Wedding

Disney bridal dress

A dream is a wish your heart makes.- Cinderella
When it comes to planning theme weddings that truly evoke the romance, whimsy and charm of Disney’s most beloved animated films (such as Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella), selecting the right style elements, wedding decor ideas, bridal dress, and bridesmaids gowns will be very important.
In fact, Disneyland and Disneyworld will even allow you to marry right at their famous theme parks. Whether you visit one of the Magic Kingdoms to tie the knot (check their official amusement park websites for more information), or choose any other special wedding venue, our helpful quick guide will give you the inspiration that you need to create the ultimate Disney-style nuptials.
Since your wedding day is so special, don’t be afraid to indulge yourself with a touch of Disney magic. After all, you deserve to make your dreams come true on this romantic and meaningful special occasion.
How to Look Like a Disney Princess on Your Wedding Day
Princess Jasmine wedding dress
Looking like a Disney princess requires the perfect white wedding dress. Luckily, our Alfred Angelo Disney bridal gowns are custom-made to give you stunning Disney princess style. Each gown in this spectacular collection is inspired by a Disney heroine. So, pick your favorite Disney film and go from there. If you love the Little Mermaid, choose the Ariel gown. If you adore Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, choose the Aurora bridal gown to get her look on your wedding day.
Once you’ve selected your favorite Alfred Angelo Disney wedding gown, be sure to get the right hair and makeup look. The Disney princess look may feature long, flowing curls, headbands, or full, structured up-dos. One fun way to find the best look is to watch classic Disney animated films, such as Cinderella. Choose a special scene where the heroine looks especially wonderful, and then ask your hairdresser to re-create the look. Take digital photos to make sure you’re getting close to your Disney princess ideal.
Makeup should suit your coloring. Blond Disney princesses should stick with mauve and rosy pinks, while Snow White types should choose ruby lips and black mascara. Redheads should opt for juicy peach lip color or blush for the perfect, golden sunset glow. Darker, more exotic beauties in the Princess Jasmine vein should choose cinnamon or violet lip color for a rich, vibrant effect.
Since the eyes of Disney princesses are so prominent, you’ll need lots of eye liner on the top lashes, plus eye shadow and mascara, to get the look. This doe-eyed beauty will highlight your radiance and innocence as you walk down the aisle.
To add more charm to your wedding, dress your beloved bridesmaids in the Alfred Angelo Disney collection. These suprisingly cheap bridesmaid dresses will keep the theme coherent and add beauty to your wedding photos.
Wedding Decor for Disney-inspired Ceremonies and Receptions
Sleeping Beauty Wedding Dress
Disney heroines are often out in nature, surrounded by the lush beauty of forests and meadows. To create these bowers of bliss, choose wildflowers, pretty evergreen plants, and wedding centrepieces that have a natural, un-contrived look. If you’re marrying outdoors, use romantic trellises adorned with climbing wild roses, and scatter red rose petals along pathways. Satin ribbons may be used to decorate chairs and planters.
Make sure that any wedding invitations and wedding favours capture the same romantic, floral theme. Rosebud motifs and ribbon motifs are pure Disney, and they may be used on invitations, or as inspiration for wedding cake sugar flowers and borders.
Now that you know how to plan a Disney-inspired dream wedding, why not contact our Best for Bride wedding specialists today? Our team offers the most beautiful and affordable wedding gowns, as well as wedding cakes, wedding favors, wedding invitations, bridesmaid dresses, and mother of the bride dresses. In a nutshell, we have everything that you need to plan your entire Disney-themed nuptials, and we offer the most caring and professional service that you will find anywhere. Find us at our Ontario boutiques, or order via the World Wide Web through our online bridal store.

Sophia Tolli by Mon Cheri Wedding Gowns

wedding gown
Best for Bride is proud to introduce a new line of bridal gowns. These Sophia Tolli by Mon Cheri wedding dresses are feminine, flattering, and available at a range of attractive price points. If you’re planning a trip down the aisle, you’ll love learning more about these exquisite gowns and everything that they have to offer. Fine tailoring, luxurious fabrics, and lush, fashionable cuts characterize these exceptional dresses, which are favorites of brides-to-be all over the world.
Women who choose Sophia Tolli by Mon Cheri bridal dresses also treasure their gorgeous dresses long after their ceremonies, receptions and honeymoons are over. If you’re looking for a white wedding dress that evokes romance, sophistication, and sensuality, you’ll adore these elegant gowns…

About the Designer…

wedding dress
Sophia is an Aussie-born bridal gown designer of great renown, and she began her career working as a designer for Maggie Sottero. After honing her skills for over a decade, this talented seamstress moved on to open her own wedding gown design company, and the rest is history.
Today, Sophia is proud of her lovely bridal dress designs, which feature exceptional tailoring due to her years of skill working with needle, thread, fabric and embellishments. She prides herself on creating form-fitting gowns that highlight a woman’s curves to perfection, while also giving her a soft and sensual look.
Choosing a female designer for your own wedding gown is a great idea, as who could possibly understand a woman’s concerns and wishes more than another female? By selecting one of Sophia Tolli’s wedding dresses, you will be making a very wise investment in your own wedding-day self-confidence. When you choose one of these refined and stunning frocks, you’ll be perfectly dressed for one of the biggest days of your life.

The Sophia Tolli by Mon Cheri Collection

wedding dresses
If you’re into glamour, but prefer to embrace a traditional wedding-day silhouette, with a nipped-in waist, strapless bodice and full skirt, you’ll love the beautiful princess-style bridal dresses found in the Sophia Tolli Collection. Whether you opt for pure white or a subtle (and gorgeous!) profusion of metallic satins and creamy lace (as shown above), you’ll love the way you look and feel in your Sophia Tolli wedding dress.
As you can see, these dresses are beautifully crafted to accentuate your waist and bosom, while skimming over your hips and thighs. This universally-flattering look works for almost every woman, and it really fulfills the fairy tale ideal that most women dream of for their own wedding day.
When you select a gown from the collection, you won’t need to spend a fortune on accessories, as the gown’s lush lines will stand alone. However, you should feel free to accent your design with a veil and headpiece, high-heeled pumps or sandals, and a little sparkling Feri jewellry.
To make your whole look cohesive and pleasing, go for simple hair, such as a chic chignon or up-do, and then choose rosy mauve tones for your wedding-day makeup. Flushed cheeks, glossy lips, and shining hair will give you a healthy, glowing beauty that is the perfect complement to your ultra-feminine wedding gown. If mauve isn’t your color, consider warm, peachy-pink makeup that flatters your skin tone. Usually, cool pink and mauve will work well for paler, cool-complected women, whereas peach will be perfect for women with yellow undertones.

At Best for Bride, We Offer Expert Assistance with All of Your Wedding Planning

At Best for Bride, we are here to help with your bridal gown selection, and we are also ready to give you assistance with almost every other aspect of your wedding planning.

Gorgeous Bridal Gowns You’ll Love

wedding gown
At Best for Bride, we’re so proud of our exclusive bridal dresses, and we love sharing their beauty, workmanship, and fine tailoring with our blog followers. If you’re searching for a lovely gown to wear on your special day, you’ll adore these designs, which flatter a range of body types. Whether your body is curvy and lush, a typical hourglass, or a lean, elegant shape, we offer stunning wedding dresses that will do your natural beauty justice.
To offer you the inspiration that you need, we’re showcasing some special, fashionable wedding dresses that are as affordable as they are beautiful. To become the most beautiful bride you can be, choose the style you love the most, and then come and try it on at one of our Ontario wedding boutiques (find our bridal shops in Toronto, in Barrie, or in Mississauga). You may also order your favorite direct from our full-service online bridal store.

A Great Look for Curvy Ladies…

bridal dress
 When it comes to choosing the right wedding gown for a curvy figure, it’s important to embrace your shape, instead of trying to hide it. The right bridal dresses (or plus size wedding dresses) will streamline your curves just a little bit, holding everything in place without being too tight or constricting. At the same time, this sort of fitted design will show off your opulent shape in all of its voluptuous glory.
The beautiful lace wedding gown shown above features an ultra-flattering halter neckline that will give you a Hollywood bombshell quality. In addition, the gown’s supportive bodice will create a pleasing silhouette, without revealing too much. This dress also nips in at the waist to flatter you better. Crafted from lovely lace and sparking embellishments, this type of gown offers glamour that is totally flattering to curvier girls.
To get the look, put your hair up and treat yourself to some dramatic drop earrings, and then paint your lips in a vibrant jewel tone. Ladies with curvier bodies often have wider faces, and brighter lipstick in a complementary shade will create the illusion of a leaner face. Any lip color, from rose-pink to magenta to ruby red, will give you a shot of elegance that will dazzle your wedding guests…and your groom-to-be.

The Perfect Gown for a Classic Hourglass Shape

wedding gown
Women with medium builds often fall into the hourglass category, and they need perfect wedding dresses that highlight the waist, while skimming over the hips. When a gown balances your curves correctly, you’ll make the most of your great natural proportions.
The sexy wedding dress featured above is tailor-made for your body type, and it has a shimmering belt that really emphasizes the beauty of your traditionally feminine shape. The belt sits high on the waist, where you are likely to be thinnest, so it’s completely flattering. Fluid draping that is reminiscent of Greek goddesses and their classical gowns offers visual interest and a flowing, graceful quality.
This strapless bridal gown needs little adornment. Since it’s the perfect blend of modern, edgy style and traditional bridal gown elements, why not play up its sensual look by wearing your hair down and going for a natural, sun-kissed make up look? Add a rhinestone cuff, drop earrings, and high-heeled wedding shoes to accessorize this beautiful white wedding dress.

Sheer Elegance for the Leaner Figure

bridal dress
If you’ve got a lean build, there are so many options for your wedding gown. Any style, from simple slip dress to frothy confection, will work on your body type. However, you should avoid plunging necklines, as you may not have the curves required to hold these gowns in place on the big day. The show-stopping gown pictured above will play up the delicacy of your body, while giving you the fairytale romance that you crave. A fitted bodice creates a little touch of hourglass beauty, while rows of ruffles offer a sense of femininity that is just so much fun to wear.
Flatter your thinner face with wild curls or a full, volumized blowout. Dramatic lips, groomed eyebrows, and blush placed high on your cheekbones will coordinate with the elegance of this look. This gown needs dramatic hair and makeup to keep the look in balance. Accessorize with a fun choker necklace that spotlights your swanlike throat.
If you’re worried about the expense of buying one of our affordable gowns, we do offer a “rent wedding dress” service that will help even the most budget-conscious bride-to-be to wear the gown of her dreams…contact us today to find out more.

How to Use Color to Express Your Personality at Your Wedding


Every woman has her own distinct personality and style, and it often comes through in the colors that she chooses to wear.
If you’d like to express a touch of your personal style while planning your upcoming wedding, why not use your favorite palette as inspiration while you pick out flowers, centrepieces, wedding favours, wedding invitations, reception tablecloths and more?
Our Best for Bride team is standing by to help you choose just the right wedding decor ideas, and we have the designs that you need to make your fairytale wedding dreams come true…
Since you’re wearing white on the big day (at least, the odds are strongly in favor of you wearing white), express yourself with color by adding a personal touch to every other style element of your wedding.
From your groom-to-be’s bow-tie and cummerbund, to the color of your cheap bridesmaid dresses, you’ll adore the way shots of bright or muted color will add atmosphere and energy to your special day.
Here are some common color choices for wedding decor. Just choose your favorite tones and then begin to plan a cohesive look that is really you…

 Serene Blue…

If you adore blue and the serene, peaceful feelings that it brings, you’re not alone. Most people do choose blue as their favorite color, most likely because it evokes the timeless beauty of summer seas and summer skies…
To accent serene blue wedding accessories, consider complementary cool tones, such as dove-gray, charcoal, navy blue, or pure white.
Blue wedding flowers may not be the best choices, but other pastel blooms arranged in blue glass vases will look elegant, yet fresh, on your reception table. Your wedding bouquet might also feature delicate grosgrain ribbon trim in azure or palest aqua.
Match your decor to your skin tone so you’ll glow all through your ceremony and reception. A palette that sets off your coloring will be very flattering for photo backdrops as well.
If you have a cool skin tone, opt for pale blue or blue-grey; if you’re skin tone is warm, go for blue-green or periwinkle.
Blue is stunning, and it will also look fantastic on wedding invitations and wedding cakes. To add a ”something blue” to your white wedding dress, consider a blue silk sash that is narrow and designed to highlight your waist.
Many modern wedding gowns come with colored sashes in a range of hues, so brides-to-be may select their “best” color…if you have baby blues, your blue sash will make them “pop” on your wedding day.
Sunrise Orange…

If you love the glow of golden light, why not pay homage to the stunning coral and orange tones you see at sunrise? The beauty of these warm tones will add vibrant positive energy to any wedding ceremony, as long as they are used correctly.
To get the right look, choose orange accents that have a pink tone, rather than pumpkin-orange or hunter orange tones that look Halloween-esque or garish. Pinky coral tones and pale, golden orange will look beautiful, whether you use them as your palette for wedding flowers, wedding decorations or bridal jewelry.
For example, if sunset or sunrise tones are your favorite colors, why not choose gemstone Feri jewellry or delicate drop earrings adorned with golden topaz or yellow citrine? Adding a touch of color to your bridal look is a great idea, and these warm tones will make women with yellow undertones in their skin look more radiant when they are worn close to the face.
Ladies with pink undertones should probably choose a cool color palette for their bridal necklace, sash, or drop earrings.
Rich, Ruby Red…

Red is such a lush and beautiful color, and it may be used it so many stunning ways. For example, lush crimson, when combined with other rich jewel tones, such as cobalt blue and intense violet, gives a painterly effect that is artsy and sophisticated.
When red is used alone, or with paler pastel hues, it may have a romantic and delicate quality (imagine Valentine hearts, and go from there…).
How you use red is up to you…however, if it is your favorite color, you should definitely use this timeless symbol of romance and passion to express your personality at your wedding…
A lovely bouquet of red roses will be a logical choice; why not paint your lips a lovely ruby shade to match? Blot matte red lipstick with a tissue to dull the effect, so it isn’t too harsh. Then, apply a soft balm so you’re extra kissable. Add ruby drop earrings for the perfect finishing touch. Your wedding invitations and wedding decor may also feature vibrant touches of crimson, scarlet, and cerise…

Sometimes, with all of the joyful chaos of planning your nuptials, you may feel too busy to nurture yourself. By setting aside time for certain beauty rituals and making these little pleasures a habit, you’ll be your most beautiful and alluring as you walk down the aisle.
To help you get gorgeous before your wedding, Best for Bride has compiled a quick guide to some excellent skin care and hair care routines that will help you to look great in any of our fashionable wedding dresses. These tips and tricks are the product of years of experience; we are a closely-knit team of wedding experts, and we are proud to support our valued brides-to-be as they prepare to make important lifetime commitments with their partners.
Here are some things to think about as you prepare to dazzle your friends, family, and groom-to-be on your wedding day…
Skin Care

Three or four months before your big day, consider concentrating on your skin care routine. Starting early is the best way to get good results from skin care products, such as anti-aging serums, skin-brightening moisturizers, anti-acne potions, and soothing eye creams.
Most products take at least eight weeks to make a visible difference in your skin, so choose the right products for your skin type and then use them religiously. Trusted brands don’t have to cost a fortune. For example, Neutrogena makes an excellent anti-wrinkle cream that won’t bust your budget, and its retinol formula really does smooth out fine lines and reveal fresher, younger-looking skin.
If you enjoy getting facials from a trained beauty technician, plan to have at least one per month before your wedding. However, you should shy away from extractions or peels right before your ceremony and reception, as these types of facials may leave your skin temporarily reddened or inflamed.
Wearing sunscreen is very important, even you plan to sport a tanned, healthy glow at your wedding. It’s better to find a good bronzer to dust on your face on the big day; wear protection of at least SPF15 at all other times. Choose a product that protects you from UVA and UVB rays. Avoid products with parabens.
Keep your makeup minimal a couple of weeks before your wedding, to give your skin a chance to breathe as much as possible. Drink plenty of water – add a little fresh lemon juice, as this is known to benefit the skin. If you have problem skin, take flax-seed oil, zinc, and vitamins A, C and E. Don’t overdo it with supplements. Always follow the directions to the letter, and stop taking them if they don’t agree with you. You can always find theie vital oils, minerals and vitamins in food, if you prefer to avoid taking dietary supplements.
Hair Care

If you’re happy with your hair before you wedding, don’t change anything. It’s much better to keep the same length, style, cut and color so that you feel comfortable and “like yourself” as you marry. However, if you have problem hair, it may be time to tackle the issue in the months preceding your wedding. This is a good time to spend more on highlights, color, low-lights, conditioning treatments, cuts, and so on. It’s not necessarily a good time to get creative, but it’s a great time to put yourself in the hands of experienced, professional stylists and colorists who really know what they are doing.
Expertly cut hair will always look better than a budget ‘do. Ask your stylist to recommend the right products for you – usually, it’s better to stick with your natural texture (i.e. stop straightening and ironing your hair) during the weeks before your wedding, as it gives your tresses a chance to recover. Of course, you should wear your hair in whatever style that pleases you most on the big day.
Biotin is one supplement that is linked with thicker, shinier hair; vitamin E is also a good choice. If you don’t want to take supplements, you should be able to find products with these ingredients, such as biotin shampoos. If your hair is dry, condition with an olive oil treatment once a week. Warm the oil for 30 seconds in the microwave, apply to your hair, and then wash out five minutes later. This easy treatment is a wonderful way to tame fine, frizzy hair.

Sexy Wedding Gowns for Confident Brides-to-be

 
bridal dress
Some brides-to-be are modest and demure, while others are bold and daring. If you’re in the second category, you will likely be hunting for a bridal dress that really reflects who you are inside.
Brides-to-be who want something hip, body-conscious, and totally sexy may be influenced by celebrities who are very comfortable in their own skin; for example, pop sensations Shakira and Rihanna are perfect examples of strong, successful women who aren’t afraid to play up their attributes with stunning, occasionally revealing ensembles.

Shakira chooses sexy style for every occasion....
Sexy wedding gowns may be simple or extremely elaborate; one famous bride who went the “sexy, yet simple” route on her wedding day is supermodel Cindy Crawford, who wore a sweet and sensual, above-the-knee slip dress for her beach wedding to Rande Gerber.
Canadian songstress Celine Dion, whose wild, ultra-dramatic nuptial confection featured a plunging neckline that showed plenty of cleavage, opted for elaborate sexiness worthy of a great diva…
Sexy wedding dresses are designed to be worn with confidence, so they aren’t for everyone; however, when the right bride-to-be chooses the perfect sensual bridal gown, the effect can be truly dazzling.
For confident brides-to-be, we’ve compiled an exciting quick guide to some of the most stunning and sexy wedding gowns for this year. Bear in mind that you don’t need a pin-up perfect shape to “rock” these frocks…all you really need is your own sense of self…

If You’ve Got it…Flaunt It!

bridal gown
If you’re proud of your shape and you love body-conscious looks, you’ll adore a lacy, corseted wedding gown that highlights your womanly silhouette. A bustier design is an ideal way to add sexy style to any walk down the aisle, and these types of high-quality bustier wedding dresses will streamline your torso, while putting the spotlight on your stunning decoll√©tage.
If you’re not afraid of a little color on your wedding day, choose a gown with a pale corset and layers of filmy, pastel silk or tulle skirts. The buttercream hue shown above is unique, warm, sensual, and very sexy. This tone will look best on women with neutral or yellow-toned (warm) complexions.
Ladies with pink undertones (skin may be light or dark) will be flattered by corset-style gowns with icy pink design elements. For example, celebrity bride Gwen Stefani, who is porcelain-pale, chose a pure-white gown with bold, ombr√© pink shading along the bottom of the skirt…

Leggy Style for Bold Brides-to-be

Show off your stunning legs - and feel your absolute sexiest – with a show-stopping, short wedding gown. This type of design is so youthful and fresh; it’s fun, playful, and very sexy. These styles usually feature tulle or silken draping that falls from the lower back to the ankles; this gentle curtain of shimmery fabric adds traditional appeal, while still allowing brides-to-be the opportunity to show off toned or voluptuous gams.
High heels are a must; brides-to-be should also wear their hair down to maximize the glamorous charm of these perfect wedding dresses.
