Petite women are quite easy to spot and to identify. If you are too short, kind of like a little version of you, then you are a petite woman. They usually have short upper bodies and short legs too. In order to know what wedding dress to pick, you need to remember that fashion rules also apply to wedding dresses. By that we mean that you should really, really avoid short wedding dresses, get them long. This is because skirts cut your legs in half, which makes you look even shorter. Here´s a nice example of what we mean:
Tall women is usually recognized as a type of body shape by itself, despite the fact there can be combinations like tall and pear shaped or tall narrow waist, etc. However, if you aren´t just tall but are actually a tall body shaped woman, you can know it because the upper part of your body is short, but your legs are quite long. Their hips aren´t usually wide and their shoulders are proportionate. Being tall usually means not having a narrow waist, so that´s another way to identify this kind of bodies. Pick dresses with a push up effect on your breasts and those which are not complete, look for one that ends at the knees.
Pear shaped bodies can be very tricky. This kind of women usually have small breasts and narrow shoulders which creates the effect of their lower part of their bodies to be much wider, even when they are not. Corsets are absolutely out of the question for you, because they can severely accentuate your wider hips by reducing your waist even more. It is actually a matter of having narrow shoulders, a tiny waist and big hips. Look for wedding dresses with a push up effect to create a larger breast effect and a long dress to even your hips and waist out with your shoulders.
Okay, this kind of bodies are quite tricky. If your waist almost don´t exist, but your hips and chest are not wide but of the length, then you have a ruler kind of body. Also, this kind of body shape usually gets accompanied by small breasts and proportionate hips. You can still look very well on your wedding dress, just avoid showing too much skin and try to get a corset which can lift your breasts up to create an hourglass body shape effect. Tell whoever is helping you pick your wedding dress that this is what you´d like and you should be done before you know it.
If you have a wide waist, but the rest of your body is not rounded, then you have a wide waist body shape. If you do, then try to get a wedding dress with a corset so that you can narrow your waist a bit. However, do not exaggerate it, you only need to narrow it a little bit. By letting whoever is showing you the dresses know what you want and what kind of wedding dress you want and what body type you have you can avoid a lot of stress by not knowing what to get. Here´s what wide waist bodies look like:
If you have a very narrow waist body, then you have to consider a few things for your wedding dress. Basically just avoid corsets, as they can look your waist look way too fragile and impossibly narrow. There is a huge difference between pear shaped bodies and narrow waists. When you have a very narrow waist body you know it because your shoulders are not incredibly narrow and your hips are not too wide, only your waist is really, really small. If you determine you have this kind of body shape, then you can get the right wedding dress for you in no time.

Have you ever wondered why is it you get a wedding ring when you get married, but not a wedding necklace or a wedding toasting machine or a wedding car? Well, it has everything to do with the famous circle of love. When you give a necklace, and you put it on, the only thing you “form” with that movement is a line. But, when you put the ring with your right hand into your love one´s left hand and vice versa, you actually form a circle, which means your love had no beginning and it will have no ending.
Did you know that there are a lot of superstitions surrounding the wedding ring you choose and who it fits you? For example, some cultures believe that if your ring is too lose, then you are not fully committed with your partner, nor your marriage, and you´re likely to divorce. If it is too tight, then you are probably marring someone quite jealous and probably a control freak. If the wedding ring is way too flexible (like with pure gold, 24 carats), then you are “inviting” other people into your marriage (yes, they meant infidelities). Whether true or not, better find a ring that suits you perfectly.
