Getting The Grooms Back In The Game

Bridesmaids Style Suggestions for the Pear Body Type

Bridesmaids Style Suggestions for the Pear Body Type

Body Type: Pear

Description:

  • Narrow Shoulders
  • Smaller breasts
  • Hips wider than Shoulders
  • Long Waist
  • Shorter, thick legs

Our Recommended Styles: 651, 653, 668, 655, 668

Why?

Pear-shaped women should try to bring more attention to the top half of their body to distract from their lower half. This simple trick makes your appearance more balanced and slimmer overall. These bridesmaids dress styles will drape a pear shape elegantly with a more relaxed fit and a floor-length gown will give the illusion of longer legs!

All styles are available in sizes 0-28. Visit LizFields.com to view all of our color and fabric options and find an authorized retailer near you!

 

Winter Wedding Ideas

Winter weddings tend to scare people away and they definitely are not as popular as Spring/Summer weddings.  However, a white wedding can be equally or even more romantic and fun as its warmer counterpart. Here are some of our favorite ideas for your winter wedding:

Idea #1:  Fur Stoles for the Bride and Bridesmaids

Fur stoles are an awesome accessory to keep you and your bridal party warm and look great in photos! If you’re looking for a gift to give your bridal party and you’re having a winter wedding, this could be the solution you’re looking for.  Don’t be afraid to give your wedding that Old Hollywood flare with some fur stoles!

Idea #2: Hot Cocoa Bar

Keep your guests warm and fuzzy by passing around hot cocoa or having a hot cocoa bar.  Not only will this be a hit at the wedding, but guests will be talking about this for a long time after! Hot Apple Cider could be another option for those who don’t love hot cocoa (but I can’t imagine anyone doesn’t) or if you want to have a lactose-free options for your family or guests.

Idea #3: White Flowers and Blue Lighting

White flowers tend to capture the softness of snow, and blue lighting really gives that cool winter feel to your wedding…and everything looks so elegant in that light, including your beautiful white or ivory dress! If you’re going to have a winter wedding, why not make it a winter wonderland!

Dress for your Body Type: Bridesmaids Dresses for the Apple Shape

Choosing the perfect wedding dress is hard, but choosing the perfect bridesmaids dress to compliment ALL of your bridesmaids can be equally difficult.

Women are all proportioned differently and finding THE ONE perfect dress that compliments all body types is stressful and can seem impossible…but it doesn’t have to be.  Follow the suggestions we outline in the next several posts for each body type and your bridesmaids dress search will be smooth sailing.

Keep in mind that in recent years, many brides have opted to choose different dresses for each bridesmaid to make the process much easier.  If you choose different styles, try to stick to one or two colors in the bridal party to keep everything looking uniform and complimentary.

In the next several posts, we will be covering the following Five Basic Body Types:

  • Apple
  • Pear
  • Hour Glass
  • Triangle
  • Rectangle

Today, we are discussing the APPLE BODY TYPE.

Liz Fields Bridesmaids Dresses for Apple Body Type

Bridesmaid Style Suggestions for the Apple Body Type

Body Type: Apple

Description:

  • Broad Shoulders
  • Little-to-no Definition in Waist
  • Average to Fuller Bust
  • Average to Longer Length Legs
  • Hips more Narrow than Bust

Our Recommended Styles: 656, 657, 663, 667, 669

Why?

The goal is to balance out the top half with the bottom half of your body. These dresses will create a more proportioned silhouette, while accentuating your shoulders from all angles and distract from the midsection.  Styles are available in both long and short…don’t be afraid to show off those legs!  That, too, is a perfect way to accent your assets.
