The right dress can make all the difference on your big day. It doesn’t matter if you’re getting married in a chapel or at an outdoor garden party—the suitable gowns will look spectacular. If you’re looking for tips on how to style a wedding gown, this list has everything you need!

Avoid gowns with dragging hems.
Rings or trains can be beautiful, but they will drag on the ground and make you look like a child playing dress-up in a sandbox. If you want to wear a gown with a train, make sure it is long enough to walk without getting dirty or tangled up in your shoes.
Make sure the hemline of your gown is appropriate for your venue. If you’re getting married in a church or chapel with pews, avoid dresses that are too short or too revealing.
Don’t wear a tiara with a veil.
A tiara is for the ceremony, and a veil should be reserved for when you’re walking down the aisle. If you choose to wear one at all times, ensure it’s not too heavy because it will pull down your hair and make your veil look messy. You can always put a clip on your head if that happens!
Get a dress that fits you right.
As with any garment, it’s essential to ensure the dress fits you right. You’ll want to be able to move in it and feel comfortable in all areas of your body, including those hard-to-reach places where a bra might not sit quite right.
It’s also essential that the gown doesn’t make you look like a sausage (or tent). It should look like something someone would wear on their wedding day—not just some random thing they picked out at Target or wherever else they got their wedding dress from.
Try on several different styles of dresses from various designers before deciding which works best for YOU!
Choose the right shoes.
Choosing the right shoes for gowns is one of the most important things you can do to ensure it looks great.
- Choose shoes that match the dress. Many women don’t realise this, but if you wear a dark or navy blue dress and then go out in bright red heels, it will look like you’re wearing an alternative version of yourself. Check out photos online before committing to buying something specific, so there aren’t any surprises when it comes time to put them on!
- Choose comfortable shoes appropriate for the event and your body type (if applicable).

Pick your accessories wisely.
Once you have chosen your dress, it’s time to pick out some accessories. Accessories can make or break a look; they are often the first thing people notice about you. Make sure that your choices complement each other to create a cohesive ensemble.
If you’re wearing a long gown, avoid choosing heavy jewellery like chunky necklaces or pendants; add simple pieces like drop earrings or rings with stones (like garnets). If you’re wearing something shorter than ankle length, go for more statement pieces such as bracelets and bangles made out of silver or gold-plated metals instead of pearls which tend not only to look too large but also weigh down the illusion of height. Most people don’t know how much weight their arm would hold when carrying something heavy like this type of accessory!
