Ideas for choose a wedding dress to give the illusion of height

Bride wears fit and flare style white wedding gown Q – My fiancé is much taller than me – what dress style would you recommend for a shorter bride to give the illusion of height?

"Our recommendation for a shorter bride who wants to give the illusion of height is to opt for a sheath or a fit and flare style gown. We would advise against a ballgown or a fishtail as these styles can make you appear shorter, adding width rather than height."
