3. Hourglass Brides

Forget hiding your hips in a ball gown and play to your strength.

You know, the type that hugs your upper body and flares just at the beginning of your hips, further pronouncing the hour-glass shape.

Your groom will literally have his heart pounding when you walk slowly down that aisle.
