Your ideal wedding dress has to feel beautiful and unique. There are a lot of weddings attires from princess dresses to trouser suits. There are also combinations with hats, veils, feathers, headdresses, and shoes, and each element adds up.
To help you to chose correctly, we give you some tips:
The goal is to create a hourglass figure.
When your body is shaped as pear or diamond, you need to enhance your shoulders with necklines like buttonhole collars also known as boat neck, drop shoulders and asymmetric lines. These kind of necklines are good for brides with a small breast too.
The Queen Anne neckline enhances shoulders too, but requires a long neck and stylized face.
Bodies shaped as rectangle have to enhance both the shoulders and the lower body to create the hourglass figure.
In the other hand, inverted triangle bodies should use V necklines; it can stylize the upper body and it is fine for big brides and for brides with short or wide neck.
A round neckline is good for this as well, especially if the bride has a big bust. Additionally, there is the heart neckline which should be worn with a wide skirt.
In same way, skirts must help creating an hourglass figure as well. Brides with hourglass bodies can wear skirts with the following cuts: mermaid, trumpet or straight, but brides with pear and diamond bodies should wear a straight or A cut that have to be loose on hips.
Brides with triangle and inverted rectangle shaped bodies should wear A cuts or pleated skirts to delineate their waist and give volume to their hips.
Take these tips and look radiant in your wedding day.!

Although, we must recognize that the most famous beaches of Lima are undoubtedly in south of city, we can not fail to mention one of the most emblematic beaches of Lima;Ancon, which has historical value and tourist potential. Few decades ago this beautiful beach was considered one of the most exclusive in South America. One can not fail to mention its historical value for all Peruvians, because it was where the famous treaty of Ancón was signed, which put end to the bloody war of the nineteenth century between Chile, Peru and Bolivia. If we go further back, we see that in pre-Columbian times different cultures have converged here, one of the most outstanding is the Chancay culture. So when you visit Ancón you must visit its museum. This area has several beaches with a calm sea as well as some with many waves.

The Ica Province in Peru has much to offer to the tourists looking for history, culture, nature, and adventure. Here are some of the places in Ica that you must visit.
These ancient geoglyphs are found in the Nazca Desert between the Nazca and Palpa populations, in Ica. These lines were traced by the Nazca culture; they form various shapes that can be as simple as lines and complex as zoomorphic, phytomorphic and geometric figures made on the land surface. In 1994, the Unesco Committee declared these lines as World Heritage. This colossal pre-hispanic art piece will bedazzle you.
It’s a beautiful historic place! The estate has restaurants, vines, and a wine factory; tourists describe the visit to this place as a lovely experience. For those who travel with kids, it is recommendable to spend the day in this place because there are games and entertainment shows for the little ones.
The Ica Dunes
There isn’t a more deserted landscape than the Ica Dunes. Dunes are sand mounds that move with the wind; they can be found in any sandy coasts, river shores, lakes or seas. The magic of these dunes is found on their constantly changing shapes and sizes, because of that, we can see dunes of less than 3 ft. or more than 330 ft.
These dunes are also the perfect place to practice sports such as sand boarding, sand skiing or a buggy trip through the Huacachina Dunes.
In the middle of the dunes, the Huacachina Oasis emerges; it originates around the lagoon of the same name. This natural lagoon of emerald colored water originated due to the emergence of underground streams. There is an abundant amount of vegetation made of palm trees, Huarango and Eucalyptus (introduced species) that allow migratory birds to rest. For all of this, Huacachina is one of the most colorful and beautiful places on the Peruvian coast. Rides through the lagoon are offered; it has wide lanes to wander and has a variety of restaurants in the surroundings.
Canyon of the Lost
The canyon is located 2 hours away from Ocucaje’s square. It is a short walk that goes between lakes, clay pyramids, and fossil deserts. This canyon is an impressive geological formation, created by the patient water flow through ravines seeking the ocean for millions of years. This place became an attraction for both scientists and tourists from all around the world. The beauty of its colors and the charm of the Canyon of the Lost, make this place a natural jewel.
Tambo Colorado, also known as Pucallacta or Pucahuasi. Is an old Inca settlement located in the Pisco River valley. This beautiful adobe building is considered the best Inca urban-administrative complex in Perú. Its name is a mixture of words: the Quechua word "Tampu" means resting place, and the word in Spanish "Colorado" was chosen because of the red, white and yellow paint used to decorate its walls. We also recommend visiting The Site Museum where archaeological pieces found in the area are shown.
