Wearing a wedding dress was probably one of the first things you dreamt of when you were a little girl. Now that the big day is coming, we’d like to help you chose a gorgeous dress, one that meets your taste and makes you feel like a princess.
First, you should set a budget. Cheap wedding dresses can be found off-the-rack for $250 and up. You can have a simple custom-made dress for as little as $750, and as high as $10,000 for a Vera Wang, with many dresses in the lower third of this range.
Secondly, keep in mind that finding the perfect wedding dress may take you some time, even months. Don’t put off your decision for too long. Start by browsing magazines and cutting out the pictures of those dresses you like the most. The style you choose should be appropriate to the ceremony. If you have a formal evening wedding, an elegant choice is a floor-length dress in ivory, white, cream, or champagne, often worn with gloves and a train.
If it’s a less formal or second wedding, you may go for a long or short dress, or even a two-piece suit. A short veil may be very stylish paired with a classic pillbox hat. Be sure to pick a dress that suits your figure and enhances your natural beauty. Ask for suggestions and opinions from people you can trust, like a sister or a friend.
Try every shape: princess, ball gown, sheath, and empire waist–to see which flatters you most. Make sure you can move comfortably with the dress on. Remember you’ll have to walk with it, turn, sit and bend, as well as lift your arms and hug loved ones without splitting a seam.
Try on a few designer gowns first so you recognize the quality, then choose a dress based on your budget. Finally, budget for alterations. These can run $300 or more. Make sure that pressing is included and ask them if they’ll store your dress until the big day.
