Choosing a Wedding Dress or Gown


Do your research.

Before you even begin to look around, research gowns and dresses. You should always have a bit of knowledge about dresses. There are also many bridal magazines, Bridal Guide, websites, where you can find quick information without paying for the magazine.

Decide on a silhouette.
Wedding gowns and dresses are made in several different silhouettes. Before considering anything else, know which type of gown will flatter your figure the best. Look at photos of each type. You can browse wedding website message boards and member profiles for photos of real women wearing gowns, rather than relying on professional photos of models wearing them.

Envision your wedding.
Picture yourself on your wedding day. What are you wearing? What silhouette is your gown? What fabric? Is it embroidered or beaded? What color is it? With so many choices for the dress, it can be overwhelming to look through hundreds or thousands of them. Some brides have said that after looking through racks and racks of dresses, they all begin to look the same. Just write down a description of the gown you're envisioning. Example list: "princessy, satin, some shade of white but not pure white, spaghetti straps."

Consider the circumstances.
A wide variety of factors can affect what makes a particular dress appropriate to the occasion. What season are you planning your wedding. This will help you decide on the right material.

Decide on a budget.
Deciding on your budget, you don't need to set a very specific price. Just make it a general range, such as $1000 - $1500, or even $1000 - $2000. You can always break this rule later if you're able to and really want to, but it helps to have a general range. Some experts suggest devoting 10% of the overall wedding budget to the bride's attire.
