We could write a full guide on how to decide on a wedding dress alone, but for your sake here are some quick tips to consider when getting started. Do some research before going in, look online and in magazines to gather an idea of the style you want to aim for. Decide on a silhouette, these can range from ball gowns, to A-Lines and Sheaths. These styles all range in the way they’ll make you look, for example a ball gown looks good on any body type unless you have a shorter build, where A-lines are more fitten and less traditional. Perhaps the most important factor of the process is deciding on a budget. Some experts recommend devoting 10% of the total budget towards the bride’s attire. Go into the bridal shop with a generic budget you want to stick with, you can always break your budget if expenses allow.
