Style & Trends. Wedding dress style is a truly personal decision - the very best advice is to follow your heart, just like you did when you found your husband-to-be! That being said, every girl likes to know what's in style and on trend and also wedding dress styles are timeless classics.
For 2013, hot trends in wedding dress styles include lots and lots of lace, illusion necklines, straps and sleeves, and bold color (red wedding dresses are totally on trend).
As for the timeless, a bride can't go wrong with a princess-worthy ball gown (full skirt, fitted bodice, natural waist), a sophisticated mermaid (fitted through the bodice and hips, flaring out into a full mermaid skirt), or a classic A-line (fitted bodice with a slight flare from the waist to hem).

To Veil or Not To Veil? There was a time that the bridal veil was a given, but today it's as personal decision as what wedding dress style to wear. Lots of brides today are wearing a veil for the ceremony, and then swapping it out for a glittering hairpiece for the reception. No matter what type of headpiece and veil you think you might like, pick your dress first -- after you know the design and style of your dress, picking a headpiece and/or veil becomes much easier.
The Dreaded B Word -- Budget. Everyone has a budget (well, most of us!) and it's important to know what your budget allows before you shop. That being said, don't think you have to compromise on your dream dress because of price – BestBridalPrices offers gorgeous first-quality authentic designer wedding dresses of all styles in every price range, and you can even sort your search on our site by price to ensure you're looking at dresses that will work for you.
Fit Vs. Size. It's good to know from the very start wedding dress sizing is different from everyday ready-to-wear clothing - so don't be concerned if your bridal gown size is a different number from what you usually wear! There's a big difference between "size" and "fit" - size is just a number, and fit is the style, cut and silhouette as it relates to your body. So forget the number and simply enjoy the process of finding the fit that will be the most beautiful on you for your big day!
Think curvy brides can't look as fabulous in a wedding dress as their less-curvy counterparts? Think again! The trick for any bride is to look for a wedding dress that emphasizes the positive - for plus size brides, this might mean accentuating a curvy hourglass figure, finding a waistline that fits your narrowest part or focusing on a neckline that both flatters and provides the coverage you need! As a rule, plus size brides look great in A-line wedding dresses, wedding dresses with strategic ruching, and/or wedding dresses with v-neck or sweetheart necklines. Also look for designers who make plus size wedding dress lines, like Alfred Angelo and Bonny.
