Style & Trends.Wedding dress style is such a 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.
Right now, hot trends in wedding dress styles include off-the-shoulder necklines (like the chic Allure 9000), tulle skirts (the elegant WTOO 17732) and subtle hints of color (blush, mint and tangerine just to name a few).
As for the timeless, a bride can't go wrong with a princess-worthy ball gown like 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). If you're looking for something a little more vintage, you may want to consider a lace cap-sleeved Maggie Sottero, perfect for the modern romantic.

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.com offers gorgeous 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! The bottom line is, 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!
