Know — and love — your body.

As a woman, it’s normal not to feel confident about yourself from time to time. But we’re here to tell you, beauty comes in every size, shape, and color!

Embrace your unique figure and learn about the dress silhouettes and colors that best flatter your own unique beauty.

Depending on where you shop, feel free to ask any salesperson for help, because they’re experts at pulling dresses that will help every bride feel gorgeous.

Set your budget.

Love is priceless, but wedding dresses can get a little pricey. Luckily, there are gorgeous wedding dresses available at any budget! Determine your own budget early on, so you can focus your search on gowns within your desired range.

Start early, but not too early.

To allow some wiggle room for any possible alterations, you should start looking for your perfect dress about six to nine months before your big day. We wouldn’t suggest looking too far in advance, because you never know how wedding trends — and your personal tastes — will change.

Limit your entourage.

While it's tempting to bring every lady in your life along, it's best to keep your entourage small and intimate. Too many voices and opinions can not only be overwhelming, but might make you second-guess yourself. Choose a few trusted friends or family members whose opinions you value most.

And remember: despite what your loved ones think, you are the one that will be wearing the dress. Don’t be afraid to gently remind them!

Snap some photos.

You’re going to try on tons of dresses. Taking photos of yourself in the ones you love can help you remember details and compare your options much easier. You won’t have to retry any just to remind yourself how you looked in the first place! Plus, it's a fun way to capture the milestones of your dress-finding adventure.

Stay open to surprises.

Dresses look very different on you than they do hanging on the rack. You might have envisioned yourself in a certain style for decades, but don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone!

A style you never thought about could fit you like a glove, and make you feel like the queen you are. Those are some of the best dress stories we’ve heard!

Trust your instincts.

Above all, listen to your heart. When you put on the right dress, you'll feel it in every fiber of your being, and no one will be able to sway you. Listen to that feeling and let it guide you toward the dress that will make you radiant on your special day.

We hope these tips have been helpful, and have lessened all your dress stress. As you embark on this exciting journey, remember that it's not just about the fabric, the cut, or the style.

It's about finding the dress that makes you feel like the most beautiful, confident, and radiant version of yourself. We know you’ll find it.
