Know your body type. Wedding dress styles are generally designed with a certain figure/shape in mind. To understand what dress styles are ideal for you, it is best to determine what shape you are. Knowing this will help you identify the dress styles that will be most flattering on you. To find out your body type and what styles are best suited for you, see the figure guide.

Keep an open mind. Start your wedding dress search with magazines and wedding related websites. This is a great way to preview different dress styles and designers. Be sure to make notes of dresses that catch your eye, but don't limit your selections to just one style or one designer. Dresses can look stunning in pictures, but it may not look the same on you. Pick out 10-20 dresses/designers and use this as a starting point to plan your visits to bridal boutiques.

Make sure you dress can fit your wedding theme. An important consideration in your dress search is to determine your wedding theme. Knowing this will allow you to focus your search on dresses that are appropriate for your theme. For example, if you are having a beach themed wedding, it may be awkward to wear a ball gown with a six foot train.

Set a budget in advance and don't try on the dress over your budget. Buying a wedding dress can be an emotional experience that can lead brides to overspend. On average, a wedding dress will cost around $500-$1,500. Couture dresses can run anywhere from $2,000 - $5,000. Research designers, styles and prices. This will help set your expectations and allow you establish a reasonable budget that you are comfortable spending.
