Here is a great article on how to choose your wedding dress. It gives tips for choosing the right dress. The first step is to pick your wedding date or at least what time of the year you will be getting married so your dress is season appropriate. Next you should set a budget before even entering the store that way you won’t fall in love with a dress you can not afford. Next the article discusses what to expect at the bridal shop and what you should bring… bring pictures of dresses you admire, do not bring too many people. Too many opinions distract from your own. The next section of the article goes into detail about how to pick the right dress for your body type. The article also goes over final touches, accessories and so on. I recommend checking it out before looking at dresses.
To get inspiration for pictures to bring to the bridal shop with you I recommend going to theknot.com Here you can narrow down your choices and get a bunch of great pictures for when you go to try on dresses. I am using theknot.com to gather ideas for how I want the dress in my film to look.
