Though you may want to shop around and try on dresses, you can get a great idea of what is out there on the internet. It’s a great chance to preview different styles. Keep in mind the size and type of wedding you want. For a formal wedding, you might want a long dress in an elegant fabric with a headpiece and veil. For an informal wedding you might choose what is tasteful and becoming to you. Keep in mind the time of year. You will want to wear fabrics that are appropriate and comfortable. Choose a design that is becoming to your figure, height and taste. Consider your budget. Try to shop in advance in case you need to special order or need alterations. Keep accessories to a minimum so not as to distract from you and your wedding dress.
