It can be hard to take in how a strapless dress really looks when your leopard bra straps are sticking out, or how a curve-hugging gown would fit once your hips are smoothed. For your appointments, wear a nude thong and strapless bra, and bring Spanx.


If you’d prefer long, fitted sleeves, check out this elegant design by Ellis Bridals. With an all-over illusion sleeve and low illusion back, this dress is striking and sophisticated.

This chic number is a bestseller for a reason. Made from guipure lace with grosgain panels, its figure-skimming silhouette is incredibly flattering. With a small puddle train, we could totally see this at a destination wedding. The material won’t make you too hot and the train will be ideal for a beach wedding. Of course summer in the UK would work equally well too!


If You Must Start Over, Save Some Cash Zuhair Murad Say you really can't fall back in love with the dress, but you can't afford to scrap it and start from scratch buying a second one. Re-sell it online, emphasizing that the dress is brand new and unworn. "That way you can recoup more than the average 50 percent resale and get back 60 to 80 percent of the retail price," says Julie Jones, founder of Encore Bridal, a gown resale website.


18-year-old Nazmayde Castillo from Birmingham, Alabama is going viral for her insane DIY prom dress. The super cheap dress started as a mini from Fashion Nova and her boyfriend MJ Johnson actually found it for her (prom date goals!). "I found it on @fashionnova for her and she had the idea to add flowers at the bottom," he wrote on Instagram. "$50 dress flowers was all it took."

Keep an open mind while wedding dress shopping. You may find your dream dress that you didn't know would be your dream dress.


While they most likely won't work for a formal wedding, for a more casual, rustic, or beachy wedding, untraditional lengths can be a fun way to bring your personality to your big day dress. Tea length is fun for a quirky bride, whereas a white minidress has a rocker-chic party vibe.


"Salons frequently have sales to move older inventory, so you'll find designer gowns for 25 to 50 percent off. The only downside is most sales are stocked with sample sizes—that's bridal 8 and 10, comparable to ready to wear size 6 and 8," says Mark Ingram, president of Mark Ingram Atelier in New York City.
