What Bridal Gown Is Right For You?

After years of pinning styles and dreaming about your big day, it’s finally time to shop for your bridal gown. But with so many options to choose from, including a wide range of price points, how do you know what dress is right for you? We spoke with experts who weighed in on a few factors that can help shape your budget.

From designer pieces to embellishments, there are a variety of factors that can determine the final cost of a wedding dress. One of the biggest is fabric, which can have a major impact on the quality and look of the dress. In addition, alterations also play an important role in the final price. For example, taking seams in or out, hemming the skirt, adding ties for a bustle, mending fabric, shortening straps, inserting bra cups and more can all add up to a significant amount of work.

A bride’s choice of neckline and silhouette is also a crucial factor. Depending on how much skin you want to show, your hairstyle and the vibe of your wedding, certain shapes can be more flattering than others. Whether you’re shopping online or in-person, taking photos of yourself wearing a few different necklines and silhouettes will help you narrow down your options.

Another important consideration is the color of the dress. While white dresses are most often seen in wedding pictures, they weren’t always the norm. Before the mid-19th century, brides from all walks of life wore whatever they liked—even blue, black or gold! The classic white wedding dress only became de rigueur after Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in 1840.

While the gown symbolizes a bride’s transition from her own independent identity to her role as a dependent wife, it’s also a symbol of new beginnings. A beautiful, bespoke bridal gown will be a lasting reminder of this special day for all those who witness it. Whether it’s purchased, custom-made or passed down from generations before you, the dress is a powerful symbol of love and commitment.
