With so many different necklines, silhouettes and details to choose from, we have a vast, stunning selection from the industry’s top bridal designers. Whether your focus is on back interest, sleeves, support or something else, we feel confident that your dream dress is waiting to be discovered in our salon. Discover more below:
Pick Your Silhouette
Your ideal gown’s shape is partly based on the style you like, the venue, and mood of your wedding, and also what flatters your body most. A fit-and-flare is both contemporary and traditional and works on many body types, whereas a simple sheath is best on tall, willowy brides. A voluminous ball gown adds drama, but can overwhelm a petite frame. Mermaid styles show off curves like your favorite pencil skirt.
Decide if You’re More Traditional or Trendy
Perhaps you’re more the type who wants to look classic and timeless on your wedding day (think lace). Or maybe you’re a fashionista who loves being up to the minute on trends. If so, try on some of the hot bridal runway trends for 2019, including capes, detached sleeves, and short hems. Discover more bridal style, compliments of Brides

Feel Great, Look Great
When it comes to ballgowns, loving the silhouette is the first step toward finding your ideal wedding dress, but there’s more to consider. Your gown should also make you feel phenomenal by the way it enhances your shape. Looking great has a lot to do with feeling great. Ballgowns are excellent for many body types because they effortlessly create gorgeous, flattering lines.
When you’re ready to start searching for your dress, here are some tips to maximize your shopping experience:
Brush up on dress terminology 101.
Taffeta, tulle, illusion — oh my. It’s helpful to speak the same language as your consultant, and you may not have looked at designer dresses in a while (cotillion and prom were many moons ago!). As you’re pulling pictures from Pinterest, be sure to check out the terminology behind the looks you love.
Remember that every bride’s experience is different.
Just because your sister picked her dream dress during her first-ever appointment doesn’t mean the pressure is on for you to do the same. Don’t be deterred if it takes you longer than you expected, but also don’t walk away if you fall in love at first sight. Check out Southern Living for more wedding advice.

Here are more details to consider when it’s time to shop:
DON’T forget about the top of your wedding dress.
A long, gorgeous wedding dress with a fancy hem is to die for. Just remember that the top of your dress is what people will notice most—and what will show up in most wedding pictures. “The majority of wedding photos that guests take of you are from the waist up,” says Margee Higgins, 30. Higgins picked a Lazaro gown with straps and a high belt, both of which you could see in all her photos.
DO wear a gorgeous bra when you’re trying on wedding dresses.
On wedding dress try-on day, you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your skivvies. Admiring your pretty new bra between gowns will make you feel much more positive than catching a glimpse of the ratty old gray one you’ve had for years. Plus, a well-fitting bra can actually help in your search. “Many women don’t realize the power of having well-fitted undergarments,” says Kpoené Kofi-Nicklin, the owner and designer of Mignonette Bridal. “Go to a department store that has a bra fit specialist, or a lingerie shop, and get fitted for a new bra. You are going to be wearing a gorgeous dress on your wedding day, so there’s no excuse for wearing the bra you’ve had since college underneath.” Continue reading, courtesy of Glamour
