Go for what your heart feels and I think you'll know you've found the right dress when you see it you'll feel it in your heart x

Hi I would try on a few different styles to see what style suits you first then seriously start looking :)

Look thru the racks and pull out what catches your eye. Until you try the styles you won't know for sure x

Try on every style, even if you think you won't like it. They can look very different to what you imagine when you have them on and it might surprise you what you end up liking. As for the style of your wedding, have a look at this link https://www.brides.com/story/wedding-themes-for-every-bridal-style and see if anything takes your fancy, mix and match if you like more than one, my sil is having a very traditional wedding but then the theme for the invites and table plan are beauty and the beast and her tables are all Marvel/Disney themed. Have a think about what your favorite things are and incorporate them somewhere, my cake was one of the reveal style and was a traditional cake at the front and then star wars at the back x

It's why you try dresses on. Just go with an open mind

Have you picked your date and venue yet? Your venue choice can help guide your overall theme for the day which also helps with the style and fabric choices for your dress.

I would suggest working out how many people you are expecting to invite, less than 50, over 100 etc. That will help you decide on venues for wedding and reception and maybe set the tone. You wouldn't necessarily want to wear a massive heavy ball gown if your getting married on a beach. Once you decide the venues I think you will start to picture what kind of wedding you want.

Try picking a colour scheme first then things to tie in with that as for dresses look through magazines and online for idea but go a try a selection x

Go to a few wedding shows. They have lots of ideas and they are normally shown at the wedding venues so get to look around them at the same time.

We had an idea of what kind of wedding we wanted but we viewed other venues that would provide a different option to be sure. Dress wise I had my heart set on one dress. Wasn't til I tried on other styles (even ones I'd said no too straight away when my mum pulled them out) that I actually ended up with the dress I'd initially refused to try on. X

Go to a bridal shop and try on different silhouettes. Any decent shop will be able to hone your choices down until you find the right silhouette for you, then you just need to find the design you like. There are so many different styles now that it can be confusing but the only way to decide is to try them on. Good luck!

Try a few different dresses and don't rule anything out. Am a total tom boy and my dress is a proper princess dress I didn't really want to try on.
