It may sound silly, but I took note of the types of formal dresses that I like. I still have my prom dresses from like 6 years ago, so I looked at those to get a general idea of what I liked. I also did some research on my body shape and what looks good and flatters my figure. Then, I just googled wedding dresses and took it from there! I saved every picture I could. It was hard for me because I knew I wanted a red dress, but I promised FH I would try on white ones too. I had to get creative because there aren’t too many red wedding dresses. In the end, I went back to a dress shop from high school, and found my red dress!

I think once you find out what flatters you and what type of wedding you’re having, it will definitely help you scale down your choices. I’m 5’1 so I definitely understand the height challenge! I knew I didn’t want a big poofy ballgown because it would swallow me up and we’re having a beach wedding. I went with something flowy.

  • Take inventory of your personal style
  • Have an idea of the type of ceremony you’re having
  • Get your measurements taken
  • find out your body shape
  • do research on what can flatter your body
