What is a common misconception brides have about wedding dress fittings?
“The time it takes to alter a dress sometimes can be a shock to a bride. It is better to allow 8-12 weeks for ‘normal’ alterations to be completed. If you want customizations, you should allow more time according to the complexity of the work done.” — Melissa Bryant of LeAnn’s Bridal in McKinney, Texas
“The price of alterations. A quality seamstress is a true artisan. They have been trained in their craft and need to be compensated for their time and work. Brides should budget a minimum of $500 for their gown alterations.” — Beth Chapman of The White Dress By the Shore in Clinton, Connecticut
“Sometimes a bride will panic if their bridal gown doesn’t fit perfectly at just the second fitting. Brides must remember that a professional will take their time to get the dress to fit you correctly.” — Emily Luther of La Soie Bridal in Pasadena, California

Ballgown: I have often heard brides be wary of this dress because of Scarlett O’Hara connotations–they are worried about looking too diva, too cupcake, too much. Don’t be. There are so many ways to keep this traditional silhouette completely modern. Above, a sparkly bodice with tiny cap sleeves and a column of miniscule buttons down the skirt make this ballgown new and exciting. You can also play with belts, hem detailing and lace overlays in different shades (below, right) to prevent your dress from being generic.
Trumpet: No wedding dress silhouette is enjoying more current popularity than the trumpet dress. It’s not as structured or as slinky as mermaid silhouettes (more on those in a minute), and allows for a wide variety of styling and details. Indeed, it’s not difficult to find this silhouette in everything from vintage lace to modern colors. Below, these more prominent trumpet shapes are softened with the use of lace. The capelet on this dress (left) would make it so pretty for a winter wedding. And a sweetheart neckline naturally goes very well with the proportions of this silhouette (right). For brides with a round face shapes who want to elongate their look, make sure the “v” in the sweetheart neckline is pronounced and sharp. My Wedding discusses some great silhouette styles to consider.
