At the end of the day, this cheat sheet of wedding dress terms is going to help you walk into an appointment with the ultimate level of confidence.

Bernstein said the emergence of discount ordering services — either through toll-free telephone numbers or the Internet — has spurred some retailers to remove disclosure labels from their gowns. It is not against the law to remove manufacturers’ labels and replace them with a store’s own labels, she said, but it is illegal to sell or show a gown that doesn’t have the required information at all.
The bridal collection designed by celebrity event planner and wedding expert, David Tutera is unlike any other! Every gown is one your guests, and groom, will remember forever. With beautiful details like crystal encrusted necklines, hand-beaded embroidery and opulent laces, the David Tutera Collection for Mon Cheri Bridals has the wow factor. David Tutera wedding dresses are available for special order in size 0 – 20 and 18W – 26W.
On your unique day, a majority of the photos will be taken from the waist up, making the neckline of your bridal dress the star of the show. A strapless, corset bodice is the most popular because it is so versatile. If you have a fuller bust, a simple bodice with a structured off-the-shoulder neckline is a good place to start. If you have a smaller bust, you can look for an embellished bodice or a sweetheart neckline to give it more emphasis. Also, a square or scoop neckline looks great on everyone.
Tip 2. If you are on the voluptuous side and want to accentuate your curves, Mermaid or Fit and Flare dresses are the perfect styles for you. The most important thing to keep in mind when considering these styles is whether or not you will feel comfortable wearing them on your big day. You may have a flawless figure perfect for this type of dress, but if you do not feel confident in them, avoid them.

If you've bought "The One," stop shopping. Go obtain The One out of the closet, put it on and also stand in front of the mirror.
Shopping: To make your day a pleasant and rewarding one, try not to visit too many bridal shops on the same day. When you are fresh, full of energy and enthusiasm, you will be able to make sound judgments. On the other hand, if you come to the store exhausted and unprepared, after trying a few styles you may be confused and find that all the gowns begin to look the same and you may come home toting one of the cheap wedding dresses simply because you were tired! Bring along pictures of wedding gowns you like and be open to discuss your plan and idea with a bridal consultant. It could happen that the gown you like in a picture doesn’t look good on you. The bridal consultant will study your figure type and personality to help select the styles that flatter you and suit your budget. Try on all of the dresses the consultant shows you, even if it may not seem like “your style” of dress as most wedding dresses look much better, and different, on you than on the racks. You may want to bring a family member or friend along for a second opinion. Avoid taking more than one person since too many opinions can conflict and confuse. Wearing appropriate undergarments and a bit of makeup can also help to make the wedding dress look and fit better. Take a Polaroid camera along just in case you cannot decide. Take a picture of yourself wearing each wedding dress and bring them home to study.
Talk with your bridal consultant about your body type and which dress styles will look great on you. You might ask your consultant questions like, “Which styles are best suited to my body type?” It is important that you listen to their answers and take their advice, even if it means trying on dresses you don’t think you’ll like. One of the most important rules to remember when shopping for a wedding dress is to never judge a dress by how it looks on the rack. It’s best to always try it on to get a realistic sense of how well it fits you. You might end up falling in love with a dress you never would have looked at twice when it was on the hanger.

Our color charts online have been adjusted to display color as close as possible to the color of the actual fabrics. However, camera resolution and computer monitors can mean the color may vary slightly between the photos and the actual fabric. Colors are subject to the actual dresses you get. We suggest you order a fabric swatch to view colors in person.


If you plan on wearing a veil, first consider the venue: “A long cathedral veil is beautiful for a traditional religious ceremony, but it could be distracting on a windy beach,” Risatti says. Depending on your preference and budget, you can buy off the rack, order from a bridal designer, or have one made by a veil specialist. (A high-end salon can give you names.) Wait until you’ve chosen the gown to start shopping so that you pick the right length and shade of white; get a swatch from your dress to match it exactly. Custom can take up to six months. In all other cases, just buy it in time for hair and makeup trials.
