If you’re shopping for wedding dresses San Diego bridal stores have an often overwhelming selection. Firstly, decide what your budget is; ideally the dress should cost up to 15 percent of your total wedding cost. Focus on the right fit and a dress style that suits you; different dresses look better on different body types, such as pear shaped or hourglass shaped. Shorter women may want to opt for a long. slim dress to make your legs look longer. Your wedding location may determine your dress style too; a ball gown with a long train won’t look good at a beach wedding, while a too short dress won’t seem appropriate in a dimly lit cathedral. Don’t forget to start shopping early for your wedding dress; few things are as stressful to a bride than trying to find the right dress at the last minute.
