Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. And you want to look absolutely perfect. Getting the right dress is key. But shopping for a wedding dress can be a stressful experience, especially if you don’t know what you want or what to look for. Running around from store to store browsing dresses gets overwhelming very quickly. Doing a little research online to see what styles you like, what aspects you might want to have on your dress and what’s in right now can go a long way in easing your mind. Here are five of the top websites for great wedding dress ideas to jumpstart your dress shopping adventure.
At Brides.com, they cover everything wedding related, from the registry, to the ceremony and reception, all the way to travel. They have an entire section devoted to wedding dresses under their fashion and beauty heading. Here, you will find images of the latest fashions, different styles, inspirations from around the world, as well as a variety of dresses to suit all kinds of body types, providing you with a vast array of ideas no matter what your tastes and needs.
Style Me Pretty
Style Me Pretty calls themselves a “style-savvy resource devoted to the modern bride.” They offer all kinds of useful information to brides-to-be, including vendors, DIY projects, and, of course, fashion. Wedding dresses featured on Style Me Pretty’s blog have a more high-end feel to them, so if your wedding is to be sophisticated, classic and/or classy, this may provide just the inspiration you’ve been looking for.
Wedding Wire’s main job is to connect newly engaged couples (or their wedding planners) with reputable wedding vendors. They offer planning tools and forums, along with their vendor services, to help couples plan their perfect wedding. What’s more is that they have an entire section devoted to wedding dress ideas, with dress ideas from demure to daring, as well as a section for dress photos, allowing you to filter dresses by style, silhouette, neckline, accents and more.
Wedding Ideas is a website for the magazine by the same name. Much like the other websites, this one is devoted to helping you plan the ultimate wedding, no matter what your tastes or budget. Not only does it have planning ideas for the bride, but it also has ideas for the groom and the entire wedding party. Wedding Ideas contains several wedding dress posts, with dresses of all kinds, from vintage to modern, simple to ornate, and all the latest fashion trends. They also often feature wedding dress collections from small independent designers to well-known brand name designers, giving you the chance to find ideas that you are sure to fall in love with.
Pinterest is the ultimate site for inspiration. While they don’t specialize in any category (they are a “catalogue of inspiration” for everything from food, to travel, to parenting to fashion), you can most certainly find wedding dress ideas here. You can browse general ideas, or filter down your search to find dresses for different styles, different themes and even different seasons. Then you can “pin” your favorite dresses and create boards to organize your ideas.
Searching for your wedding dress should be a fun, enjoyable experience, not one that makes you cringe every time you think about it. If you’re not sure where to start, don’t just head to the stores. Start your search online to get some wedding dress ideas. Once you know what you’d like, you’ll most certainly be able to find the dress of your dreams.
