Tip of the Day: "Finding 'The Dress' can be extremely stressful for most brides, as it is the most important dress you'll wear in your entire life. Before scheduling appointments at bridal salons, I highly suggest that the bride-to-be does some research," says Melissa Heholt from Statice Events.

To get an idea of the styles of dresses available, browse Bridal Guide's gown gallery and Pinterest. Heholt suggests creating a private Pinterest board with your top gown picks. "After pinning several dresses, the bride will hopefully start to notice commonality amongst the dresses that draws her attention; whether it be the designer, silhouette, fabric or length. Schedule appointments at bridal salons within budget and that offer your preferred designer," she says.
