Tip of the Day: Going gown shopping soon? "Before you get lost in the blizzard of bridal fashion terms for sleeves, necklines, and trains, consider the basic outline of the dress," says Bianca Sparbanie, the owner of RSVP by B Wedding & Event Planning.

Bridal gown silhouettes fall into five broad categories: ball gown, empire, A-line, sheath and mermaid. Each of those shapes has distinct advantages and disadvantages. Decide which style is most flattering to you, and then start with trying on those dresses.
