In 2019, the average cost of a wedding dress is between $1,089-$1,429. Expect to pay a bit more if your gown will include fancy beadwork, add-ons or intricate embroidery. These are just a few factors that can affect the overall cost that you will end up paying.
When choosing a wedding gown, you should consider a style that fits and flatters your unique physique. Check out this article from Real Simple that explains the importance of choosing the perfect dress for your body type. You’d be surprised how a few design details can really help shape a dress that fits you best.
Oh, and remember your hair should always complement your dress. Select your gown first and then decide your hairstyle.
Wedding gowns tend to run small. You will probably need a wedding gown that is a size or two larger than your normal size. Also, keep your hairstyle in mind. For instance, a waterfall braid might look great with an open back dress, but not with a high neckline.
