Every bride dreams of finding the perfect, show stopping dress with which to delight her groom, and Vegas brides are no exception. Some women have been mentally designing their gown for years, others feel overwhelmed by the shopping process and do not know where to begin. With some research, tips, and an investment of time, every bride can succeed in finding a dress that suits their style, their budget and their body type and is a perfect fit for their Las Vegas wedding.

An important consideration when choosing a dress is that of the aesthetic of the wedding and reception. While a traditional gown is always in good taste, it may make sense to incorporate the wedding's overall theme in the type of attire chosen. More casual weddings may call for more informal dresses, including cocktail length options. Couples embarking on a fun filled Vegas wedding may get even more creative with their apparel. Elvis and Priscilla costumes have been known to appear on brides and grooms at some Vegas chapels. American Theme Weddings on West Sahara Avenue is a one-stop shop for unconventional bridal attire for the happy couple as well as their attendants.

Wedding dresses can be purchased in several types of silhouettes which flatter different body types. Understanding body type is critical in selecting a great dress. Ball gowns are characterized by fuller skirts and flatter just about any body type, though they may be best on brides of average height or taller. A-line gowns are also popular choices, as they feature a close fitting bodice and a flared skirt. Sheath dresses are sleek and elegant and best on slender brides. Within these broad categories are dresses of every description from the very simple to the highly embellished. Couture Bride on South Durango Drive is an intimate bridal salon offering personal attention and consulation to brides seeking to determine the most flattering style for their figure. Carrying high end lines such as Vera Wang, this is a much loved Las Vegas wedding dress destination.

Brides are well advised to determine a dress budget and try to stick to it. Wedding dresses come in a full spectrum of price points, and it is important to decide whether a dress for one day warrants a large cash outlay, or if something more modest in cost would be appropriate for the couple's financial circumstances. Shoes, veil and other accessories must be factored into the budget as well. Fortunately, there are bridal vendors, custom dressmakers and even resale websites ensuring that every bride can find something to suit their needs. Brides wishing to conserve funds or those whose wedding is a relatively spontaneous event will be pleasantly surprised at the ease with which a wedding gown can be rented in Las Vegas. I & A Bridal, located just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip offers last minute gown and attire rental in sizes ranging from 2 to 46, with basic alterations included.

Choosing a dress can seem like a daunting task at first, but many brides find it to be one of the more enjoyable tasks associated with planning a wedding. By keeping body shape, wedding type and budget in mind, and by taking advantage of the wealth of bridal resources available, every bride can find a dress that for them is truly ideal.
