The Hunt is on...for the Perfect Gown

So you've flipped through magazines and have a pretty good idea of what you want to wear at your wedding. But before you run out to buy something, try on everything.

Here are a few shopping tips:

1. Make appointments at several salons. Pick salons that sell different designers and stores that have a different feel to them.

2. Choose salons that carry low, moderate and high-end priced gowns. You never know which dress you will pick. The gown you fall in love with may be expensive, inexpensive, a designer brand or a sample gown off the rack.

3. Bring a friend or relative to your appointments, but make sure it’s one whose fashion sense is similar to yours. While your friend who wants to get married down south poofy as a belle may try to be objective, she probably won’t truly appreciate a minimalist Vera Wang creation.
