We are very excited about the engagement of Prince William and Kate. Weddings are a time for planning with family and friends and it will be fun following their special plans. What gown will she wear?? Where will they honeymoon?? How many will be on the guest list?? All the same questions as our brides to be........
Keep it fun, special and within your limitations and planning your special day can be a wonderful time in your life. Congrats to all of the engaged couples!

Many brides want to know when and how far in advance should they start to look for their dream gown.

Shop when you are serious about buying...when you find it say Yes to the dress...You do not need to go to more that 2-3 specility bridal salons.
Friends and family referrals are a good starting place… Continue
