  Advice from a recent bride 
"How I found my perfect dress?
I first went to David's Bridal to try on different styles until I found the one right for my body. Not wanting to break the bank, I shopped at non-conventional stores such as "off the rack". I was able to find a designer gown at an affordable price."
