Over the next year or two, you’re going to have a lot of big and little decisions to make – fondant vs. butter cream, band vs. DJ, elope or big wedding. Whether you’re ready to make those calls or not, there is always one decision that is stress-free and highly gratifying: picking the dress. We know you’ve poured over wedding mags, but now’s the time to pull the trigger:

Best Goddess-Style Gown:

If you love silky, Grecian-inspired dresses, this J.Crew Silk tricotine goddess gown ($475) is divine – and the perfect price.

Best Cocktail Length:

This short Lanvin Tiered silk-gazar dress ($4,960) is the perfect dress for a destination wedding – or as a reception dress.

Best Sweetheart Neckline:

The sweetheart neckline looks good on everybody – and this ABS Strapless Rosette Gown ($510) has an intricate skirt detail that takes it over the top.

Best One-Shoulder:

Asymmetrical dresses are a huge trend, so why not be en vogue on your wedding day? This Carmen Marc Valvo Beaded Lace Appliqué One Shoulder Dress ($1025) is elegant, yet on-trend.
