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 Cocktail Length:

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.
