In the real world - you have to think about your budget.
If you are taken aback by how much wedding dresses cost, don't discount the high street for some gorgeous gowns which are very purse friendly.
This Charlotte ivory gown from BHS has been inspired by Pippa Middleton's Alexander McQueen bridesmaid's dress at the Royal wedding. And it is a snip at £175.
This elegant dress features a cowl neck with lace edging, cap sleeves, a fish tail and a concealed zip with mock buttons running down the back - you can look like royalty, even if you don't have a king's wage.
Remember - it's not where it's from, it's how you wear it.
