Martha Stewart Weddings Fall 2011 Wedding Dresses

Fourteen top designers debut their most showstopping new gowns and give great words of wisdom! 

Oscar de la Renta's Words of Wisdom: Try on as many dresses as you can, and don't limit yourself to one silhouette
Vera Wang's Words of Wisdom: "Stay true to yourself -- to your taste and what works for your body," she says. "My ideal client is a woman who really knows who she is and who she wants to be."
Monique Lhuillier's Words of Wisdom: Don't trust a picture -- ever. "The only way you'll know what looks best on you is to try it on," she says. "A gown could seem great on paper, but until it's on your body, you won't really know."
Amsale Aberra's Words of Wisdom: The ideal gown reflects a bride's personality, she says. "Think about what you wear every day -- are you classic? Avant-garde? -- and go from there."
Tom Mora for J.Crew Words of Wisdom: Take a chance.
Carolina Herrera's Words of Wisdom: Herrera is adamant about making important decisions alone. "Go dress shopping by yourself," she says. "A lot of opinions will only confuse you, and at the end of the day, it's only yours that matters."
Badgley Mischka's Words of Wisdom: "A good fit is so important," says Mischka. "If it suits you perfectly, even a basic gown can look incredible."
Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig for Marchesa Words of Wisdom: When choosing a gown, go with something that highlights the features you like most. "If you don't feel completely comfortable, you are simply not going to look your best," Chapman says.
Lela Rose's Words of Wisdom: "A lot of women come in and choose something off the rack because they don't want to wear a 'wedding gown,'" says Rose. "But why not? You're getting married -- it's the one time when you can really go for it."
Angel Sanchez's Words of Wisdom: "When you find 'the dress,' you'll know. If you don't feel an instant chemistry when you look in the mirror, don't buy it!"
Lazaro Perez for Lazaro Words of Wisdom: Embrace the spotlight, advises Perez. "If you're proud of the way you look in your dress, why not flaunt it?"
Reem Acra's Words of Wisdom: Hard as it may be, try to avoid trends, says Acra. "Years from now, you don't want your children to ask, 'What were you thinking?' Your wedding look should never go out of fashion."
