wedding dress


Hello there, and welcome to the new and improved Ugly Wedding Dress of the Day, your online resource for ugly wedding dresses and lots of snarky comments. Woo-hoo! Having fun yet?

To get to the heart of the site--the dresses themselves--you have two options: The Blog, where all the latest dresses are posted, or the Archives, where all dresses from August-December 2003 are kept safe in a little vault.

If you have questions about the site, check out the FAQs. Your question may already be answered, but if not, feel free to submit a question.

If you'd like to support UWDotD, you can go to the Support section of the site for further information.

Interested in site credits and disclaimers? Check out the ever-so-fun Credits section.

If you want to get in touch with me or submit a dress, drop me a line at whitneyATuglyweddingdressDOTcom!

Have fun!

Most of the bride's we've talked to have told us that this is one of the first things they look for when they become engaged. More time and thought is put into choosing your dress than anything else! (except, of course, your choice of husbands)

  • There are some amazing web sites on the net which can help you to sort through the styles and begin to decide which ones will suit you best. We're going to be providing you with the links and some tips on choosing a dress that you'll look back on in 25 years without shuddering.
  • Most of the bride's we've talked to have told us that this is one of the first things they look for when they become engaged.  More time and thought is put into choosing your dress than anything else! (except, of course, your choice of husbands)
  • This is not the time to go with a will have pictures of this particular dress that people will be seeing years from now so timeless elegance is the key!
  • If you don't look good in a hat and flouncy sleeves today, you won't look any better in them on your wedding day...don't fall in love with a style, choose a style to suit you.
  • If white is just not your color (not everyone looks wonderful in white), don't be afraid to choose the amazing tinted dresses that are available today...when the white is toned down with a soft whisper of another color it can enhance your beauty without washing you out.
  • Go to the largest bridal store in your area before you make your mind up on a style...wear your most alluring undergarments because you'll be spending a lot of time showing them off to a perfect stranger...make sure you have a lot of time and then try EVERYTHING on! It's amazing how the dress you just didn't think of is often the one that looks best on you.  Every time you find a dress that might possibly be "the one" take a Polaroid of it.  Keep going 'till you've exhausted the supply of dresses and the saleswoman then take a deep breath and walk out.  (this is the hard part because you'll be so tempted to snatch up the dress that very day but this is one of the most important purchases you'll ever make and shouldn't be a spur of the moment one). 
  • Now that you know the basic style that suits you, you can search the net, the bride magazines and wedding shows comparing prices, fabrics and subtle design changes that may look even better.
