Camesha Allman: I wanted a dress that was lightweight but made me look and fell like a bride. My priority was comfort, I didn't want anything to pull me down. With all that in mind, I decided to take the first dress that made me cry, I tried on a few and this Sophia Tolli was the only I felt emotional in.
Debrica Scott-Nembhard: I love my dress mainly because of its bodice. The dress chose me.
Anieka Lawrence's dress was custom-made by her mother-in-law Pauline.
Tina Nicolaidis-Morris: I knew right from the start that I didn't want to wear a traditional wedding dress, mainly because I wanted something individual and something that would be 'me'. I fell in love with the black and white dress by Australian designer Carla Zampatti because I love timeless looks and I knew it would be a dress I would never get tired of.
Syreeta Robinson: I fell in love with this Mori Lee at the first fitting. Mori Lee's designs cater to thick and sexy women. This stunning dress is modern and romantic, with just enough bling. The bodice of the dress fits and definitely flatters. I felt regal and beautiful.

Chirleen Drysdale:
Annesha McCallum-Davis' dress spoke to her.
Brawta: this gorgeous gown from Bliss Bridal is paired with a non-traditional statement necklace from Fontana Pharmacy. The budget-friendly necklace works because it mirrors the shape of the neckline on the gown and adds drama. A more buxom bride could choose a smaller necklace to avoid bulk, and a small necklace would also enhance cleavage.

Kamille Adair-Morgan: I love my dress, a Jasmine Bridal couture gown, because it represents my style perfectly - very sleek with the right amount of pizzazz.

By far, the wedding dress is one of the single most important elements of a wedding. A lot hinges on the dress. Each bride has her special dress out there which is based on her preferences and venue. The right dress will make a bride feel like the princess she has always dreamt of being. Flair did the groundwork and spoke to real brides who told us why they said yes to the dress.

Kaydian Sutherland Sangster: "My mom picked my dress.  I knew how I wanted to look for my wedding, but mom pulled the deress.  My wedding was in September and in order to have my dress in time to do the adjustments, I had to order the dress in March.  I made two appointments, the first at RK Bridal and the second at Kleinfeld.  My mom went to both places prior to me getting to New York and already knew what she had in mind for me.  Mom and my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law met at RK Bridal.  When we got to the third dress, I was just blown away.  You know its the right dress when all the other brides-to-be stop and stare.  The dress covered up the goodies like my mom wanted, but managed to be sexy.  Thanks mom!"

Charline K. Gipson: "I choose this dress because I immediately loved it; as soon as I put it on, I felt beautiful in it.  Before I was engaged, I never really spent much time fantasising about a wedding or what I would look like on that day. I had no preconceived notion of what style of dress I had to have.  I was very open, which made the decision of what to wear overwhelming at first.  However, it didn't take me long to find 'the one'.  I flew to Toronto to go dress shopping with my mom and best friend, who was also myu maid of honour.  When I came out of the dressig room with my wedding dress on, everyone was speechless.  No alterations or discussion needed.  It was clear.  The key was the corset back, which created an extremely flattering silhouette.  I adored the beading and pick-ups, which added drama; but not too much.  Deep down inside, I also knew Rick, my husband, would love me in this dress."
