We think you'd agree with us when we say that picking the debut gown is the most fun task in planning a debut. To help you choose a design for your gown, think of these factors.

Body Type
This is one question you have to answer honestly. Figure out your body type—hourglass, straight, inverted triangle, and pear—and determine which style would accentuate your assets best. Think of your height, too, as some styles specifically flatter shorter or taller girls.

Budget
Keep in mind that you'll be spending more if your debut gown has more details. Be upfront with your designer about your budget, so that she or he can suggest styles that could work.

Season of the Debut
Talk to your designer about the time and season of the wedding, so that s/he can school you about the different fabric weights and gown styles appropriate for your debut. Pay attention to comfort—after all, you want to be able to move in your gown.

Venue
Consider the ventilation of your party venue, and the activities you plan on doing for the celebration and after-party. An alternative is to explore ways of transforming your debut gown—like having a detachable skirt to show off a shorter dress.
