I think you’re set YAY – – You’re gonna have so. much. fun – – Sometimes I want to go dress shopping all over again because it was such a wonderful time, LOL

My advice is this – – Leave the pictures at home, go with an open mind, and try anything and everything on. Don’t crunch your face at any style because some dresses are butt arse fugly on the hanger and then drop dead gorgeous once on, NO JOKE!!!

Enjoy every minute Laughing

I agree that you should bring a pair of shoes with you. I would also suggest bringing something to hold your hair up if you’re going to have an updo for the wedding.

I recommend:

1)Slide-on shoes:

Heels/platform shoes that you can slide in and out of.  It will save you so much time if you don’t have to buckle/unbuckle your shoes.

2)Hair clip – in case you want to see how the dress looks with your hair up

3)Easy outfit – tshirt and shorts or simple dress that you can slip in and out of easily.  You’ll get tired and hot if you have to button and unbutton fancy outfits.

This is just me though.  🙂  Other girls might feel the pressure to look fancy when they are going shopping.

I aree with Jackie-O! Things look WAY different on than they do hanging.

1. Trust the saleslady/man. If she recommends something, give her/him the benefit of the doubt and try it.

2. Stay openminded! I started my dress search looking for a lace mermaid, I ended up with a taffeta ballgown. Try on all different shapes and styles because THE ONE might surprise you like it did me.

3. Dont settle! Dont let yourself get pressured into something you’re not sure about.

Also, if you’re a little shy, get some cheap Spanx. They’ll make the dresses lay nice and also cover you up pretty well. They also help if you’re not quite the sample size.
