Trunk shows usually let you buy the samples, but most shows I’ve been to have either an 8 or a 12.  The bridal store might let you have the sample at a discounted rate, but I definitely wouldn’t buy anything larger than a 6 if you need a 2.  I’m also pretty petite (and am a size 2).  My mom’s good friend is a costume designer and told me to buy something no more than 2 sizes away from my true size because then the dress begins to lose shape.  She warned me that many places will tell you it can be done, just so they can make a sale.  Good luck!

Good luck!  I’m going in a few weeks and I’m terrified!
