Well things have been a little crazy for me, my birthday was last week, I’m starting a new job soon, the in-laws are moving, its just been plain crazy for us, but I finally decided I should probably get around to dress shopping seeing as the wedding date is creeping up.
Needless to say my mother is over the moon excited to go shopping and so is my FMIL but I honestly am kind of dreading it.
1 I hate being the center of attention 2 I can sometimes be indecisive so i’m hoping I don’t encounter a situation where I have to choose between two amazing dresses. and 3 dealing with pressure from sales people.
SO to end my complaining can anyone give me an idea of what to expect? Anything I should know in advance to help me out? Also do you need to make appointments with places or do I just show up?
Thanks for you help everyone!

Nearly all places require an appointment, so I would book some ahead of time.
My advice is simple, relax and have fun. Be honest with the consultant about your likes and dislikes. Don’t put pressure on yourself, if you don’t find THE dress your first time out, you’ll find it later 🙂

@Lyndzo: am I shopping about the right time before hand? I’ve seen a lot of brides saying it took like 7 months for their dress…so I’m a little concerned. I figured I could push it off for a while now but that made me a bit concerned.

Be open minded. Even if you think you absolutely don’t want a certain look on a dress if a consultant pulls it out for you try it on. I said absolutely no lace and no mermaids or fit and flares. Guess what the dress I fell in love with and bought is all lace and a fit and flare lol. My point is just because you don’t like a dress or look on others or the model doesn’t mean it won’t look amazing on you so shop with an open mind.
Also stick to your guns about your budget. Make sure your consultant only pulls dresses in your budget. Check the price tag before you put the dress on or risk wanting a dress that maybe over your budget.
