Hi Bees! I was just wondering how you all were able to take pictures of the dresses? I am located in the Orlando, FL area and I have looked a a few bridal boutiques and they have said that taking pictures was not permitted until a deposit is put down on the dress. I was very disappoited as that was my whole plan. I am pretty far from my family so I wanted to take pictures of different styles to send to my mom and get her opinion before buying anything. I also want to shop around and not be pressured into any one thing I like.
I want to try on ballgown styles but I’m short (5’4″) and realize an A-line or different style might work better. I’m wondering do I have to just look for boutiques that allow this? I was looking at smaller, private boutiques over the big names but maybe I have to go with a big name to be able to take pictures? Any thoughts?

They said the same to me here – its a rule with a lot of the dress makers and I’ve found that some shops enforce more than others… you can always snap a shot in the dressing room if they wont let you!

frywedding2015: David’s Bridal will let you take pics. Even if you aren’t sure you want a dress from them, you could try on different styles and get an idea of what you like. who knows, maybe you’ll find your dress there.

try a fishtail, that flares out at the knee.
make sure it gives a good waist.
sweetheart necklines are very pretty on everyone.

take your purse into the dressing room and take pics in there. there are some shops that will let you take pics as well, but as a fail safe just keep your phone with you 🙂
