Okay so I finally got myself to call about the dress I love (online) and want to try on. Well actually FI called but whatever. I’d been having this unexplained anxiety about calling, about going, all of it. And after all that anxiety, the ONE bridal shop that carries that designer here has never heard of that particular dress and is going to call the designer and see if she can get one in for me to try on. So now I have to just wait…
I had psyched myself out (finally) to go do the wole try on thing. Hmph.
The only other retailers carrying that designer are all a minimum of 3 or 4 hours away (which I find INSANE, as I live in a large metropolitan area and I just can’t believe this!)…
Just find it funny that now that I am READY, the dress is not. Maybe I should call David’s Bridal or something, just to do some trying on while I’m in the mood?

Ha Ha! *laughing at you calling david’s bridal* I actually LOVE trying on bridal gowns. My only (well on problem at a time anyway) is I’m on the cusp of being a plus size so I really have a hard time finding dresses to try on that look good on me. I hope the bridal shop can get you the dress to try on!

I say just go to some bridal shops and try on whatever you want! Dont limit yourself to a specific thing, because you could end up loving something totally opposite. I went in to my dress experience wanting a lace trumpet and a birdcage… I bought a taffeta ballgown and a cathedral drop veil. lol. You never know what you are going to like in person.
Just make some appointments and make a day of it. Just be open-minded!

@MmeSilverBullet: Me too on the plus size. I’m a street 14/16, or a general “large”. I know I will probably need a bridal 18 and I’m anticipating low selection. I am also busty and that often makes things hard to find; I lost over 20 pounds in the past year and went and got fitted for bras last month and the bra size didn’t change ONE BIT! I would be thrilled to lose a cup size!
The bridal shop that carries the dress I’m hot for hasn’t called me back yet! Argh. If she can’t get it, I will eventually have to drive about 4 hours to try it on.
@zippylef: I know everyone says that they ended up picking something they never thought they’d pick… so yes, I do need to be more open minded about this. I am all fixated on a few certain dresses I’ve found online, mainly because, open minded or not, I know I do NOT want strapless under any circumstances and I’m afraid that’s all I’ll find if I am not picky from the get go.. ?
Does anyone knowif DB carries a lot more than what’s on their website? I would think so but just curious. I didn’t like anything on their website, really. Well one or two maybe but not much. What I did kinda like was as much as some designer dresses I’d found on other sites (discount sites) that I like much better, at least from pictures.
