Hey lady!  First off – almost congrats!! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

As far as your dress – let me see if I can help.  When you go shopping go in with an open mind! I use to work in a bridal shop and 9 times out of 10 the bride’s “fantasy” dress wouldn’t be the one she ended up falling in love with.

Now I’m NOT saying don’t try on your dream dress.  DO IT! Who knows you might love it and it might be the dress for you.  But don’t feel down if it isn’t.  Try on a variety of dresses – different styles than your dream dress and some that are similiar.

For me personally I walked into the bridal shop having shopped online for like 5 minutes the day before.  The only thing I knew for sure was that I wanted strapless because I love strapless and it looks good on me.  There was one dress I was intriqued to try on because it was so different and modern (ended up NOT being “the dress” because I wanted a longer train). 

“The dress” ended up being strapless (duh) with lace and beading and a scalloped edge.  LOVE IT! 

Happy shopping!!

@annasaf83:  What is the plus size Range? I’m a street size 10-12. Does this put me in plus size for wedding dresses?

David’s Bridal has sizes up to 28 or so I believe – so don’t worry! I’m a plus size as well, and I was really worried about this going into my appointments. But I called first, asked about the dress or dresses I had seen online and liked and if they carried them in my size. Just a note, David’s doesn’t always carry every dress in their stores. So take note of the ID number and ask when you call. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I had a dress in mind too, and my vision of what I thought I wanted changed quite a bit once I tried dresses on. Try to be open minded and let the consultant know what you do like, but give her a bit of free reign and try on other options she might bring you. ๐Ÿ™‚ HAVE FUN!
