@sunflower22:  are you seeing a therapist?  they will definitely help you through it, and catch any warning signs if things start to go downhill.  it’s great that your FI is so supportive!

what also helped me with dress shopping is not obsessing about it.  I went in, got my dress and haven’t put it on or looked at pictures of me in it since.  also, go dress shopping with supportive people, those that will assure you you look beautiful (and you definitely will!).

I’m not a health care professional, but I am someone who has suffered from self esteem issues & anxiety for as far back as I can remember.

There were some things I did that really helped me feel alot prettier on the day of :

– wearing spanx so I didn’t feel so “exposed”

– doing my hair & makeup

If I would have had one that fit properly, I would have worn my own, comfortable strapless bra. The longline bra they put me in was MUCH too small and made me feel VERY unfortable .

And yes, take people with you who don’t make you feel self conscience, and who will make you feel lovely and give you honest opinions about the dresses.
