Woah girl — breathe! lol

I understand why you are concerned but you are fine. Most shoops say it takes 6-9 months for your gown to come in but usually that inclused alterations etc.

I would say get an idea of what kind of shop you are going to and the range of prices with their gowns — have an idea of what you like and don’t like (bring picstures as it will help). I can’t stress enough to keep an ope mind on my two fittings i had them bring me everythign I didn’t want.. but I was willing to try to get an idea

Just bring a good bra and spanx if you have them, if not meh!

Good luck!

I haven’t gone shopping yet but I am planning to bring a bra that I can wear with backless styles, wearing nude undies and maybe even bringing a spanx type thing. I am trying mostly backless style and sheaths so I want to get a good idea of how my body will look.

I went shopping at David’s Bridal, and they provided the corset to wear.  Maybe just wear a strapless bra wherever you go though, just in case.  They gave me a book to look through so that I could show them the styles I liked, and the consultant took it from there.  Don’t stress out too much!  It’s supposed to be fun 🙂

Take a deep breath! First off I believe dresses take about 5-6 months to come in. Mine took exactly 6 to the day. I didn’t bring anything with me to try on dresses and a lot of dresses will actually have long line bras sewn in.  The exception to this is David’s Bridal who provides the bra for you to try on dresses with. Bottom line,  once you select a dress let the shop worry about getting it in on time for you. 🙂

Wear light colored underwear and light colored and/or strapless bra.

Figure out what you like, but be open to suggestions too.

Lastly, relax! You are not behind, you are right on time, and you will find something.
