Why can't I find a dress?

I felt the EXACT same way. I think I had gone to 5 places and tried on lots and lots of dresses. Each time I’d find one that was the ‘top’ one of the bunch but never one that I loved. UNTIL monday when I found THE dress. I don’t know how it happened but I finally put on a dress that I couldn’t nitpick and I just knew I loved it. And now I’m obsessed with looking at pics of it (of myself in it–which is shocking b/c I’m not the biggest fan of my body right now and of the model). So you will get there. I think the best thing that I did was not let anyone (fam or the salesperson) convince me to like the dress AND went in knowing that the dresses weren’t going to always fit b/c I’m not the sample size. Also, just have a sense of humor! My mom and I laughed at many dresses that made me look like a flamenco dancer or a caterpillar (that one was hideous). You have awhile before the wedding. Maybe take a break and see if you like the next season of dresses?

@LadyOwens:  I can’t speak for the dress shopping in England since I am in the US but I can say I felt the same way…..I thought I’d never find one. I went to about 8 different shops before I found ” the one” Just hang in there b/c I felt the same way!

The good thing is you still hve plenty of time so as pp suggested maybe just take a break for a bit see what the next line of dresses that come out look like….that way you don’t burn yourself out!

@LadyOwens such a beautiful dress! I am in the same place as you were and taking a break from shopping. Hopefully next time I can find a dress I love too. It’s good to see someone in a similar position find “the” dress
