@Soon2BD-CBee:  I was nervous going dress shopping as well because I am not skinny either. I’m a size 12. I brought my mom, dad, brother, grandma, and FMIL. I brought pictures of dresses with me to show my consultant what I liked. She picked out a few for me as well based on what I told her I liked and didn’t like. Also make sure you set a budget. Don’t try on a dress that’s way over budget. I tried on a few dresses that were a couple $100 over budget because I didn’t want that little bit of money to stand in the way of me finding and getting my dream dress. I fit into most of the sample dresses which really surprised me. If you have a strapless bra I would suggest bringing that. They let me use there crinoline. I tried on different silhouettes because you never know what will look best on your body type. I never thought I would never fit into and look good in a fit and flare. I have actually lost 60 lbs. over the past couple of years so to see how good I looked in most dresses was incredible. It felt even more amazing putting on my dream dress. I loved my wedding dress shopping experience. I had such a blast. The dress I ended up choosing was a dress I had a picture of, but didn’t show my consultant because I hated the bow on it so if it wasn’t for my consultant pulling it I would have never tried it on. The bow ended up being detachable. Remember just relax and have fun. Good Luck!
