You really have to try them on to see what works and what doesnt..

I agree with bells – until you try on different styles, you really won’t have any idea.  Dresses that I thought I would hate looked gorgeous on my figure.

Yes, try some on.  I thought I knew what would look good on me and then I ended up with a style I was convinced would look horrible on me.  It actually looks beautiful and the styles I thought I wanted just looked OK.  Go to a bridal shop and be willing to try on a variety of styles.

I’d have to agree with the others. I loved lace cap sleeved dresses…. I’d been looking at them for YEARS  because they were dainty and gorgeous and I thought they’d look better than anything else but as soon as I put the dress on, well it was awful! It didn’t suit me at all and it… It was just all wrong.

By all means look at dresses online and pick out certain styles that you love but try to be open minded when trying dresses on.

(btw i’m small chested too (like really small) but I ended up with a strapless so don’t discount those either!) 😛

@AshleyB: Yes def. Personally too, I love the corset back just so much better. Zips are nice and all but I found the corset back made the dress fit so nicer and had more staying power. I’ve got a strapless (strapless + small chested bride = potential fail) but the corset, I felt, just fit better and I wasn’t afraid of it going anywhere once I was laced up. (My dress is actually a zip back but I’m getting it altered to a corset back.)

@AshleyB: I didn’t know that either!! But my dress is discontinued and a leetle too big so I was really bummed about it until my Mum asked and the lady was like “yes you can totally change the back of this dress” I was thrilled! haha.

Have fun dress shopping! 🙂

Keep your dress shopping crew small also.. maybe 1-2 people, especially the first time. Since you’re not sure what you want, or what you’ll feel good in, lots of differing opinions can be really overwhelming. I totally found out the hard way! 🙂
