Welcome to the Hive!  All I can say is look around and get some ideas!  This place is great for that kind of stuff.  Also, I love Pinterest ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow congrats! That’s exciting ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope I’m not being too forward but are you transitioning or do you identify more with one gender than the other? Are you doing a 2nd smaller ceremony because your family disagrees or something? Anyways, welcome! What kind of dress are you planning on?

Maybe you can start narrowing down the dress thing by setting aside general styles that you’re drawn to naturally–what you like on a gut-level, as opposed to what you think you should like, if that makes any sense… For example, do you want something with lots of beading and sparkly stuff? Or something more simple, with just a few blingy accents (or none at all)? Do you like lace? Are you for/against strapless or mile-long trains? Once you’ve figured that out, maybe you can move on to dress cuts you like (A-line, ball gowns, empire waistline, etc). That way, if you already know you don’t like, say, lace, or strapless models, you’ll just naturally skip over those as you’re trying to chose whether you want a ball gown or an A-line dresss… Oh-oh! And, of course, it helped me to have a realistic budget up-front… I didn’t even bother to look too closely at stuff I knew I couldn’t afford!

Hope this helps a little!
