@Mithralia:  I wish I had some to share, but I didn’t go dress shopping.  I was planning to, but we had to cancel due to problems going on at the time.  I bought my dress online though without trying it on.  So glad it ended up being perfect.  You can probably wear spanx though if you feel comfortable!  I don’t see a problem with that.  

I guess my only advice would be is don’t settle on a dress because it’s taking too long or whatever the reason may be.  =) Find that dress that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  Possibly cry.  Also remember to have fun.

i didnt wear makeup as i was paranoid about it coming off on the dresses ( like foundation etc) as some of them have to go over your head

i think the most important thing is to make sure you dont go with too many people and trust your instincts. and if a shop is snotty with you…go to another one. my sister went to a bridal shop with her friend (shes a BM) and the assistant/manager were not nice at all. picking a wedding dress should be a good experience!

and i would try one of each style even if you think you know what you want…you may be surprised what suits you and what doesnt! good luck!

Have fun! Follow your instincts, and try on dresses that you wouldn’t normally try on! I tried on a bunch of different ones and loved almost all of them, but the one that was the most different was The One. 

The shop I went to gave me a longline bra and slip to wear under the dresses, so you can probably just wear light colored underwear and be good. Get the designers and style names/numbers of the dresses, and take pictures (if you’re allowed–some salons don’t allow this).

Go more than once! Don’t have it in your head that you are buying your dress in that trip. It might happen, but it might not. They go faster than you’d think (the appointment). 

Atrapless bra, water, camera and minimal jewelry so it’s not distracting from the dress. 

Have fun!!!

Fun! Don’t buy on your first visit. Take pictures. Try on different styles/cuts at first, but when you figure out what you want, don’t doubt yourself!

You have some really good advice from fellow bees. I would say just live in the moment. Really look at the dresses and point out what you like on them and what you don’t. This really helped me when I tried on dresses my first and only time so far. I learned that I didn’t like certain lines cause by pick up skirts, I don’t like satin, halter tops will never be for me but that surprisingly i really do like ball gowns and tulle, and ivory color.

It can be a very surreal experience. It took me about an hour into my appointment for me to feel like I was a bride. I just had a hard time wrapping my head around it. I was really glad that someone was allowed to take pictures cause now I can look back and see what I liked and didn’t like from each dress. I think this next time I go out, I will be more prepared and more specific in what I want. And even though my mother loved me in a halter top, it’s my big day and I want my dress to be something I love. Just remember that, its your dress. Opinions are nice but you have to wear it and love it.

wear a strapless bra! i also think it’s nice to go on your own at least once…that way you are not swayed by anyone elses opinions. but mostly, enjoy it πŸ™‚
