I have my first appointment for dress shopping on Thursday. My appoitnment is at David’s Bridal, but we plan to hit up a few more shops while we’re in Lexington. I would like to wear a nice pairs of jeans, some sort of top, and flats. Would that be okay? I honestly don’t own that many dresses, and I rarely wear them. I’m just more comfortable in jeans. Would it be okay to wear jeans?
Also, any other tips? This is my very first time wedding dress shopping, and I’m super-nervous.

Of course you can wear jeans! You’re naked pretty much the whole time lol.
There have been many threads on tips for dress shopping: search “dress shopping advice” here on the Bee.

@Love.Letter: You can definitely wear jeans!
My other tip is to wear underwear you’re not embarrassed to be seen in. A sales attendant will likely go into the dressing room with you and help you in and out of your dresses… so beware of wearing an old thong or something. 🙂
People also say to wear a strapless bra if you have one, but that’s not essential.

I wore jeans to a couple fancy shmancy places in Boston and didn’t get one weird look, you’ll be fine! Just wear something easy to get in and out of 🙂

Of course you can wear jeans
Although DB does let you try on heels with their dresses, Id take some the height you were thinking of wearing

Jeans are 100% fine. But like PP have said, wear underwear with a full butt and aren’t raggedy! lol

yep, jeans are fine, especially this time of year. I wore boy shorts and a strapless bra – and one lady at one dress shop actually thanked me for not wearing a thong. Guess she sees a lot of bare bottoms. Bring or wear heels of a sim height to what you’ll wear on that day.

I wore jeans. Other than having the right underwear, what you’re wearing when you get there doesn’t matter.

Jeans are fine. Wear modest underwear. If you have one, wear a good strapless bra. Wear some makeup and do your hair. Have fun!!!

chile, I had just spent all day moving boxes and cleaning out my house. I wore sweatpants and a t-shirt with a winter coat and…uggs I wanna say? I didn’t have a chance to change into any cute panties or anything. And that was the fanciest salon I visited. I got super fresh for the others wearing dress/blazer/pump combos. Shrugs. They want your money. They care not about how you’re dressed.

I wore a t-shirt and jeans! At David’s Bridal, they bring a corset/bra for you so I didn’t even have to worry about strapless bras.

Huh? You can where whatever you want. You take it off and try on dresses.
