@LucyLaLa:  I think you may just have to go to one BIG store and try on lots of dress shapes. There is really no other way to find out what suits you and what you like best. Cant see a way around it. Then you can look at just the styles you like secondhand.

I don’t know about unethical. If the consultants work on commission, then it’s not really cool to take up their time. Ask the bridal shop if the consultants work on commission. If they do, then say that you want an appointment, but you know you are not purchasing until you find a style, so you’d prefer to come in, self-serve and not take up a consultant’s time.

I was pretty sure I was going to make my own dress but I still went and tried on dresses to see what I really wanted. I went to 5 bridal salons and out of the 5 only 1 actually had a consultant just for me where she put in time to help me out (but my friends still got me in and out of the dresses) so I don’t feel guilty at all.
