Hi Oct 2013 brides!!
My dream dress is at the Dolly Couture Shop in NY, NY, but I live in Cleveland, OH. My mom is insisting that I just go to David’s Bridal and try on dresses. I am afraid I will settle for a dress at David’s and never get the chance to see me in the dress I’m dreaming of. Is it too early right now to be thinking about this stuff? I am just so excited and I don’t want to settle.
I am worried about ordering a dress without seeing it in person or trying it on. NY is far away and I’m not sure my mom will go with me. Should I wai tto try on until I can go to NY or should I go to some local shops and keep an open mind?

I think you should go try on dressed that have a similar style but I would say not to order it until you try it on. I ended up falling in love with a completely different dress than the one I thought I loved that I saw online. I tried on the one online and didn’t love how it looked on me. Maybe you and your mom could plan a little weekend getaway to NY to try on dresses in the future. You could find a nice deal on a flight.

I as well ended up falling in love with a completely different dress than the one I thought I loved that I saw online. You still have a little time to try and plan a trip. Maybe even see if they might be willing to send it to another stroe so you could try it on?

is there any place around that has the dress? whats the dress called? I know how you feel I had a simalar problem. I love a dress that I saw before I even got engaged lol but I had no idea where to get it. in the magazines it said it was in klienfields in Ny… I live in az lol. so I went to davids bridal to see what they had and if I could find one I liked. Its very easy to get all caught up in the whole thing and just pick a dress that you like. For me anyway the fact that it looked good on me and just the whole experiance got me over excited i guess? lol. I found a dress at davids bridal and I said I was gonna get it but I was gonna come back in a week and order it. I rang the lil bell and everything. as soon as I walked outta the store I was doubting it but everyone kept reasuring me that it was beautiful and my dress so I accepted it. My dream dress was always in my mind tho and a few days after my davids bridal trip I told myself I need to at least try on my dream dress and if I dont like It I will get the dress from davids bridal. So I searched online and found that a few places in az had it. I was so excited and set an appointment. when I went in for my appointment I saw the dress and It was even more beautiful in person! as soon as I saw it there was no doubt I loved it. problem was they only had the dress in a size 14, being a bigger plus size girl I could not fit into the dress and had to hold it up to me. I still loved it. No place else in az had it in a size bigger then a 14 so I took a chance and ordered it. Its comming in this october and I cant wait to try it on for the first time! I know Im not gonna regreat it!
The point im trying to make is dont settle! I say find your dream dress! if you cant get to it then try dresses on that have a simalar style and if you like the way it looks on you I say take the chance and order it. Try a bunch on and if that dress is still in your head then thats your dress! 🙂 good luck!
