Does anyone else NOT have a dress yet??? I am so nervous. I have been several places to try on dresses. I fell in love with one in SC but I am now worried about the price. I want to try it on again, but it doesn’t look like I will be able to get down there just to do that by the first weekend in Aug, which is the tax free weekend that I would need to buy it on. So I want to try a few more on closer to home. I am truly nervous that I will not find anything that looks perfect on me. I have been to 4 shops so far… am I putting too much into this??

Of course you’re going to worry about your dress! that’s normal! I think you should try some more on between now and then and go down and try it on again. I just recently got my dress and it was between 2 and my Maid/Matron of Honor asked “Which one are you going to be thinking about in 6 months?” That made the decision much much easier for me, I knew right away which one I’d be thinking about months later. Good luck and let us know what happens (post pics if you can!!)

@LadyCupcake: I think she’s right-we all are stressing to find tht beautiful dress that was made for us! 🙂 You’re not alone! I think that trying on a lot is a good thing. I haven’t started looking because my grandmother (who owns a bridal shop but has closed it-still retaining the dresses) has offered to let me look there and have a dress for free if I find one I love. I don’t want to fall in love with another dress in the meantime lol.
Now as for your predicament-do you know the designer and style number? I am a big believer in researching on the internet. Sometimes you can find a MUCH better price or an item on sale/trunk show special/etc. Anytime I find a price on something I immediately compare shop online be it a little purchase or a big one! 🙂 Hope this helps! If it’s a custom dress, I’ve got nothing except to maybe take a picture of the one you love and post it on the wedding boards and see what the other ladies can find that is similar! I love to see splurge vs. steal items.
Good luck-you will be a gorgeous bride no matter what I am sure!

I haven’t found one yet. Waiting on my Mom to come up. It’s super stressful not having it yet, because what if it takes longer than 3 days to find it!
