I’m from South Dakota originally but am living in Wyoming for the summer, so needless to say my dress shopping has been limited to internet searches, which is both good and bad. I have found two gorgeous dresses in my price range (under $500) the only issue is I can’t find places that have them for me to try on. One is from a 2006 collection and the other is a Maggie Sottero Destination Wedding dress. I love both of them but I want to make sure that which ever one I choose makes me feel like a bride.
Has anyone else had this problem? Or have any advice as to what to do?

Is there some place in South Dakota that has them for you to try on when the summer is over??

I’m not sure where you are in Wyoming, but could you make a day trip down to Denver or over to Billings? You can call shops before to find out if they carry a sample (or similar style) of the dresses you are looking at, but I think the more important thing would be to just try on dresses of that silhouette and style. For example, if the dress you like is a strapless , a-line with a really structured bodice, you’d want to try on dresses (no matter the designer) of that description to get a general idea of what they would look like on your body.

If there are any vendors near to you that sell that line, they can occasionally borrow a dress for a fee, usually $50. If you buy the dress they will apply the $50 you paid towards the deposit.
I would go to the designer’s website to see closest vendors to you and if they don’t ahve the dress ask them to borrow/loan the dress.

Thank you so much for your advice. I’m in Cheyenne and we have a Maggie Sottero vendor so I definitely will go in and ask if they could borrow the dress for me. The hardest part is doing this on my own and trying not to be my own worst critic when it comes to trying on dresses
