Keep an open mind! Some of my favorites I tried on I nearly said no to on the hanger. Good luck and have fun!

ETA: wear a bra/underwear you are comfortable with the bridal consultant seeing you in (so maybe not a good thong day). Nude is best so you can’t see it through the dresses.

bring some water and a snack.  If you already have your shoes/bra bring those too.

and bring someone who’ll give you an honest opinion  🙂

Have fun!

Wear a strapless bra. Try on dresses that the consultant brings you even if you don’t think you’ll like it – I was very surprised what looked good on the hanger versus on!

JessRae:  Don’t let people pressure you – if you have opinionated friends coming, tell everyone (in a light way) that you’d like about 30 seconds to look at the dress in the mirror before people start sharing their thoughts. Form your own opinion and then take their thoughts and suggestions into consideration. Don’t let anyone pressure you into a dress you don’t feel great about (if you search this forum, you’ll find a lot of people who are in this predicament and thinking about buying a second dress).

I had a dress I didn’t think I liked as soon as I put it on – but as soon as I walked out of the dressing room my friends started gushing. I almost bought the dang thing because they loved it so much – I’m so glad I didn’t because it was not me at all. I think it’s helpful to get to think about it for yourself for a moment.

Agree with keeping an open mind. I went for a dress that was very different from what I thought I wanted, so try on multiple styles to really know what you do and do not actually like. And of course have fun!!!!!
