Don’t worry & just enjoy the day!!  Some of the best advice that I got was to kinda ‘dress up’, I blew my hair out that morning and really did my makeup, it just made it feel a little more special. Also, let the consultant try you in ALL of the silhouettes.  I ended up getting a dress I never would have tried on til I saw myself in that silhouette.

You will be amazed what they can help you get into & see how it fits.  The dress I ended up buying was nowhere near my size but I was able to get in it enough to really see it & fell in love!  You will have an amazing time – just don’t let the pressure get to you & make sure you really listen to yourself!

AmandaLeigh731:  I feel ya sister! I’ve gained about 40 lbs over the last 2 years and since my wedding is a year away, I have to get crackin on the wedding dress buying and there are quite a few dresses that I just love but I’m super nervous to try them on too because I don’t want this giant let down because they don’t fit right or something.

I agree with PP about trying all silhouettes though. You never know what you might love!

And definitely post pics if you can! Dress pics on real brids are my favorite posts!

Have fun!

Be open minded!!! Try on different sillouettes. Let the consultant pick some out for you to try on. Do your hair and makeup, wear spanx and an underwire bra if you can. If not, some will let you use theirs. 

Ask around, as most brides will tell you they ended up choosing the one and it was completely different than what they thought they were going to get! 

Most of all, have fun and be happy!! The BEST accessory is a great smile!
