YAAAAY Good luck! My advice would be do not rush in to anything; sometimes those sales ladies can be pushy or persuasive! You’ll know when you find the one!

another bee gave me this advice – which I was so thankful for … which was:  do your hair and makeup! 

Other than that – try stuff on you hate hanging (you NEVER know) – and try on lots of different silhouettes so you start to figure out what you are most drawn to.

HAVE FUN!!

Oh – and take a strapless bra with you.  The first couple shops I went to had one and I thought that was the norm.  But then for a few others – I had to be helped into the dress sans bra…. a bit awkward!

Have no boundaries – try everything and anything on unless there is something you aboslutely do not want.  Dresses may look fugly on the hanger then once on they’re completely transitioned into beautiful yumminess. (wear comfy underwear, lol)

I am really short so I tried everything on except mermaid gowns, those were not gonna help my height, LOL

Good Luck and HAVE FUN – YAY I am so excited for you Wink

Most bridal shops have shoes so you may not need heels unless you’ve found some that you absolutely adore!

I totally agree to try anything and everything on! I ended up getting a dress i never even thought would ever look good and me and i dont regret my decision. have fun, relax and try not to feel overwhelmed. go with positive people and people that you trust to give you honest opinions and positive feed back!!

Have fun!
