bring a strapless bra, I work this black one and you can see it in my pics because I had to put the straps on the side.

Bring someone whose opinion you trust…oh, and some water and candy – it can be quite exhausting getting in and out of those dresses!

  • Take people who’s opinion you trust.
  • Wear clothes that are easy to get in and out off.
  • Bring a hair clip or tie.
  • Be specific in what you want, BUT keep an open mind, you might suprise yourself in what you love.
  • Make an appointment.
  • Wear pit stick! Some dresses get hot!
  • Consider if alterations need to be done, it can add a big cost.
  • Ask about how long a dress will take to order in.


  • Bring tons of people!!
  • Dont wear a lot of make up or smelly lotions.
  • Let the sales people push you around, or whoever you bring.

Not sure if I’m missing anything, but have fun!!!!
