Don’t worry too much…there will be samples you can try on.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I thought there’d be nothing, but it’s amazing to see how the bridal consultants can get you into dresses even a few sizes too small.  You may not be able to try on every dress, but definitely enough to see what silhouettes, styles, and embelishments you like best.  I only took 2 people with me, whose opinion I didn’t mind hearing, by the way.  ๐Ÿ˜‰  I’m sure you’ll have a good time.  Just keep a positive attitude, and wear full coverage underwear.  heheh

Have fun, relax and enjoy the experience.  The first time out dress shopping was fun for me.  I tried on a number of different styles of dresses and found out what I thought I wanted, wasn’t really what l wanted.  So be open to trying on dresses that may not look so great on the hanger.

Depending on where you go, you should have samples. I called ahead just to see if they had my size or close to it in a sample. I found mine in my first trip, in my size, btw. And I’m an 18-20. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy it! And bring people you can take honest reactions from. For me, this was my mom, sister, and best friend/MOH.
