@butterfly1988:  try on some dresses that you feel like you would never try on! let other people pick some out. you may put one on that looks weird on the hanger and LOVE it on yourself!! goodluck and have fun!

1) Have an open mind and try on different styles

2) Don’t put on anything over your budget

3) Strapless bra and seamless underwear (or Spanx!)

4) If you have to talk yourself into liking a dress, it’s not the dress for you

5) Hand your cellphone to a friend to snap pictures, both to compare and capture your reaction

Trust your consultant! Mine let me/my mom/sisters pick out as many dresses as we wanted, but ALL of my favorites were ones SHE chose!

She actually had to talk me into trying on the dress I bought!

Don’t bring an entourage, the more people’s opinions flying around can cause you to become overwhelmed. Remember to stay true to yourself and listen to your own voice. Only you know how YOU, want to look that day. 🙂 and have FUN
