My biggest tip is to be very careful with who you invite to go along with you..  I know you would initially think to invite all the bms and such so they can all be part of the experience…but it can end up disastrous. 


I did that, and for me, they ended up ruining my dream dress experience with their negative comments and look on their faces. It completely ruined an otherwise amazing experience for me. 


So… the next time I went, I went with my mom and sister. That’s it. A waaaaayyyy better experience.

khaleesi:  Yes it is! I actually didn’t see the movie when I was little, but I came across the book when I was in 7th grade, and adored it. Then I sought out the movie and loved it too! Unicorns are still my favorite animal, and it’s because of that book/movie 🙂

Come up with a budget amount. Then take off at least 25% and tell everyone that’s your budget. Taxes and alterations are not cheap!
