who are you going with? and where are you going? My biggest piece of advice is- try it on anyway. lots of brides are surprised because their dress is not what they had in mind, and lots of stuff looks terrible on a hanger and great on a girl! and post pics when you are done!

i wore black panties, so i could make sure i could wear whatever i wanted later on lol. they will have bras and stuff so dont worry. Also dont forget dresses can be altered, i HATE wearing strapless dresses, but mine is strapless, i’m just having them added.

I have never wedding dress shopped in Calgary (thats where I’m from originally) but i’m sure you will have fun!

also at some point try on the most ridiculous dress they have and have your moh try a silly bm dress. I have an amazing pic of me in a bridal bonnet and a huge dress that was totally not me at all and my bms in a variety of metallic plaid/ chartruce dresses. it was the most fun part!

an i’m a little biased, but try Maggie sottero if you can, her dresses rock and they are pretty affordable! (for a wedding dress)

I went dress shopping for the first time two weeks ago. I’d recommend wearing a strapless bra just in case they don’t offer you a long line bra. Also wear some underwear that cover you up since the consultant will be helping you try the dresses on. It’s a good idea to do your makeup and hair too so you have some idea what you will look like rather than the no makeup/pony look. Be sure to take a camera in case they let you take pictures! And HAVE FUN!

Wow, in one day!?  You’re a soldier.  I can’t do more than 2 stores in one day.  I just got too exhausted!

 

Looks great on you!
