Keep doing what you’re doing – and be open-minded enough to try anything! You never know what will look amazing until you see it on you. 

Good luck!

@mrskeysar:  Definitely try on the gowns you had in mind! If there’s a trunk show (by a designer whose gowns you’re interested in) going on near you , go to it. They often give discounts and/or make little additions here and there that you might want for free. What I would advice is check the prices on two of the most reliable sites I know (bestbridalprices.com – many have told me about getting dresses from there and being completely satisfied – and RKBridal.com – my friend got her gown and our bridesmaid dresses for her wedding there and paid a lot less than what we would have paid at a regular bridal salon and they’re an authorized retailer for a lot of designers) before you try on gowns. That way, you have an idea of whether or not you’re being ripped off. Also, if you do end up choosing to buy directly from a bridal salon near you, ask to see if they cap their alterations at a certain price. Let me know if you need anything else! Good luck! 🙂

PS: With RK Bridal, there’s no tax on orders outside New York and shipping is free on gowns above $800. I got my gown during a trunk show and the price was only about 50 dollars higher than what RK would have charged, so I decided to just go with the salon, especially since they knew exactly what I wanted and were going to cap my alterations at 200.

@mrskeysar:  Definitely do not hesitate ordering from RK! There was a slight mix-up with my order from the salon and I referred to the size chart on RK Bridal’s website before calling the salon up. I then called Enzoani to make sure I had the correct size chart and the girl there said, “If you got the size chart from RK, then that’s accurate because they’re one of our biggest retailers!” Good luck! And let me know if you have any more questions!

@mrskeysar:  That was my dress in NOvember 2011. Bought it out the catalog and never regretted it.
