Can anyone give me any advise. I have tried on 100 dresses. I like ball gowns but also like slimmer gowns. Many places will not let me take a picture or even give me the dress model number so I cant ever reflect back on what it looked like. Some notes about my wedding… its a ballroom wedding at a 5 star hotel. I want to look formal yet modern. I am worried about not being able to dance freely/comfortably with a ballgown. I have felt nice in a few dresses and cant commit. Just need advice. I want to cry I am so overwhelmed with the dress.

You need to take pictures, go to different stores, that’s how I chose mine. The one you look like a knock out in and feel beautiful in should be the One! Take pics on your camera phone if you have to! Trust me you can look great in a dress, and then get home and look at the pictures and change your mind, I did.

Can you try broadening your horizons? If you’re looking primarily at a few designers/stores, can you go for something completely different?
I think sometimes the notion of “the one” dress is oversimplified. For some people, there may be a feeling of “the one” but in all honesty, I bet most of us could find many dresses that we loved if we looked hard enough and had the resources.

If it is in your budget, what about two gowns, one for the ceremony and one for the reception when you are ready to dance.

Unfortunately I do not have the budget for 2 dresses. and whenever i take pics with camera its not the best. I do think the idea of spending so much on one dress thats supposed to be stunning stresses me. I think I just needed to vent that. Thanks ladies.
