youve got plenty of time if its July 2013. You just need to be open minded. Try on many different styles that you wouldnt usually go for. And trust me, you will find one you love.

I’m in the same boat. I didnt find any off-the-rack dress that I liked, so I am working with a dressmaker to have one made. It’s coming in under budget and will be tailored to fit me, so no alterations!

I’m sure you can find a great local seamstress/dressmaker to help you – it’s totally an option! Also, this way nobody will have the same dress as you!

It took me FOREVER!!! I have been engaged 2 years and am getting married 6 months tomorrow. I think I found my dress today, after about 12 stores and over 100 dresses. I thought I was going to have to pick the one I liked the most rather than one I loved, but you just have to carry on, you WILL find it! xx

I completely relate to what you are saying. I have tried on over 40 dresses and still no “wow,this is the one” moment- starting to think that might not happen. I am going to Detroit this weekend for a big try on blitz, but I think I am feeling very pressured right now. I live in a very small town and I have to travel over 300 miles to go anywhere that has selection. It gets expensive to do these shopping trips, thankfully my mom has been helping to pay for the hotels. Really crossing my fingers I am going to find the right one this weekend…

I think I ended up going to 12 or 13 different shops and I must have tried on around 100 dresses.  You’ll find something.  Perhaps you could try some vintage dresses if there’s somewhere near you to do so?  They tend to be styled very differently to modern ones – you might be surprised as to what you find you like.

I went to every store in my area, and found my dress at the last store. Keep looking!
