I’m not either and I’ve already picked my dress and bought it.  I had tonnes on my computer file too.  Go and start looking at shapes in person, making sure what you think you like actually looks good on you, or if there is anything you want to try that may surprise you.  I got my dress on my second “looking” trip!!!  But, heed my warning, if you find one early, and it’s the one.  Stop.  Looking.  I loved the short experience I had trying on dresses but I know in my heart of heart that this is the one and yes, the very next dress could blow it out of the water but you can’t do that forever.  If and when you find the one, and it doesn’t matter when that is, breathe, commit, and let the fun of trying on rest.  Then you can start obsessing (in a fun way!) over the next thing, like accessories, the hair, the bridesmaid dresses, etc!

@awndrayuhh:  Haha! I did the same thing. It’s great that you save the ones you like for later reference.  When you get close to buying one you’ll be surprised how your tastes change.  I purchased my dress last October and recently looked through all my saved pics and honestly can’t believe I liked some of the ones I saved.

I was the same way then I went dress shopping and everything I thought I wanted went out the window… I fell in love with my dress and I have even still looked and nothing is more me than the dress that I have!

@awndrayuhh:  Are you noticing trends in the dresses that you are saving? I would start jotting down buzz words – for example, do you like ballgown, mermaid, fit and flare, a line?  Corset or buttons?  lace or no lace? This way, when you do start shopping, you can tell the bridal consultant generally what you like, so they know where to start picking dresses for you to try on!

I’ve tried on that many probably. I guess some girls are just picky! It’s good that you’re doing your research. When you actually shop, try on all different styles and once you find a silhouette you like that will narrow it down a lot more. Good luck!
