brideofjamaica:  Ahh well then my strategy would be to start with grandma’s desires first and after you convince her those are not for you, then she’ll be open to suggestions. A trick is to look really unhappy in a dress, then when you put on the one you like and smile you’ll make it look much more attractive, so grandma is bound to love it.

As a young bride, who had dress regret, it sounds like you have a good plan! I was 21 when I bought my first dress and I got so caught up in the moment. I was 22 when I bought my second and it was so much more “me” and fit my beach venue 1000 times better! Although, it was a mermaid so it wasn’t your typical, flowy beach dress. I think it’s great you went by yourself to get an idea. I know your grandma is paying, but make sure you don’t settle, or you’ll end up with regret! I don’t think itll hurt to try on a few more, but you might end up going back to your first choice, and thats okay! Also, I think a lot of people end up with dresses that are different than what they were expecting!
