Be open to trying on something even if you dont think it could be your dress.

I wasnt looking for ruffles and ended up falling madly in love with Mikaella 1508-ruffles from chest to floor!!  It is for sale if you find it, try it on and want to get a fantastic deal…

i love the dresses you have listed!!

Usually the website of the store you are going to will list the designers that they carry. This is a good way to check if you like the designers they carry.

As for trying on dresses, you really don’t need to be overly prepared.  A strapless bra is probably the biggest necessity, but if your as unprepared as I was, that wasn’t on my initial dress shopping packing list either ๐Ÿ™‚ As far as questions, there shouldn’t be too many in addition to the information they give you about the dress.  However, the designer of my dress also made a ‘petite’ style which was 3 inches shorter than the normal dress length… this may be one question to ask as it saves a lot of money in alterations. Also asking about the alternative colors the dress comes in as well is really the only questions I can think of!

Just have fun and enjoy! My dress was the 4th dress I had ever tried on.  You never know if it will be the first, fourth or 30th dress you end up trying on. Just enjoy the experience!!

Good Luck!
