I will make it brief but right now I’m weepy (again) I made this whole big deal with everyone at work about travelling out of town to find “the dress” and well-it didn’t happen. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I keeping jumping all over the place- one minute I think I want fit and flare and the next minute I’m trying on ballgowns-it didn’t help all my BM’s had very different opinions and almost all the dresses I tried on were huge on me even with the clips. I tried on over thirty this weekend and although some were beautiful, nothing excited me. What’s wrong with me, am I the only One like this? I have to travel several hours to get to these salons and now I am frustrated and sad and feeling very pressured (my own fault) Sorry for the long post but I am very overwhelmed right now

@dressme3: Take less people with you, varying opinions will affect how you see the dress on you. Take one girl you feel has similar tastes to you or has style tastes you love. Leave the rest at home, I promise it will be much easier.

@drummerbride: +1. Its easier with fewer people there. If there are a few in the running, have your friend write down what you liked and didn’t like about each dress. Weh you get home look over your notes and at the pictures of you in the dresses (if you can take pictures). I didn’t make my decision in a salon with everyone there. I made it when I was by myself and realized that there was one dress I loved more than the rest. The notes my friend took made a world of difference (I liked mermaid and trumpet, but the point where the dress flared made some dresses flattering and others not, and she was able to figure that out from her notes).

thanks, I think you are right, I need to take a little break and look at the pictures, most of theplaces we went wouldn’t allow it so the undercover shots we got weren’t the best, I think I’m just going to take my mom from now on- she seems the most to get what I want. I think alot of this is self-induced, I keep reading all these dress regret posts and they sort of freak me out and now I just can’t seem to commit- the thing is this is so not like me at all

To be honest its your opinion that matters the most I didnt take anyone shopping with me because I didnt want anyone messing with my head and i bought my dress in the first shop I went to and to be honest I could have taken any of the dresses I tried on that day
