take ideas/pictures of what you like and are looking for. Have in mind what you don’t want too!

Make sure you try on dresses that you wouldn’t normally choose. I tried on everything, and found that the style that looked the best wasn’t the one I was originally wanting! Good luck and have fun!

i agree with both rosie girl and sweetsalsa! i took pictures of what i liked, but one place let me just look around so i pulled things that i thought might look nice or were a certain weight that i wanted my dress to be. my friend also pulled things that she thought was interesting. i tried all sorts of styles on and in the end i really love a dropped waist simple but elegant dress that i would have never tried on.

definitely try on different styles but have an idea of what youre initially looking for and set a price range.

Ooh! I didn’t like mermaid styles either. Always saw myself as an a-line or ballroom kind of gal. But I ended up with a trumpet style and I LOVE IT! Now…just to stay thin…

I argee with the bee’s.  Try on lots of styles, styles you wouldn’t necessarily think look nice on you.  Have pictures in hand for a general idea to give the seamstress or whoever.  Keep to your price range, try your hardest not to stray because there will be tons of other things that end up being more than you expected if it hasn’t happened already.  And take your time, don’t settle because you think you have to hurry and get a dress.  I rushed, and now I have 2 dresses, oops.

i think you should first set a max budget. one of my friends got her dress customized and before she knew it ended up being 14,000.

you should also definitely research dress silhouettes that you like and are fitting to your body type…

good luck and show us pics of the final product!! 🙂
