@butterfly1988:  After your first time at one bridal salon you will calm down. Trust me, I LOVE to shop but I hated the dress shopping part but after my first time the others werent so bad. Where are you going? I see you are in NY and I went to lots of places in NYC and NJ.


ETA: I just saw that your wedding is in SIX MONTHS?!? Why did you wait? Because of your anxiety?

You aren’t 6 months off, you are only 5 months and 3 days off!!! Get your butt to the nearest bridal salon :p you’re cutting it really close and I’m sorry to tell you but most dresses take 6-8 (or more) months to order. So some salons may be a little rude to you. They were to me when I went the other week 🙁 DB might be a better bet for getting a dress faster. Or perhaps finding a dress of the rack? But do it soon so you can find a dress you love 🙂

i totally understand the nervousness and anxiety of dress shopping. I’ve been there! And its totally okay not to have the “THE dress” moment. It doesn’t happen for everyone. My advice to to take 1 or 2 people who’s option you trust and who you feel relaxed around to come with you.  And if you don’t find a dress the first time, that’s totally okay 🙂

I know exactly how you feel, my worries were more about the cellebrant than the dress shopping though. I’ve been with my fiance for 5 years and waiting for him to propose about 4 of those. Haha. It’s what I’ve wanted all along but when you anticipate it for so long it’s a bit overwhelming when it all happens! Our first meeting with the cellebrant she suggested some readings we could have and I was nearly in tears most of the way through it. Luckily our cellebrant is really sweet…she looked at me and grinned and said “someone just realised she’s actually getting married!” It’s all fallen into place since then cause I know A it’s really happening (finally) and B we waited until we were completely ready so there’s nothing to be anxious about.

@Quickiebee:  I wish there was a “Love” button for that statement, it made me giggle! I know the feeling, if drinking had the standard effect on me, I probably would have too!

5 months out and you have no dress, get going girl or all you will have to chose will be samples and being anxious about dress shopping will be the least of your worries-suck it up and get going- you’re dress is calling
