    The problem is, I can't decide!!! I went dress shopping yesterday and I can't even decide on the type of dress! I love the ease and comfortability (is that a word?)of a light, airy, destination dress. But the beatiful, elegance, from a sparkly more formal dress is what I've dreamed of since I was 4. I don't know if I want to be "sexy" or "innocent". I have no vision of what it should look like. At times I say to myself "I want to be a princess.". Then there are times when I'm like "I want to be sophisticated" (btw, I'm 30yrs). I just cant decide. I had the dress consultant, bringing me so many different styles, I felt bad for her! INPUT PLEEEEEEAAAAASE

      The best bet is to go with someone who is critical and whose opinion you trust. They'll steer you towards the style that works best for your body.

      You'll know when you try the "one". If you have time don't make any hasty decisions.

        Well I had the same problem. I ended up buying 2 dresses!!! (totally on accident) I got the first dress which is ULTRA DESTINATION. Its made of chiffon with a sweep train and is sooooo comfortable!!! The second is still chiffon but is well fitted and has a more embellishments with a longer train. After being on this site and looking at photos with brides in more traditional dresses on the beach, it doesnt look so silly. If I was to get married in a church back home I would probably go for the princess type dress but I think the second dress is a happy medium. Maybe thats what you should be looking for.... Something in between... still informal but with a little bit of style or sparkle!
        And dont feel bad about not finding one now. You will find one and the dress lady will be okay... its her job to help you find a dress. Good Luck.

            I agree that it sounds like you want something in between. Just keep looking & you'll definitely know when you've found the one. The minute you put it on you won't want to take it off or you'll think its not the one, go home & that dress will be on your mind constantly. I thought I found the one & the day I went to order it I saw another dress in a magazine. I decided to try it on just for fun & that wound up knocking the other one out. It's also not what I would consider beachy but its not over the top & I love it. Get what you like & what makes you feel beautiful. Also, try on things you wouldn't normally consider.
            Relax & have fun with it. Oh, are you taking pictures of yourself in the dresses?

              Thanks for the advice girls. I am taking pics of the dresses. I'm going back tomorrow with a friend to get her advice. Hoefully I'll have better luck!

                FYI - there is a "Wedding Attire & Rings" section on BDW that you might get more help in, instead of posting in the Jamaica section. :)

                    Just keep going to different stores and looking at magazines for ideas.
                    I firmly believe that when you see The One, you just know it.
                    I always said i wanted a really light/airy dress for my DW but when I saw this one dress I fell in love with it. It is definitely not too too light but wow, I just felt regal when I put that sucker on. :)
                    Don't give up. You will find The One. :)

                      I had a simple but elegant dress
                      I wanted something more dressy than a dw dress, but not poofy.
