    I just got back from my first real dress trying on session. I can't even talk because all I'm thinking about now are dresses. Is this normal

    There is one that is really standing out to me - like, I can't stop thinking about it. The thing is it is NOTHING like what I wanted - specifically, it's strapless.

    This is exhausting and I've only been to one place. I have another appointment on the 20th so I'm going to try to relax until then. Whew, I needed the vent.

        Leigh said it perfectly!
        By the way, Kate I love the dress you posted- have you tried this one on yet? I know the other girls will offer the same advice, but save yourself some heartache and make sure you don't try on anything you can't afford (or at least that's not in your budget)! Just ask Kashmira when she gets back...

          Hey Kate,
          What I ended up with is completely different that what I thought I wanted. I did not want a strapless dress, everyone wears strapless dresses. Of course, when I tried on my strapless, i fell in love and that was it. I think most of the time brides don't end up getting styles they think they want...

          If you like that dress. Just think about it and go try it on again in a week or two. Don't impulse buy ...

            Kate, I LOVE the dress, I can't wait to go look at dresses, but I should probably start sticking to my diet first, so I don't cry when I go!! I would still go to your next appointment and try on more, and I think you'll know if that's definetly the one for you!

              I agree - on what everyone said! I got something totally different that I thought I would at first. And I also spent a lot more than I thought I would. And I also thought about the dress WAY more than I thought I would - I really thought I'd just find a simple bridesmaid dress, get it in while, and be done with it.

              That is so not what happened. You have a little time, so just shop around some more to see what really catches your eye. And you will know when THE dress comes along!

              But to answer your question in one word ... YES!

                Thanks all!

                I did try on the dress in the pic and it was my fav. I never thought I would look good in a dress like that - surprise! I wanted to like other ones more because they were more what I thought I wanted, but couldn't.

                I'm going to go on the 20th to my set appointment. I'm also going to make an appointment at a 3rd place too. I've got 11 months so I'm not in a rush - but I do want to get it done.

                  I have to admit - it is a great feeling after you find, and buy the right dress!
