      Go with a lot of PATIENCE. If you are in a hurry, it is not going to be fun.
      Just be relaxed and have a good time.
      Also, I will tell you that sometimes you see one taht looks great and you try it on and it looks awful.
      And then you see one that looks so-so and you try it on and va-va-voom!
      Have fun and happy shopping! Hope you find the dress of your dreams!

          This is soooo true!!! The dress I fell in love with was actually one I picked just to see how the tea-length looked. I didn't even pay much attention to it until I tried it on. OMG it looked amazing!!! And the dresses that I thought I loved looked horrible on LOL. HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

                  Try on everything and anything! All different styles, fabrics, so you can see what you like and what you don't.

                  I dress shopped FOREVER! And I didn't think I was an oh-my-god-this-is-it kind of girl, but turns out I just hadn't found the right one. And the reason was probably that I was being too close minded about what I wanted. The dress I bought was one I was like "oh what the hell I'll give it a shot" turned out to be my most favorite dress by miles!

                  Have fun! Bring a camera!

                    Wear full panties - not a t-back since you will be dressing in front of people. Also bring a camera and take pics. I fell in love with a dress but once I saw myself in it in the pic - I hated it.

                      I agree with everyone else. Be patient, the right dress will come in time, do not get discouraged. try on many different types of dresses. i found so many that i loved but where made for an "A" cup and I am a "D", so that didn't work out so well. and of course have lots of fun and take tons of pictures!!!
