I'm totally nervous about being overwhelmed and either making the wrong decision or not finding a dress at all with less than 5 months till the wedding. Any suggestions on strategy. I heard there was a show all about this on TLC or something. Did anyone see it?

I'd say you should definately have a laid-back attitude to be successful. Some of the ladies were kinda spazzy & it was annoying to watch them so I can imagine how irritating they were to everyone around them!!
Most people wore matching outfits or something to group them (ie hats or something) so they could ID each other in a crowd. Lots of yelling, lots of grabbing, but lots of deals! lol
That's all the info I can give you, from watching the show

I'm getting really pumped at the idea of finding my dress.
I'll post afterwards and let you all know how it went.

oh yeah, I've got a great team. My future SIL's are linebackers. 6 feet tall aggressive and strong. They're going to be my fetchers and traders. My mom and I are more reserved. I don't think I would have even attempted this if I didn't have my SIL's to be I've given them all pictures of what I like in a dress so hopefully, hopefully, hopefully I'll find my dress. Otherwise I'm in a real rush to find a dress with only 5 months to go I kinda stretched it to the limit on this one
