    I'm just starting my dress shopping this Friday. I'm hoping I'll find something right away since I will be going to the US to try on dresses. Some of the girls were saying that they were just starting their dress shopping as well. If you already have your dress then you should probably get it fitted now and then ask whoever is doing your alterations (if needed) when you should have another fitting.

      My dress came in and I went to try it on & take it home... and it fit like a glove, so I'm not planning any alterations. But I'll see how it looks early next year to see if I might need anything done!

        i've only been dress shopping once so far, and i'm just not convinced i've found "the one" ... hoping maybe to go somewhere else this weekend.

          I went dress shopping again today with no luck. Hopefully I'll find something at the Running of the Brides next weekend. I just wanted to have an idea of what looks good on me first.

            Don't get discouraged...

            When I was looking for a dress, it seemed like everything I *thought* would be perfect on me looked horrible. Not flattering at all. I ended up with the complete opposite of what I thought I wanted & it looks great. lol

            (I am still tempted when I see pics of the style I set out looking for though... ;-)

                I think I'm having my first fitting when I go home for Christmas and the dress came in this month. How many fittings are you supposed to have? How much time apart?

                  I'm sure I'm going to need to do something like that as well or I will be fiddling with my dress all the way until the day! I remember back in high school I'd try on my homecoming dress or prom dress a million times until the big day... LOL.

                    I don't know Casey. I was thinking of waiting till the end of January to start mine, unless there's not alot that needs to be done, then I'll ask the seamstress' opinion!
