Dress shopping tomorrow, any advice?!

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I thought that I found my dress months ago at Sak's outlet. It really is beautiful, but I am wanting to do all kinds of changes and alterations to it to make it what I "really" want. So, I decided to take the day and just go and try some on. I might find something that i will fall in love with that I didn't even imagine that I would like. (different body styles, colors, etc...)

I just hit around the 6 month mark until our big day, and I want to really surprise him!

Yup...camera is a must...we want lots of pics!

And wear some good underwear...no skimpy thongs....it's uncomfortable standing in front of a 60 year old woman who's trying to help you with your dress while you're wearing a thong :P Not that I've had any personal experience or anything haha

My 60 year old lady just had to suck it up and suffer through my thong - I forgot - haha!! Panties with a butt is the only thing I suggest - oh and a camera!!

Try on something you would never pick -- not heinous 1980's crazy lady dress but it you typically would go simple -- try a really elaborate gown...change out the fit -- if you go Aline - try a mermaid or a different cut...you might as well try them because those sometimes surprise you...

take tons of pictures and really enjoy it....oooh and if the ladies dont let you take pictures this is what I did -- I would send them on a hunt for a specific dress or shoe or something and then as soon as they walked away my friend would snap away...if you cant think of anything, ask if they have the catalog with the picture of the dress in it...

Leigh I beg to differ, I think you SHOULD try on an 80's dress and then post a picture of it for us.. Please, pretty please.. popcorn.gif

Bring an elastic for your hair. I remember I got super hot and needed to tie my hair up. All those dresses can be exhausting. High heels is another must. The dresses look better with heels on. A strapless bra always helps too

 

Good luck and please post some pics :)

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
