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

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 :)
