You will find the one that you will feel is "The One" and don't let people around you make you feel like you are any less beautiful!
    Thanks everyone for all of your great advice!! That's exactly what I needed. I am going to get back out there and will try some other bridal shops. I think a big part of the problem was that in all of the salons I went to, the salespersons did not really help me with putting on the smaller gowns. When I realized that I was unable to slip it over my hips I didn't even bother with continuing to try. In one place the salesperson kept running off with the clips which did not help. I plan on going to two stores today. I will let you all know how it went.

      Trini Bride... If you are in the GTA - I would recommend going to 'The Dressroom' On the Danforth (that is where I found my dream dress) or to Becker's Bridal... they have a fantastic selection, fantastic staff, and a great selection of DW Gowns....

      Good luck!

        I would try a different bridal shop. the one i ended up getting my dress at put you in your own private room so I didnt have to look at other skinny mini girls trying on dresses that looked gorgeous on them while i tried on dresses that were too small for me.

          I plan on going to two stores today.
          This is a great idea - I received much better service during the week because they are less busy and therefore much more attentive! Not all girls can do this, but if you can, I highly recommend it!

          Sometimes finding the dress is like finding the guy - you have to try on some that just don't work before you fall in love. Ok, that was a little corny, but you know what I'm saying!

            I am a street size 8/10 and I couldn't even get some to zip... so the majority cannot get the dresses to zip so don't worry!

            And remember that wedding dresses are altered to fit you perfectly. and that is why your wedding dress will look perfect on you! It doesn't start out that way, but the final result is AWESOME!

            Good luck and know you are not alone!
