I agree with you on this - I went to try on styles that I totally loved in pictures and when I actually put them on it was not at all what looked good on me! I am still searching for "THE" dress. I am getting so discouraged! Taking into consideration that this is my second marriage, it's going to be on the beach (and hot) and I am really not going to have many guests or any big celebration there, it is making it so difficult to find something that is "appropriate" and that I love. But I am still looking!

A lot of brides who ordered online got disappointed because the reality is a bit far from what they imagined at the beginning. Sometimes, they said..never a mermaid style, and found out after a trial session that..they look the best in mermaid style! I tried on numerous of tons of dresses and got very discourage (due to the ugly styles and my super tiny body that doesn't fit in a size 10 sample dress) before I decided to order online with a chinese dressmaker.
If you find a designer dress that u like at a deep discount at a bridal store like in a sample sale, just get it (if it is within ur budget)! So that u can have a peace of mind. Because order online is risky, and can make you very nervous.
