    A few pages back, a couple people had suggested going into a store to try on dresses before ordering one online... and now that I've finally gone into a store, I have to say... you were SO right!!  What I thought would look good on me made me look shapeless... and what I thought wouldn't look good made me look fantastic.  Such good advice, thanks ladies  :)

     

    Now that I know what works... off to search for my dream dress online lol.  Time to dig through Monica Bridal's dresses again!

      It was the same thing for me! You know you are not limited to their selection right? Pick any dress on the internet that you like and send it to them and they will tell you if they can do it or not. Good luck with your search! :)

        The more I try to find a dress that I like enough to order the more indecisive I become. Pretty much everything looks good, but nothing stands out in my mind.

          You really need to try some on Mocha.  I found that narowed things right down as some dresses just did not match my body shape.  Good luck.  Trying is a process in itself.

            cookie - i totally agree.  i had my dream dress in mind that i was going to get a replica of, but when i tried on that style, it was HORRIBLY unflattering on me!  trying on is key!

              Marzm - I've tried on a ton of dresses, probably abut 50 - 60 at several different stores and all kinds of different styles. There's been lots of definitely no's and a couple where I like one aspect such as the top, but not the bottom. But overall nothing. That's why I was planning on going the custom made route, to get what I want and not have to compromise.

                well, I officially no longer belong on this thread lol.  Went to a bridal show today and fell in LOVE with a dress that was being sold by one of the vendors there.  I tried it on, and it fit perfectly!  Bought it off the rack so got it at a great price... I have my dress!!  Yay!!   :D
