    I agree!!! 

    OK I went to dress shopping with my bestfriend last w-e, I was exhausted, and came up with my 10 rules:

     

    1) don't rely on poster/ ad pics unless you are 6ft tall, and size 2.

    2) always try the diff style and color on you, because u don't really know what look the best until you try it on.

    3) don't expect you will look like the model, unless again you are 6 ft tall and size 2

    4) don't be afraid to ask...and try on different styles

    5) most of the brand name dresses are from China, so don't overpay for a dress

    6) don't take sales pressure

    7) when you are size 14, it wasn't the dress who is too big or gives you a belly.

    listen to your friends

    9) don't go overbudget, as other guests don't care about ur dress anyway

    10) go thru steps 1 to 9!

      Just one more tip...  try to find a dress shop that has a variety of dress in all sizes. It's hard to imagine how your dress will fit when you try on something that is nowhere near your size. If you are not a size 2, don't worry there are dresses that will look beautiful on you. Enjoy your curves. If you are a size 2, same thing, you will find something that makes you a beautiful feminine bride.

        YAY! My dresses are being shipped out tomorrow! I can't wait to see them. Too bad I will be stuck on the other side of the country when they arrive

         

        Monica Bridal had told me they would send pictures prior to shipping, but I didn't receive any yet. Maybe tonight?

            OH, and the golden rule, once you've found your dress(es), STOP looking! 

            Wedding dresses are like men, there are always better ones out there ..somewhere, but sometimes we just have to pick one and settle down.

                  lol i love it!  Good advice though... even though I found my dress I still find myself casually looking at others.  But you're right, we dont do that with our men... why do it with a dress!
