    Also, you mentioned that the stores that had the styles that you prefer did not have them in your size, but they did have other gowns in your size. As a former bridal gown consultant, don't shy away from dresses because they are not what you originally envisioned. We had a lot of plus sized brides, that wouldn't take this advice from me until they were nearly in tears after trying on dozens of dresses. Then I would ask, "are you ready to try on the dress I have in mind for you, now?". It sealed the deal 80% of the time, since I knew in my mind what would look great on them.

      You are probably right...this weekend I actually tried on a few A-line dresses...they didn't work for me...but I am expanding my search.

      Thanks Julie and Stela...for the advice. BTW JUlie...what a cutie-pie you have there!! So cute!!

        Try not to stress...brides buy dresses less than a month from their wedding......I think they just say 6 months to be safe....don't worry you will find something you love!!
