    Baltimore, well Eastern Shore originally.... Today I am just going to Davids... I will hit some local bridal shops another day this week

          oh, and i second an earlier comment ... don't try it on if it's not in your price range!
          I agree with Ann on this one. I thought I found "the dress" until I saw myself in it a few days later in the pics we took.

                  I went to Davids a few weeks ago and the people were being weird about how many dreses I could try on! I hope I'm the only one that has had that issue.
                  I knew he was the man I would marry as soon as we met...

                    YAY!!! Good luck. Come back and show us pics and let us know how it went. I can't tell you anything that everyone else has not already told you. Oh, except if you are going to look for a veil as well, wear you hair as you would on your wedding day (ie. up or down or half up), that was you can get an idea if you like it and/or want to wear one. Make sure you do try on lots of dresses, even ones you are not sure you like. Its what I did, I tried on one that everyone did not like cause of a pin on it, and it was the one that everyone loved and said looked amazing on me. So, you just never know.

                      Oh I definately agree... try on styles you never thought you'd like. The dresses I've fallen in love with (so far!) are COMPELTELY different from what I went looking for. Try on every style that you have energy to try on!

                      I'll 2nd (or 3rd?) that comment about taking pictures and perhaps changing your mind once you see the picture. I've done that once. And try not to impulse buy! lol. There have been TWO dresses so far that I was sure was the one and almost bought right then and there. I waited, and went and tried them on again a few days later and totally changed my mind.

                      Same with the thong thing! lol. But I always wear nude-colour boyshorts.

                      Good luck, and have fun - a lot of fun! They completely dress you up like you're a princess... enjoy it! :)
