Going Dress Shopping for the first time

Recommended Posts

today...Alone! I just want to revel in the fact that Im actually shopping for my wedding dress. I want to wrap myself in that feeling and have it for myself. Does that make sense? Did anyone else go alone the first time?

Have a blast! I went shopping the 1st time out by myself as well. In fact, I usually go by myself...altho a few weeks ago, I did go shopping with a friend.

 

Remember to keep an open mind and try on everything. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted, but ended up liking things I would not have dreamed of wearing.

 

Have fun! smile29.gif

You know I first thought ok, I'll only try on the mermaid style dresses b/c that's what I want. Then I decided no, I'll try on a lot of different styles, even the big poofy princess kind. Im going to just be open minded and have fun.

I normally like going by myself shopping unless I am not buying for myself.

 

However I would like to go with someone else for their opinion. However I am the type that if I am out once weekend and pass by a bridal shop and have time...I will just go in.

 

I haven't officially looked yet but I did go in davids bridal one day already by myself because I was in the neighborhood.

My mother was in town to visit so I made sure to do my first dress shopping when she was here so that she could be a part of it. A couple of friends went too. I loved having them there and seeing their impressions when I walked out of the fitting room. It was definitely a weird but great feeling. It makes it all seem so much more real.

 

I also agree that you should definitely try on all types of dresses. You might be pleasantly surprised. I told the lady at the shop that I didn't want lace, beads, ruffles or bows. The dress I liked the best had some of the elements to it. You just never know.

My only advice would be to NOT try on anything out of your price range. I am totally in love with a dress that is about 3x what I wanted to spend. And everyday that goes by, I am more convinced that I am going to buy it. I love it, but wish I never saw it, cuz I also found a perfectly lovely dress in my price range! Good luck!!!!

I did not, but be sure to only try on a few... it can get overwhelming :)

If they let you take pictures, then have them take them for you so you can remember what they looked like.

 

Have a great time!!!

I think I would go by myself the first time also (even though I would be so nervous). This way I could get a feel for what I like and then go later with someone special and get their opinion. I would hate to go the first time and have different opinions interfering...that can get stressful.

 

Good luck with the dress shopping and def take pics if they let you so that you can post here.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
