    I don't know if anyone looks forward to it prior to going. I was too scared everything was going to look bad on me. I am a pretty casual dresser normally, but I also like to get spiffed up (Yes, I said "spiffed up" hahahaha). But once I went out and saw that the majority of them look beautiful on, it was alot more fun. I mean, I don't want to ever have to do it again, cuz I hate the interaction with a woman that you don't even know dressing you and all, but once it started, it was fun while it lasted. But I am glad it's over.

      Isn't it relieving to know your done?

      Thanks. Oh, by casual I meant more casual than a typical wedding dress. My first one was just plain casual & I didn't feel right in it. I definitly feel dressy in this one. But, I knew I wouldn't feel comfortable with a train & a full dress.

      Taking the digital pictures in the dressing room helped A LOT for deciding. I felt so torn between what I should do, so I showed a friend the pictures & the choice was clear. I definitly like help for making decisions, but I prefer to shop alone.

        I was you 6-7 months ago. I adore my flip-flops and jeans, and I did not want the dress to be a big expensive deal.

        I was going to do a simple summer dress in white, and I ordered a cotton dress from J Crew, but it was WAY too see-through and didn't look that great on me and then my mom and sis (and even FH) said I should do the dress trying on thing just to do it-to have the complete experience so I wouldn't later feel like I missed something.

        So I did, I dreaded it because I am definitely not a sample size, but the sales ladies (I actually only had one who really helped me with dresses and "attended" to me) were all perfectly nice to me, and surprise, surprise I ended up falling in love with something totally traditional, and I'll still be wearing my flip-flops with it.

        When you do go just have fun with it and trust yourself to know what you want, and don't worry about it too much in the meantime.
