I picture you in something simple and flowy (not poofy or too traditional.) Can you post pics of what you're thinking about?

I agree with Jen. What type of dress are you looking for? Maybe you have a designer you like. Find a store that carries them and start there. I loved Maggie dresses so that's what I did. I went to a store that had a lot of Maggie dresses and it was really easy after that. I still haven't technically had my dress on. I saw it online, fell in love and tried on similiar dresses before I ordered it. I couldn't find anything I loved more, so I ordered the dress I saw online. It should be here soon so I can't wait to finally try it on!
Good luck. Just be patient. It's not the worst thing you will have to go through. Kids & labor come next. lol

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

Odd because I always thought that this would be the best part!

The thing is that I like to try stuff on without a sales person breathing down my neck...I feel to rushed to decide if I like it or not and if I stare at myself too long in it I feel like I'm being weird and taking too long.
I didn't know that nordstrom had bridal gowns in their stores. i thought only online? I wonder if all the stores have them? I will try and find some online and show you guys.
Definately something simple Jen. Nothing too traditional and nothing too low cut and nothing too form fitting (big hips).

Do you know what kind of dress you're looking for?
Hang in there ... you'll find it!

I didn't get the feeling that this is the dress I have been waiting my whole life for, but then again I was never the type of girl to fantasize about my wedding as a kid. I loved my dress and am glad I opted to get a corset back wedding dress rather than the white sundress I swore I would wear. But I didn't put a lot of stock into trying on dress after dress until I felt like I thought I was supposed to feel.
Go with your instincts and it will work out.
BTW, if you call Nordstrom's they'll tell you which locations have the bridal salon in store, but beware - Nordie's salespeople like to get in the fitting room with you too...lol
