Where did you go? Have you looked online at the different designers to get an idea of what you're looking for? They are all there and it's loads of fun to look. Maggie Sottero, Essense Designs, Mori Lee, Mon Cheri, Allure.  Even David's Bridal has an online website that you could look at. The thing is, just a tip, look at the US site. It has more detail than the Canadian site and the prices are all on the US site too. The Canadian prices are, on average, about $50 to $100 more than the US prices if that helps.

@@kcole123 - I am going shopping this Wednesday. To be honest, I am really anxious over it. I have a lot of body/self-esteem issues so I am afraid that is going to get in the way of me having fun with the whole experience. Let me know how the DB experience goes. Good luck  :)

You will definitely find one you love! Just be patient! I thought it would happen right away but I tried on numerous dresses and then eventually I just knew. I didn't even have my dress done up all the way and I knew it was the gown I'd be walking down the aisle in. You will get that excited / wow'd feeling! I totally didn't think I was going to. I mean all the dresses were nice, but none wow'd me until I found mine!

well girls another unsuccessful trip wedding dress shopping. I enjoyed shopping but didn't find anything that really looked nice on me or that wow'd me. I have an appointment with David's Bridal on May 10th. Hopefully I will have more luck. I do believe I will find something and I am still looking early which is good.

 

David’s Bridal is where I found my dress! The sales people there were way friendlier and more honest than any other shop I went to. Good luck!

@@kcole123 I went by myself the first time for the same reasons as you my family and friends live too far away :( it was fun trying on all the dresses, didn't find anything I like but I did have a better idea of what looked good on me..i don't do well with pushy sales ladies so I was stuck in the store for a lot longer trying to say no without someone to back me up.

 

The second time I took my neighbour ... It was a lot more fun! Obviously not as fun as having a best friend there but it was someone to laugh with, and someone to give you an opinion. Maybe you should consider taking a work friend on the second run. I ended up buying my dress from davids bridal though I ordered it over the phone from the US and never tried it on in store.

 

Good Luck with the hunt I'm sure you'll find your dress :)

@@kcole123 I'm in Calgary... I should make a work trip up to Edmonton and book some appointments and we can try on dresses together! I have my entire bridal party in town, but I think it would be fun to try on dresses without them pretending things look good when they don't only to appease me! Haha we could be totally honest for each other!

I also went to David's Bridal for my dress....they are really helpful.  I ended in a dress that I said I didn't like on the hanger but once I tried it on, I knew it was the one....so don't be afraid to try on something you don't originally like on the hanger! 

 

Good luck!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
