    Remember to find something that will travel well. Most resorts/hotels will steam it, but it was very important that it was not too heavy to carry throughout the airports and didn't wrinkle too much!

    The best thing that I ever did was try on everything that looked like it might work! I immediately knew which dress was the one once I put it on! The rest of the formality or in-formality of the other details revolved around the dress I chose.

    Thanks Valerie….I did not know hotels would do that for you. I was planning on finding someone to do it. I will double check with hote.! Great Tip!

      My advice is to go to the shops and ask for their informal section. These are usually less poof and more lightweight, not to mention less expensive. It is so much fun to look online, but once you get into a couple shops, you will figure out what is most flattering to your body and what feels right!

      Mine is posted in my pic gallery if you are interested. Good luck!

        Another less expensive alternative, if $$ is an issue, is to look at bridesmaid dresses. Most of them come in white/ivory and look fabulous!

                I have looked at dresses online but I haven't decided on which one.
