    Any advice? I know..I know..bring a camera. hahaha. I'll have my phone so I can take pics of the ones I like. Other than that, anything I should take with me? I bought a bridal bustier, so I'll have that.

    I'm excited! I'll have my maid of honor and her daughter with me (who is 13) who is my junior bridesmaid as well as FH's sister who is also a bridesmaid. So that should be plenty of eyes.

        My advice:
        Eat a little so you are not starving and grumpy while shopping. Don't wear make-up, it might get on the dresses. Wear underclothes that you are okay with the saleslady seeing you in. Try on things that "aren't you" or that you don't think you will like. Once you have them on, it may be "the one". Relax and HAVE FUN! And yes, the camera is a must!

          GL... The only thing I can add that hasn't be mentioned yet, is to keep in mind of how the dress would feel in hot weather. IE if your hot now, you'll feel like you'll pass out in Mexico.. Also if you have a bra you want to wear with your dress, bring that with you.

            Try on dresses that you wouldn't think you would like (but never out of your price range!) That's all I have to offer. But the eating thing is great advice, often I was starving and grumpy and just wanted to leave the store after being their for hours!

                I just went last thursday. I wore a pair of boy shorts from victoria secret and a regular bra. I should of wore a strapless though. I wanted a strapless dress and I had to keep taking down my straps. Your bustier should be good though. Definately eat, it's a long day if your going to multiple places. Goodluck and I hope you enjoy yourself.

                  Definitely try on different styles, especially those that you may not have intially considered. Also, listen to your gut instinct. If you love a specific dress but 1 person in your group isnt too fond of it, go with how you feel. Remember that its alllll about you!
                  Most importantly have fun!

                      Yay! Have a fun time!!! Bring a pair of shoes with you the same height that you think you may want to wear for the wedding, just to get an idea of how it will look. I can't wait to see pics!
