Dress Shopping- Opinions please!!!
Posted: Nov 11, 2008 8:14 PM

I am a young bride (18 right now) will be 19 by the day of. And I have a very specific idea in mind for my dress. I feel like I will never find exactly what I want, and although I have barely started looking I sketched out what I would absolutely love to have. If y'all can give me advice on what particulars would be helpful in locating this style I would really appreciate it. Or maybe I am just going into this with too much already decided in my head. I don't want to be bridezilla... and I feel like I am being judged for being so picky because I am so young...
Anywhom, I am trying to attach the photo of my sketch

I looked at your dress through your link because the pic you posted is not showing. It looks very nice though.


Just married!

I can't see your sketch, but try on all different types of things, because you won't know what looks best on you. I brought a pic of a dress I loved to the dress shop, and it just didn't look right on. The more open minded you are, i think, the easier it is to find something perfect. Start with what you have in mind, but definitely try all kinds of stuff.

I would have to agree with the PP. I had the same dilemma and couldn't find what I thought I want looking for. My Bridal consultant picked something out for me that I never thought would look good on me, and it turned out to be the dress I bought. So be open to suggestions, but don't go with soomething you really don't feel comfortable with because you thought it was what you wanted.

Have a good day.
