Do you have that in my size?

Perhaps you are the woman whose always known what her wedding dress was going to be, or perhaps (like me), you have no idea, yet you know what you don't want.

Finding a dress can be a simple or a difficult task, it really depends on fundamentally understanding your body type and what looks good on it. I encourage you to try on many different styles/shapes/colors when you enter into a bridal salon - you really never know what is going to look the best on you. Firstly, stark white just about never looks good on anyone, but there are some really flattering shades of white, off white, champagne and the like that do. Same goes for different cuts - try sleeveless, strapless, with sleeves, ballgown, a-line, empire waist, silk, satin, lace, beaded or plain. There are so many options out there to choose from. Just try a few different things on and find a dress that a) you love and b) that's comfortable (this is important!) and c) that looks amazing on you. I promise, its out there.

Lastly, don't take an entire entourage with you when you are trying dresses - take a select group of no more than 3 people. Too many opinions will give you a headache and confuse you. Also, if the sales people try to push dresses on you that you would rather curl up into a ball and throw on the ground, don't try them just to please the sales person. Ask why they think its right for you and if their rationale doesn't convince you, say no thank you. They aren't going to be wearing the dress to your wedding - you will be!

Happy Shopping!
