Am going dress shopping for the first time tomorrow. Is there anything I should/shouldn't do? Would it be wise to wear a strapless bra?
Look up the shops that you're going to online and see what designers they stock. Print off any dresses that you like the look of - much easier than trying to explain it in the shop. That's what I did & ended up ordering the first one I'd printed off!! Yeah strapless bra is a good idea.
Think good underwear is a must it gives you a better idea of how the dress sits and will look. good Luck
Are you actually organising your wedding in 6 months?
Wish I could do that and get it over with!!
Holy cow, do people do this??
hey there, i just went on first dress outing 2 wks ago- great fun!didnt wear strapless bra, and i reallly shuld have!I had an idea of what i would like, but let the assistant put all styles on me...just enjoy it and go with the flow..have fun!
Yep, six months is plenty! I wondered about it at the beginning too, but got loads of encouragement from the girls on here to go for it & it's all just falling into place. Happy days! I'm fairly impatient anyway, so wouldn't suit me to have to wait ages after setting a date.
Purplehaze - I didn't wear a strapless bra either. Ended up just taking mine off & going without!! All the dresses I tried on felt like they had a built in bra anyway. But if I did it again I spose I would have the strapless bra on me already......
I didnt wear a strapless bra either and it didnt matter with the dresses I tried.Happy hunting.Im going dress shopping for the second time tomorrow.
Bring a strapless bra with you in your back incase you may need it. I just brought mine in my bag but I didnt need it cos i knew i didnt want a strapless dress....
Also make sure you are not wearing fake tan because alot of shops dont want remnants of fake tan on their dresses....
Good underwear is essential also & If you have any idea of what heal height you would like to wear on your wedding day just bring any of your heels from home because it can give you a better idea of what your dress will be like....
Hi sorry to piggyback on you thread quartz but I'm going for first shopping trip tomorrow too and Im bridcking it! I'm going to a couple of shops around dublin city centre that don't take appointments on a saturday, can anyone tell me if its madness on these days and if you actually get time/space to try on dresses?
Hi there mrs and mr, don't be worrying - you will have a great time tomorrow! I actually prefered the shops with no appointment cos there is a real buzz and you get to see other girls trying on dresses and its just so much fun!
