Hi going shopping for my dress in the next month. I am looking forward to it more now that I have lost a little weight :)

I felt relieved and excited at the same time. I really didn't want to do the 'go round the shops trying dresses on' thing as I absolutely hate clothes shopping and had ordered mine from Debenhams online. When I tried it on it was exactly what I wanted. :)

I tried one on at a wedding show and loved it but it was way too early to buy one for my wedding. When I went shopping I found out that the company went bust so I couldn't have that dress. I did however find one similar but even better but tried on a lot of ones that weren't right first. I still haven't ordered one and will go again, don't feel pressured into buying one until you know it's right

The dress I wanted when I saw it on someone else looked awful on me I'd had my
Heart set on it for a few months but it just did nothing for me. BUT I then tried on another dress & it blew me away it looked amazing in & I just knew that was THE dress!

I found my dress yesterday on my fifth trying on session 🤗 I was sceptical about finding the one as I loved so many dresses, they are all beautiful! But when I put this particular dress on I just felt beautiful and comfortable, bonus!! I cried, and it's not like me to cry over a dress! I think it was relief, happiness and overwhelming emotion that this was the dress I was getting married in ☺
Happy dress hunting, enjoy the experience x

I had a short tea length dress that I was dying to try on. It looked awful!

In contrast another dress I'd seen, and just had to try on, was only available in a size smaller. Despite it not fitting, the moment I put it on I knew I had to have it. I didn't want to take it off, I was actually looking in the mirror, something I hadn't really done with the others

Mine wasn't at all what I expected, the girl brought it out and said just try it on, and when I got in front of the mirrors it was like pleasant surprise, and I kept twirling around in the skirt She said people do that when they're happy! It felt really comfortable, like I could be in it all day (which was the deal breaker for many of the others - I couldn't breathe or they were too heavy!) and it just felt like me You'll know it when you have it on, just try everything! Good luck!

I cried, literally sobbed my heart out. It was just perfect and nothing I had imagined and I feel like a bride in it.

Very excited. Don’t worry if the one you like isn’t it. I loved an Edwardian vintage lace dress. However once I tried it on it just wasn’t me. I tried on lots of different styles and had lots of fun. Then found the one. It looked nothing on the hanger but once it was on it was the dress.

But Finally cracked it !! ...... And just to make sure I took 2 girlfriends on the 2nd viewing to double check & their WOWS made it so ! ..... Warm wishes for finding yours , love Sarah x

I am going dress shopping next month and I already know what shop I'm going to. I'm obviously excited but I'm also nervous because I know what style etc that I want and I'm scared they won't have what I'm looking for or I won't find anything, I guess that's part of it I'm sure it's super relieving when you find the one you want

You have to keep an open mind when you go! I was so nervous and I had this dress I'd seen that I was completely in love with, but when I tried it on it did not flatter my figure at all. That same day I found the dress that flattered me completely but I also fell in love with it, more than the one I'd seen. Good luck!

I felt very nervous going dress shopping and was relieved when I found my dress on the first shop. Try on a variety of dresses, I used to be a wedding coordinator and I don't know any brides that chose the dress they thought they wanted - I myself am included, I went for almost the opposite of what I thought I wanted.

I felt a bit overwhelmed if I'm honest. It all felt a bit surreal. I knew it was the one as it looked stunning and my mum and auntie cried. My sister frowned at every dress I tried on until this one and her face lit up like the Cheshire Cat. I then went home and worried I'd rushed the decision but when I tried it on again for my accessories appointment I got really excited and remembered why I'd chosen it. I also went to a bridal show a few weeks ago and there were loads of dresses there. I didn't like any of them and then I spotted one that I thought looked gorgeous and realised it was almost identical to my dress with a slight difference. I just made me remember how much I love me dress and confirmed I'd found the one.
