    So I have come back from a (almost successful), and very exhausting wedding dress shopping day, I went with my mum and sister, I was a little nurvous at first as my sister can get over powering but she behaved :)! We went to 3 different shops all very different and I got great Service in then all.
    The first one was very small and smelled a little but the lady was very nice and tried her best to get what I wanted, needless to say I didn't find my dress in that shop.
    So on to the next one. It was huge! There was sooooo meany dresses and the lady was so attentive and honest! Some people would find her over powering but I thought she was brilliant! I tried on lots of dresses I though I would like and nothing really stood out. But then my sister spotted on that was Totally different to what I was wanting, it didn't have lace or straps (I liked the lacy ones and wanted straps). It was very figure hugging with a not to low sweetheart neck line with a HUGE skirt! It was soooo poofy some thing I thought I would hate but it was gorgeous :), I looked and felt like a princess! My mum and sister liked it too, but it was a little out of our price range so I reluctantly took it off and after some lunch it was on to the next shop.
    I had been in this shop before as they had a designer day not to long ago so they recognised me :). I tried on loads I didn't like one :(. But then the owner of the shop pulled out one that was also gorgeous :). Again nothing like what I was looking for abc nothing like the dress in the second shop. This had straight neck line with pretty swirls on the top with a A line skirt and it looked beautiful on me and so different from the other one!
    So I have 2 dresses I really like that are so different I am very confused. I think I will have to
    Try both of them on again them decide. I am now exhausted! I never knew dress shopping was this tiering! Xx

    I was the same I have a princess skirt with a dipped neckline (not as low as sweetheart) I loved the dress on me but furthest from my mind to what I wanted.

    Give your dresses some thought and go back and try them both on again. Is there much of a price difference between them both? How much out your budget is the first dress you love?

    Glad you have found 2 possible dresses.
    It is exhausting, I remember finding it tiring.

    Love the sound of the first dress you liked.

    I was the same, I thought I wanted an A line dress full of bling and or lace. I ended up with a very simple classic ruched ivory silk taffeta princess silhouette with a sweetheart neckline.

    If you decide on the first dress that's too expensive you could see the if you could get a sample or second hand one, alternatively ask for a discount or extras thrown in like veil, tiara and shoes.
