    There are tons of website articles and magazines that breakdown suggested gowns for your body type but take those for what they are, suggestions not edicts.

    I feel the same way. I've tried on over 20 something dresses and no luck. Fortunately, after much discussion, my FH and I decided to elope and wear business casual attire. Therefore, I will be wearing a regular dress, which suits my body instead of a wedding gown.

    That sounds so discouraging I'm sorry! Maybe take a break from dress shopping for a bit. Focus on another area for your wedding and come back to that next month. I found that, especially a wedding planning, sometimes I get so overwhelmed with options that I can't figure out what I really want. The best thing to do is to take some time and clear your mind from it.

    I agree with pp - take a break from trying to say yes to the dress! And by break, I don't mean just appointments. Put Pinterest dresses down and try and clear it from your mind.

    When you're ready to get back to it, start with one appointment and, going in with an open mind, try on a handful of totally different styles - one possible anxiety point could be that you had a very specific look/style in your mind but when you tried it on it wasn't what you were expecting, leaving you in this limbo of "but this is what my dress was supposed to be". See if you fall in love with something new or unexpected!

    After that appointment, GO HOME! Don't keep shopping or overwhelm yourself! Think about the dresses you tried on and how they compared to some of your top picks from previous appointments. There are SO many dresses out there, and one of them will be just right for you Smiley smile

    First of all breathe. Secondly, its probably time to take a step back and allow yourself to percolate over your choices. Or just not think about dresses at all! There's so much pressure to find THE dress that people get turned around and forget that it should be fun. I think it was a bride on here that said she had so much anxiety shopping because she spent too much focus in whether this dress was THE dress and not enough time enjoying it. So breathe. The dress will find you when you stop looking - take a break and go back in with an open mind.

    Agree with all of the people who have said to take a step back! Wedding dress shopping can be so overwhelming and stressful and that is the last thing anyone needs. Once you feel comfortable looking at dresses again, try to think of dresses/clothes that you own and love the way they fit - what about that fit appeals to you? If you can figure out what kinds of fits and styles you like outside of wedding dresses, it may make it easier for you to focus on cuts and styles of wedding dresses that you like. You got this! In the end, you will find a dress that you love and you'll forget all about the worry and stress Smiley smile

    Dress shopping can be tricky, and sometimes I think it鈥檚 even harder when we think we know what we are looking for. Next time, start by trying a few different shapes, including those outside your comfort zone, and go from there!

    Please don鈥檛 give up. The dress that is for you is out there. I know that it is hard but you can do this. For me the dress that I thought that I wanted to wear is not the dress I fell in live and bought. Stay positive and you will find a dress
