Hi, I'm still really new here but I wanted to see if I could ask for some advice. FI and I haven't started planning yet, we're still in the stages of gathering ideas for what we think we would like. I'm positive I want a blush colored bridal gown. My mother wore a blush colored, short dress when she married my dad. Unfortunately, the dress doesn't come CLOSE to fitting me (it's at least four sizes too small) and it's short. I would like a long dress, but in a blush color. Does anyone know any stores or designers that have a descent selection of blush/pink bridal gowns?
Also, any overall suggestions for bridal stores in the area? I was really interested in setting up an appointment with one boutique...but they don't offer alterations in store. Is that a deal breaker?
Finally, how far in advance should I purchase my dress? We know our engagement will be relatively long, but I have a feeling it could take a while to find the perfect blush colored gown, plus alterations. Suggestions?
