I hate dress shopping. I have been to 4 appointments and have only had one positive experience.
I went with my mom and FMIL and my mother actually said "I don't see the big deal, she could just wear her old one (from my 1st wedding) and we just won't tell (FH)" to FMIL.
Another boutique didn't have anything I had picked out in their look book complete with the sales consultant telling me "that won't fit to try on" when I pointed to one on the mannequin, and I found it in my size by myself 5min later.
A third quoted a dress at 575 just for me to get to the checkout and "our bad, there's a 1 in front of the 5, it's hidden in the dollar sign "
I actually broke down crying because nothing has been fitting and consultants tell me to buy and then we can see what it would look like in the right size. Other boutiques are telling me I'm running out of time to even get a dress. FH wants me to be happy but going to any dress appointment now just seems like a chore or getting a root canal. I don't want to go anywhere at this point. I don't know what to do.
