Shopping Trip

ok ladies give me your advice/suggestions/etc
Later today, I'm going to try on dresses. I've got 2 stops. First, Alfred Angelo and second, Tom's Bridal (a local warehouse type bridal shop) Ben's coming with me so, I will have him man the camera to get some shots that way I can send them to my mom to see.
So, I got a strapless bra and I bought a pair of undies that cover my whole butt. Anything else you suggest bringing? Words of Advise?

(P&R: I'm off to school, I'll check back in after my classes are over)

    Second the shoes.  Doesn't necessarily need to be your wedding shoes, but a pair with a similar heel height.

    I wore a pair of spanx and a pair of shoes.  Luckily, I don't need a bra.

    For my fitting when my dress came in, I wore a thong and a pair of shoes the height that I want to wear.  No spanx needed!
    Now with more wedded bliss.

    I don't get married often, but when I do, I do it in Las Vegas.

    I wore Spanx as well! I didn't bring any fancy shoes, because I planned on finding shoes to fit the dress. But if you have shoes in mind, bring them!

    Definitely have him take pictures, but don't look at the pictures too much when you get home if you buy a dress.  I know it's odd advice, but: I bought a dress at the salon, came home and kept looking at pictures of me in it (sending them to my BMs, etc), and the more I stared at the pictures, for some reason, I felt I made a mistake with the dress...thought I looked fat, frumpy, etc.

    I went back to the salon to try on the dress and LOVED it on me (thank god, because I had already bought it), but the poor lighting in the pictures made me second-think it.

    I was totally unprepared the first thing- thong, no shoes- what a mess ;)
    Sounds like you are good to go...have fun!

    Thanks ladies.
    Not planning on buying today. I'm going to go back without him, that way he doesn't know which dress I get, but I do want a second opinion [not the sales person's]. And I do value his opinion on these things.
    I didn't think about shoes. I'm gonna have to do something quick about my toes. I'm desperatly in need of a pedicure! Will have to fake it. I have no idea what kind of heels I want to wear yet. I'll just grab a random pair from the closet.
    Alright, off to take a Spanish test and get back home, shower and head on out.
    Wish me luck! [test and shopping!]
