Finding your perfect prom dress

So the question is "I'm really looking for some advice about how to find the perfect gown for myself. Help!". The first place I went was to google. That narrowed me down to about 1,500,000 sites. I found some great baseline advice to start with:

Six tips to help you find you perfect Prom dress.
But then i called my friend, Joanne, who manages a local Bridal and Prom shoppe to validate the advice.

Also, check out this very helpful video.

PENCIL YOURSELF IN: "This is going to take time. So make an appointment with a knowledgable salesperson and be willing to try on all sorts of styles. Do research ahead of time. Bring photos of what you like.

DRESS THE PART: "You'd be surprised how many girls go shopping for a gown in jeans and tennis shoes. Do yourself a favor and dress up. That means proper lingerie, heels, makeup, etc. You want to be able to see the full affect of the Prom Gown"

BRING A SMALL FANCLUB: "Bring a good girlfriend. Someone who will be honest and critical."

GO "COUTURE": "Buy the best gown that you can afford. You'd be surprised what a little extra money could get you."

HAVE FUN AND PATIENCE: "Enjoy the journey. It's not everyday you have this opportunity."

Here are some of my favorite prom dress sites:
Cinderella's Gowns
Prom Dress Shop
Find My Prom Dress
Bella Boutique

And just a few gorgeous gowns!
