1. Because (as I understand it) all wedding-dress lines run small, am I totally screwed if I'm actually a 24 in regular clothes? Like, will I need to wear a 28 or 30 and therefore be sized out of most bridal shop stuff?
2. Are you supposed to buy the undergarments before you go dress shopping (to check how they work under the dress) or after?
3. Is there a bridal shop in the New York area you'd recommend? I'll go anywhere--New Jersey, Philadelphia, CT--for a nice experience and a decent selection. If you know of a great one in Chicago I'd take that too!
