First what's your price point? Even real brides have budgets on the dress. Then what style are you going for? Modern, traditional...? Are you looking for an A-line style dress, ballgown, mermaid...? There was an episode of RuPaul's Drag Race from a few years ago where the contestants dressed as brides, you might find some inspiration from that.

Well I guess I dont have a set budget and I really want to go all out since this will be my first time.The dress? Maybe an a-line with straps? And definitely the shoes and full makeup too.

Vintage dresses are much cheaper. Consignment or used clothing stores always have some wedding dresses. You can also rent bridal dresses as well.

Thanks for welcoming me.  I would like to get serious about dresses, but I am not sure where to start.  Could anyone suggest a good place to go for dresses in the nj/nyc area that would be ok with me?  Thanks in advance.

I don't live in that area so it's hard to make a suggestion, bumping in hopes that another member can make recommendations.

I recommend following some MtF tutorials on youtube in regards to the makeup side of it. As told and said before me, males have square faces, whereas, females have rounded ones. If you want to get this going and looking right, it's best to learn to contour and have mastery at it. It would suck putting a load of cash into a dress just to not look the part, as well as having to redo the makeup so much that you risk getting some on the dress.

If you want to be convincing, I'd highly suggest a true corset with the dress. My shop does a real corset that can be simple or elaborately hand beaded worn externally, with a fancy (or not so fancy) matching bridal skirt underneath. I am not talking plastic-boned play corsets. I'm talking give-you-a-waist-and-cleavage-even-with-no-boobies corsets. :)  And we have a lot of cross-dressers, drag queens and transitioning clients.

Price point is huge though. And any shop should be able to evaluate your shape and give you suggestions as to what would be most flattering, if you need help with that. :)

oh, and there are a lot of MtF makeup tutorials out there...if nothing else, you could look at your favorite drag queen (I <3 willam belli) and just be a little less...drag-y. =p Or even get a makeup artist to help you.

    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.   
    • I think both of them are looking awesome. However, I like the grey more. I can understand how tough it is to go with a single option. I am also willing to get an awesome men graphic tee for my husband from here but it is getting tough for me to go with a single option because I like all of them. However, I shortlisted these two. What do you think which one is more good. 
    • At Spiceurbeauty, we use only the safest hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers which are semi-permanent only. The effects will fade gradually as the filler biodegrades but should last between 9 to 12 months. Excessive exercise or dehydration can contribute to minimizing the benefits of hyaluronic fillers. To maintain your fuller lips it is recommended that you come back to us on an annual basis or sooner for a smaller top up if desired and deemed suitable. The filler will biodegrade and be excreted naturally over time.
    • The Lip fillers that we use at Spiceurbeauty are manufactured with an anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment less painful as it numbs the skin. We would not carry out lip treatments without adding anaesthesia due to client safety. If during your procedure you feel uncomfortable, tell your practitioner and ask for a break Or if you can have additional topical cream
