Ask friends to help you pick a formal dress

"A lot can go into preparing for a formal event. From finding the perfect gown to tracking down ideal accessories to picking out the appropriate makeup, putting together an ensemble can be overwhelming.

But instead of trying to do everything by yourself, ask some friends to help you out. A bit of support may alleviate stress and help you to enjoy the process of getting ready for a big night out!

And while we may not all be lucky enough to afford professionals, a good group of girlfriends can do the trick.

When looking for your formal dress, shopping online will make getting second (and third, and fourth!) opinions easy as pie. Simply compile a list of links for gowns that you have your eye on and email the document to your gal pals." makes this a cinch with their "Forward to a Friend" feature - you'll find the button under the photo of every product!
