    I shopped by myself and it was great.  The consultant took photos of me and I emailed them to friends later for their opinions.  Nothing pathetic about it!

    I went twice with a girlfriend who’s also getting married this year, and a couple of times solo. I think both experiences were fine and enjoyable, but I actually think going alone and taking photos was a more valuable experience. I definitely felt like I could shop and browse at my own pace.

    I posted a very similar post as you before Christmas; I appreciated the Skype suggestions I got, but once I was at the bridal salon, Skype was the last thing I thought of, lol. I ended choosing my dress that same day and sent a picture to my bridesmaids. I was happy wirh the alone shopping experience. Good luck, and have fun! Dont forget to follow up!

    I went shopping alone today and found my dress. I was kind of sad at first that my mom is in Texas and I am in Pennsylvania, and that I didn’t have any of my friends with me either. It made it really hard looking at all the other brides with their entourages. Also other appointments were running late and that gave me time to feel sorry for myself. But I knew that I would be picking something I really love and not something I feel obligated to love because my family or friends like it. I tried on four dresses and bought #4, which was actually the one I thought I wanted before I went in. So shopping alone definitely works! And the consultant kindly took several pictures of me from all different angles to send to my mom. Win!

    @HeartsandSparkles: 

                  I shopped by myself. I loved it because I got to go and experience what I liked and didn’t like and than when I finally picked the dress, I showed everyone and said “here it is”. I didn’t want the hassle of opinions around me. I’m not really into wearing dresses so it was already uncomfortable as it was picking one. When I found it I just knew it was the one!

    @HeartsandSparkles:  Thanks! It sounds like we’re both pretty decisive (at least when it comes to dress picking). 🙂
