Umm, I’m not entirely certain she has malicious intentions, here. She may just be trying to be supportive. If you just want to go with your family or whatever, just tell her you already have a group going. Honestly, I think I would just let her come, though. I don’t think it would matter too much?

I would actually say that its just me and my mom.  Not that she has any right to be, but I can totally see her being hurt if you said you had a group.

I WISH people would want to go with me.  I had to buy my wedding dress by myself…  no one went with me, not even Mom.

If you don’t really care either way, I would bring her!  But if you don’t want her to go, just say so.

I’d just tell her that your keeping it limited to family and the bridal party. After watchign all those wedding shows like SYTTD no way would even try to push that on a bride to be. If she wants me there she will ask.

It’s kind of sweet that your friend would want to join in on dress shopping. From what you said, I don’t think she means any harm and potentially only wants to live vicariously through your day. My sister-in-law is in the same situation (rushed wedding with little input) and I’m letting her do bits and bobs.
