I would make sure to take pictures and if I wasn’t so indecisive and cared so much about my moms opinion I would have gone alone too. It is really a good idea, like you said, to see what YOU like. Don’t be afraid to try on dresses you might not normally try on. You want to see what all the different styles look like on your body so it will be easier to narrow down when the time does come to take your group with you.

I went alone.  I took pics in every dress.  I felt so much better bc I didn’t have the pressure of added opinions.  I know what looks good on me, what I like.  good luck and have fun!

I went alone for the first time and it was the BEST decision.  I wanted to buy the dress with my parents, but I live in the south and they are in the north so there weren’t too many chances.  I wanted to see what I liked and didn’t like (and I have also recently lost 20 pounds and I wasn’t sure how I would fit into the samples, but they fit great and were even a little big!).  I wanted only positive experiences when I went shopping with my parents.  What was funny was that when I did go shopping with the rents, my dad was the one who picked out the dress I ended up getting :).  <br /><br />I also suggest trying to get an appointment in the middle of the week when most people are working.  I was the only bride in the store, and it was SO relaxed.  I went on a Saturday with my parents and it was so much busier!

MeandMyLouboutins:  That is awesome.  I am glad it was such a positive experience for you!  Hopefully the next store has more of a selection for you! Keep us updated 🙂
