I AGREE!  Sorry your first dress shopping experience wasn’t very positive.

I went shopping with my friend and she found the dress she had gone to that store for specifically and tried it on…..well some other bride’s entourage decided to tell my friend that they didn’t like the dress and that they thought she could do better…..apparently they never learned that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!!!  She ended up ordering that dress and LOVES it!

I’ve never seen or heard that happen anywhere, so maybe it was just an off day. Most people are very nice when there are multiple people trying on gowns. I’ve seen plenty who have made me wonder about their choices, but I’d never say anything or make a face. There are rude people everywhere!

I’m sorry that happened. I’m not sure why people were being rude to you. Do you think they just weren’t talking about your dresses and you interpreted that as them turning their noses up? I’m just trying to figure out what they did that was so upsetting. The dad’s comment was rude and that first lady was obnoxious! Either way, people need to calm down and let every bride enjoy their day.

When I went, my mom and sis-in-law paid attention to me mostly. But they also looked around the room and commented on other girls’ dresses. They really enjoyed the whole experience and loved it when all the brides asked for advice!
