    I don’t think having someone with you for your dress fitting is that big of a deal. I mean, you already got it! The seamstress is just going to fit it to you, anyways.

    No biggee I think

    if it’s your first fitting, it’s nice to have someone else there to opine if you’re indecisive and was planning on making changes other than just getting it to fit you. that said, it’s not necessary

    I’ll take the cop-out answer and say…..it depends.  Would you feel more comfortable with someone there?  I know I like to have tons of opinions and reassurance and a different set of eyes, so I would ask the coworker if i I were in your situation.  However, my friend went to all of her fittings by herself and preferred it that way! (Fewer opinions, you can focus more).  So I think it depends on what you’re most comfortable with – but you don’t have to feel obligated to bring someone just for the sake of bringing someone.

    I think you’ll do just fine on your own! Nothing to worry about … if it were me I’d just go by myself …

    Ha, lol

    you could always casually bring it up to your coworker like “oh bummer, my friend cancelled on my dress fitting, gotta go alone!” and if she says “oooo i wanna come!”, then you have a buddy =].

    Just know that she’ll probably just ooh and ahh and not actually make any practical suggestions. Do you think you’ll actualy change your dress at all? or are they just gonna nip/tuck it to you?

    I would take someone along that you trust. They can see things and give their opinion that you can’t and that the seamstress may try to convince you otherwise that maybe isn’t necessary.

    Ya, I think it’s not a big deal to go alone to a fitting, the dress shopping on the other hand, is better with a friend.  Unless you’re making major changes to the dress, shouldn’t be a big deal to go alone…Have fun!

    they may be able to wait till your 2nd fitting to change the neckline – if you want a 2nd opinion for the fitting.

    i made a big deal of my 1st fitting b/c i pretty much picked out the dress on my own.. but in retrospect, all the lady did was to shorten it and take things in a little. i did have a lot of fun trying on veils, etc to confirm my accessories.

    but that’s not something that you have to do at a fitting. i just wanted to play dress up and stay in my dress longer.

    My mom went with me cause it was my first one and I was very glad to have her there, just to run suggestions and take pictures.

    I think you can go by yourself, but I understand your disappointment cause you want to share the excitement with someone. I say ask someone from work. I would totally go if someone asked me to cover last minute. A day out doing something fun, than maybe go out to lunch or something.
