I have planned and scheduled my first overnight dress shopping trips. My mom and fiance’s mom are going and one of my bridesmaids will meet us there. Both moms have their vision of what they’d love to see me in, although I have told them I have my own vision for myself and will be going with that. I hope they wont be overbearing and will just give me their opinions about the dresses I want to try on and not try to get me to try on what they want me to. I’m glad my bridesmaid is going bc we have the same taste and always agree on clothes, so I’m hoping she will be able to help me with them as well:) Any suggestions on how to keep this under control without coming off as rude? I’m hoping it will just go smooth but not sure. How did your trips go with the moms?
Thanks in advance,

Sounds like you have this under pretty good control. I’d talk to your 2 moms and Bridesmaid or Best Man before you start dress shopping and clue them in on what you’re looking for, and try to get everyone on the same page prior to the appointment.

I’ve been to all my fittings on my own! I Know this seems madness to some ladies but at the end of the day the only opinion that counts is your own. The sales assistants would tell me of their relief when on the rare occasion a girl would turn up alone. The bottom line is that you’re not gonna be able to please everyone, follow your heart and keep an open mind at all times. The dress I’ll be wearing on my wedding day was practically forced on me by the sales girl, it was only when I tired it on that I fell in love, had it not been for her I’d probably still be searching. Good luck and enjoy x
