I think its totally fine you are shopping around. You could always tell the salespeople that you have a couple more places to look after giving your info. You don’t have to call and tell them when you find another dress. Its like venue or wedding dress shopping, they take you info but you can’t choose them all! Have fun!!!

hollysmith92:  It’s good to shop around and have options, I think most places are aware that brides do that, as brides can tend to me picky. No, I don’t think you’d need to call any of the shops to tell them you’ve chosen a dress elsewhere.

If your bridesmaids are paying for the dresses themselves though, make sure you’re somewhat aware of what they can afford, or comfortable with spending.
