it’s just nice to have someone there.  It’s the first time you are seeing your dress since you ordered it, and this time it SHOULD fit.  😉

It’s nice.

If it’s possible to get someone to go with you that would be ideal. It’s just nice to have help getting into the dress and an extra pair of eyes to look the gown over and make sure everything looks good. However, I don’t think it’s a necessity so don’t stress over it if you have to go alone.

I don’t think there’s really a REASON for the other person to be there other than emotional support. Plus, having someone there would give you someone to talk to while you’re being pinned all over the place.

To answer you’re question, I don’t think it’s important to have someone there unless it’s important to you.

Good luck!

My alterations aren’t being done at the shop that I bought the dress at, so picking it up and the first fitting are separate for me.  I had my mom there when I picked up the dress (though it didn’t really help because neither of us noticed a pretty big flaw in it, but theoretically we were more likely to notice things if there were too of us!).  But, I won’t have anyone there for the first fitting with the alterationist, because I don’t think it would really help…
