I would say it depends on your Future Mother-In-Law and your relationship with her. Will she be supportive and give good opinions, but let you do your thing? Or will she be pushy or unsupportive?

Don’t take anyone that you even remotely don’t want to take! I had a secret first visit by myself and still have never told my mother! It was important for me to have a moment alone to just try things on in peace. And my mom’s great – but I still needed my moment. I’m so glad I had this. So – its your day and you need to do what’s best for you.

Oh – also – I told the lady my budget was $600, and she brought me in at $550 WITH a flower for my hair. So it can totally be done! I hated my arms too, but I found a rockin dress that I feel sooo amazing in. Good luck!

I got an amazing dress at David’s Bridal and it was $500.  Its seriously the dress of my dreams.  If you aren’t going to a super high end designer store, you will find a fab dress in your budget!  As for who you are going to bring, I agree with Jamcnair.  Don’t bring someone if you aren’t 100% comfortable with them being there!  That being said, I brought my Future Mother-In-Law (she has 3 boys, no daugters) and she was so touched that I invited her to come, she paid for part of my dress!  Not saying you should invite your Future Mother-In-Law so she’ll pay or anything, but if you have a good relationship and it would be meaningful to her, consider it!

Also go easy on yourself, we all have features we don’t love, but try not to focus on the things you don’t like!  I promise that when you are in a wedding dress no one will notice your arms!

Good luck on your dress hunt!
