Beautiful!  I too enjoyed dress shopping alone, it was often overwhelming when other people went with me.

I did the same thing.  I was too tense getting too many different opinions.  Your friends and family mean well, but they cause more stress sometimes!  As soon as I went alone, I felt much better and was able to make my decision.   

I love your dress, great choice!

I found my dress alone, too.  I was never a fan of having a group w/ me when I go shopping.  I knew I was going to get a dress I liked anyways — no matter what other people’s opinions are.  The dress arrived this week.  I told my mom & sister and we are going together to get my final fitting.  I am also bringing the dress to my grandma’s house (she can’t walk very well) so we can have “grandma & me time” as I try on my wedding dress for her.

I only went shopping twice.  The first time I went with my friend, and if I had listened to her I would have gone home with a dress that did not flatter me at all.  Looking back on the photo of that dress I just cringe.  I knew it wasn’t the right dress for me.  I went back later by myself and it was the best experience.  πŸ™‚  I would recommened it to anyone if they asked what I prefer.  I’m glad you found the dress and did it on your own time and by the way, that dress is not only gorgeous but so awesome for you!

Great dress!

I shop best alone normally. When I go shopping with friends it’s mostly to socialize and I never end up buying anything I’m actually looking for but when I’m actually looking for a specific thing I go by myself.

I think it’s better to invite a big group when you first start looking and then as you figure out what you want take only one or go by yourself.

I live in a different state from my friends and family so I found my dress alone too!! It’s definitely not as fun to have a few friends in tow, but I didn’t mind it since I felt like it might have been a drag for them to watch me try on a bunch of dresses only to decide none of them were it.
