At first I thought, no, you should just find inspiration online and then go to your appointment. However, I actually think that’s a really good idea. Can you make an earlier appointment at the same salon? I wouldn’t go without an appointment just so you get plenty of attention, but it would be good for you to eliminate styles you don’t like, that way when your mom and friends will be there, you can straight up tell them no if they suggest trying a style you know you don’t like and you can focus more on narrowing down your favorites.

I went 4-5 times solo and brought the bridal party to the last 2 spots (each at different places). I found it was a huge relief, because there were many where I told the girl “don’t even zip it up” because I knew they weren’t flattering. I vote go first by yourself and save yourself the hassle and everyone else’s time.

I loved shopping myself.  We tried on more dresses and different styles.  I went with friends to my first two and it was fine but I much preferred by myself (which shocked me!)  I would go by yourself and try a bunch of different styles and narrow it down like PP said.  At the end of the day, its your wedding and you are wearing the dress, so you need to love it – not anyone else but it is nice to get feedback!

ctinaxox:  I went with a thought in my head of what I wanted. I went with my sister three times. THe first time was for figuring out what looked good since my dream dress didnt give me that moment. Beautiful dress for a different bride. It was nice being able to talk with someone and figure out what kind of dress to get.

I went by myself! It was so relaxing. I had plenty of time to figure out what I wanted without other people’s opinions in my head. When I picked out two I liked, I brought my parents along for the final decision. Definitely recommend!

ctinaxox:  Absolutly! My planner advised me to do that and I’m glad she did! It gave me an idea of styles that looked good on me. If you like on better in the first appointment you can always go back and get it after the second.

I prefered solo. I’ve been to maybe three or four ..or five lol appointments alone and they were always more peaceful than the one time i didn’t.
