I took my mother and my brother.  My mom was really excited and my brother is my “man of honor” and is always completely honest if something looks completely stupid.

I don’t like to count my very first trip because it was a nightmare, but I just had my Mom with me.  The time I actually consider my first trip I had my Mom & Grandma.  A few other people came along for other trips, but for the re-try when I bought my dress I had all 4 bridemaids, my other Grandma, and my Mom.

My mom, my younger sister (MOH) and my fiance’s mom.  He’s an only child and we’ve been together since high school, so I brought her along.  The trip where I bought my dress I had a lot more people there, though.

I only brought one person with me throughout dress shopping.  I went with my friend or alone the first time.  The second time I took my mom.  The third time I took my mom & dad and bought my dress.  This allowed me to see what I liked and then my mom helped me narrow down my favorites.

I brought my mom.  In retrospect, I wish I had also brought one trusted friend.  Final decisions were made on my own.  I don’t recommend more than 2 or 3 people.

My mama was the only person with me both times I went dress shopping.

I actually went alone my first time, it made it easy for me to figure out what I liked but it would have been okay to have maybe one friend along to get someone besides the salespersons opinion. I went a few more times with friends and family and made my purchase after going back with my cousin. It can be overwhelming with all the pretty dresses out there! Have fun!

I brought my mom and my sister the first time.  The second time I brought my mom, sister, and two of my bridesmaids.  I wish I would have asked my FMIL! I anticipated trying on dresses a lot more, but I ended up buying my dress at the second store.  My Future Mother-In-Law has all boys, so she won’t get to do the whole wedding dress shopping experience.  I think I’m going to invite her to my first fitting at least.

Just one person, my best friend who is also our unofficial stylist… Between us, we have enough difference in opinions to make up for my lack of bridesmaids thus far!
