    I haven’t gone yet, but I’m just like you. I hate gratuitous attention and being fussed over. I can definitely see how a dress appointment would be awful that way.

    I didn’t like it. I don’t mind the attention from my loved ones, but I didn’t like the way some of them looked on me, which made me self conscious.

    I usually hate feeling stared at, but all the dresses looked so pretty and I had a lot of fun with my BMs so I would say I loved it

    i hate trying on clothes at all. I bought the first prom dress I tried on, I buy clothing most of the time without trying it on, I just HATE trying clothing on. It’s just so much effort haha. I’m so glad I don’t have to go bridal gown shopping, as I’m wearing my grandma’s dress with a few alterations. So I just have to put my dress on a bunch of times to get it altered, which will be ok!

    I went to one shop, tried on 6 dresses and found my dress straight away so I was lucky in that regard. I found standing around in my underwear whilst I was zipped up very uncomfortable. Also my mother told me I looked fat/pregnant and my arms were too big, so that didn’t help. Luckily I had gone just with my maid of honour to choose and we were just showing my mother the dress I’d chosen so she couldn’t influence my decision!

    Omg!  I hate trying anything on.  It is stressful to me.

    I hate trying on clothes. It’s exhausting to me. I went to 5 different bridal salons, 2 of them I didn’t even try anything on! I tried on a total of 8 dresses. The last salon I went to I tried on 5. My dress was the 3rd one.
