Looks gorgeous on you! 

Don’t feel bad about having to go by yourself.  The same thing happened to me.  My aunt was supposed to come with me to my first fitting, and she swore up and down that she would be there, no matter what.  She cancelled at the last minute (I was literally putting my coat and shoes on).  Strangely enough, I wasn’t upset, and didn’t tell my Maid/Matron of Honor or Fiance until I was already at the dress shop (it’s about a 40 minute drive from where I live).  My Maid/Matron of Honor wanted to drop everything at work, and come with me, but I told her that it was completely fine that I was on my own, and it was. 

That fitting was the first and only time that I got to see my dress on my own, and really appreciate it for what it was, if that makes any sense.  I didn’t have anybody else’s opinions to consider, and I look at the dress objectively, and it was really the first time that I had “the moment” with the dress.  I also picked out my veil on my own, pretty much the only bridal accessory that I picked out by myself, without any input from anybody else.

I think it looks great on you.

I didn’t know people coming to the fitting was even a thing. I was totally expecting to go to mine alone.

@nl:  That sucks that no one was able to go with.  I am sure they would all still love to see pictures, though!
