    It isn’t necessary. Everything we do as the bride doesn’t have to be an event or production. Just invite and grab the people who are available and go pick up your dress. The others will see you on your wedding day.

    Ya it’s really no big deal…you are just picking up a dress. It’s not like you are picking out your dress, that is the important part.

    It shouldn’t matter and I doubt it would phase them either way.  If my BFF asked me to go with her, if I could get there, I most likely would.  If she went by herself or with another friend, it wouldn’t bother me either.

    I don’t think this is an ettiquette issue, more of a ‘whatever floats your boat’ one, but it’s not necessary for them to be there, and if you parents haven’t seen it yet, they might enjoy having the time spent with just you.

    I can’t imagine most BMs really wanting to go. I don’t think its necessary to have an “entourage” to pick up a dress.

    I didn’t invite any of bridesmaids to go with me to pick up my dress or to my first fitting!

    I agree – I don’t think it’s a big deal one way or the other. 🙂

    The bridal salon is the one place where I don’t bring my entourage Wink

    NBD.  If one of my friends asked me to spend 4+ hours driving with her and watching her try on a dress I’d be all “yeah, sure….you buying lunch?”  

    It’s your dress, you just need to try it on and get measured.  If you need someone to tell you that you still look awesome in it, take your bff who lives near the shop. It’s really no big deal until you get dressed on your wedding day though.
