I say go to one more bridal salon, if you still end up thinking about the other dress you will know it’s the one.

Go to a couple of shops on your own. I was alone when I made the final decision on my dress, and I think it helps.

When my mum came to see it, she wasn’t as immediately wowed as I’d hoped, but by then I knew it was my dress, so she came round pretty quickly. 

You’ve still got some time, and going alone can help you to focus a bit more. Then if you still love this dress, go back and buy it, safe in the knowledge that it’s the one you love.

@WhiteRoseRed: I think you hit the nail on the head.  When I shopped with my mother, I was really influenced by what she liked.  Looking back at those pictures, I really didn’t like those dresses.  I had to go alone to “keep out the background noise”.

@Tswife4ever: You still have several months before you have to make a decision. I would recommend you keep looking.  You will probably find lots of dresses you really like, but one will call out to you.  I had a lot of indecision too, but when I found the dress, nothing else could turn my head.

I feel the same way! I’ve gone twice, once with a friend and once with my mom. Both steered me towards things they like and away from things they didn’t. I’m going shopping with FI’s mom (and maybe sisters) in a couple of weeks. I’m sure the result of that will be the same… My first two trips resulted in me finding dresses I really like but not “the one”. I think for final decision time I’ll go alone, that’s really good advice!
