i would have just told her that this was a bonding moment for you and your sister, and while you appreciate her attention, you want to have this special moment between the two of you.

This happens at bridal salons. people get swept up in the gowns that others are trying on and sometimes, they can’t help but comment.  Heck, I was on the pedestal once and told the woman on the next pedestal that she looked amazing in the dress she had on.  

Some small salons them to have the same atmosphere as a hair salon.  


i would have enlisted the consultant from the salon in your situatiocourage she could have turned the parents’ attention back to their daughter.

That is definitely odd.. they should have been paying attention to their own daughter trying on prom dresses. That would have driven me absolutely crazy if people kept commenting non-stop like that.

How strange, and rude!  I would have been flabbergasted, and probably wouldn’t have said anything either.  I’m really surprised the bridal consultant didn’t offer to move you to another fitting room, which may have given the family the hint to butt out.

Agreed, I would have done that in a discreet way.
