If you think you could buy a dress without their input, then go without them!  I’m sure they all want to go with you, but they’ll understand, and it’s possible you won’t even find anything you love, so you might have to go again.

I would probably go without them.  I think you’d regret missing the sale and I’m sure your BMs will understand.  I also think it’s good to go dress shopping at least once by yourself and this sounds like a perfect opportunity.  Going by yourself gives you a chance to clear your head and not be pressured by anyone else’s opinion.  And if you do find something you like, your BMs can always come to the fittings and help pick out a veil or sash or whatever.

Good luck and happy dress shopping!

Go! There’s no requirement that you have to go dress shopping with anyone in particular. Bring another girlfriend if you’d like feedback.

Yea, I would go without them. You could snatch up your dream dress at a steal, which would make it all worth it, and they would understand.

@kmarie719:  The Maid/Matron of Honor would have a hard time going Thursday or Friday, and Saturday is the day before her birthday so I feel a little selfish asking her to take time to go on her birthday weekend.

I’d ask her anyway – she might really want to go with you.  Give her the option, don’t make the decision for her.

Definitely go check it out!  You might find a dress that you absolutely love for a fantastic price.  And if you find dress you’re willing to buy at the sale and they end up disliking it, you can resell it at preownedweddingdresses or somewhere else, or maybe even use it for a trash the dress session!

Ask the Maid/Matron of Honor if she wants to go and if she can’t then ask anyone else if they’d like to go. If not; go by yourself. It’s not horrible to go alone (I did).  You might end up with a fantastic deal.

Offer the option to your Maid/Matron of Honor but just dont pressure her. I say go no matter who can come. Shopping with more people is just painfull in my mind.

I definitely think you should go. Why not?


Just be warned though that I thought I could shop without my girls and failed miserably. I had to pay for them to come into town the next weekend, just because I couldn’t make the final decision without them.

I would say go especailly if you mom is going. I went shopping a few times, once with a whole crew of friends and it was fun but I couldn’t decide on anything because everyone liked something different. The last time I went it was just my mom and I. I walked out to show my mom the dress I loved and my mom started crying. Both of us loving the dress made it so much easier to decide for me.

Definitely dont pass up a sale! You can always send them pictures for their opinions!

I found shopping alone SO much more enjoyable, especially when working with a knowledgeable consultant.  When I shopped with friends, there were too many cooks in the kitchen and my voice got lost sometimes.
