Maid/Matron of Honor is visiting from out-of-town this weekend. She hasn’t seen my wedding dress yet (the shopping trip where I picked it was just me and my mom). My actual dress won’t be in until June. She says she can’t wait that long to see it, so we’re going to stop by the shop so I can try on the sample for her.
That’s not a huge imposition, is it? I know the shop is v. busy (prom season), but I’ll just put on the dress so Maid/Matron of Honor can see me in it and not hang around for hours. And I’ll call ahead to arrange a relatively convenient time for them. Has anyone else done this?
Now I understand why it’s nerve-wracking to see your dress for the SECOND time. What if I don’t like it anymore?! We don’t have any pics from the first try-on; I’ll try to get some on Saturday. I’d like the all-important ‘Bee vote.’
Who else is dress shopping or ‘dress visiting’ this weekend? Posts and pictures, please.

It’s totally fine to revisit the dress! The shop probably gets that all the time. I would call ahead though, just so their expecting you. And yes, try to take pictures!
I haven’t “revisited” myself, but I imagine I would be nervous about it too! I’m sure you’ll love it just as much as you did the first time though.

I’ve visited my dress a couple times. The first time I called and they said to just stop in anytime during their regular hours and they’d find a space for me – instead of taking up a consultant room, they just put me in one of the alterations rooms. And they told me brides do this ALL the time. So don’t feel like you’re being weird!

That’s a great time about using an alterations room, Goldy!

My dress came in on Mar 5th and I went for my first “visit” on Mar 9th. They even told me I could when they told me the dress was in. And then on Mar 13th one of my BMs was down that hadn’t seen my dress and so they let me try it on again! 🙂
The only rule in my salon is no visits on the weekend because they are usually busy. However, the 13th was a Saturday and they just weren’t very busy!
If you talk to the salon they will tell you the best time to come in for a visit 😉
Can’t wait to see pics!
