I went twice, the first was just me and my mom. But I knew I couldn’t make the decision without my sister. So the second time it was the three of us. I know there were plenty of other people who would have loved to go with, but there was no way I would be able to deal with that many opinions, haha.

First time was just my mom and I. Second time was Mom and my three bridesmaids. If Future Mother-In-Law lived in the same city I would have invited her too.

For most appointments, I had my mom and about 2 bridesmaids, including my sister.
When I finally did find my dress, though, my sister had gone back to school and was 7 hours away so she missed it 🙁
The most people I ever had at once was 4 I think. I didn’t really ever feel pressured or conflicted, but then again everyone I was with is pretty easy going and they know what I like.
I do think that anymore than 4 or 5 people though would make things hairy.

I only ever went with one person at a time. Once with my Maid/Matron of Honor and once with my good friend who loves fashion. I went alone too.
There are no rules about who you should take. Just take someone who would enjoy being there for you and won’t get too bored. There’s no point dragging the people you think you should invite out of obligation. They might end up distracting you or their boredom may drive you to make a rush decision.

I took 5 people. My mom, dad, brother, grandma, and Future Mother-In-Law. They really helped me. We all thought the same about pretty much every dress I tried on. They didn’t give too many opinions which was good. I had a blast dress shopping.

I took my Mom, my sister, and my aunt to try on dresses. When I knew I’d found *the dress*, and went back to buy it, I took my Mom, sister, best friend, and long time family friend.
