The first few times I took a big group, big mistake.  The last few shops were just me, my mom and my aunt, again not a godo thing.  The final 2 shops were me and my FI.  Yes, I know that is not the norm, but I thought about it and the only person I really cared about opinion wise was him.

I had my mom, dad, brother, grandma, and FMIL go with me. I only went once and found my dress. For myself i took just the right amount of people. Just enough opinions, but not too many. They are all really important to me and that’s why I wanted them to go. My bridesmaids are all important to me too its just that they had to work and I wanted it to be immediate family to share that experience with me.

I have gone dress shopping with friends before and always found the more people there, the harder it was for the bride to really focus on what she wanted. When I went dress shopping I decided to bring my mom and sister. This made it so much easier because it was the opinions of the two people I trust most. Once I knew which one was my dress I went back with other family members/friends so they could see and help me with other decisions like what veil, jewelry, shoes etc to wear with it.

I wouldn’t bring more than 3 or 4 people. I had just my mom and MIL and that was enough opinions for me!

First appointment I brought 5 people, fun but confusing as hell as to what I wanted. I went once by myself to focus on my vision, and then brought my 2 friends from nursing school for my final appointment where I finally chose a dress.

I would say 3 people max to avoid too many opinions, and only bring supportive people who will give you their honest opinion (nicely!)
