I was all by my lonesome and the sales associate pulled it. I brought back a friend after I thought it was the one to look at it as well.

I was all by my lonesome on my laptop.

I found my dress while browsing a bridal store online. Never tried it on. Just bought it and hoped for the best!

I was with my FMIL and one of my bridesmaids. I hadn’t even planned on buying a dress from a salon (just wanted to try some on and then buy a custom dress from Dressilyme or something), but everyone loved what I chose.

A really close family friend whose children were my FG and RB and then her mother in law came with because she was in town and helping with the kids. My mom was not there because the last time she went with me she completely demolished a dress I was in love with and I didn’t think it was constructive. After I decided on the dress – which the family friend found – my mom came to the store to see it and we purchased it. I made many custom changes to the dress though so the original dress isn’t even what it ended up looking like. I changed the entire silhouette!

I was with my mom, my FMIL, my grandma and his grandma, 2 of my bridesmaids, and one of my aunts.  The sales associate pulled the dress!

A coworker/friend of mine. I planned to go alone, but she said “I’ll go and be the honest voice. If it’s ugly, you will not get it!!!”. Couldn’t pass that up. She pulled the dress and it was the first one I tried on.

My mom, my MIL, and a BM. It was a good size group and everyone was really helpful. I think MIL especially appreciated being included–she wasn’t even with her own daughter when she bought her dress, so I think it was nice to have her there.

Just me and my mommy!  “The Dress” ended up being the first one I ever tried on.  I pulled it myself out of a catalogue!

I was with my sister-in-law (also a BM) when I first looked for dresses. It was the first dress I pulled while we were just browsing the selection. I didn’t have the initial ‘this is my dress’ moment- but we kept coming back to it! It took two more visits (both with my mom) before I actually bought the dress- but it always came back to the first one I tried on with my SIL.

My FI was with me.  I knew it was “the dress” when I saw the look on his face.
