My very first time trying on dresses I went with my BFF and thats it! When she went dress shopping for the first time, it was only with me too 😀

I went with my grandmother and my husband. I tried on 4 dresses and bought the 3rd one that day. =)

Well originally I wanted to wait to try on dresses until much closer to the wedding and when Mum would be willing to go with me, BUT I fell in love with the Alfred Angelo Belle 2011 dress, and when I was out with one of my BMs I tried it on! So the first time was just Bridesmaid or Best Man and I

Can your mom come? My mom has been the only one who went shopping with me so far and it’s been great.

I only went once (seriously, getting my dress and 3 BMs dresses took like 45 minutes) but had a whole crew of mom, and grandmas mine and his, 2 aunts, my sister and cousin.

I went with my Dad, my sil/bff, my niece/bm, and the two fg’s.  Bought the first dress I tried on.  I tried on like 20 but the first one made me ball and my Dad said he couldn’t take his eyes off me in that one.

I went with my mom, my Mother-In-Law and my godmother.. I totally ended up picking what THEY liked, so I had to go again to change it for someone I like instead… It was so hard to take their comments.. :S

I went by myself the first time I tried on dresses.  It was the weekend immediately after getting engaged!  I got an email about a sample sale, so it was just fate.  🙂

I went with one of my two MOHs, and I ended up buying a sample dress that day- so one person (other than sales staff) saw the dress before I bought it.

You may want to try on dresses alone, or with one girlfriend, so you’re not swayed too much by other people’s opinions- you could get a good feel for what YOU want.

I’ve been alone a few times and my first time was alone. It’s nice not to have other conflicting opinions, but it’s definitely a fun experience doing it with others.
