I would definitely give the bridal salons you plan to visit a call ahead of time and give them a heads up.  I have found most to be pretty accommodating when they are expecting a large group!

Salons are just going to have to accommodate you guys- its her day and they should know she can bring as many as she likes. Maybe call the salons beforehand and tell them the story of the proposal + weekend so that they’re prepared? That would probably avoid any awkwardness. And I would definitely pull her aside and say what you said- she should not feel rushed and it sounds like it would be all to easy to get swept up in the emotion that day. I would say don’t even let her consider purchasing until she’s had time to breathe and sleep on it. Sounds like a fun day!!

Its cute that all the girls are flying in but I dont know if its such a good idea to go shopping together. There could be disagreements on bridemaid dresses or too much pressure. Unless its just the Bride shopping for herself. I think maybe the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bride should go together. But the girls can all go out and celebrate.

I went to Kleinfeld with a big group and it was fine.  I agree that your friend shouldn’t feel pressured to buy a dress that weekend, but, as far as size goes, the salons will have to deal.  I’m biotchy like that, lol 🙂

i agree with lambears that you call the salons ahead and let them know to be prepared – I think is she seems hesitant but pressured to buy a dress, take her aside and reiterate that you can come back and try the top dresses on again to ease the pressure
