    I actually went dress shopping for the first time last weekend and there were 6 of us.  I invited all of my girls but thank goodness some of them couldn't come!  I found it to be totally overwhelming and not fun!  I would recommend not taking that many people.  My entourage was very supportive and nice, but I couldn't gather my own thoughts because there was just too much chatter between all of them and the sales lady.  I went back to the bridal district on Tuesday but this time by myself.  It was a much better experience as the stores weren't busy and I could gather my own thoughts.  I then took my mom back on Wed. and bought the dress.  Lesson learned= only shop with 1 or 2 other people!!!  :)

      Thanks for the advice :) I was thinking of bringing 4 people along with, I might be rethinking that now, lol :)  I guess splitting them up into a couple trips might be okay :)
