I only want to take my mom but feel so pressured to have more people with me! I feel like it's out-of-the-norm to not bring a huge group. But, I'm hoping that's just a skewed view from watching to many episodes of Say Yes To The Dress. 

 

On another note, Has anyone brought a male family member dress shopping?

@LauraM I only really went with my mom. Or that's what I really wanted to do... I did go with just her one day and then my MIL came with us the other day.

SYTTD has totally made the huge posse for shopping seem the norm, but it isn't. I think it's all about being on TV..

 

in fact, most salons will ask you to limit your party to 1 or 2 guests, as they simply don't have room for every bride to bring her entire bridal party. I'd certainly ask before taking a huge group to any salon to make sure they can accomodate you!

the other thing too, if you watch SYTTD, the bigger the posse, the harder the final decision seems to be just because there is so much disagreement on what the bride should be wearing! lol


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

    I'm not inviting my future MIL.  I love her, and she is close enough but I'd rather just have a trip with my mom (who lives in another state - I am visting her next month and we're going to try on dresses) and then again with my girls just for fun.  My future MIL hasn't even mentioned it!

      It's better for now to shop with your family members, as your family member know your likes and dislikes so they will better advice to selesct a perfect dress for you which your future MIL can not give for now...........

          Hi, I think you should go for shopping with your mom rather than your future MIL as you don't know much about her and also your Mother-in-law don't know your like and dislike but your mother can help you a lot in this regard. 

          So my advice is go with your mother and select the best dress for your wedding

          I hate shopping in general ..I know I'm a weirdo...but I find it frustrating because I don't know what fits my body and I have a hard time with pushy sales people, I am weak. The first time I went dress shopping I went alone... none of my family or best friends live near me..it was a bad idea! I almost got pushed into a dress that was out of my budget that I didn't even really like!

          The second time my neighbour went with me...she's a shopper and very fashionable! She stood up to the sales people for me and I had someone to laugh at some of the dresses with... Way more fun... Still no dress... But now I know what I'm looking for...third time is the charm right?

          My suggestion is take the person or people that you will have the best experience with...don't take people because you think you have to...don't take your best friend if she's pushy, don't take your MIL if it's awkward...take the person you will have the most fun with and will let you make your own decision but keep you from looking like a wreck!
