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!
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?
