I haven't started looking yet but will likely go with 2 of my bridesmaids (2 live away) and would like to bring my mother... Although she doesn't seem super thrilled about the whole destination wedding in general - making it difficult for me to want to include her but maybe taking her dress shopping will get her more into the spirit.

I'm not sure how to handle this, but I don't want to go dress shopping with my mother. I live thousands of km away, so normally it wouldn't be a problem, but my sister just had a baby and I have planned a trip home to meet him. Since it will be the only time I will be in the same town as my bridesmaids I was planning to take them shopping for their dresses and possibly look at some myself if we have time. My mother got wind of this and wants to go shopping now. I love my mother, but I don't want to take her wedding dress shopping. She has terrible taste in clothing and terrible financial sense and I don't want her derailing my plans or trying to talk me into something out of my price range (We're having a very low key wedding, I want to keep my dress under $500) My plans are to look with my bridesmaids a little bit and if that doesn't work, go shopping with my future sister in law when I get home. I'm just not sure what to tell my mother. She will probably be very upset and pout if I just tell her I don't want to go.

I was thinking maybe I could do a second trip with just her or her and my sister if she wanted. And I will definitely have to tell her in advance that I'm not ready to purchase anything yet. Thanks for the advice.
It might be easier to not purchase since you aren't in your home town. I guess they could ship it to your house, but might be easier to buy at home if you have the stores, more selection.
I obviously don't know your situation but throwing out some ideas if you feel more need to justify your decision hehehehe

Have not started looking yet, but may go myself. I know my BFF will probably be upset with me, because I went with all of them, but I kind of just don't care about the dress. I would probably being okay with someone off the rack from Macy's or Bloomies. I just can't seem to see myself spending over $200 for a dress I will wear once. I think they are gorgeous and all, and I sure you all will look amazing, it's just not something I could see myself doing for me.
