Who Should You Bring Dress Shopping?

Looking for a wedding gown can be frustrating and beautiful all at once. 


This special moment is one that brides dream about for their entire lives and who they bring with them is very important. Brides are under a lot of stress and part of that stress is finding that dress of your dreams, the one you have been dreaming of since you were a little girl. 


That special moment, when you find the dress that you will walk down the aisle with is one that you will remember for the rest of your days. That is why it is important to think of who you want to bring with you. A lot of people would say to bring a family member or your mother in law but the reality is, you should be bringing whoever you are comfortable with. 


Find a person in your life that is honest with you, who knows your taste and who brings your confidence up. Trying on dresses can be very vulnerable, especially if you don’t know what you are looking for. A lot of people want to bring everyone they love however, from my experience that will only confuse you. Too many people mean too many opinions and it will be hard to get a large group to agree on something. This often happens and almost always leaves the bride sad and confused. 


The magic number for dress trials is three. Find 3 people in your life, whose opinions you value, who knows your style and have them, help you with the dress. You can bring everyone else to one of your fittings and still have a magical moment with those you love, however, it is not necessary to bring them all when you are looking for the dress. 


There is also a superstition that comes with showing the groom your dress before the day of the wedding. However, more couples have been shopping for the dress together. If you want to shop with your fiancé, there is no rule telling you that you cannot. Allow yourself to have the dress experience that you want. 


Don’t be afraid to hurt someone’s feelings, this special time is not about making everyone else happy, it is about you marrying the love of your life. Those who truly care about you will understand your choice and come the day of the wedding everyone will be thrilled to see you in that perfect choice that you chose with the perfect group of people.
