    My 2 daughters went shopping with me in August thought the dress they helped me pick would be the one. Took a close friend with me a second time because the first dress I chose wanted her opinion. Glad I did because I chose a dress that was a better fit.

    We got my dress from my moms co-worker who bought a super expensive dress for her daughter (who ended up not getting married) and she sold it to us for half the price! Still has the tags on it and everything!

    I had my co worker/bridesmaid go with me. I've only gone a couple places but ended up buying my dress through a custom site so I'm hoping all goes well and it's all I'm expecting.

    I opted out of wedding dress shopping, I’ll just order online.

    I went dress shopping with three friends. One ended up being my MOH, one was in our swordfight, and one is simply a dear friend.

    They were available and also know my past/trauma issues, so they were super supportive. They ended up treating me like a living Barbie doll and just threw dresses on me until one started to cry because we had found the right one. Then we all cried.

    How exciting Vivian! Do you have your eye on a specific dress or even a style of dress you would love to try on?

    How did you find dress shopping on your own? I know a lot of people much prefer to make a decision like this without input from others!

    What is your beautiful dress like?

    WOW, you certainly did have a big crew with you! I bet it was a lot of fun trying on everyone's different picks!

    How exciting to get to wear it on Saturday!!

    It really was fun but I knew that no matter how big of a crew it was, they would behave. No drama.

    I knew I wanted lace but no idea of a silhouette. So my FSIL put me in a long sleeve one... but it made me feel like a cupcake. I tried a few others that were similar to mine but mine just screamed "pick me!" Lol.

    I had a small group with me - just my Matron of Honor, mom and FMIL. Actually did end up getting a dress, at the same shop my MOH did!

    I haven't fully decided on this yet. I know I'm taking my sister but I'm not sure if it'll just be the 2 of us. My mom recently passed so I did think about asking my dad but I just know he'll tell me they all look amazing (which isn't a bad thing!) but I also want to see his reaction on the wedding day. And I don't want to make him sit through all that dress shopping. I may take some of my other girls with me. I guess it just depends on when I ask them to be a part of the wedding and when I make my appointment.

    My mom and two bridesmaids from my hometown came with me because the store we went to is in the town I grew up in.

    It's actually looks almost the same as the dress I was planning on sewing myself.

    This is the stock photo from the designer, I'm having the torso lengthened and a corset back added.
