Every girl dreams of that special “feeling” that she will get when she tries on the perfect wedding dress. Some get the feeling after only a few dresses; however, for others the search for the perfect dress can be much more difficult than they thought. While you may want to share this experience of picking your perfect dress with your friends and family, it is important to remember that this is your day and it is ultimately about what you want. With that being said, having fewer people attend your bridal appointment with you may be essential for you to find the dress that is right for you. If you are having trouble choosing between family and friends, here are a few tips to help you figure out who to bring to this momentous day in your engagement period.

First and foremost, you ought to bring your mother figure. Whether it be your mom, your grandmother, an aunt, or a mentor, you need to have a woman there who knows your likes and dislikes and whose opinion you trust. A mother figure is always going to be honest with you, but is also going to have your best interest in mind on this day. She wants you to look and feel as beautiful as ever on this special day, and will do everything she can to help you.

The Maid/Matron of Honor should be next on the list. Your sister or your very best friend- if she was important enough for you to ask her to be your Maid of Honor, then she is important enough to have at this appointment. Like your mother figure, she is going to give you honest advice, while also keeping in mind what you like and want in a wedding dress.

One or two of your very best friends should complete your list of attendees to your appointment. They will probably be your other bridesmaids, and so you obviously trust them and have spent a lot of time with them. These are girls who have been with you through it all, and while they may pull dresses that they like for you to try on, they ultimately want nothing more than to see you happy on your wedding day.

While this is a very short list, it is important to keep in mind just how stressful this day can potentially be. You are making a huge decision and quite a large purchase with this dress, and you will look back at pictures for years to come. Ultimately these few people that you choose to invite are going to be those who you trust without hesitation. They are going to be honest with you, without being harsh. They will probably cry when they see your face light up and you say “yes” to the wedding dress of your dreams. However, it is important to remember that at the end of the day, it is your wedding and you deserve to wear exactly what you want, and the people you share this day with should want that for you as well. Your bridal appointment should be a fun experience that will be a great memory from your wedding planning!
