    So we have set a date the venue is booked, He's picked out his suit... BUT no1 want's to come dress shopping with me!

    Yes we are renewing our vows and our families think its a waste of money, But its what we want!! And were still going ahead :)
    So the question is Can i really go dress shopping alone? Do people actually do this alone x

    I was going to go by myself, but ending up seeing a dress online and bought it! I haven't even tried it on yet!

    I went with our coordinator but yes, you can go alone..... Why not? To be honest, I hate shopping of any kind so I'd have been happy to go it alone xx

    You will have the shop ladies to support you and give honest opinions x

    Yes you can go alone. If it takes a while to find a dress then maybe some of the family will come around and you'll be able to take them x

    that's a shame no-one wants to go with you, i would love a chance to go dress shopping with my family members no matter how many times they have been married. i love your mindset and good on you if it's what you both want then they can stuff their opinions of course you can go shopping alone, there will be staff on hand to help you and to be honest they will give you honest opinions unlike friends and family will give opinions based on what they want you to wear and not on what you want or styles that flatter you more x

    yes, some people even prefer it as they don't have different opinions being shouted at them, go find the dress you deserve!

    I went alone. Picked outa few didnt like them. Found one, took my mum to see it and she loved it.
    I am one of those people who hates taking peoples advice withe regards to what im wearing, I like to just go with it and wear what I feel good in.
    Take yourself, enjoy it and hav the ladies working there take pics for you, if you find something you like ask someone like a friend or even your partner to come and see it. Have fun and good luck xxx
