When you go shopping for the dress, you’re probably going to want some of your loved ones there who will be able to support you and help you make the right decision. But don’t choose just anyone. You are going to want people who will be supportive and honest. Those people must also realize that it is your dress. If you have your heart set on one dress, but they think you should choose a different one, they need to be flexible and realize that it is your day. Otherwise, dress shopping can be a very painful process. You also must decide how big you want your entourage to be. I wouldn’t recommend too big, as a large group can sometimes get unfocused or over-opinionated. Still, you’ll probably want more than just one person, just so that you’ll have more variety of opinions. Basically, I would say a group of 2-4 people is probably your best bet.
