What is the protoccol for shopping for the Brides dress. I'm the MOB and she is an only child. I would prefer for it just to be the two of us, her dad and I are paying of the entire wedding and reception. I don't think the cost of the dress needs to be a topic of discussion execpt between the bride and us. She is insisting on inviting multiple bridesmaids, MOG, future sister in law, I'm thinking this will be a 3 ring circus and an bad episode of aTV show.
