How many dresses did you try on until you found the one?

I am curious! I want to know how many dresses you all tried on until you found the one. Did you go to one place? Five? Did you leave and come back? I went to two places, finding the dress at the second place (I had a gut feeling I’d find it at the bridal store I went to) I believe I tried on a total of maybe 10 dresses

    My mom, sister and MIL came to town for a weekend for wedding dress shopping. I booked 2 different places, BHLDN and DB. I looked at a total of 10 dresses, and the one I went with was the 9th one I tried on. I knew it was the one when everyone started to cry.

    I personally tired on about 10 dresses before I found my perfect dress! I had a morning appointment and then went to another place (last on my list) and then came back that same evening to buy my dress!

    I ordered my dress online without trying it or any other dresses on. I was a little nervous but it was perfect!

    My first appointment was at David's Bridal and i got the very first dress I tried on. It fit perfectly and no alterations were needed.

    Prior to heading to David's Bridal I started browing only and saved those that I liked.
    Then at my appt I tried on 3...saved my favorite as the last dress I tried on. And it was the one.

    I went to one Bridal appointment. I went alone, when I picked out my dress.

    I tried on three dresses...
    I fell in love with the second dress I tried on... nothing else could compare after that one, but I tried the third one on since it had already been pulled.

    I quickly put the second one back onSmiley smile I was done❤

    I went to two stores. I was undecided between two dresses at the first store. Went to a second store and found a third dress. Wanted to compare it to one of the others at the first store. When I went back to the first store, that third dress was in the window, and that was the one I picked! I tried on about 15 dress total.

    I tried on 20 dresses total and went to 3 bridal salons. The first 2 salons, I found one dress that I fell in love with at each one. I knew for sure at the time one of those dresses would be my wedding dress, but I was so indecisive. Then I went to a third bridal salon and fell in love with a dress there that I just said yes to the dress on the spot. I thought I felt that feeling you get when you find the one at the first 2 salons, but at the third one it was a different feeling- like I just knew that was my dress. And it worked out in the end and I even ended up saving a lot of money and stayed under my budget.

    My dress ended up being my favorite from the first store I went to, but I went to 5 other stores before I actually decided on the dress. I went back an tried on my dress 3 different times as well before I bought it. I probably tried on 50 dresses overall.

    I probably tried on ~25. But I love trying on and need to have tons of options. This was over about a month time frame at 5 different stores.

    I had a secret appointment at a salon in the city I live. I tried on 10ish there. Then I went with the women in my family and his family. We met in a central location and had four appointments. I ended up finding my dress at the second one after trying on 20-30 dresses. I probably tried on 40 total.

    I tried on about 3-4 dresses before managing to find the one at my first appointment. It's totally fine to take your time and think a while before making this important decision!
