How many dresses did you try on?

Just curious how many dresses you tried on before you found "the one." I thought I would have a pretty easy time finding a dress, because I've done so much research ahead of time and narrowed down the features I want. But I've already tried on 10 dresses in 2 different stores and don't feel like I've found it. What was your experience like?

    I had originally hoped that I would try on the first dress and it would be "the one". That didn't happen. In the end, I think I tried on about 6.

    It was the second one I tried on! I actually didn't even pick it. All in all I think I tried on 8 at two different stores, and went back to the first for the second dress. I am a VERY quick decision maker though.

    I probably tried on around 15. Keep searching, but try not to get "overshopped." I'd recommend taking pics if they allow it so you can look back at them again.

    I tried on over 30 dresses but I had a limited dress budget. If i allowed myself with a bigger budget, it would probably be a lot quicker and involved less dresses.

    I ended up getting one of the first dresses I tried on at a small dress shop at the first location. I went to two David's bridal, Alfred Angelo, and 2 other local dress shops before going back to the first shop and getting the dress I loved from the start

    I probably tried on around 20 dresses before "the" dress. I'd gone to 4 shops.

    19 dresses in 3 stores total. I had more in the dressing room to try on but decided to stop so I didn't confuse myself once I found the one I didn't want to take off Smiley smile

    I went to four stores (one store twice) and tried on about 5-9 dresses in each store. I found a dress I loved at the first store but kept looking under due to some peer pressure (Plus I will never admit it to them but I did feel that dress was more suited for a winter wedding). Then I found an even better dress at the last stop!

    Five. I went to the store to try on the one I purchased and chose four other dresses that were gorgeous to try on before I tried 'the one'.

    The dress I ended up buying was the 3rd dress I tried on but I wasn't ready to commit yet so I ended up trying on about 70 I would say before I went back and got my dress.
