Shopping for your wedding dress can be one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning, however, it can also become quickly exhausting! Some lucky folks find ‘the one’ within the first couple of try-ons. For others, it may take a little more time!

    I think I tried on close to ten. 4 or 5 at my first appointment, probably 2 or 3 more when returning my first dress, and then 3 from Azazie. The first one I tried from Azazie was the one for me!

    I think I tried on around 30 dresses between 3 different appointments. Two appointments by myself to narrow down my style and then one appointment with my parents and Mother-in-law.

    Maybe a dozen? At my first appointment I tried on either five or six. At my second appointment I tried maybe five or six. The first dress at my second appointment ended up being the dress I bought. It has straps and when I put it on it liked it, but didn't love it. I tried on a few more then the girls and my consultant had me try the first one on again and tuck in the straps as if it were strapless. Once I could imagine it the way I wanted it to be, I knew it was the one.

    I tried on about four or five but knew the first one I tried on was the one. I was “only trying them on” but ended up finding my dress.

    If I'm being completely honest I probably tried on 20+ dresses before I found mine!

    I did Smiley sad but I was able to give the first dress to a friend of mine who knew someone less fortunate who could use it.

    I went to three stores and tried roughly a dozen dresses before I found mine! I think the key is to narrow down the style and fit that you want before you go.

    Aw man, that was very nice of you! I bought my dress yesterday but my mom n sister liked a different dress which I also loved but leaned more towards my dress. It's made me doubt my decision, also doesn't help that a family member called the dress I picked out cute.

    I tried on 8 dresses before I said yes to the dress.

    I think around 4-6. I bought my dress first appointment. I had been eyeing it online for months, and it was perfect when I tried it on.

    I think I tried on about 8 dresses since I’ve been engaged. I was lucky to find my dress at the second bridal shop I stopped at (shoutout to Bridals by Lori and everyone there!).
