    I have no idea lol. Definitely more than 10. I finally found my dress and it was nowhere near what I thought I would end up with.

    I tried on somewhere around 20 dresses. I ended up saying “yes” to dress number 2 🤣.

    I ended up with the first dress I tried on! In total, I just tried on 5 dresses. Six months later I'm still in love with it.

    I had appointments at six different salons and must have tried on four dresses or more at each store... So that would be 24+ dresses... Looked at hundreds or maybe thousands of pictures online, LOL. Frankly, dress shopping wasn't as much fun as I had anticipated, and I started getting frustrated. Many dresses looked fine on me, but I was really looking for more than "fine". Everything started to look sort of the same and boring. Then I was finally in a dress that looked different and special and made me feel like "me". It was a sample dress and I bought it on the spot and stopped looking right then and there. Still love to look at all the photos here though! :-)

    None to date, as I've fallen for a dress online. Having said that, I plan to find a similar dress to try to make sure that style suits me. I also plan to try on a few in department stores, so that I'm not deprived of dress shopping. Smiley winking

    I tried on 4 dresses, but knew the second I stepped into the first one that it was the one I would buy!

    It seems like a lot only because I went to this big wedding sale and they let me try on SO many dresses so my sisters and I just had fun with it. So maybe around 20! But it was easy to say yes to the dress when I found it Smiley smile

    I can't even remember but probably close to 15. I tried on a lot at the first salon and then the first that I tried on at the second was the one I chose, but I tried on more just to make sure.
