    12 or 13 total. I picked the very first dress I tried on, but wanted to try on others just to be sure. I only tried on 4 dresses at the first store, but the second store had me try on 8 or 9 dresses trying to beat that first dress but nothing could!

    I really don't know... My FH picked out my after party dress - immediately. I tried on 4 then that one and bought that one. My ceremony dress... honestly - that was probably my 4th dress. However, everyone had something to complain about it, so I bought another one. Long story short, and much dress regret - my FH told me to go get the right dress. I went back and got dress 4, I tried on one other before it and didn't leave the dressing room.

    Don't let people convince you of what you know. In the end my kids told me that my first ceremony dress looked like something my dear friend would wear. And that was right, I picked it because of them and it showed. I love my dress now! Smiley heart

    I honestly don't even know, because I bought a dress when I was in a previous (and very bad) relationship. So, I had tried on a number, then.

    This time around, I went to a sample sale with some friends, and they treated me like a giant doll, just throwing dresses on me, until we got lucky. It looks like 7 in my pictures, but we may have skipped some.

    I went to one appointment, probably tried on about 6 dresses. My dress ended up being only the third dress I tried on!! I was surprised at how easy it was for me to decide, but my consultant really knocked it out of the park. My bridal shop had thousand of dresses, so I didn't feel like I was missing out on any choice, and I adored every dress my consultant pulled. So I felt really good about committing to my favorite of those!

    I think I maybe tried on 10-15 total all at one appointment. The last one I tried on was the one I got. It was a little over my budget so she hadn't brought it out earlier. I'm excited to take it to get alteration quotes this week!

    One. Saw it online. Had a mile long list of what I "didn't want" and this dress checked all the boxes. Tried it on in salon, and done deal.
