    I tried on 10 dresses and said yes to the 3rd one I tried on; thankfully all in one appointment.

    I knew since I was little that I wanted to wear my mothers dress. I am currently in the process of getting it updated and fitted for myself, I am so excited and can't wait to see it finished ❤❤

    I went to 2 different dress shops the day I found my dress. I think I ended up trying on about 15-20 dresses. But I found my perfect dress within 4 hours. I already had a pretty clear picture of what I wanted. At the second shop the lady I had was amazing, I told her what I was looking for and she found it for me.

    I tried about 25 dresses before choosing "the one". I'm quite the overthinker lol

    I have no idea - Let's see, I went to 6 appointments (over 2 days) and tried on maybe 3-4 per appointment. So that's over 20 dresses, probably. I am SO glad I waited until I found the right dress, instead of settling. I was so perturbed at the sales women who claimed I was getting "confused" because I was trying on too many dresses. Wedding dress salons are a weird culture. I was not confused. I am not stupid. I just hadn't found anything I liked!

    I tried two dresses before I found the dress of my dreams!! The lady helping me asked to pick 12, my very special aunt picked THE dress and voila! (Shoutout to THE ALTAR BRIDAL at Barrrington, IL)

    At my very first appointment I tried on around 10. I though I found “the one” but I decided to wait and go see what else was out there. At my next appointment a few weeks later, I tried on 3 dresses. The third one I had tried on, I knew it was absolutely the one. I’m so glad I went with my gut and decided to look around more before deciding.

    I did not have to try on many dresses to find "the one" since I already had been looking for the style I want. In total, I tried about 5 different dresses and finally someone was able to provide me with the style I wanted.How many... dresses have you tried on? 1

    My dress was the 4th one I tried on. I knew when I saw it though it was it so I made myself find 3 others as options and tried them on first saving it for last.

    I tried on about 50 dresses, possibly more. I had 5 appointments at different bridal boutiques and by the last day I had lost all hope that I would even find what I wanted in my price range. On the last day of looking, I had found 3 different dresses that I loved and finally narrowed it down to a Stella York fit n flare!!
