    None 🤷🏻‍♀️ I know the style I want. I ordered off line and keeping my fingers crossed it looks amazing. If not then I guess I’ll be trying on a bunch of dresses

    Just 1. I saw it on facebook marketplace before we got engaged (but we had already talked about marriage and knew that's the direction we were heading) and it looked like what I was picturing for myself. I contacted the woman, met her and tried it on. It was already tailored to my size and height and was a great price, so I just knew it was it for me. I've been to bridal shops for various other things and have managed to avoid the temptation to try on others because I know I love so many various styles and don't want to be torn.

    I saw one one a bridal stores FB page that was going to be in a black Friday sale. I went into the store a week before and saw it first thing. I tried only that one on and it was exactly what I dreamed! Clerk honored the sale price even though I was a week early! And It was also over $1000 off ♡How many... dresses have you tried on? 1

    I tried on about a dozen between the first two appointments. I found my dress on Pinterest the night before my second appointment, found the store in my city that had it, tried it on the next day and it was the one! I'm usually VERY indecisive but was instantly in love once I tried on my dress!

    I tried on a total of 5 dresses. When I tried on the final dress I knew it was the one because I didn’t want to take it off.

    I only tried on 6 dresses. 3 of which I tried on because my mom wanted me to even though I didn’t like them.

    I went to my first-ever appointment by myself to just get an idea of what I liked and didn't like. I think I tried on around four at that time. I then scheduled appointments at three different shops with my mom, but I found "the one" three dresses in at the first shop!

    Sometimes it takes a few. Sometimes u know with the first. Take your time and look at the dresses before trying. Look for your style.

    I tried on 15. I only came out of the room in 9, and it was the 2nd dress. Just felt like me when I had it on. The other dresses were gorgeous and it was not an easy day making a big decision like that! But I am SO happy I picked the one that I did. I go for my first fitting next weekend!

    Since our engagement, around a dozen. About half of those were somebody else trying to get me to change my style.

    I think about 15 or so between two locations. Ended up going with the last dress I tried on at the first place I went to.

    I tried on 5 dresses and bought two (one for ceremony and one for reception). I was super easy going about my dresses. Honestly I think I’ve spent more time stressing over the right accessories and I still don’t have a purse yet since so many just don’t look right to me and I need one that works with both dresses (one dress is ivory and one is white). Still deciding on right veil too!

    OMG, I can’t even say how many dresses I tried on before finding the one. It still makes me mad that the first time I lost a $400 deposit that had me depressed for weeks. Then finally I went to NY in search of my gown in which I found after trying on at least 5.
