    This one was a hurdle for me. I think I tried around 50 dresses at 5 different dress shops. I could not find something I felt good about spending the money on and I saw so many I liked I couldn't afford.

    About 14 Smiley catface

    5 were at David's bridal with absolute no luck

    5 at a local bridal shop- the first one I tried on here, is the one I decided was THE DRESS

    4 at one other shop a little ways out, just to be sure I wasn't missing out on anything

    Well since we're both grooms, neither one of us will be in a dress! We've tried on one tux from the Bridal Shop that we got our bridesmaids/groomsmaids dresses from and we didn't like what we saw/tried on, so we ordered online and found our perfect tuxes! Smiley heart

    I went to 7 stores and after the first 3 and feeling extremely overwhelmed by trying on everyone’s idea of the dress I should wear. I analyzed the photos that night and learned what style I liked. The next day when I went shopping, I asked the store to look around and I picked one or two dresses at the store to try on. I believe it was dress number 20 that I fell in love with. Total say yes to the dress moment, complete with tears.

    God I want to say the lady at David's bridal had me try on like 20 dresses! I felt like I was drowning! Then I tried on 3 at Camille la vie and the third one was the charm

    I didn't count, but I know it was at least twenty. I had no clue what I wanted and didn't even have a favorite silhouette. I ended up choosing a dress with the neckline I had said I was sure I didn't want (the only decision I went into dress shopping with).

    I really want to try on a dress but not until we get the foundation of our wedding planning squared away. What’s left of the budget will allow me to go confidently and shop for my dress 👗. I want to be wise with what money we have. ❤️

    The first dress I tried on is the one I ordered. But no one knows besides me and my fiancé. We happened to stop by the bridal salon at Macy’s and saw the perfect dress before I booked an appointment. I tried it on and loved it. But still had to make an appointment for my mom and bridal party. Tried on 3 other dresses there and then wanted to see if I could find a cheaper option. So went somewhere else and tried on about 6 dresses. Just to go back to Macy’s and order my dream dress.

    Countless! Maybe 20 or so? Funny thing is, the dress I ended up going with was one of the first ones I saw.

    Ugh... I went to David's Bridal at first. They were super nice and all but I felt like every dress they put on me looked horrible. I want to say I tried on 8 dresses there and I felt so defeated. I am in between sizes since I have lost about 12 lbs. I went to a bridal boutique near where I live and I was supposed to try on 6 dresses but I only made it past 4. It was so hard to choose because I felt so nice in all of them but I couldn't make it past the last dress. I did not want to take it off and the minute they put on the detachable train... it was it.
