    Around 10 I picked the first dress and said yes then went back to get the dress and tried it back on and I didn’t like it on me the third time I tried it on so I picked another dress that was more me 🤷🏼‍♀️

    i tried on 6 dresses before i chose my reception gown. i ordered my ceremony dress onlineand when it arrived i loved it. I was very skeptical about ordering it online but i was happy with it once it arrived.

    I tired on 8 dresses. I have to say, the process was quite disheartening and frustrating. Many of the places I went didn't have anything in the styles or designers I wanted in anything bigger than a label size 6 (street size 4). I'm only a "street size" 10 but the repeated experience made me feel awful. To get one of my first choices in a size to fit me, so I could decide if it would even look good, I would have needed to pay $200-250 to get it ordered. WTF? (Just to note, these were NOT small boutique shops so they should have had a range of sizes.)

    Needless to say, I found my dress at an amazing store that didn't make me feel gross, unworthy or shameful for not being a size 2 or 4. They didn't make me feel like I needed to be a certain size to have a beautiful dress.

    Bonus, part of all of their sales goes to aid in Parkinson's disease research!

    Thank you Glamour Closet!

    At least 15! I had an open mindset in the beginning of the process.

    30! It was fun trying on dresses and being open to other options I didn’t think I’d consider. But still ended up with my first choice of style. Simple and Elegant. It was difficult coz I loved a lot of different styles and my friends were giving me different opinions!

    I wanted to try a variety of styles to get a better idea of what I wanted. I ended up really liking the A-line figure and it came down to a lace dress or satin and I ended up going with the satin dress. I thought I loved the lace dress but wanted it in white and not ivory so tried a white gown that happened to be satin and loved that one even more.
