    Zero. I'm trying to fit into my mom's wedding dress. Only 1 size too small.

    Only 3. Since I was rejecting dresses so quickly I got through a lot of them quickly, haha. But I really do love my dress - gonna add some sparkle somewhere and rock it!

    I've tried 9 or 10 over the last 6 months. The last one is the one I bought and is currently hanging in my closet waiting for my first fitting.

    It's like it was meant to be! Will you be making any changes to the dress or wearing it as is?

    I think I tried on about 12... However I went with the 1st one I tried on, which of course was not the style I thought I'd go with at all. It was a suggestion from my Mom and I was completely against the style, but open minded to try it, and of course I fell in love with it! Mom's know best. Smiley laugh

    OMG...it was the hardest thing for me to decide. I truthfully don't know how many I tried on, but I can tell you that I went dress shopping three separate times...I know right! I ended up getting a dress that I typically never would have picked, but it was so different from what I usually like that I had to try it on. I fell in love with it and feel like Grace Kelly in it!Smiley love

    So far I’ve tried on 6-7, and hopefully I’ll be trying on some more tomorrow! My maid of honor couldn’t be there for the first round, so this time it’s just me and her!

    I've tried on 17, liked 3 of them and now I don't like any of them. I might just show up in shorts and flip flops. Thankfully I still have a year before the wedding.

    I think I ended up trying on close to 20 dresses between 4 shops, and I tried on my dress and fell in love with it at the 2nd shop, about 7 dress in. I kept trying because why not, but every time I was like meh and compared it to "THE DRESS" so I tried it on 2 more times, again because why not, lol. And then at the 4th shop they didn't have the dress but sold they Pronovias line and could order the dress, with their trunk show they recently had they offered me $300 off the other shops price. Smiley smile Plus this 4th shop was super nice and fun where the 2nd shop they were very stuck up and no fun.

    I only went to one store where I tried on 10-12 dresses before I chose mine. It’ll be here in March, I’m excited to see it again after 8 months.
