What bridal salon did you find your lovely dress at? Did you have to visit more than one before making a final decision? I got mine from David's Bridal and said yes at the first appointment Smiley smile

    I had one appointment and David's Bridal and bought my first dress at that appointment. It came in a month later and a month after that, I returned it for a store credit since it wasn't the one. While I was there, the manager basically pressured me into another bridal appointment on the spot and started bringing me dress after dress. I tried on three and just told them I needed a breather before picking another dress. I ordered three dresses from Azazie to try on at home and I'm going to order the first one at the end of November! Smiley smile

    I went to Ania Bridal in downtown Portland and had a wonderful experience. It was the 3rd shop I went to and I really felt like the the atmosphere was right and I was getting an experience I never got at David’s Bridal (this is my second wedding and I used them for my first). I did struggle to wrap my head around the amount of money I was spending on a dress, but ultimately I knew it was the one and that was worth it.

    I got my dress at North Fork Bridal Shoppe in NY. They were all super nice there and gave me and my parents champagne when I said yes to my dress! I had to go twice because while I loved my dress when I first tried it on I still had another dress in my head and I wanted to go try it on again to make sure. But ultimately I ended up not even going back to the other shop and other dress and just going back to say yes to my dress.

    I bought mine online at Lulus. I was a little nervous going this route but thankfully it turned out great. I’m having a Hawaii destination wedding and I wanted something simple and affordable(only spent $115). I know I missed out on the experience of going to a bridal shop with loved ones but I don’t regret it. The dress is beautiful in person, great lace detail with a perfect length ( has a little train) . 🥰

    I bought my dress from Signature Bridal in Austin. I had secretly gone to a salon closer to my house first because I knew my crowd would be overwhelming. The day of, we visited an off the rack/consignment shop and then the shop I bought my dress at. I had two more appointments but ended up buying the gown on the spot.

    I bought my dress from Thelma's Bridal in Rothschild, Wisconsin. We went on a Saturday they don't make appointments. It was somewhat busy that day but when I needed my consultant she was there and so friendly and helpful. We selected the dresses ourselves then the consultant would bring them in. I felt more comfortable having my mom help me try them on. My dress was number 13, my mom was the one who selected it. I loved it immediately. My mom made me try on 2 other dresses that I hated. I then put on the one I loved and it was perfect. No regrets. We bought it in March and it was here by end of July. It is no hanging in my parents spare bedroom closet.

    I bought mine at Bellissima’s Bridal which was the second salon I visit and felt in love with a dress. I didn’t purchase it until after I went back which was now my 7th boutique 🙈

    I found my dress at Demetrio’s Bridal Salon. It was the 4th or 5th store I had been to, but as soon as I saw it on the hangar I immediately loved it.

    I bought mine at David's Bridal! At my first appointment they had me trying on dresses way out of my budget and I wasn't comfortable buying. I also REFUSED to buy at my first appointment because I feel really strongly about sleeping on things before going forward as I tend to have regrets. At the first appointment I had my dads (2 dads - my dad is gay) and my sister.

    At the second appointment I went with just my bio dad and specifically asked for only dresses in my budget. I was worried I would never get "the one" feeling, but I did! My dad didn't like it at first, but it grew on him. It is quite simple and definitely "me". Plus it was a discontinued style and the last one in any closeby stores, on clearance for $200, AND it was in my size!

    I was so glad I didn't go with the dress I liked at my first appointment and didn't rush the process Smiley smile

    I actually bought mine off Poshmark! I was a little nervous but it was perfect! I’m always looking for a good sale, and I couldn’t believe to price on it. So I bought it on my break at work lol.

    I went to Brides by Young in Schaumburg, Ill. I am a plus sized bride and I wanted to go directly to a place where I knew I could try on anything in the store. It was a dream and I ended up buying the second gown I tried on (my consultant nailed it). I would recommend a plus size shop to anyone wanting a body positive experience.

    I first went to a Bridal Store in Pennsylvania. I tried about 6 dresses on there, but my favorite dress was not sold in white. I ended up going to a bridal show and found out that New Jersey doesn't put a luxury tax on bridal gowns like Pennsylvania does (a whopping 8% in PA)! So I went to a Macy's store in NJ that has a bridal salon. I ended up trying on about 12 dresses there. I liked a few of the dresses there, but I don't think I was ready to say yes to one. My sister told me that I shouldn't try more on, but I did go to another place and tried 3 more on. One day when I was driving to work I was thinking about the dresses and decided that I wanted one of the dresses that I tried on at Macy's. I called Macy's that day and they told me the date that I had to come and order it by because it was being discontinued. I set up that appointment for a Saturday and I found out a few days before that the Goodwill in NJ had a running of the brides that same morning. I went to Goodwill and tried on a few dresses first, but I didn't like anything as much as the Macy's dress. So I went to Macy's and ordered the dress back in February, it was in by May, accessories came in in early October, and I went for my first fitting last week. I have to go two more times. Before I pick up my dress, they will steam it to get all of the wrinkles out!

    I got my dress at David's Bridal. It was the first and only store I went to and it was the first dress that I tried on. My mom had me try one probably 12 dresses but in the end I went with the first one I had on and I absolutely love it! I only have 17 days now until my wedding!!

    I tried on dresses at 3 salons; David’s Bridal, Belle Vogue, and Mia’s Bridal. I ended up getting my dress at Belle Vogue and had a wonderful experience there!
