I did three in one day, haha! I think the shopping process for me took about three-four weeks, and in total I made 5 trips. I wanted to A) have the dresses fresh in my mind, and B) just get it done!

@kaleidoscope:   I allowed myself a week in between visits, to let the “shiny” wear off and to get a feel for which dress style I would be truly happy with in the long term.  I was very afraid of dress regret!   However, I was allowed to take photos in all but one store, so that changes things a bit.  Good luck in your search!!!

My MOH did three in one day too! Unfortunately we found nothing for her at those three, but found it a few weeks later on a trip to another store (only one that day). If the people you’re planning on taking with are up for it, do it! It was actually a lot of fun, but we were all pretty tired by the end of the day.

So far I have been 5 times and with no luck so I have decided to take a few months off from shopping.  I haven’t gone since beginning of Sept and my next appointment will be Nov. 14.

I went on a weekend trip witih my Mom to get my dress, and I went to about 10-12 stores over the weekend! Some visitis were very short (got a bad vibe from the store), but it was still exhausting! I didn’t have to worry about forgetting about dresses, because I’m a very picky person and all the dresses were a loud no (expect for the one I chose of course!), so I wanted to forget about most of them! Haha
