I tried on easily like 50 dresses before making my decision, so don’t worry – it’s different for everyone!

Good luck with your hunt!

I narrowed my search down to two designers so just went to two stores. Tried on 15 dresses in total 🙂 Good luck to you!

I tried on about 3 before I found my dress. I also tried on about 8 after that to be sure. But I got lucky as mum picked it out and I was tentative as it’s mid calf length. i think I’d still be looking now if I’d not tried that one on! 😀

Isabelsong:  Same shop, two visits so maybe a total of 10-14 dresses. The one was the last dress, I didn’t want to take it off and knew it was the one!

I tried on thre dresses, but the sevond one was my dress and I knew that as soon as I tried it on. The 3rd dress was just to please my mom and Nana.

One store and I ended up with the first dress.  I tried on a total of 3 dresses just to make sure.  I went back the next day and bought the dress off the rack.  No regrets!

I tried on five, picked the third. After that they’re all just white dresses.

3 shops… maybe 15- 20 dresses total… Tried on the “the one” in the secod shop… then went to another trunk show to try it on again to make sure… bought it at the last store (second trunk show) discount and no tax 🙂  perfect match!

I saw the most amazing dress online and found a boutique that held a sample. I tried in on first, and I LOVED it. I did try on three dresses after that, but none of them even compared to the first dress.

Lol, you’ll get a kick out of this.

The dress that I picked was the 9th dress that I tried on and was at the 2nd salon that I went to.  In total, I went to 14 bridal salons and tried on 90 dresses over the course of 8 weeks.  I know this because I kept track of every dress that I tried on in a spreadsheet! 

I wasn’t indecisive, I just wanted to see everything.  Perhaps if I had more perspective before I started, I could have narrowed things down to a max of 7 salon and 40 dresses, but that would have been with hindsight.

Go ahead, laugh.

Man, I don’t even know the exact number! I know I probably tried on 6-8 dresses at each store, and went to 6 stores.

My dress came from the 3rd store I went to, so after that… nothing really compared!

I went to three appointments, and probably tried on 15-20 dresses or so. I actually ended up buying the very first dress I tried on, and the next 19 just didn’t measure up. 

Good luck!
