Like…75? Yeah, I am a perfectionist by nature and a poor decision maker….the funny thing is, I ended up going back to the fourth dress I tried on. I think 10-30 is probably a good number.

No, don’t second-guess yourself. If you had gone to the store all by yourself then there may be some room for doubt, but if your family and friends loved it as well then it’s very likely a winner! My dress was the 4th or 5th dress I tried on.

Approx 100 – 10dresses per visit x 10 visits – easy to get to 100 🙂

Close to 60, I think. I’m super picky.

racheltea:  If you feel like you decided too quickly, you could make another appointment to try on ~10 more dresses. Most likely you will come out of it feeling a lot more confident about your original choice!

racheltea:  Totally, it’s so easy to over-think your wedding dress if you keep looking at others after you’ve found one. You felt like a million bucks in it at the time, and everyone agreed that you looked like a million bucks, so no need to make it more complicated, I think it would just end up stressing you out.

I think dress 10 was the one for me.

I didn’t try on a single dress. There aren’t really many options for that sort of thing where I live so I looked at hundreds and kept coming back to the same one so I just ordered it.

racheltea:  I bought the 5th one I tried on during my first shopping experience. Like you I didn’t expect to buy something on my 1st shopping trip but I just knew it was the one and then I sent pics to my mom and sister and it was confirmed!
