I didn’t cry and I actually never even put on my actual dress until it came in for fittings. The sample was too small for me to get one and I ordered with huge custom changes, including changing the entire silhouette, so it looked like a completely different dress. Prior to ordering that dress, I tried on about 5 or 6 at a small bridal salon where I went on a whim one Sunday. Then I tried on two at a David’s Bridal (one that I loved and my mother hated and another one that I hated) and then two at the salon where I finally ordered a dress. The entire process was actually very overwhelming and stressful for me.

I tried on about 30 dresses at seven different stores and no, I never cried.

So far I’ve tried about 30… And I’m bouncing back and forth between a few. I am not a cryer though so I won’t have any kind of crazy reaction. The ones I’m picking between I love love love, it’s just a matter of which is my favorite.

Hmm I have tried on over 130 dresses and haven’t actually put the “one” on yet because I  am having it custom made and it isnt ready yet.

Id say close to 25 and I had a mini panic attack when I found the dress. It was almost double my budget but absolutly perfect.

I tried on five dresses and picked the first dress I tried on. I did not shed any tears.

I actually was more emotional (still no tears) when I tried on my wedding dress at home in front of family. I think that’s when it hit that this was th dress I’d be marreid in.

I tried on about 8 I think? I ended up buying the first one I put on…I sort of knew right away that it was my dress but I wanted to keep trying other ones just to be sure.

I tried on a good 50 plus and still have not found the one. I am just picking the best one because I don’t have any more time. I did get a co-worker to cry over the one I think i will pick. I think it depends on the person. I think I will end up crying on my wedding day once my dress is fitted.

I only tried on five dresses, the last one being the one, so I didn’t want to try any others on!!

I tried on about 15 dresses at 3 stores before finding the one. I cried. I am a crier though 🙂

I thought I’d found the one at the first store but I wanted to be sure to eliminate the other silhouettes/styles before committing to it. I’m glad I did 🙂
