Two in one day was enough for me. Trying on all those dresses is exhausting. Appointments about about 1.5 hours each, and it could also get boring for your BMs if you have too many in one day.

I suggest you do your research and shop at your top two choices of salons and idealy if you find the dress at the first one stop there and spend the rest of the time enjoying your friends and celebrating! I see Brides everday who try to make a huge day out of it only to come back later after being exhasuted and frustrated. It can be fun but on a Saturday in a Bridal salon it is going to be busy and overwhelming. Focus on finding the dress rather than just trying on dresses. Best of luck!

I would say just 2 a day. I totally get wanting to do a bunch at once, I was in the same spot with my bms, but when I tried to do it all in one weekend I was totally overwhelmed and couldn’t make a decision. For reference, my MOH flew in on thurs, we did 2 apts Fri, one on sat and one on sun. I ended up going to a 5th store the following weekend and was finally able to chose something.

3 in one day was too much for me. I was starting to give up hope, and even waited a whole month to try again!

I had so much fun trying on dresses, I felt like I could do it all day! I went to 2 stores two days in a row, and then a third store a week later and found my dress 🙂 

For time’s sake, I wouldn’t try to do more than 2 in a day because you might feel rushed!

I was able to do 3 in one day by taking a lunch break after the first 2.

Two in one day was enough for me. After a while, it can get confusing and overwhelming.

I never got tired of trying on dressed.  I’d love to do it today!!!

I visited six, but could have kept going.  🙂  Two in one day was enough for me.

I’m an efficient shopper. I know what I like and I am very quick to rule out what I don’t. I’m weird though.

One bad experience can be really disheartening though. I went to this salon with one of my bridesmaids and the selection was just awful. Literally everything looked like a potato sack on me and I was so let down.

Then this past weekend I hit two salons in one day with my FMIL and I was so jazzed I totally could have done a third if time allowed. Come Tuesday I just had to go back for more so I hit two bridal salons on the same street within two hours and found THE dress. I’m a freak. 😛

I did 1-2 per day.  I usually fit them in while on business trips…I’d have appointments in the morning, go to a salon at lunch, then go back to my appointments in the afternoon. 

Two of my visits were not full hour appointments.  One was at Priscilla’s and they went downhill a bit just before the end was announced.  There wasn’t all that much to see at the one I visited.
