Kacie209:  one. Then I ordered 20ish gowns from zappos / amazon before finding my gown. Same dresses from bhldn but with better shipping / return options

One. I found exactly what I wanted on the internet. I tried it on. It fit. I bought it.

I visit three, but I ended up returning to the first one and buying the first dress I tried on! It is a lace v-neck too 🙂

I went to 4, I got more and more confused, so I stuck with those

I ended up only going to one.  I had two more appointments already booked, plus a list of a few other shops just in case.  Usually I’m a terrible over-shopper and I have to see absolutely every option before I make a purchase (you should have seen my poor fiance at the end of our couch shopping expedition, the poor man).  However, as cliche as it sounds, once I put on my dress at the first store, I knew nothing at the other stores would compare and I bought that dress and cancelled the other apointments.  I hope you have a great time shopping and find a wonderful dress!

Kacie209:  One.  I made sure to choose a boutique that carried ALL the brands I was interested in.

I went to one. Mom and I went to a bridal show, saw a dress we both loved (separately too. we have some good stories for this dress), and immediately scheduled a fitting with the boutique. It was the first and last dress I tried on of 4.

I went to 5 in a 2 day period, tried on 30 dresses, I’m a little neurotic, even though I loved by dress (it was at the 3rd store), I needed to know that I’d tried on as much as I could. I was a little nervous about purchasing that quickly, but there was a trunk show with 15% off, still loving the dress.

I went to 10 over a 3 week period…some of them I visited twice.  I have to say, I never felt one ounce of wedding dress regret because I know I won’t find a better dress than the one I have…I’ve already tried all of them on!

Kacie209:  I’m weird, but I only visited two. I chose the first dress I tried on, and bought an inexpensive lace gown for the reception. I didn’t want to pass up a good deal (I only paid $250 for both) and I didn’t want to confuse myself by having SOOOOO many options. I feel like everything looks “pretty” and with hair, make-up, and jewelry and that I’ll feel like a million bucks in anything. I also am one of those brides that didn’t want to spend a fortune on something I won’t wear again …so the two and done method worked best for me 🙂

Two.  18 dresses at the first location – 1 dress at the second, and she picked out three for me to try on.
