I’ve tried it on twice in the store, but I haven’t even bought it yet. ๐Ÿ™‚

I tried on mine about 5 times too and just signed the papers (ordering it) just last weekend. I hope I made the right choice!

a few times but always with a set purpose…like trying on jewelry or bras to see how they go.  I don’t want to get it dirty so I’m trying to limit it as much as possible.

I’ve tried my actual dress on twice, then I took it to my parents’ house and now I don’t get to see it very often. ๐Ÿ™

I was tempted to try it on when I was there last but FI was around, and it’s a real hassle to lace up and everything.

I tried my dress on once, stressed out making such a huge decision so I made an appointment to try it again on after lunch.  Then had to get my daddy’s approval and tried it on again for him, then signed the papers!  Now it’s sitting at my parent’s house and I miss it!

I have never tried on my dress, but I will receive it next week. That is a strange way to go, and I hope it will fit!

A dozen or so times… I’m working with a seamstress who I see about once a month.  She makes adjustments each time I see her.  It’s been a really fun process!

Once – BUT only because the dress is at my FMIL’s house and easily accesable for me. Each time I am there, Mr S is – so Ican’t take the chance.

Hopefully I’ll get to take it out and put it on again soon because I’m dying too!

it was actually the first dress i put on (1), so i didn’t want to be impulsive and tried more dresses before i ultimately tried it on again that same day (2).  then i wanted to get my parents’ opinion and went back to the store the next day (3). everyone loved it, and i bought it. when it came in i went in for a fitting (4).  i’m have an appt in the middle of march to check out the alternations.  so 4 times…so far. ๐Ÿ™‚

Before I ordered it, I tried it on three times – twice at the same store at different times in Calgary, and once at a third store in Chicago. Then I ordered it, and since it was delivered in December, I’ve tried it on 3 times… I always think about putting it on, but a) I’m not fresh out of the shower (I know, probably not necessary, but I want to keep it pristine as long as possible!) or b) our floors are not freshly swept! The day it arrived i excitedly pulled i t out of the box and put it on. When I took it off and wrapped it up to store, I noticed that the hem was covered in floor dust and hair – ick! so now I will only try it on if the floor has just been cleaned!

Twice. Once when I tried it on and realized it was the one.  And the second time when it arrived at the shop. (that was back in August of last year)  My fittings aren’t until May so it will be a while before I see it again.

I tried it on twice. Once when I was shopping with Mom and a second time before I bought it to get a final vote. It is going to be custom made (an extra $500 that is totally worth it for a 5’0" bride because it would probably cost at least that much to hem it, fit it, etc), so my actuall dress won’t be ready for quite awhile. I would try it on every day if I could!!
