    I bought the first dress I tried on! I felt the same way (even put $100 deposit as well), I couldn’t fathom that it could be THE dress, but I tried on lots of others at a few different stores, but compared them all.

    I went back the next day and purchased it. I look at pictures now and couldn’t be happier. If it’s the one, it’s the one, doesn’t matter what order it came in.

    @Baybeejulia:  Wow — sounds like you hit up a lot of stores on your first day so you probably have a very good idea of what you like/don’t like.  If you feel like you’ve tried on enough to get a good sense of what’s out there and still love your dress, then it’s most likely your dress. 

    I almost bought a dress on my first day shopping.  It was our 2nd store of the day and I had tried on maybe 15 dresses at this point.  I think I liked it so much because it was different than the others I had tried on and not necessarily because it was the one.  The consultant was so sure I was going to buy it that she let us take pictures.  I walked away from it because I couldn’t believe that my dress shopping days were over and I felt like I hadn’t seen everything there was to see out there.  In the end, I don’t regret not getting it.  Trying on more dresses has shown me other styles/possibilities that I like more than that first dress.

    @Baybeejulia:  I also bought the first dress I tried on, BUT, not the first time I went to see it.  I would keep this dress in the back of your mind, go to a few more places (maybe not all in one day), and let yourself think about this dress.  If it still sings to you after you’ve seen a few more, buy it!


    Good luck!!

    You definitely did some shopping so it’s not like you just decided without seeing anything. 2 months is a good amount of time, I would keep kind of looking around and thinking about it for awhile since you have that grace period. If you find something else, $100 is a lot less than the price of a dress to save on some dress regret.

    I didn’t buy my first dress, but I’m a big fan of making a decision and then not thinking about it any more. If you go back and second guess every decision, you drive yoruself crazy. You found a dress you love. You put down a deposit. Buy the dress and check it off your list. And don’t think about it any more. Because there are an infinite number of dresses out there that you could try on, but it sounds like you’ve tried on enough that you can be sure this is the one you like best. So go for it! Then quit looking at dresses!!!

    The first dress may be your dream dress, but nothing is final until you buy it and even then you can change your mind. I’m super happy for you to have found THE dress right out of the gaet, but I suggest shopping around until the last minute or until you are 100% that this is the one you want. This way you can possibly avoid dress regret later on.

    I agree with the girls that say to buy the dress! I only went to 2 different stores before I found my dress and maybe tried on 12 dresses. After I put the deposit down on my dress I didn’t look at any other dresses and relived the excitement when my dress finally arrived and during fittings etc. If you’re the type of person who really knows what you like/want, I think it’s safe to buy it! I felt like more selection would just make my brain spin wondering which one to choose!

    @Baybeejulia:  I went to 6 shops in total and by the end of it I had totally had enough. I ended up going back to the first shop to buy I think the 3rd dress I tried on. I think at this point you’ve tried enough dresses to know it’s your dream dress, just buy it. 🙂

    Sometimes the first one is The One!

    Try on a few more dresses, but if it’s The One, it’s The One!

    I would take some time to think about it, like at least a week but not necesarily the whole 2 months. There’s no reason the first one shouldn’t be the one, but if you have time to decide I’d use it, lots of people change their minds!

    I bought the first dress I wanted. I knew it was my dress for two years. Sometimes you just know!
