I am going dress shopping this weekend at the Alfred Angelo store. I have two dresses that I absolutely LOVE and cant wait to try on. There are about 5 others i really like as well. My question is, when in the order of dresses should I try on my “dream dresses”. Save them for last? Start them off? Somewhere in the middle?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I don’t think it matters. Usually the bridal salons save the best for last because seeing a lot of bad ones makes you love the good one at the end more and you’re more likely to buy on the spot. However, putting the dream dress on first may make you compare everything to it instead of appreciating each dress in its own right or if you don’t like it, you may be discouraged. Just keep an open mind and the order won’t matter.

I started off with my dream dress (which I ended up buying!). I did this because I didn’t want to be thinking about my dream dress while I was trying on every other dress. The dream dress may not live up to the hype, or maybe it will, but I think it’ll be easier to compare dresses and get a feel for what you want if you just try them on right away.. hopefully this makes sense ha.

Try them first. If it’s a flop, you can move on and focus elsewhere.

I didn’t have a dream dress until I had already bought a dress. Then we changed our wedding date and I startes rethinking wedding ideas and doubted my dress decision. So I started looking at lace dresses and fell kn love with one. I waited 3-4 months before I found a store that finally had a sample. So my dream dress was my last dress I tried on. Everything was pointing me to this dress so I don’t know if it was fate, coincidence, or maybe Fiance mother watching out for me from above. But once I stepped out in this dress I KNEW I didn’t want my previous anymore and that I had found THE ONE.

Thanks for the help! I just dont want to put too much pressure on “the dress” by saving it for lat but I also dont want to not give all dresses a fair chance by trying ti on first. Maybe somewhere in the middle 🙂
