5 here…luckily I was able to return the 2nd most expensive one. The other three were inexpensive short or sheath dresses. Ill find a way to repurpose them I suppose. I am wearing one as a reception dress

Mrs.Z.:  I remember you commenting on my dress and tempting you but you’d already bouget 3!

One of my bridemaids said as much as she loved her dress she felt like there were plenty of others she could have loved too.. between her comments and stuff I read here, I decided early that whenever I did make a decision, I wouldnt let myself keep looking. i can’t imagine continuing to try on dresses now. I had a 2nd dress appointment after the one where I found my dress and I canceled. I’m normally so indecisive no one thought id be done shopping in less than 2 hrs! 

im still on cloud 9 since it’s only been a week. Not sure what I might start thinking months from now. But the store told me i can come visit and try it on anytime so that might need to happen to keep me sane!

Mrs.Z.:  I’m also a 5 dress bride.  One is from David’s Bridal that I may sell (I bought a dress my MOH loved and of course David’s does not do refunds), one is a Bonny sample that is currently my frontrunner to wear.  However, I have 3 more arriving next year, and all 3 of those are returnable with a restocking fee.  The reason I had to actually order those 3 dresses was because I could not find samples locally to try on, and to me it’s worth it to pay a restocking fee rather than always wonder “what if?”

TXbride2015:  “I’m normally so indecisive no one thought id be done shopping in less than 2 hrs!”

Me too! Once I found a dress that I loved, and got approval from the MOH and the two BMs, that was it. I teared up, didn’t wanna take it off, and it fit into FI’s budget. Done.

I’ve all but banned myself from looking at more dresses. At any rate, I think the dress sets so much of the mood for the day, I’m glad it was the first thing I was able to set in stone.

I bought three…  (guilty face)

My first one is up for sale and ended up being a verrrry expensive change of heart!

I bought an inexpensive dress off the rack in a panic once I realized I wanted a new one…but ultimately found a third dress to wear! I hate being so indecisive but I guess third time’s the charm 🙂

Dress 1- Watters Olina- fingers crossed it will sell!

Dress 2 was from Camille la vie (no photos online!)

Dress 3- Carolina Herrera Astrid

Mrs.Z.:  I have it on pwd and on tradesy: http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/114633/Watters-Olina-5014-Size-2.html

I must’ve tried on at least 100 dresses! It was so much harder than I expected and my friends were IMPOSSIBLE to please. Eventually, I gave up trying to please everyone but I still feel confused at times since I love so many different styles! 🙂 If anyone is interested, the price is negotiable on the Watters dress and I would even consider a trade! I’ve been contemplating getting a reception dress…

I bought 3. One from David’s Bridal and two from BHLDN. I sold the David’s Bridal dress, and will wear both BHLDN dresses. I spent a total of about 1300 on the three dresses plus customs fees because I’m international. It would have cost me over 2000 to even rent one dress where I live so I consider buying 3 a bargain.
