OK I went in yesterday for my first fitting and it went great. Sorry I dont have any pictures since I left my camera home but I will bring it next time. This is the thing as I was waiting I walked around and literally was getting a high looking at all the pretty dresses. I never tried on any of the fluffy one’s since I’m having a beach wedding. Would be be so horrible wrong to go to another place and try on just a few…???

Hah…I don’t think it would be wrong, but I tend to stop looking for things if I’ve decided on a big purchase. Or dinner! Last night was a perfect example. I kept looking at the menu and changing my mind about what I wanted. I should’ve just decided and closed the menu.
I don’t think you should torture yourself. You found a beautiful dress and I’m sure you look gorgeous in it! Don’t look around and then worry about “what if’ you had gotten a different dress. You will drive yourself crazy!

Don’t do it! That is how I ended up with a second dress.

I agree with the others, while it would probably be a lot of fun it could completely make you second guess your dress.

I wouldn’t do it because you might end up wanting another one and then feeling horrible that you are locked into a dress.

Don’t do it! Don’t do it!
I continued trying on dresses after buying, and it just made me feel bad. I’ve come across so many wonderful, beautiful wedding dresses, and it makes me second guess my original choice. And second-guessing my dress has really taken away some of the special-ness for me.
So I would advise against it, just from my personal experience.

I would say no… don’t do it. I almost did the same thing- I was in a bridal shop browsing veils and I was SO tempted to just “try on a few dresses”. Thank goodness my mom was there and talked me off the ledge!
I then went home and put my own dress on and romped around my condo for awhile (FI was obviously not home) and felt much better 🙂

don’t do it
but let this be a lesson to all the pre-dress bees
even if you think you want a certain kind of dress, try on the other kinds too so you know for sure
(for example, I look horrrible in a mermaid, and feel like a kindgergarten child in a princess dress………I tried them on even though I knew I wanted a slim sheath dress)

I would say no becasue you might fall in love with a 2nd dress. I can’t even look online anymore thinking I might see something else, but I really do love my Maggie!

Don’t do it!!!!!
I wish I tried on some mermaids when I was trying on dresses but I won’t try any on because I don’t want to be unhappy with my purchase.
I want to walk down that aisle in the dress that I believe is the one for me!

Since I own three wedding dresses (I’ll wear 2 s it’s not THAT bad) I would say don’t do it until after you’re married and have no need for a dress. I fell into this trap while shopping for a MOB dress. The bridal shop was selling a lot of their samples and there was one that was completely different than my dress and I tried it on “for fun” The sample fit almost perfectly and I went back and bought it two days later. Now I have a dress for the ceremony, reception and to sell. I can laugh about it because my first dress was not very expensive but I would not suggest putting yourself in that position – IÄm staying away from bridal salons from here on out!

@slicey – I’m in the exact same boat as you! I’ll grab a paddle! I have a ceremony ball gown, a reception destination-style, and a third dress that I’ve got to get rid of. What a pain in the butt!

Don’t do it. Most bridal consultants work on commission. It isn’t fair of you to take up their time if you aren’t intending to buy when they could be working with someone who might. You would be wasting their time and money…

I agree with the other bees, you shouldn’t do it, because the wedding dress styles are changing all of the time and there will always be something that you may think is better.

Well I cant buy another one since my wedding right around the corner and no way I can wear a ball gown dress on a beach. I just wanted to try one on to see what it looked it looked like really is all. I just was more worried about it being mean to the sales ppl really. I wasnt going to tie up hours of their time or tell them I was going to buy that day. i would tell them I was just looking.
