Me! I checked out one sample sale, then followed up with two appointments at two different salons. The dress I thought I wanted ended up being the dress I got, and it only took two appointments because the first salon no longer had it in stock. So shopping can be pretty stress-free, especially if you know what you’re looking for!

I tried on sixteen dresses, which sounds like a big number, but my first consultant cast a pretty wide net, and I was onboard with trying on dresses I knew I’d never end up with.

I think I tried on 6 dresses total, including the dress I bought (the one I saw online and declared WAS IT!)  Sometimes that is just the way the cookie crumbles!

I didn’t look at alot online…I watched a ton of wedding dress shows but honestly I’ve never seen a dress on a bride that I thought I loved so much I wanted to wear it too. I don’t know why. I ofcourse could appreciate how amazing a bride looked in her gown, but I didn’t ever have a crush on any particular dress I saw in magazines, online or on TV. I just kinda knew I wanted something a little sexy…I liked the look of the form fitting gowns.

When I tried on dresses I’d say I tried on about 12-18 before finding my dress. U really have to try on dresses. I don’t think I tried on alot though some of my friends think it’s alot. I only went to 3 stores and all of this took place withint 2 weeks. 

U really have to try them on to know what you like. A dress you might think looks dead and lifeless on the model might look amazing on you. 

Good luck!

The first dress I looked at is the one I bought. I ended up looking at more dresses after I bought the dress.

The dress I ultimately decided on was the second one I tried on (out of maybe 10 total).  I had a really good feeling about it but wanted to keep looking around to make sure, especially because based on the photo and seeing it on the hanger I hadn’t been expecting to like it as much as I did.  That was one of 7 dresses I tried on at AA, then I went to a couple outlets the next day and tried on a couple more, and nothing was doing it for me – and I kept thinking about that dress.  So the second day I made a last minute follow-up appointment at AA, took another friend with me for her opinion, and ordered it.  I’m a big shopper, so I was expecting to shop around a lot and compare, but I just loved the dress so much I didn’t even feel like I needed to anymore.

I’ve tried on 6 dresses, and I won’t go shopping officially until last of this month. Then I actually need to decide. I do alot of surfing on the net, checking styles, and so forth. Still not know what to wear though until I get there to finally make a decision.. nervous!

I went to one higher end bridal shop and I didn’t leave there feeling good about bridal shops.  They were arrogant and I wasn’t having that.  I went to David’s afterward and that is where I found my beautiful dress! I see you are from Boston. If you do go to the David’s in Danvers it is best to make an appointment, they are really busy on nights and weekends. I can’t hurt to check out dresses other than the AA ones.  Good luck!

I would have been happy with the very first dress I tried on and not trying on any more. In fact, that was still “the one” after 4 bridal salons and probably 20-30 dresses. But my mom had came from out-of-town to go dress shopping with me, so I kept trying them on because she wanted me to, I figured she wanted “the experience”, even though I was kind of like “I have to put on ANOTHER damned dress?!”, I smiled and did it anyway. But the whole time I knew the 1st dress was “it”.
