For ladies who’ve tried on dresses, did anyone schedule more than one store in one day? I have a day off work next month during the week so figured it would be a good time.
But if I want to hit two stores, how far apart should the appointments be? I don’t want to feel rushed during the first one, but I also don’t want to be so exhausted by the time the second one rolls around that I can’t focus.
I’m not the sort of person that enjoys shopping or trying on clothes, so yes, exhaustion is a factor for me!

I haven’t scheduled more than two in one day, and left about three hours between each appointment so I didn’t feel rushed and had time to travel.

I had two in one day once. I scheduled the first one for 10-11:30am, and then had lunch, and had the second one at 2:00pm. It worked out ok but I was a little tired/crabby by the end of the second appointment. It was a lot of dresses to try on in one day.

I had an appointment at 12, ate lunch and then second one at 4. but the stores I was going to were an hour away so we had to space it out more.

I did an 1130am and a 1pm. Kept me from obsessively trying dresses I knew I didn’t really love at the first, and by the second I was so bored with the process that I only picked dresses I really, really loved. Ultimately I found my dress while shopping by myself when I had an hour free.

How long it takes depends on how big of a store it is I think. I went to 3 in one day. My 10am didn’t allow you to stay more than 1 hour (small boutique, only 1 person working it) We probably used 45 minutes there. Then we jumped over to Priscilla of Bostons who were only allowing walk-ins since the store was closing. We rushed a little there to make sure we had time to get to our 1pm at Alfred Angelos (about 20 minutes away). Since AA has a larger selection, it took probably 1.5 hours before we were ready to sit down for lunch and mull over our favorites.
