    The places I went were typically 1.5-2 hours long. Planning for 2 hours at each store is probably going to be fine.

    About 2 hours from start to finish. I think I tried on 6-8 dress at each appointment.

    During each appt I tried on 6 dresses or more and it took at least took two hours to try them on. I think you should consider taking 1-2 hour break in between appts because it’s mentally exhausting and you need some time to truly analyze what you like and didnt like (figuring this stuff out makes future appts easier). Hope this helps!

    The appointments I went to ranged from 1-2 hours. Depends on if the salon had a time limit on appointments too. I would keep it to under 2 hours. That way you don’t get overwhelmed!!!

    Yeah 1-2 hours.  When I book multiple stores, I gave about 2 hrs plus travel time and it ended early I had time to get coffee or lunch or something.

    I tried on a total of 2 dresses, once my dress, then another of the same designer, different style that was in my size then mine again.  With pinning and photos it was 2 hours.

    one hour at some places, two hours at others. It depends on how long you want to stare at yourself in the mirror and have peopel ooh and ahh over every single dress.
