**hugs** take deep breaths. I was nervous the first time as well…and the second…and the third. You get the idea. I didn’t find my dress until the third time out, but I had a blast trying on a bunch to see exactly what I wanted.

@MelissaS2012:  I found my dress on my second trip, but I thought I had found “the one”. Try to enjoy the day and not put too much pressure on yourself to find the perfect one right away!

I didn’t find my dress on Day One, but at least three of my close friends did. So it’s definitely possible. Go in with an open mind — you don’t have to find your dress on the first day out. Try on dresses that you know you’ll like, and even try on some that aren’t what you originally pictured. I was amazed at how much I like a few dresses that were usually styles I wouldn’t have gone for. All dresses look so much different on you than on the rack or on the model in the photo online. And definitely have fun!!!

I went for the first time on Sunday and found one possibility, although I’m not convinced just yet! I was so nervous and out of my comfort zone in the first couple of dresses! Especially because some of them looked terrible or just weren’t me. I’m going again on Saturday.

Good luck, and try to relax and enjoy the process!

I found mine on the first (and obviously only) day I tried on dresses!  Totally wasn’t expecting to either! Go in with an open mind, try on WHATEVER you want, and don’t let anyone pressure you into making a decision. Most importantly, have fun!  :o)

I found my dress on the first trip. It was the first dress I put on. I had about 6 or 7 to try on. I decided to try on my 2nd favourite first and it instantly became my favourite 🙂
