    Less than 1

    1 - 2 hours

    3 - 4 hours

    over 5 hours (did they even let you stay this long!?)

    I’d say I tried on an average of 5 or 6 dresses per bridal salon.

    I spent an hour in the salon (only went to one) and tried on 6 dresses.

    I tried on two at the salon I ended up getting my dress at and one at the first salon I went to (I THOUGHT that was the dress)

    but less than 1 hour for each

    I spent about 1.5 hours per salon…and each visit about 5-7 dresses.

    I went to two stores.

    The first store only allowed an hour and a half for each appointment. We might have stayed longer if she wasn’t rushing us out. I tried on 8 or 10 dresses.

    The second store was very small and didn’t have any other appointments that day. We were there at least three hours, probably more. I tried on 8-10 dresses as well. We pulled some stuff, and as I tried things on we put back some without trying them on and brought others that were similar to dresses that I liked. I tried on two dresses a second time. I spent a lot of time in the dress I ended up purchasing.

    I tried on 3 dresses it took under an hour but I voted wrong because I thought you meant hair salon from the title.

    I tried on about 15-20 dresses before I found mine. Took about 2 hours I guess.

    I definitely spent 3-4 hours per shop. I was trying on big ballgowns though…which take a while to get on and off!

    I think it was close to 2 hours.  They had a limit there though. I think I just about reached the limit.
