3 dresses, one shop, one hour, ended up with the first one I tried on. But I did go in with a short list of about 9 dresses I liked and fell in love with the first one.

I love the dress you posted. It took me two different trips on 2 different days, 3 total shops and about 12 total dresses. If you are indecisive, I would be sure not to start shopping too early. I would be afraid that you would buy the perfect dress, and then get dress regret. When is your wedding?

I went to one bridal shop and I think I tried on 5 dresses….left and went back a few weeks later and the first dress I saw…I got. 🙂

I am still searching…3 months, more than 12 salons, and probably over 100 dresses.  I have found 3 dresses I really like…but have yet to try on any of them due to sample sizes, or finding a salon that carried the style.

So my hunt continues!

Dont worry, Im REALLLLYYY indecisive, too. I started browsing dresses in magazines about 6 months ago, and fell immediately in love with the Enzoani Fatima. I couldnt get it out of my head. I stopped looking at dresses for a while, and went to try some on yesterday.. I fell in love with the Fatima the second it was on (first wedding dress to ever try on) and I knew it was it. I still tried on every dress shape/size there was to make sure, but nothing compared.

 

Sometimes you just get lucky! Also, don’t stress it too much. Chances are, if you love something when you put it on, it should be “the one”. People stress the significance of the dress too much.. anything looks beautiful on a bride.

Wow, all of you ladies who found your dresses at the first store make me feel so much better!

I, too, found a dress within one hour of my first salon visit. I think it was the third dress I tried on. I went to one other salon that day, but ended up driving right back to the first salon to buy “the one.” (It was a floor sample, and I didn’t want to lose it.) 

I always wondered if I should have tried on more dresses and taken my time, but I loved my dress and I always remind myself that it was a bargain!

I went to about 6 stores in about 2 1/2 weeks and probably tried on 40 dresses (or more). It just took alot of dresses for decide that I had found the one.
