    I fell in love with the very first dress that I tried on. But, my mom and girls wanted to me try on other styles just to make sure I wouldn’t regret my decision. I don’t think I ever will I am completely obsessed with it!!!

    I think I only tried on about 10! I think SYTTD emphasizes the drama–it had me so worried I would be confused and frustrated but my appointment IRL wasn’t like that at all. I actually liked pretty much all of the dresses I tried on! After 9 or 10, I found one I loved and didn’t want to take off.

    I ended up chosing the very first one I tried on.  I knew immediate it was THE dress.  But I still told myself to try on more dresses just in case.  I probably tried on 15 total and really liked all of them/they all looked great.  But only the first one had that magical feeling.

    I went in with the intent to try on a dress I’d seen here, and pulled about 8 others to try on. It was the third dress I tried on, I loved it immediately.

    I tried on 3 at David’s, then tried on my dress at the store I bought it from (got there just before closing just to see the one dress… I had fallen in love with it online), then 3 or 4 more at a third store, and then one more back at the second store.  When I put my dress on the second time, I didn’t want to take it off and had no desire to try on any more.  And then I looked at the others I had pulled… all had at least a couple of similar qualities to the one I bought… I figured that should tell me something.  =)  So about 8 total dresses… not too bad.  lol.  I tried on WAY more pairs of shoes… probably went through 15 different pairs of shoes.

    I think I tried on about 20ish. It was a very confusing process. 🙂

    i loved the first one i tried on and knew then that that was it but i tried on probably about 10 (5 at one place 5 at another) because i knew my mom wanted me to try on a bunch and have that experience with her 🙂

    When I first started trying on dresses, I had no idea on style or anything like that, that’s why I tried on over 20.  I almost got one of the first ones that I tried on but it ulitmately ended up being one of the last ones I tried on.  It was similar to one of the first ones but it had more beading which is what I wanted and it was $300 cheaper 🙂

    I tried on around 4 or 5. It was my first time shopping and I didn’t even have an appointment that evening- my mom and I just decided to stop in and browse. I had no idea I was going to find my dress that day! I was dead set on having a lace dress, so I tried on a couple lace dresses first and ended up not liking them. I then tried on the Adorae dress, which I thought was “the one” until I tried on THE dress.

    Sometimes I wish I had shopped a little more, but I absolutely love my dress and can’t wait to try it on again!

    of my two favorites, i picked the one that made me cry. i still love the other one (but also love the one i got)–if only i had an occasion to wear two!

    I tried on 30ish.  In all honesty I probably should have stopped with dress number 4 but no one liked it so I kept trying them on until I found one that my mom liked.
