I tried on “the one” then 4 more, then “the one”.

I was lucky enough to know exactly what I wanted when I went in 🙂

Your post reminds me of the movie 27 Dresses (is that right?) with Katherine Heigel! LOL!  So which dress did you pick? Please post!

I love your pics 😉

I tried on only about 3-5 before finding THE ONE!

I can’t really remember, but I know it was less than 5 and at the second shop that I went to.

I went to 9 bridal stores and probably tried on 60+ dresses before finding the “one”.

Technically, none! 

But I did hours upon hours of online shopping first.

I believe I tried on 17 dresses before picking the one I loved. However, the one I picked was the 5th dress I tried on and the only one that I had picked out online. I knew I loved it but I wanted to make sure I tried on a bunch of styles first. I couldnt be happier!

I tried on 30-40, but I didn’t take pictures of them all- most looked so bad I didn’t want photographic evidence, lol! I went to 5 different shops, then went back to two over again, and I tried on about 10 more after I initially tried on “the one” before going back to it.
