I actually found my dress at the first shop I visited, but wandered around several more (in each one I found myself comparing every dress I saw to the one I first saw). I eventually went back and bought the first dress.

- Wedding: February 2014 - Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts
I tried on 30+ gowns. I went to five shops: David’s Bridal, Bridal Warehouse, Terri’s Bridal, Bridal Suite of Louisville, and Regiss. Purchased 1st from Bridal Warehouse, 2nd from David’s Bridal, 3rd (“the one”) from Bridal Warehouse lol! Returned the 2nd dress to David’s Bridal and exchanged for BM’s gowns so that I didn’t lose money. 1st dress was dirt cheap so it is still in my closet. Didn’t try on anything from Bridal Suite of Louisville because the dresses were not in my price range (even though they were “having a sale”) nor size.

I tried on dresses at 5 different places.i thought i had found the one at the first place i went to (david’s bridal). I decided that it would be a good idea to get a feel for other dresses and I am SO glad i did!!!

I tried about 6-7 dresses before I found the “one”. We went to David’s Bridal first and they didnt have anything I found flattering enough on my body within my budget so we went to another place later that day which is where I found my dress. I hated it on the rack but when I walked out into the showroom in front of the mirror, I got a little dizzy at the sight of my dress on me. It was like out of a dream. I knew right then that was the one.

It took seven stores and nearly 150 dresses to find my gem (and I still wonder what-might-have-been!) I wouldn’t say that I tried on way too many since really only three or four made me forget to breathe.

I found my dress at the 5th store.
Visted my first salon last September, went to 2 more when I went back home for vacation last October, another when I went back home again last month, and finally found my dress at a store about 90 minutes from my hometown.
I had to have tried on 20-25 dresses in all.

I looked at one store only. I’d looked around a lot on the internet, but I don’t think anything can beat that gut feeling you get when you find a dress you love.
