I went dress shopping last friday and fell in love with the first dress I tried on. Nothing else compared.
I was ready to put my deposit instantly but held off. Then I realized i’m only “holding off” because it’s the rational thing to do…
SCREW IT!!! Booked another appointment with my Maid/Matron of Honor Sunday. Gonna buy it!! It’s definitely the one.
I know i’ll just try a million on and go back to this one.
How many dresses did it take for you?

The one I ultimately chose was the 3rd or 4th I tried on – but it took me over 60 dresses, and then trying it on again to decide for sure I wanted it!

I fell in love with the first dress I tried on….but tried on another 20 (or so). Some, I liked a lot, some not so much, but none of them did what the 1st did for me. I loved it. I bought it that day

I must of tried on 10 or 12 dresses. As soon as I tried on mine I knew, but I tried on a few afterwards, just to be sure.

Somewhere around 15… Didn’t want to try on anymore as soon as I found her!

it was the second dress i tried on (really the first since the real first dress i tried on was a “joke” dress – big poofy and SO not me but fun….), and i loved it then, but my mom and sister hated it. so fast forward 100+ dresses at yet another store, saw it in another color tried it on and loved it – again my mom was not completely sold. went back without mom and bought it the next day lol.

I tried on about 20 dresses….I ultimately chose the one that made me feel the best (ironically and happily, it was the least expensive one). I tried on everything from Priscilla of Boston dresses over several thousand dollars and chose one that was less than $1,000 and I love it!
I think you’ll know which one is right, just like you knew when you fell in love with your fiance! Good luck and have fun!

Probably 30 before… and 30 more after!
I fell in love with a dress worn by Ginger Rogers long before getting engaged. By the time my engagement came around, I still loved it and knew it was exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately it was nearly impossible to find! I tried on about 30 dresses in different styles to see if anything else made my heart skip a beat… but nothing compared.
After months of research I stumbled upon something very similar made by a local designer. It had everything I wanted… but a price tag which was much higher than I’d wanted to pay. I went and tried it on and alas, it really was perfect! But I kept shopping in the hope that I’d find something similar at a more affordable price point. I could fit it into our budget, but I thought it was a waste of money spending so much on one dress.
After trying on 30 or so more dresses and having no luck, I took Mum (who was visiting from overseas) along to see it and realised there would be nothing else out there that could make me happy now that I’d found the perfect dress!

ummmm i tried on probably between 70-80 dresses (i went to 7 shops, tried on at least 10 at each store) and fell in love with the last one. i had a bunch that i LIKED, but nothing that i loved until i walked in the last store, and saw MY DRESS. the salesladies made me wait to try it on too!
i really liked the very first one i tried on too. it was a contender before i found the one i loved.

I saw my dress online a long time ago- before I was even with my fiance. When I got engaged, I bought it from another bride on Once Wed. It came in the mail and it is perfect in every way- no need to try on anything else 🙂
