I tried on the dress I thought I liked most, then tried on at least 20 more (including the first dress again at a different shop a different day).  A few weeks later I wound up buying the first dress at a sample sale.

Um yeah I lost count, but it had to be more than 40, no joke!

My dress is the first I tried on, but I probably tried on 20 after that – just to be sure!

I must have tried somewhere between 20-30 dresses before I decided on my dress.

Probably 30 or so.  I went to 4 different bridal salons, and then revisited two of them before making up my mind.

It was the first one I tried on- and not even the one I had in mind either.  I tried on about 5 others, then bought the first one.  I got lucky!

I tried on maybe a dozen, but ended up with the third one I had tried on. I knew it was the one immediately, but I was trying to be openminded. 🙂

I think I tried on close to twenty and was getting discouraged. Then I narrowed it down to two that I LOVED. I went home, slept on it, and when I woke up in the morning I knew which one I would be mine.

I have tried on 30+, and have one in mind.  I’m not sure if I should just order the one I like.  I don’t *love* it, but I’m running out of energy for dress shopping.

Tried on 15 or so gowns.  When I put on my dress, the search was over, I didn’t want to take it off nor try anything else.

My daughter and I went to at least 7 stores. She tried on over 20 dresses.  At the last store (and we weren’t even planning on buying) we had 5 ready to try on. She tried on the first one and said "This is it". I knew it. She knew it. We were both crying.  The amazing thing is we hadn’t looked at price tags at all and it turned out to be on sale..70% off!  God is amazing!
