My dress was the fifth one I tried on.  This may sound odd, but I’m the kind of person who probably could have found 10 dresses I’d be happy with. This was just the first one I really liked so I figured it was futile to look more, just to confuse myself.

A zillion??? LOL. Seriously though it was a lot. I was in no rush and I very much enjoyed trying on dresses. I pretty much “knew” when I stepped out but I wanted to be sure so I tried on other dresses after but I kept thinking, “I really want to put the other one on!”

I tried on about 10 and the one I ended up with was the 5th or 6th one 🙂

It was my third dress that I tried on!!  I knew right away, but I still tried on about 20 more afterwards, but ended up going back to the boutique that same day and ordering THE ONE:)

it was the 4th. and when i took it off and tried on my 5th, i wanted to wear the 4th again. that’s how i knew. plus, i’m the kind of person who cares more about how comfotable i am than how i look so it really was an easy decision.

mine was about the fifth one i tried on… and i didnt even pick it. the girl that was heping me at Alfred Angelo’s picked it out. it is a dress that i never would have picked out (and actually i didnt huh!!!) but it is simple and lovely and i loveeeee it. i went to DB’s after just to go with my sister’s to see but none of them could compare with The One. nothing was right.

Mine was maybe the 5th or 6th dress I tried on.  Surprising b/c I’ll try on 100 pairs of jeans to find the right pair but I knew my dress was “the one” so quickly!

I tried on 50/60+ at 7 different salons.

Found “my dress” in the 5th salon, but wasn’t 100% sure so I kept looking.

Went back and forth between dresses at the 5th and 7th salon twice before finally buying “my” dress.

I tried on dresses at 3 stores before I tried on the ONE. I did try on a couple after that and even went to another store later that day, but once I tried the ONE on, I went and bought it the same day.

I went to 5 or 6 different stores and tried on MANY dresses at each. I pretty much liked every dress I put on, although a couple dresses I liked more than the others. I went home and I debated between the two best dresses for weeks. I thought I was a bride that wouldn’t have “the one”, because they were all nice. I gave up my debate and decided to wait another month or two and start the search over.

In that time, I saw a dress in a bridal magazine and fell in love. I tried it on, ordered it, and now every other dress I see pales in comparison. I finally understand this “the one” business! Turns out when I thought other dresses might be the one, it was because they weren’t.

Probably close to 30. I took pictures of myself in them and then “reviewed” them when I got home and decided by a process of elimination which one was truly THE ONE. lol. There were a few that I went back and forth between but I’m very happy with my final choice.

I went to only 1 store and it was the 8th (last) dress that I tried on.

I was quite sure of it and decided to order it, my sister and my friend were pretty shocked and insisted that I go shopping some more to make sure but I was in my hometown with my family and I knew it was the one.
