How many dresses did you try on before you found the one?

I tried on 100+ dresses – I couldn’t find anything I loved so I’m having a designer make a semi-custom dress for me. My issue was that I’m not into the lace, overly glitzy or boho styles that are so popular now so I didn’t have many options that I even somewhat liked in bridal boutiques.

I tried on a total of 6 and I went to two different bridal shops. 

 

The dress I chose was the first dress at the second shop and when I tried it on, I just knew!!

mikaylaauel :  I did not like any of the dresses I tried on there and I did not have a good experience. All of the dresses I liked were not available for in my size and I did not feel pretty at all. I went to a smaller boutique and had a much better experience! The first dress I tried on was the one!!

nickkifu84 :  At David’s Bridal or BHLDN? They didn’t have my size either at BHLDN – they only carried two sizes for brides: a size 2 and a size 12. Well since I’m a size 6 the size 2 would have been way too small so I tried on the 12s and they pinned them to me. At David’s Bridal they had more dresses in my size but I didn’t find any that I liked.

I just found my dress today! About 10? I had an appointment the other day and tried on probably 7-8 dresses with no luck, I still didn’t even know what shape I wanted. Two today before I tried on my dress. After trying on the one before mine I was saying how every dress I’d tried on was just “pretty” and I was having doubts that I’d ever love a dress or get that feeling but I knew as soon as she zipped me into my dress that it was the one! Good luck with your search! 🙂

tried an about 20-30 dresses in a very full-on day, with pre booked appointments. Ended up with the very first one of the day. Tried it on and just went, ‘oooh this is nice!!’.

I had about 6 appointments so I tried on maybe 60 dresses? In the end I bought one from Etsy!

I went to a bridal shop with my heart set on a particular dress – tried it on and loved it but then tried on a different one and loved that even more. Probably tried on about 8 more to make sure but eventually went with that second one.
