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

xxbutterfly :  oh gosh I just went two weeks ago. Probably about 30 at least before I landed in a place that had the perfect template dress to work with.  They will be building me a custom dress based on the pic below.  I would say I don’t have regrets, but I thought that I did for the first week after the purchase. I think in part because it’s 5,000 and I didn’t think I shopped enough to justify the purchase, but seeing other bees post I think I did! This regret seemed pretty common with most girls I talked to and everyone’s advice is don’t keep looking after you buy.

What I will say though as advice …  go back the next day and try it on again.  That is what gave me the bests security and I had so many additional adjustments to the dress (slight shimmer lining. Top lining in the corset, adding a sweetheart neckline, building the train, linings in skirt. etc) that happened on day two.  It solidified everything for me and made the dress what I wanted.  All reservations were alleviated in the day 2 visit.

Wish you best of luck…send pics!!!!

I just started dress shopping this past weekend (Friday & Saturday) and I’ve tried on 18 so far.

Hmm… I would say I probably tried on about 20 or 25.  I didn’t keep track.  My mom took pics of almost all the dresses I tried at my second appointment (when I picked it).  She didn’t take pics of the ones that were definite “no”s though.  I didn’t know right away with my dress, either.  I’m the kind of person to think about it a bit, go back and forth, and then come back to something before deciding it’s what I want.
