    I only tried on 5 and only went to one bridal shop. I knew exactly what I was looking for and I was armed with a binder full of inspiration pictures, so it was pretty easy for them to find what I was looking for.

    I think i tried on around 5 also. I came in with a dress in mind that i loved from a magazine. When i got there i didn’t like it on the hanger and almost gave up on it, but i tired it on and loved it. My mom and friends made me try on a few others just to make sure i was set on the style and everything. But i ended up getting the one i loved in the magazine all along 😉

    Wow, I think I tried on 50ish.  I had no idea what I wanted going in, and had so many people that wanted to come with me on different days it was hard to avoid.

    I went to three shops.  I think it was about 20-25 dresses.  I LOVED the first one because it was the one I imaged myself in, until the one I chose.  I chose one I didnt expect.  It am so sure this is my dress.  I think I loved the first dress because it was what I thought I liked and because it was the first dress I tried one. The one I finally tried on is without a doubt, “my dress”.

    I think I tried on around 30 dresses at 4-5 stores.  It was a nightmare at first, but I tried my top 3 dresses on twice (2 different trips to the same store) and kept comparing every dress to those so I finally knew it was time to stop looking.  I think I knew around dress 15, but my Mom is a look until all options have been exhausted kind of shopper when it comes to expensive things.

    @soonerpsych: question: was your mom the only person with you?

    I guess I should have picked “other”, but I’m tired and wasn’t thinking clearly!  I probably tried on close to 200 when all was said and done, and looked at thousands and thousands more online!
