    @Jade06:  Technically mine was the 3rd dress from the first store….but it took many more stores and 20+ dresses (always thinking about that one) to come back to it and finally have my “say yes to the dress” moment. 🙂

    Only 1…I feel very lucky. The first one was the right one.

    I tried on about 5 or 6 at one store, and ended up choosing the fourth one I tried on that the lady picked out for me to try.

    I tried on seven, and then bought my dresses sight unseen from overseas. I really just tried some on locally to get an idea of what silhouettes and styles worked and what didn’t.

    I honestly don’t know how many I tried on. It was one of the first ones at the second store…

    I knew immediately that the first dress I tried on was the one for me. I tried on about 3 more, but I knew the first dress was it.

    I tried on fourteen gowns to get a idea of styles and silhouettes looked good on me before I realized that it’ll be easier to just get something made that ticked all my requirements Tongue Out

    I am a plus size bride, so it was terribly difficult to even find dresses to try on! I’m sure I would have tried on more than 5 if I could have. It took me 2 months, 2 states, and 8 stores to find my dress!

    Somewhere between 10 and 20, I’m not sure exactly. I went to 3 different places and I was trying to decide between 3 different ones and then my consultant brought my dress for me to try on and I knew immediately.

    I tried on almost 100 dresses. It was mildly ridiculous, but I’m super picky and even once I found my dress I wanted to be sure therespent something else out there that I had missed.

    4-5 for me. One store, the dress I bought was the very last one I tried on.
