The ONE was the 3rd store and 11th dress I tried on!

I have tried on a total of 14 dresses. Sometimes I wish I tried on more styles because I only tried on one style but I know that I would still have chosen my dress so I don’t worry about it to much!

Why don’t you try on a bunch before you tell the lady about THE dress when you go back to Kleinfeilds so that you can get your dress-trying fix?

I’ve been to 5 or 6 stores… and all of them 2-4 times. That means I have tried on about 40 dresses (some more than once!) so I have probably taken 100 wedding gowns on and off body until I met THE ONE. 

And it just happened yesterday. I posted about it earlier.

I tried on about 15 dresses.  “The One” was the first one I tried on.

It was the first dress in the third store I went to. I thought I wasn’t going to feel emotional about a dress because I felt lukewarm about the other dresses I had tried on but when everyone in the store started crying (including me!) I knew it was it!

I tried on like probably 50 dresses and went to 6 different stores…….I KNEW that once my mom came with me I would find one….sure enough that’s what it took!

Conservatively … 60. Although my sister seems to think it may have been closer to 80 (I am very decisive, actually, I just needed to find the one)

40 or 50+ and ironically the one was one that I liked but never was able to put on in the stores because of sample sizes. I took a risk, but it preowned and adore it 😀

I went to 2 different stores and tried on 14 total dresses.  I bought lucky dress no. 5 tried on at the first store!  Sometimes when I watch ‘Say Yes To the Dress’ I feel like I need to try more on.  Then I remember how happy I am with my gown and all those feelings go away!!!

I think we’re lucky we are so sure of our dresses early in the dress hunt!

in all honesty it was the first dress i tried on in the first store, but i had to drag my mom to 8 more stores and try on about 50 dresses more and find it in another color before i could get mom to get on board with it 🙂

The first time I saw my “dream” dress,I knew she was the one..but she was VERY expensive! The first dress I tried on I bought because it was on “sale”..I ended up with my “dream” dress! I tried her on and then found her used…it was fate! I was able to return the other dress to the salon because I knew the owner and she knew i loved the Priscilla of Boston one!  My friends tried to get me to try on other dresses but I knew I wanted the Priscilla of Boston dress and just ignored them!
