I only went to one and picked out my dress the first time I went.

I visited 4 as well. I found my dress at the second store, but kept looking just to be sure.

I went to 4, which is the number of wedding dress stores in my tiny hometown. If they had more I probably would have gone to more!

One. My dress was the fourth out of five that I tried on. I waited several months before purchasing it. I looked online, but never tried on anything else. I have zero regrets.

My dress was the 1st dress I tried on at the 1st store (bought it that day).  But I went to 2 more stores a couple weeks later just to be sure.

I went to 9. I like being really sure of my purchases.

I went to 2. The first shop I visited had THE dress that I’d been eyeing forever and after that visit I was even more in love with the dress but not the price tag. I found something similar online, found a shop that carried it and really loved it and the cost. I still wonder if there is an even better dress out there for me but I hate shopping, so I’m fine with my choice.

1. Tried on 6 dresses. Bought the 6th one. Took less than an hour. I didn’t have any kind of vision prior to trying on dresses. I had 2 specifications: I wanted it to be <$300 and I didn’t want to look fat. Dress was under budget and slimming, boom. Done.

I knew I already had found my dress though before I left the first store. However we already had another appointment set up at another store and my mom and Mother-In-Law convinced me to keep that appointment just to be sure. Well I did and the second I was done with store #2 I knew FOR SURE I wanted to purchase the dress from store #1. 

I think a lot of people have this fear of something better always being out there and so you feel the need to try on EVERYTHING. But after a while everything starts to blend together and look the same. There is definitely such a thing as trying on too many wedding dresses.

I think about 11.  Seriously.  My tastes evolved over the shopping process, plus I was absolutely not going to shell out >$1000 on a dress that made me feel like “I like this except…

I found my dress at the first store I went to! It was maybe the fourth dress I tried on and I fell in love!! I sometimes find myself thinking “what if I had looked around more? Would I have found one I loved even more?” But I try to not let thoughts like that get in my head!
