I went to 3, but the first 2 – one local to my work place and the other a UK Davids Bridal – were my idea of Hell, but I knew I had to go in and try on dresses.  The dress I got was the dress I wanted after months of staring at it online, I dared to dream that it would fit and flatter me and I was very lucky that it did.  It cost me more money than I ever dreamed I would spend on anything but it made me so happy ๐Ÿ™‚  I knew I didn’t need to look anymore.

I went to two stores.

The first one was just to get an idea of shape; I tried on 5-6 there in varying styles and we did find out what I suited but they didn’t really have any lacy dresses in that style at all.

The second shop was on a whim, and actually my sister encouraged us to go when I found out about a black Friday sale. I probably tried on another 6 or so dresses there, and one of them ticked all the boxes for a fantastic price.

I went to two while on holiday in New York City, and then visits shop 3 locally and bought a dress I’d tried on previously in shop 2.

4, and if there had been more in my area that number would be higher! Fortunately the more dresses I looked at the harder the decision was for me so I’m glad I didn’t visit more shops than that in the end.

I went to one Bridal Boutique to try on ONE dress that I had been eyeballing for 2 years and ended up buying it. It was “The One”. Tried on a few other dresses that my mother suggested to make her happy lol.

I went to one- didn’t like the experience and bought a dress online.

I visited one store. I saw the dress online and knew it was the one. I tried it on first and last, with other styles in between just to be sure.

I probably went to 5 or 6 stores, and I’m guessing tried on at least 25-30 dresses. I found two that were both “the one” and I couldn’t choose between them. When I went out of town to visit my family, I got to shop with my mom and sister and showed them my top two but then I found a third “the one” and had the moment in that dress. I was still really on the fence so I didn’t buy it, plus buying from another province would have been a hassle. So I tracked the third dress down when I got home and after trying on a few more at that store that I also really liked, I put the dress on again last and I knew it was perfect! I facetimed with my mom and sister and they agreed this was the one, so I said yes!

ehmmgee :  EXACTLY the same with me!!! 3 shops and went to the last shop 3 times to be sure before pulling the trigger on it! ๐Ÿ˜ I didn’t want to rush a decision and get dress regret!

I have been to 3 stores (one of them I went to twice) and am still so unsure. My mom has been pressuring me to make a decision and it is stressing me out. We are going on the 28th of this month and I’m really hoping to find ‘the one’. I just have this feeling that when I find the right one, I’ll know. And I haven’t ‘known’ yet. Bleh.

I can’t even remember, but easily 10. I always knew picking a dress would be really difficult. There are so many out there that are beautiful. 

Some people choose one early and others don’t – different personalities ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m the worst. Today I went to a shop to buy my Mum’s dress for the wedding, and it was so hard not to have a look around, even though I have my dress now!

I went to three. The first two were in my hometown, one more higher budget than the other, I thought it would be good as a comparison. The last one I went to was the one where I liked a lot of their dresses. I had done a lot of research on-line before as we all do. I considered travelling afar to try on a particular dress which was mermaid style and after trying one on in shop 3 I found it too restrictive around the legs so wrote that one off. I found my dream in dress, which I thought I would do.
