It truly depends on the lady.  I found my dress the first time shopping and bought it without hesitation!  I never regretted it and still love it today (more then 2 years after I purchased it).  If it’s what you love, don’t worry about how many or few times you might have dress shopped!  🙂

It does depend, I only went once and found the dress on the 5th dress…. so it really depends

I went out 6 times before I found my dress. However once I found it I didnt even have to go home and think about it.

On the 1st visit. 🙂 Consultant was pulling dresses, it caught my eye, so I pulled it not knowing it would be it. Tried it on – got the feeling that was it but was afraid to buy on my 1st visit. So, I came back for a 2nd visit to try on the top contenders and to verify that’s the one I wanted and purchased. 

There is no normal number of times. When you find something that has everything you want and gives you that feeling that you want to just stop looking, that’s the one. Doesn’t matter if you’ve made 1 visit or 100.

It was the first visit.  It was the very first dress I tried on.

I found my dress before ever leaving home. I did so much online shopping that I narrowed it down to 4 dresses before I stepped in a dress shop. I went alone and tried on all 4 dresses and narrowed it down to 2. I took my mom back with me and choose my dress fromm those two after her opinion. I knew I thought I wanted my dress from the first trip but I wanted my moms opinion to make it official.

I went to three different stores on three different days. I found the dress at the second store!

Date twin! I found mine on the first day I looked, first store…about the 9th dress in. It was however very similar to the 2nd one I liked, and the ones in the middle were just for fun to try on!

I was super lucky and found my dress on the first and only day we went shopping! It was the second dress I tried on.

So far I’ve gone six times and have not purchased a gown yet.  However, I have narrowed it down to two so I feel like I’m moving in the right direction.

Haha I went probably 7 times…I tried on over 60 dresses before I found my dress. I had a really hard time, I found a lot of dresses that looked great and I am sure I could have been happy with, but that just made me wonder if any of them were right! When I found mine, I didn’t want to try any more on, and it combined all the things I had loved about all the other dresses. But even then, I had to walk away from the dress and think about it before I committed.

One.  My first dress was my dream dress.  I tried on basically every dress in the boutique after, and nothing compared.

I went to two stores on the same day. I found my dress at the second shop, but I waited to purchase it because I just wasn’t sure if I wanted to look around more. After a few days I couldn’t get that dress off of my mind so I knew it was right for me. : )  The only problem I had was this website. I bought my dress pretty early on so seeing some other dresses on here gave me a bit of dress envy. Then I would go pull it out of the closet and I would forget about all those other dresses again.
