One day.  Tried on 3 and purchased the least expensive.  I bought it at David’s Bridal at their $99.00 sale.  Now I am looking for a new dress. We changed our wedding date from this November to next April.   My dress won’t fit me by then because of weight loss surgery.

One day. I went to US to see my sister and bought it during one of my last days there. I do have a little dress regret that I didn’t get to try as many dresses as I would have liked to, but I’m overall happy with the purchase

AngelMeyer:  two days, but technically it was only 3 hours! It was 1.5 hours for the first appointment to find shapes and styles I liked and the second visit there was to find THE dress. I only went to one shop as well.

One day. A few hours. It wasn’t a planned outting at all. We went into a consignment shop and it just happened to be there.

One day probably about 2 hrs in total. I tried on 2 dresses at David’s bridal..left and went to another local bridal shop and tried on two there…i knew it was the one when I tried it on so it was pretty quick.

three weeks, but I am a horrible decision maker and I was on a budget. I went to 4 different stores and tried on about 20 dresses. I was looking for a certain style, then after trying a couple on realized it did not flatter me at all, so I had to start over.

It also didn’t help that half the time I was shopping by myself.

About an hour. Tried on five dresses, picked the third.

I went shopping over a 2 or 3-week timeframe, and visited 6 different stores. My dress came from the 3rd store I went to – and I knew after visiting the second to last… and really knew after I visited the last store. My mom just wanted to make sure I had seen everything I wanted to check out.

4-5 days, spanning over 3-4 weekends. As in, I would go visit a bridal shop each weekend. I think I actually found the dress I liked on my 2nd or 3rd appointment, but I wanted to have that dress shopping experience.
