One day, one trip, 5th dress – fell in love, cried, bought ๐Ÿ™‚ Davids Bridal for $1,050 with a $200 veil. I adore it, even 11 months later!

About 1 hour. It was the 3rd or 4th I tried.

1 week. My first appointment was on Sunday and my next appointment was the following Saturday. My dress was the 2nd or 3rd gown I tried on at my second appointment. ๐Ÿ™‚

One day. Went to a bridal salon and a David’s Bridal. Hated all the dresses, hated the experience. Went online and bought my knock off that night. It showed up on my doorstep 2 weeks later and was perfect!

ummm….6-7 days of shopping? Spread out over a month. One of those “days” was just one shop, about an hour. Another was a marathon whole day of shopping. I took my time, for sure. Had to be so sure! (not counting online research!)

4 months. It took me forever to find a dress. I went to 8 or 9 stores but multiple times.

Two days. I fell in love with the very first dress I tried on, but went to a few more appointments to make sure that it was the right one. A few days later, I went back to try it on again and purchased it. I’m SO glad I found something right away that I loved, because I’m incredibly indecisive and I think it would have taken me forever to choose otherwise.

3 weeks, bought a dress and now I think it wasnt the one. ๐Ÿ˜€ But I dont remember other because taking pictures was not allowed so… I hope I will like them once I try them on again.

About 30 minutes. I found one on the David’s website that I loved. They only had it on a clearance rack in like a size 18 so the girl found the next closest thing. It was perfect! I tried on two others after, but they were just really not doing it for me.

I looked online for mooooonths. Made a few plans to go to bridal shops but it never ended up happening. Until I was on spring break, visiting my now in-laws, made a last minute trip to a local bridal shop with Mother-In-Law. After about a couple hours, finally decided on a dress.

The day I bought my dress was actually a day I set aside just to try some on for fun and to see what fits my body. It was the first time I had tried on any dresses and ended up trying on about 12 of them. I fell in love with the first dress I tried on that day and started crying after putting in on one last time after the other 11. All in all it took me about 2 hours to pick my dress and it turned out being a totally different style than what I origionally wanted and isn’t something I would typically wear but I love it.

One day. I was home on leave and my mom and I were just going out “to look” at dresses. Tried on a few and totally fell in love with one! Had I planned to go shopping for dresses, I think I would have only taken a day or a few trips since I knew what I liked. HUGE fan of “Say Yes to the Dress” after all. ๐Ÿ™‚
