    Yes ... keep trying until you are sure you have found "the one"

    No ... Stop torturing yourself already - just buy the one you think it is

    I think you should definitely go for it.  I actually purchased the first dress i tried on..tried it on, reallllly liked it, tried a few more on, and still could not stop thinking about the first one and was convinced that it was “the one” if you pass it up, u may keep on thinking about it and might regret not buying it…i say, just buy it=)

    You’ve tried on so many, and if you keep thinking of this one, get it. But if you feel like you’re still uncertain, I’d go try that one on again just to be sure. just don’t draw it out too long, you’ll second guess yourself over and over the longer you wait. Good luck!

    walk away.

    just remember the feeling you had trying on ‘your’ dress. that amazing feeling where you can imagine walking down the aisle to your best friend in ‘your’ dress. that’s it. you’re okay. you found your dress.

    i went the other way – from mermaid or antiquey lace to very delicate classic a-line (paloma blanca 3860). i doubted it too at first, but it was right. the wait from the ordering day to first fitting appointment was stressful and painful. but the second i put on my dress at the first fitting, that inital feeling came back. the day of the wedding i truly don’t think i ever looked down at my dress. i was beaming all day. but in the pictures, i look comfortable and see the day as i had imagined at the dress store.

    good luck!

    I think that whether you stop trying dresses on now and buy it, or keep searching until you’re sure, the thing you should absolutely, positively do is STOP looking at and trying on dresses once you’ve made the purchase.

    It’ll drive you nuts. If you’re sure when you make the purchase, you just have to stop looking.

    But seriously, after 30-40 dresses, I’d just try it one one or twice more, and then if you still love it, get it. I ended up with a dress that was not what I imagined me wearing at all.
