I would have to see you in it to give you my opinion what it looks like on you but, yes it is possible. I found my gown at the first salon I went to and I only tried on 5 gowns. I think it was the 4th gown I tried on. And I purchased it 1 1/2 years before our wedding.

I think it is definitely possible!  The first day I looked I found 2 that I was ok with but was really unsure as didn’t have the oh my gosh this is it feeling.

I have only been one more time and I am 99% sure I have found mine!  If you have that feeling then go for it.  

@mrs puffafish: I agree – if you do end up getting it then definitely stop looking!

My dress was the 2nd one I tried on. ๐Ÿ™‚ I did the same thing as you, I wasnt even really looking for one. I happened to have my Mum with me at the time and we both just knew it was that one!! I say wait a week or two and then go back and see if you still love it. Take a couple of friends that will give you constructive critisism too. ๐Ÿ™‚

I found mine on the first day and I purchased it too!!  I tried on a total of about 6-7 dresses and it was dress #5.  I loved it then, I loved it when I got it in my hot little hands, I loved it at my wedding and I love it still today!  ๐Ÿ˜€

I bought the very first dress I tried on and didn’t need or want to try anything else!  However, I did do a lot of research online beforehand so I went in knowing what i wanted.

I think it’s absolutely possible, but I’d recommend going to more stores and trying others on because you don’t lose anything by doing this.

I found mine on my second trip to a bridal salon. But I kept trying dresses on later, and it just helped me realize how perfect the other one was when I didn’t see anything else I really loved.

@[email protected]: Yeah it’s possible and I’ve heard about 70% of brides choose the first dress they try on.

Yes it is! My dress was the very first dress I ever tried on! Of course I tried on others to make sure it was the dress for me but ended up coming back to that one because it was “the one”.

I bought my dress 1 1/2 yrs before- went to a bridal shop that stocked a dress I’d fallen in love with in a magazine. Tried her on. Loved her. Didn’t want to take her off. Bought her! Did try on one more in a similar style to make sure (always knew I wanted a tulle ballgown) but knew dress 1 was the one for me and then she was mine!

Have to say though I spent months looking at millions of dresses online, know what suits me and am very decisive with things like this so know I won’t have dress regret. People are different, but you seem sure so I say- go for it! Good luck!

To you question… absolutely!  If you love it, then get it.  I didn’t quite buy my dress on the first day.  I went to DB about a week before my mom and Future Mother-In-Law came down for a day of shopping so I could get an idea of what I liked – definitely not intending to buy a dress and I didn’t really like anything I tried on, but I guess that was oficially my first day of shopping.  But then the next week when mom and Future Mother-In-Law came down and we went shopping, and I found my dress.  The fourth or fifth one I tried on that day.
