I had the same experience as you! Found my dress online and drove 3 hours to the only shop on the west coast that carried it.

It was the ONLY dress I ever tried on and I paid in full on the spot.

I totally wish I had tried on other styles even though I knew this was my dress.

It was tea length and I never got to see what I looked like in a full length ball gown.

I was joking with a friend that I should pretend like I’m not married yet and go try on dresses just to get it out of my system.

I went to the salon with a specific tea-length dress in mind, but my consultant also pulled a whole bunch of other dresses so that I could see if I liked anything else more.  I ended up buying the one I went there for, but I’m glad I got to try on some fit-and-flare and ball gowns.

I’m mostly happy just to be done dress shopping.  I’m not a big fan of trying on tons of clothes, so I was glad to get it done early.

I didn’t go to  a shop and try on dresses at all. I just bought online. I really didn’t want to go dress shopping, the idea was not exciting to me at all. But one day I’m sure I’ll wish I had the experience.

Hey, some of us try on over 100 dresses and still don’t find what we were looking for. I’d say you’re a lucky girl that you found something you loved so easily! Now you can concentrate on all the other fun aspects of the wedding. When I think back to my dress shopping; I remember stress, frustration, confusion, indecision, lots of driving and lots of time and money waisted on wrong choices. I wouldn’t be too jealous of that ๐Ÿ™‚

I felt the same way! The same day I got engaged I jumped online and googled a black andw hite wedding dress and one of the first pics that popped up was Maggi Sottero’s dress. I called the closest bridal shop (fortunately only 45 mins away), actually paid money for them to have the dress shipped to them and tried it on a week later.  I had to wedge my size 14 bod into a size 10 (they send you whatever size they want) and ofcourse it looked all funky, but I just knew that once I got my size that it was the dress! I actually went and tried on other dresses after I ordered it because I thought I missed out on an experience. Ofcourse nothing compares to my dress, but I went just to be able to say I tried on more than one dress! ๐Ÿ™‚
