    I didn’t count but I feel like about 50 dresses.  It was probably one of the most frustrating things for me in the planning.  I seriously thought I wouldn’t find one for awhile!!

    I tried on close to 50 dresses and I ended up getting the first one I tried on…ever!

    The first dress I tried on was the one.  However, I thought that was too easy and too impulsive, so I tried on a bunch more (about 4-5) and realized the one is well….the one.

    I went dress shopping only one day, tried on 5, and picked the 3rd dress or so. In hindsight, I wish I would have tried on a LOT more dresses!  That’s kind of a rite of passage that I kind of breezed through.

    I tried on 40-50 dresses and never quite found the one, all the dress consultants I went to in the beginning didn’t listen to what I wanted and kept bringing me some of the fugliest dresses.

    I’ve tried on SOOO many (lost count) and haven’t had the "OMG THIS IS THE ONE" feeling. I have a few more months until I HAVE to order it….so i guess I better keep trying!

    @ali945– I love that of all those dresses it was the first!! =)

    The one I ended up buying was probably the 5th or 6th dress I tried, but I tried on lots and lots more afterwards. I couldn’t get THE dress out of my head for weeks afterwards, and I knew I had to go back and buy it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I tried on 20-30 dresses before I found The Dress.  I thought I was looking for something completely different when I started shopping.  It wasn’t until I started trying things on that I changed my mind.

    My dress was the very first one I tried on! I tried about about 30 after that one, but kept referring to the first one as MY dress. And now it is!

    I didn’t count, but it was likely somewhere around 30. I nearly settled on a dress somewhere around the 25 count, putting it on hold to come back after I tried one last shop, but found "the one" in about the 3rd dress I tried on at the next store.

    I didn’t count but I did an average of 6 per store and 11 stores.  You can do the math ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Of course it is like that with everything I do.  I saw nearly 100 houses before I bought mine, and when I applied to residency, most people interview at between 5-10… not me, I had to check out 21.

    What can I say, I like options!

    I think I tried on around 4 or 5 before finding the one ๐Ÿ™‚
