    I tried on about 75 dresses!!  I was about to give up and just order the jcrew sophia out of desperation when I finally found my dress at a store I had already visited three times.  Yay for perseverence!

    My wedding was originally next January, very formal winter wedding, and the dress I picked out for that was the first or second I tried on. I tried on more, but fell in love wth the one. BUT we moved the wedding to this May, and it’s a really casual, light, spring-y wedding, so the original dress was out. Now I’m having mine custom made, because what I liked was several elements from different dresses, time’s short, and it’s cheaper! So I said I tried on 6-10 dresses, but in the end, none of them were the one, they were just parts of it!

     I honestly don’t know how many dresses I tried on. I know we tried 6 in traditional stores , but we went to The Running of the Brides and I feel like I tried on dozens there!!  My arms ached for days from lifting the dresses from to and from the racks.

    I think I tried on about 5 before I found my gown. Then I went and tried on a whole bunch more but came back to "the One."

    I tried on probably 15 or so, and then bought my dress online having never tried it on or seen it in person, and had only tried on the brand (Maggie Sottero) in a size too large. Daring:)

    I probably tried on around 20.  I ended up with one of the first ones I had seen on the internet.  I had sooo much dress shopping- I think I tried on dresses just for the fun!
