How many dresses did you try on?

How many dresses did you try on before you found the one? I saw a bride on syttd that tried on 100 dresses. That is just insane, lol. I personally couldn't even try on my dress because I bought it at a Salvation Army Thrift Store with NO FITTING ROOMS, lol, seriously. As soon as I got home, I probably jumped out of the car while it was still moving because I just KNEW it would fit perfectly, and it did!

I think I tried on around 100 dresses.  I went to at least 26 different stores looking for "the dress".  It averages to less than 4 dresses per store.  I know some were more and some were less.  Then I ended up buying it on the internet.

Lets see 4 at davids bridal, 4 at local bridal shop, 3 at the same shop later, then 3 at davids bridal, then I ended up spur of them moment buying my dress from a bride selling a sameple one because it didn't fit her. I knew I had to have it because it was everything I knew I wanted and it was in my price range. Thankfully it fit!

So 15 including mine.

I saw that episode of SYTTD! lol. I tried on about 10-15...bought the last one I tried!


I LOVE my dress, but going back, I was a little more nonchalant than I would have liked to be. I wish I tried on more. haha

I tried on 5 or 6.  I think my dress was #3, but I wanted to be sure and everything after #3 I compared to my dress.

I bought mine at the first shop I went to! Lol. I only tried on 5 dresses. Mine was the last one. We were getting ready to call it a day at that shop when I spotted her across the room. It was a match made in heaven when I tried her on:)

I must have gone to five or six salons... at least, and tried on 7-8 dresses at each place... I finally went to Demetrios Bridal, picked 4 dresses to try on and fell in LOVE with the first one... didn't even try on the others. THAT was an EASY day!! lol
