Hello beautiful people 馃挄


When I went dress shopping I tried on 6 dresses all in different styles before finding the one! Orginally we went just to see the styles but I fell madly in love with my dress so I bought it!

How many dresses did you all try on before you said yes to the dress! 馃グ

    I鈥檇 say 10 dresses. I tried on three different occasions. One time I went with my sister to pick up her wedding dress in 2019 and they let me try on without having appointment with them. The second time I went to a bridal pop up show in ottawa and I got my dress in January 2020. However, we keep postponing the wedding due to covid, I feel like my dress don鈥檛 wow me anymore!! 馃槶馃槶 I love Martina Liana but her prices are way over my budget. When Essense Of Australia had a trunk show, I had to go check it out!! The second dress that I saw on the rack, I knew it was the one!! I don鈥檛 want to say yes to the second dress I tried on so I tried on two more then said yes to the dress that I like from the beginning without having to try it on. So I said yes to my dress in March 2021!! I knew exactly the style I want making it so easy!!

    I found my dress at the first shop I went to, tried on about 7-8 different styled dresses before I found mine.

    I had 2 visits, so I think collectively I tried on 12-15 (hard to remember), the majority of that was my mother and cousin wanting me to try on different styles of dresses. The first day I thought I may have found "the" dress, I was big on the dress being light since I will be getting married in August. The consultant convinced me to come back for a second visit to make sure this was the one. I ended up picking an entirely different dress but it was both light and provided a nice corset! I am glad she convinced me to come back!

    That is exactly what you should feel when you find the one!!!! I still feel that way when I try my dress on, the last time I tried it on with my shoes and everything I started to cry! It was such a surreal moment I couldn't believe it was me!
    Now for you to count down till you wear it for real!!! I'm at 52 days today 馃グ

    One bridal shop, I think it was the 4th dress I put on. I didn't even realize I wanted the dress I picked, the second I put it on I felt the "IT" feeling every bride talks about. I could see myself walking down the aisle, dancing in it, heck, I didn't want to take it off at all!

    I went to 4 places in one day and tried on probably around 40 dresses and it ended up being the very last one that I tried on that I fell in love with!

    Right! Everything happens for a reason. I remember being so sad about the first dress. Now I'm as much in love with the second one!

    Under 10 dresses? I don't remember lol

    I went to 3 different shops. Fell in love with one, but couldn't have it because they didn't have my size anymore and the alterations would have cost too much and I wasn't guaranteed the same end result.

    Fell in love with another dress at the last shop I went too and said yes to the dress!

    It was nice to try on which styles I liked at the store but the best I could find was to rent a dress for $1000 I couldn't do it

    My fiancee went to 2 dress shops and said yes to the dress at the second one. I think she tried 3 or 4 in that particular shop.

    I hated trying on dresses. I didn't find anything that didn't start at over a thousand dollars. I actually had more luck buying online. Though I did change my dress after I bought one. Even still both dresses were under $500 so I dont worry too much about the dress I'll never wear

    Haha yes that is for sure the same as me... trying on everyone elses ideas and thoughts and different styles!

    Oh my goodness, that must of been a moment for sure... clearly your mom sister and self knew what you would like better than the helper. but atleast you tried one! I did too and hated it soooo much haha.

    I had one I loved it was super simple almost reminded me of getting married in a church and has POCKETS but that was for sure my moment of "im trying on dresses this is real" same with the dress I ended up getting... I felt that way before I got the belt and vieil on. once I got those on I had the "this is the one moment" It was amazing. Although my mom didnt cry with this one she cried with another lace one similar so she was all teared out hahaha Smiley xd

    Oh my goodness this dress is stunning! its so pretty! you rock that princess dress girl! because you are a princess or even a queen on your wedding day! I love the simple yet so detailed parts of the dress!!!! OMG POCKETS are the best! Thats one thing I wish if i went the route of princess I would of gotten the one with pockets hahaha My dress is aline, leaf lace low back so it shows my tattoo on my shoulder and is form fitting to my waist then goes flowy with a slit its stunning! I also have a 2nd short to long dress with POCKETS I love it Smiley smile
