    I was lucky. Tried 4 at a salon and 4 at a bridal show when I found the one!

    I went dress shopping on my own once, then booked a double appointment for a few months later with my actual shopping group. I essentially tried the same dresses on again at one salon, maybe about 6-8 dresses, and another 6-8 at another salon. I had the same one dress in my head from my solo trip, and I had that bridal moment for sure.

    I tried on 3 dresses, I knew what I wanted and knew as soon as I tried on my first dress but tried on a few more to be safe.

    Oh my goodness, I think I maybe tried on about 20-25 between two bridal stores before finding the one! I thought I found the one at the first store, but thank god I waited and tried another store , I knew as soon as I tried it on that it was the one!

    I think I tried on between 5 and 8? All in one day, over about an hour and a half span. I didn't actually keep count, so while it felt like 8 it was probably closer to 5. The actual dress I got I tried on twice.

    I tried on maybe 15 dresses? And my own dress three or four times before I knew it was The One.

    I fell in love with the first dress that I tried on, and knew that it was the one! Everyone who was with me told me that I couldn't buy the only dress I tried on, so I tried on a few more... but I ended up going with the first one!

    15-20 I think. Definitely not more than 20.
    The first shop we went to I tried on 3 or 4, the second one at least 5 and then 5 at the last one.

    About 20...but I'm including the dresses that I tried on only to get a sense for silhouette, and fabric. Personally, I don't think I should count the dresses from stores (4) that didn't make the cut, or that didn't have a plus size offering.

    One of the stores I went to sold exclusively vintage dresses, which I was totally open to, but the experience of trying on old dresses (that didn't fit, and itched), was way less romantic and "vintage" than I thought it would be.Smiley atonished

    If I only count the "intentional" dresses from the store I ended up buying my dress from, the answer is 7....so yeah, I tried on 7 dresses.

    I think somewhere around 15-20. My appointment was only supposed to be 1.5 hours and ended up being 3. I am also very decisive sometimes so as soon as it was on if I didn’t like it, it was off!

    I think I tried a total of 9 dresses. Was debating between two of them. Went back to try both on, by myself, and picked the dress then.

    I stopped counting at 75. I tried on well over 100, at about a dozen salon visits. But I finally found the one!
