    I tried on 5 dresses in total. Wasn't overly thrilled with my first 4 choices. The last one that I put on, I just knew it was it! Everything I ever envisioned wearing for my wedding.

    About five. But I knew all along the first one was THE one!

    I had my eye on a dress literally a week after I got engaged Christmas Morning 2017. Had seen it on a mannequin in a window of a bridal store. I hadn't even thought of dresses at this point and my wedding was still 2 and a half years away.

    Fast forward a year later (January 2019) and the same bridal store had the same dress again in the window. I told my mom and MOH that this dress was calling my name. We went a week later to the store. I tried on probably 15 dresses before "that dress" and when I put on "that dress" I knew the minute I put it on, it was the one! Bought the dress that day!

    I tried on 3 dresses before finding my wedding dress. I didn't want to say yes right away so I went to another bridal shop that same day and tried on another 4. Still went back and bought that dress I loved Smiley heart

    I went to one Bridal Shop and tried on maybe 8-10? The first one I put on was the winner! I tried it on 4 times in store just so I could wear it more.. Smiley tongue

    If I am counting/remembering right, 36. First 8 were at solo a trip to David's Bridal to try and narrow down a colour a a style than a focused search if that makes a difference *shrugs*

    Probably over 20, I was rather indecisive, but amongst them, I did find it. 😊

    I went to one store and tried on 11, but it was number 8 that I fell in love with! It was looking at me out of the corner of my eye the whole time and my friends were like ''NOOOOO" until I put it on and then they were happily shocked....it's the wild card choice! Smiley heart

    I probably tried on about 30-40 dresses. I was pretty set on the brand I wanted, but the brand has 3 separate lines and so I tried on dresses from each line each time the bridal store had a trunk show to make sure I looked at all my options.

    I think I tried on about 12 different dresses but the dress that I fell in love with was actually the first one that I tried on.

    I'm in the lost count boat. From what I could count from photos at least 27!

    I tried on about 50 dresses (apparently I'm more indecisive than I thought!)

    I ended up buying a dress at my last appointment that I had been looking at for a while... I'm not super confident in my decision, so hopefully when it comes in and I can try in on again I'll have some piece of mind!

    I can't remember an exact number but probably at least 4 at each of the 3 stores so anywhere from 12-20. My dress was the last one I tried on but the first one I saw.

    Wedding outfits were the ones we got the first time around. Parents bought mine when travelling and husband bought his in person along with accessories.

    That was last weekend for me - probably tried on about 15. Dress #15 was the winner and I am so glad it was. It was an overwhelming experience.

    I must've tried on 15-20, can't remember exactly.

    2 were tied: the first one I tried on and the last one I tried on. I ended up with the last dress lol

    My mom and I went to a pop up sale (mostly for fun and inspiration) and I tried about 15-20 dresses that day.
    When we booked an appointment at a local salon I tried about a dozen more, a few of which were instantly rejected! I found my dress that day, I think it was one of the first ones pulled but the 5th or 6th one I tried on.

    I kind of lost count. I have pictures of 7 but I kind of rapidly tried on a few after finding mine to be sure it was the one

    I don't quite remember - but I would assume that I tried on somewhere between 4 and 7?
