      Oooo! Very pretty!

      I found my dress the year before when my friend was getting married. Luckily, she went with another dress, but I knew that the dress she tried on was going to be my dress before I even tried it on. I went back this year, now that I'm getting married, and tried it on and it looked perfect! I tried on 7 more dresses just to make sure I loved my 1st choice and I was right, that was the one!

        That dress looks GREAT on you!!! I absolutely love the train and the lace ... soooo pretty. It fits you so well ... gorgeous, gorgeous!!

        I went to 3 different bridal stores and tried on about 10-20 dresses ... I don't remember exactly because I was just trying on anything really, just to see styles and shapes to figure out what I wanted. :)

          Great choice! I have no idea how many I tried on since it was like 1.5 years ago now, but it was def at the first shop we went to.

                You look great in that dress!

                I tried on 6 dresses, but the "one" was the first dress I tried on.

                  Beautiful dress. I tried on 5 and the 5th one was it! Or so I thought... then I tried on one while my BM's were picking out theirs and I bought that one too! I knew as soon as I put it on. So, technically 6 dresses, but I bought 2 of them. lol (I have since sold the 1st one)

                    Very pretty! Looks great on you, too! I got bored one day and went to the small bridal shop in town, tried on 3 dresses. I loved the 3rd one, so I ordered it! Took me all of 20 minutes to pick out my wedding dress. Everyone thinks Im weird because I didnt bring a posse with me and I didnt bring my Mom, but I always have waaayy better luck shopping alone than with a crew of people.

                      LOVE it!!! It looks gorgeous on you...congrats on finding the (other) one!!!

                      my dress is actually very similar to yours and was the 2nd of 15 dresses I tried on. i knew right away it was the one, but want the dress shopping experience to last longer so I kept throwing them on and prancing around :)
