Going to try dresses on for the first time next weekend (excited much!!) I’ve been told by someone that even if I fall in love with a dress there, she recommends looking else where just incase you find something better.. what’s your opinion?
Hi I think it depends on if you are really sure it is the dress or how much time you have to continue looking :)
I think if you fall in love with it, then walk away and see other dresses but you still compare it to that one.. then that’s the dress. X
I bought my dress from the first bridal shop I went too, after trying 5 others on first. I knew it was the one for me, I can't wait to wear it. Sometimes when you know, you know x
The first shop I went into and the first dress I tried on I bought.... it was perfect everything and more I hoped it to be xxxx
I think when you know you know.
I found my dress first outing but always knew I wanted 2 dresses. One of the evening too so that I could dance.
I ordered the dress straight away and then enjoyed some other dress shopping afterwards.
All in all, I only went to 3 shops and bought 2 dresses. X
If it’s the one, why would you need to go elsewhere?
Just in case is isn’t the one?
If you question at all that it isn’t the one, then you should keep looking. But if you find “IT”, then stop.
If you fall in love with a dress try another after n you'll know if you feel like your in someone else's dress! If you took your friends advice and went back and your dress was gone you would be gutted! When I looked in mirror looking a mess in my dress all I could see was myself some up n my now husbands reaction! I felt absolutely stunning in my dress even tho I didn't walk in feeling my best n have low self esteem! X don't walk away from that feeling x
I’m going dress shopping for two weekends in a row. I don’t intend to buy anything on those two weekends tbh xxx
I got my dress at the first shop. In fact it was the first dress I tried. I tried another 7 after but went back to the first and didn't want to take it off. I knee that was the dress and never looked back x
My advice is u can never see or try on too many dresses. If u have the time & the budget then all u need do is ask the stores advice about time needed to get the dress in good luck xxx
When you know, you know. First time I went dress shopping, I thought I was just going for a browse but I found the one and had to have it. I'm not getting married til Aug 2019 but I don't care cause I found the dress that I love :) I wouldn't bother looking anywhere else cause it's just tormenting yourself. Just trust your instincts and don't worry what anyone else thinks! X
My mother told me the same but the dress I chose was the one from the first shop and the third dress I tried on. The dress I chose was a dress I didnt like at all on the hanger but looked awesome when I put it on
I have tried on around 40 dresses, and you know when it’s the right one. You feel like a better version of you.
Also, don’t pay too much attention to anyone else’s opinion. You’re the one who needs to feel like a million pounds in it, not anyone else. I found my dress in October and put my order in last Saturday. If it’s current season, it’ll still be there in a couple of months.
Most importantly, enjoy it!! No one plans on doing it more than once x
I fell in love with the first dress I put on. Still tried the others and even went to a different shop but I couldn't get that first one out of my mind and nothing compared so I went back and ordered it. No point looking around too much if you have already fallen in love.
I bought my dress from the first bridal shop I went to, it was the 2nd dress I tried on but I tried around 12 in total, after the 2nd I just kept comparing them all to that one & the lady in the shop said, I think you’ve already made your decision...
Trust your heart! If you love why walk away you’ll only confuse yourself! I picked my wedding dress after walking into a shop and seeing it on the rail! Tried it on said yes to the dress and paid £80 deposit! When I got home I’d saved a pic on my phone 4 weeks earlier without realising and it was the same dress!!!
Totally agree, I bought the first dress that I fell in love with, what a mistake. I then saw another dress which I actually got married in
I would say walk away compare and if your still drawn to it after another session of wedding dress shopping go back for it.
I tried a dress on at a wedding fair the other week, 4th dress I'd had on. I fell in love with it and placed an order. I don't want to look for anymore. I didn't even make it to a bridal shop. When you know you know. You could go and try other's on, you may find another or go back for the first one. There is no right or wrong. Xxx
I think the first one you like you will get I looked at loads I'm still in love with the first one I picked
Try others, if you fall in love with one, get the details and price, then in your mind, put that dress in a box and compare every other to it. I was all ready to order my dress, loved it, went to a 2nd bridal shop and she explained the box thing above and then each dress I tried on compared it against that one, I’m glad I did as I ended up ordering a completely different dress from the first one!
I was told that also. I went To my first shop and fell in love with a dress there. I agreed to look at other dresses but made an appointment to go back and buy it in a few weeks as i thought it was the one. The last shop I went to was wed2b and I honestly didn't expect to find anything I wanted. But I found my dream dress which I absolutely loved and it was even in my size which was perfect. I would defo agree. Try on a few others then decide. Xx
I fell in love with one, But my mum made me keep looking, as she wanted to come with me. I am so lucky she did, as I found the one with her. If you look at other dresses and still keep thinking about the first one, then it's the one! Good luck, you'll have so much fun! X
I didn't try on a single dress. I knew in my head what I wanted and started shopping online 2.5 years before the wedding (when we first got engaged) and could not find a single dress that had all my important features (neckline, material, sleeves, etc). So in the end I had one custom made (actually much cheaper than store bought ones). So the first time I ever tried on a dress was 3m before my wedding and it was one made specifically to my design. So I guess I'm saying if you know what you want, then you know what you want; why shop around and overwhelm yourself. X
Bought the only one I tried on x
When you know you know... just like with the person you're marrying first trip to a dress store... 3rd dress I tried on. Me and mum knew it was the right one.
I went to get my dress tried 4 on didn't feel it. Tried the last on one my mum mother in law and MOH and my self all cried it was the one bought it and took it home with me that day
Im looking around but because I like a bargain! I found a beautiful dress last week but its slightly out of my budget so I have doubts as I need alterations. Going to a HeartsBride fair this week to have a look around and see if anything stands out to me
Ive been told if you have no faults with the dress and your completely in love with it. Then that’s the one.
If you have any doubt then keep looking, but if you find one that seems perfect, you’ll do nothing but compare other dresses to the one you love.
I fell in love with my dress after only trying on 3 others before it, I knew it was the one, i did try on more but after my dress nothing else felt the same, so I’d say go with your gut and heart xx
I tried on 3 went to a second shop and saw it in the window knew instantly that was the one and bought it
I brought a dress from the first bridal shop I went too.. id got other appointments booked but I didn't want to go to them, we called and cancelled the appointments because I knew that was the dress I wanted and I'm so glad I did, good luck ♥️
I agree. I went to over 10 bridal boutiques and fell in love with different dresses. Always took a pic. Then a few days later looked back and would whittle it down. I then got down to 2 dress. Completely different. However the day I had set to make my decision a dress that had caught my eye a couple of times but was everything I said I didn't want the shop lady suggested I tried on. That was the one I think i knew it was. So that meant I needed to take the plunge. The last shop I tried on the huge princess my mom loved and I had loved also. I stayed in it in the shop for an hour Danced in it, sat in it, walked in it. I then did the same in the other. My decision in the end came down to comfort and it was dress to that did it... that was the best decision I made!!!
I tried about 4-5 dresses on and ended up going for the first one I tried on because I absolutely loved it! X
Don't buy on the first visit! I bought mine thinking I had fallen in love with the first dress I tried on.... 6 months later and now I'm having second thoughts. I should have taken more time to consider all the options. I jumped in too quickly....
I work in a bridal shop and we see a lot of brides who come and try dresses on a d fall in love with a dress then come back few weeks/months later and we o longer have the dress available to order for in stock or the price has gone out of their budget as designers increase their prices throughout the year. When you find your dress you'll know. You'll love it and not want to take it off. If you still want to go look other places that's great but I'd do it within a shorter time frame to make sure if you do love a dress you aren't disappointed in not being able to get it xx
I tried on loads of dresses and thought I found my one. But then when I went to my final dress shop I tried on a style I didn't think I would like and ended up picking that one as I fell in love with it straight away. You just know when it's the one as you feel amazing and look stunning. I have kept it a secret also from my wedding party except my sister. Can't wait till see everyone's faces now
I fell in love with a dress in one shop but never tried it on however, whenever I went to the shop, I was always drawn to it so booked an appointment. Then I went to another shop in a different area...a walk in...and tried on a few dresses. I fell in love with a new dress but didn't buy it because I hadn't had my appointment yet. On the day of my appointment in the original shop, I showed them pictures of the other dress that I'd tried on and they attempted to get one similar but it just didn't feel or fit right. I then tried on the one I'd loved in the first place and I felt like a princess in it and definitely didn't want to take it off... so I bought it. Based on that experience, if you are drawn to a particular dress, even if you like other dresses, the one you liked the most will be in the back of your mind and you will not be happy without it. Everyone said that I was glowing in the one that I chose and can't wait till it arrives and alterations are done in time for my big day.
I tried on dresses for the first time last weekend. I tried loads, found the style that suits me and my body, now I know what to look for, I can book other places. After all you only do this once try as many as you like on. Till you find the one x good luck x
