Most people don’t get super emotional over a dress, it’s just a piece of clothing I don’t get why some people freak out over it. I tried on 6 dresses, picked the third one and went home. Sure, you’re going to get married in it, but it’s just one day. The dress looks great on you, I wouldn’t worry about the lack of emotion.

What a “wow” dress! I didn’t get really emotional in the moment either. I couldn’t stop thinking about my dress for the few weeks in between first trying it on and actually buying it, but when we actually decided to say “yes” neither me, my mum nor my grandma cried. We were just happy.

@kaleko:  I didn’t cry when I found my dress, but I definitely loved it and was excited. Your face in the pic doesn’t look very happy at all- if you are not the over-emotional sort there’s nothing wrong with that! You love your dress and don’t have to jump up and down with glee to prove you are happy. It looks fab on you:)

It’s beautiful on you!

I didn’t have an emotional yes to the dress either, but I knew the dress was “my dress.” I’m not super emotional and enthusiastic about anything anyway. 🙂

Some people just can’t fall in love with a dress, and that’s beyond fine!

You have a dress you like and that looks FANTASTIC on you! COngrats!

The day I bought my dress. I look positively annoyed. I love my dress so much, but I never get giddy trying it on. Lol.

I didn’t get emotional about the dress, until after my last fitting. It was like everything was coming together! And I was marrying my man in a couple weeks FINALLY!

Okay I will get emotional for you then oh em gee that dress is like a dream on you 🙂 I’m glad you picked a dress and realized that you were not going to get emotional when you found the one. Some people just don’t.

I wouldn’t worry about not crying or whatever. People show emotion in differernt ways. You’ll be surprised at some point or other– the emotion will come!

Also, I LOVE that gown!!!!!

No emotional moment here either. I think hollywood and TV shows have ruined women by forcing them to think that if they’re not OMG OVER THE TOP, something is wrong.

I bought my dress because I liked it the most. I didn’t get excited for the wedding or the dress, I just bought it, wore it and put it in the closet.

I didn’t have a moment with my first dress…figured it was just in the movies….but then when things didn’t work out with that bridal salon I stumbled across a different dress…and much to my amazement….I HAD A MOMENT!  It was so weird (I’m not an overly emotional person) but I tried it on and just had full butterflies, giddy, twirly, little girl OMG this is it kind of moment.  So I will say that yes it does exist 🙂  I didn’t cry though so not sure if crying makes it not your typical bridal moment….I would have been happy with my first dress too but I’m pretty glad that things went wrong so I could get my IT dress 🙂

I felt the same way, it was just a dress and I knew the look I was going for so I found one and that was that!  I ended up buying the first dress I tried on, but I tried on a few more in different styles but went back to the first one.  It was super easy, I just made an appointment and left with a dress ordered, no drama :-)!
