I’m watching Say Yes to the Dress and every single bride had her “moment” and cried and hugged her mothers and sisters and so on after trying on so many dresses. I tried on 4, and picked the order that I tried them on and of course I knew that the 4th one was for me. I was all smiles and ready to order it and very excited, but not emotional and certainly no tears.
Was anyone elses experience like mine? I know all brides are different but I am curious if there are other bees who didn’t cry.

I knew the exact one I wanted, went, tried it on, giggled a bit and bought it!
Generally, I am a cryer. But when FI proposed.. I laughed. When I found my dress.. I laughed. I hope I don’t laugh during our ceremony!

@CestTresJolie14: You must be in my living room with me! I am watching and thinking the same thing. It almost has me thinking I didn’t try hard enough!

Did not cry. I think when people do, it’s genuine, but the idea that everyone SHOULD is manufactured by the WIC. “One Perfect Day” has a chapter all about this. You should give it a read if you’re feeling bothered by your feelings (or lack thereof) toward your dress.

I didn’t cry at all either. But before it was even laced up, I knew it was my dress.

I didn’t cry and I think that’s why I had a small case of dress regret. I thought I was supposed to and since I didn’t maybe I should keep looking. I kind of wish I could have a moment like that with my dress, but honestly it’s just not me.

Nope, no crying for me. I’ll cry at stupid commercials and ridiculous tv movies, but not for my dress.

I do NOT cry. Ever. However, when I found my dress, I had one lone tear threatening to fall… but I held it in lol 🙂

I didn’t cry and I felt really weird. I even commented to the salespeople that I felt obligated to cry. I’m not much of a crier over sentimentality, so it would’ve been really weird if I cried about this issue.

I didn’t cry, I wish I had though; I feel like the PP who said the not crying leads to a little bit of dress regret.

I giggled, did a little dance, raised the roof and shook my booty! No tears! I LOVED my dress.

I purchased my dress from Kleinfelds and did not cry over my dress and I LOVED it!! It took me a few dress sitting and a cooling off period but it was THE ONE. You can show emotion through various ways versus crying. The question is – did you love your dress?

@CestTresJolie14: Keep in mind that the people on Say Yes to the Dress are of a certain type…the type who would join a reality show about choosing a wedding dress.

I did not cry. I think people put too much pressure on brides for that…

Nope I didn’t shed a tear neither did my mum or my nan. They felt emotional but no tears shed. But that didn’t mean that the experience was anything less or any less emotional!!
