Just curious…who got SUPER emotional and teared up or cried when they put on THE dress in the shop? I hear stories of my friends doing this, but I definitely did not. I probably will the day of….but I had to wear it for like 20 minutes in the store to try it out and make sure I liked it enough to buy it.

I wasn’t sure at first it fit all my visions, but it was only when they were adjusting it with pins so I could imagine it I started crying, I knew it was the One, maybe I was emotional because of the whole process, but it was so white and beautiful and had beautiful beading but it was simple at the same time
my sister said, that’s it she’s crying

Surprisingly, no crying here. I was overcome with joy though. As I was on the pedalstool I was cheesin’ and dancing in the dress because I was so excited which is extremely rare for me because I tend to me shy and timid especially when other people are around.

I didn’t cry, and I can be a weeper. The only thing wedding related (that is, not stress related) that has made me cry has been the acknowledgments and the vows.

I don’t really cry, so I guess I wasn’t surprised when I didn’t get all emotional about the dress. I think i was just excited that I had found one that made me feel great about myself. Excited – yes, Tears – no

I didn’t cry either when I tried on "the one". I just knew it was the one and was exited, but not emotional. Maybe when I put it on the day of the wedding there will be tears!

Another non-teary bride here. I remember being like "Wow, that looks really good" but I didn’t have a vision of what I wanted, so it wasn’t like I stood there and said "This is what I’ve always wanted!" My mom and sister were with me, and when I walked out, they both said "Wow. That looks awesome." Ironically, it was the first dress I tried on, so they were both like "I can’t believe how good the first try is!" We later called my dad to come to the store, and he just started to laugh when he walked in (this is his version of "speechless").

Oh, I cried. And I am NOT a crier. I’d tried on so many dresses probably around 20, before I found The One. And it totally wasn’t what I expected it to be! At first I wasn’t too sure about it, I thought it looked a little funny actually, but then our saleswoman clipped it back so that it fit right and I just couldn’t help myself… TEARS! I looked over and my FMIL and MOH had tears too… we all knew that was it!

Nope, didn’t cry. But I think I will when I have my first dress fitting and I try the dress on in my size for the first time. And I’ll have my FMIL and MOH with me so I’m sure they’ll cry and it’ll make me cry.

I never had one of those "this is the one" moments. That’s just not me. I picked a dress I thought was beautiful and it looked good on me.

I actually cried when I put on a different dress! I had been dress shopping for a while and thought maybe it was the one, but when I went shopping the next weekend and did try on "the one" I just knew. From that moment, I haven’t stopped thinking about it, planning about it, etc… I just keep comparing other dresses to it!

I didn’t cry or anything – I’m not really the type who would have, no matter how perfect of a dress I found. I picked one out that looked great, felt comfortable, and knew I could dance in 🙂

The first dress I put on is The One and I didn’t cry. I’m not really a crier and was just excited that I was trying on a dress that I loved!

Nope, I didn’t cry. I thought I might, but I don’t like getting emotional in front of my mom (we have a great relationship, just not a weepy one). She actually joked that she nearly cried when she saw me in a suit for the first time, but not in my wedding dress. I did have a "moment" when I put on a veil, though. I never thought of myself as a veil girl, but for some reason putting one on made me feel like a bride. The wedding day, however, will be a much different story I’m sure.

There’s no crying in baseball! (from A League of their Own) I didn’t cry. I knew I wouldn’t because I’m just not emotional like that. I sometimes wish I was more in tune with my emotions, but in this case, I was so thrilled with the dress that I could totally tell that I was in love with it!
