Or is it just on TV?
The first time I went dress shopping, I found a dress that I loved, it was the 2nd dress I tried on, and no other dress I tried on that day could beat it!
I went looking at another store and found another dress that I loved, but was a totally different style…so now I’m totally confused.
I’ve been to several other stores, and haven’t found anything I liked. I can keep looking, but am still confused…I keep searching for that moment…
Did you know the instant you put on your dress that it was THE dress?

Yes I had that moment today. I honestly tried on about 40 dresses and was worried that I will settle and never feel fully in love but today proved me wrong. I put it on and loved it, asked the girl to leave it in the room while I tried on few more. I tried it on again and said this is the one. The moment I said it I wanted to cry, the emotion was so strong and all in the room cried too, they all could see that it is the one. The moment does exist.

I dont think everyone gets that “ah ha!” moment. I dont think I even fully had it. It took my mom being so in love with it to fully convince me. But I do love it and I have zero regrets (except the cost, I regret that a little bit.)

I’ve tried on probably about 30-40 dresses through 4-5 different salons and didn’t have that fluttery “this is it” feeling. No tears (by me, my MOH was a different story) but when I finally found the one, I chose it based on how pretty I felt, not that elusive bridal feeling you see on TV. Some brides get it. Some don’t. I took pics and compared myself that way to see which ones I liked best. I never thought I’d find the one but I did!

I did not!
I tried on every dress in my town basically and I never had that moment, I love my dress but the day is not about the dress to me

i did not…
i went to 7 stores 12 times.. i think.. lolss 50+ dresses?.. i seriously cant keep track anymore… always thought i liked a dress.. went home and questioned everything and then keep liking others in future appointments… the moment i was introduced to my dress was more of a “oh interesting, this is nice and different.. but not sure i like the skirt”… went home and kept looking at the pictures and went back to try it on a second and a third time before making my purchase..
reason for purchasing:
– i dont want to change a thing about the dress.. all the other dresses i wanted to change something whether it was raising the skirt, making it sweetheart, cut the train, etc…
i am happy to say i love my dress and have no regrets 🙂
And as to the skirt.. when i tried the dress a second timeeeee, i loved it.. eventhough i questioned when first tried it on… crazy huh? lols..

@MissCountryGirl727: I did. I danced and skipped in mine and couldn’t stop my beaming smile

Mine wasn’t so much “this is it” as “this was the best out of the 6-7 dresses I’ve tried on”. I loved my dress, but I’m still not sure if the one I picked was the best one I could’ve had.

Nope. I like my dress a lot but honestly I probably could have picked another dress and be fine with the decision.

I didn’t get that feeling!

I didn’t. I must have tried over 30 dresses but didn’t get emotional over any of them.

Maybe the emotion is stronger the more you stress over it ? I mean there are the moments when yost have time to look and try them on , you are still having fun while doing it but your subconscious is worried and you get terrible dress nightmares and loose sleep like I did. I guess maybe the emotion is combined with relief and therefore it becomes what it is?

I didn’t. I wasn’t even going to buy a dress (my grandma and I were going to rework her dress), but I wanted the shopping experience, so I went to the one local shop we had here. I tried on like seven dresses, and loved one of them because it looked and felt great. I didn’t cry or get super excited, but that could have been the Xanax talking. I do love my dress and wish that I had it here to dance around in when FI isn’t home, does that count?
