It was the one I kept thinking about.  I went to many too many to name bridal salons. ( Even Kleinfleds) I went to several cities in Texas.  This one had roses ( my wedding is outside) and I just kept thinking about it.  Other people liked other ones I tired on.  My mom love d the monique lace gowns.  But I just kept thinking about it. A month later I went back and bought it.  I really took my time.  I had taken pictures of me in a bunch of dresses and I just kept looking them over.  Take your time.  This is the time to shop!

I guess the best thing I can say to you is, imagine the day, imagine hearing the music begin to play, imagine starting to walk down the aisle, looking at your groom, with your bridal attendants up there, now look down at your dress, one of the two should be on you. That’s how I decided between the two I had picked.

For me, I dress shopped right away, because I happened to be in my hometown and wouldn’t have the chance to shop with my mom and childhood best friends again.  I ended up being totally torn between two dresses.  Once we made a few more plans, it just clicked that one of the dresses absolutely fit my vision. 

But if you think it will help, go to one more store 🙂

I knew my dress was the one when I didn’t want to take it off, and I kept comparing other dresses to it. I didn’t cry or anything, I just felt like the prettiest girl in the world. On my first day shopping though, i was in love with everything and had the attitude of “I’ll be happy with whatever I pick theyre all beautiful”. That attitude changed quickly though! Have fun with the experience, go to a bunch of stores!

I would keep looking if I were you. I thought I had found my dress, but my mom made me wait overnight and we went ahead and scheduled another appointment. I ended up finding one that I love even more at that store. If you’ve got time, I would wait to commit to one.

i’d keep looking if i were you, we’re both getting married around the same time and i just found mine last week. i went to 4 different shops (like one a month?) and took my time. narrowed it down to the silhouette and details i wanted and then focused on that. i tried on plenty that would suffice, but when i found “the one”, i knew it immediately. one other word of advice – only compare 2 dresses at a time. so pick your fav out of those 2 that you tried and then compare that one to the others.

I felt the same as @arenyth.  I had tried on several dresses over a 2 month period. I had settled on one or two of them, but I could still see “flaws”.  When I finally found MY dress, I couldn’t take it off.  I would try on something else, and immediately put it back on after.  After the third time…I said, This IS IT!  I found my dress!

Mine was the second dress I tried on…I tried on MANY afterwards, because I was convinced there was no way I had found “the one” after just two dresses. Logic lost. 🙂 I went back and bought it.

I bought it because, in it, I felt beautiful. I felt like a bride. I kept wanting to put it back on “just to compare.”

I went to three dress shops, but only 2 days of shopping. I found some I loved at each of the shops, but all were very similar in style. I ended up finding one that I loved, but with the neckline from another dress, and the material/flowers of another one… so I still haven’t seen MY dress in all it’s beauty… Gosh I hope it’s the one!! Wink

 

Luckily all the shops let me take pictures so I could compare as I went through the dresses…I never had like an omg this is it moment though with any of the dresses…

honestly, i loved every single dress on me that i tried on. i oohed and ahhed over everything. i chose my dress because it was the one that my mom and dad had the strongest reaction too. it’s not as avant garde as i would like, but i think it suits me and it’s comfortable. i didn’t cry or anything or have that “moment” like everyone talks about.

It was my size and the price was fantastic.

I narrowed my style down pretty quickly. And then I hated most of the dresses they brought out in my style. Too much sparkle, random broach here and there. Until finally, they brought out one that I couldn’t complain about. It took about 3 hours for me to decide on my dress 🙂
