@BonjourCiel:  I had a similar experience in that I found my dress on my first trip to try on wedding dresses. I think it was the 3rd or 4th one I tried on. I didn’t have the emotional, crying, etc, but I knew it was perfect for what I wanted. I had a second appointment the same afternoon at a different place, but nothing measured up to the one I loved at the first place. 

Sometimes you just get lucky and find the right one right off the bat!

@BonjourCiel:  I’d say, if you’re that certain, buy it… Make sure you then quit looking online at dresses.

@BonjourCiel:  indulge your mother, if it doesn’t bother you too much! she just wants to see you in more pretty dresses. 😛

but if you’re sure, you’re sure, and it’s completely fine not to try on any more.

@BonjourCiel:  by the way, I thought I had “the one” on one of my first appointments too. like I was sure, I loved it, my friends were happy for me. but my mother wasn’t sure, didn’t really like it, and wanted me to try on more.

so, after some time had passed, I decided to take my mom to try on more dresses. and then she pulled one that I would’ve never even thought about trying on… but wow! it made me forget about the old dress, it was so much more than I imagined. and now looking back at photos of the old dress, I’m really glad I decided to continue shopping.

BUT, if I hadn’t continued shopping, I still would’ve been very happy in my old dress. so there’s that. but more shopping never hurts? (unless you are very busy and don’t enjoy trying on dresses in your spare time)

I only needed to try on like 6-7 before I found the one. I bought it almost a year ago and I still have no regrets

Does your mother have any objections to the dress, aside from it being the first dress you tried on? Because if that’s the case, I would maybe go on one more shopping trip to the same salon with her, but just think of it as a fun “dress up” time. You can try on a few other dresses and then try on “the one” last and then buy it. 

Like you, I went in pretty much knowing exactly what I wanted. I did my homework, researched the designers/dresses available in my area, and had four or five dresses I knew I wanted to try on the day of my appointment. And the dress I had been the most excited about on-line was “the one” in real life. I cried, my mom cried, we all had the moment. Maybe your mom just needs a little time to step back and see how much you really love this dress.

I actually think that the majority of dresses will work for a majority of wedding venues — as long as it’s not a huge ballgown for a backyard bbq or a cotton, beachy dress for a country club kind of affair. Anything between those two extremes can be tailored with accessories, flowers, your veil, etc. Congrats!!

I bought the second dress I tried on after my “dream” dress didn’t quite work out. That was 3 months ago, I’ve seen a bunch of other dresses on here and I don’t regret my decision.  

 

Go for it.
