So I did not get all teary eyed. No actual tears. My mother did not tear up. I did not get emotional. But…I did have a big old smile on my face.
I really liked my dress.
It is Casablanca 1936.
I was kinda bummed that I did not have that perfect moment with all the emotion so I truly know that it was the dress. I was even more bummed that my mom did not have that moment either.
But, I really really like the dress 🙂

You’ll have that perfect moment on your wedding day when you’re all dolled up!

@Day_In_The_Life: I had the same reaction as you- I knew it was the dress, but I didn’t cry or get all emotional. Don’t worry about it and enjoy your dress!
I think shows like say yes to the dress really overhype that moment. As long as your happy with the dress, that’s all the matters

I saw all smiles, too! I did not tear up, I was just so happy in it.

Same here, no tears from my mom Either. My aunt was a different story!

No tears from me or anyone else, but we knew it was my dress!

I didn’t tear up either. FI’s aunt sort of did, but looking at the fact that I’m putting it on with my accessories on Friday when she brings up my dress from Corvallis so I can see it all together, I’m going to be a mess!
Where did you end up going?

Mom, FMIL and I got teary eyed about wedding dresses in general, but not any one in particular. When I found my dress I’d describe it more as a slow obsession.

I’m not a cryer either. That isn’t a bad thing! You never have to worry about ruining your makeup 😉

I didn’t have a “moment” either. I thought something was wrong with me!
Ultimately, the decision was made once I realized that I had been comparing every single dress I had on to the one I ended up choosing!

I just went shopping with FMIL and one bridesmaid, but I didn’t have a moment, either. I love my dress, but I’m not sure I would have, even if I’d not taken the Xanax beforehand. I was actually more worried about the money, since it would have been really beneficial to purchase it right then, but I didn’t have the money, and had just gone for fun. I was actually going to wear my grandma’s beautiful lace dress.

I just smiled too and my heart was beating super fast! 🙂

Here was my moment:
After trying on dress after dress at 3 boutiques away from home and giving up for a month, I went with just my mom to a local store. I was convinced I wasn’t going to find anything, and she just said calmly that I would. I tryed on tons of dresses there too, and finally found one I didn’t hate.
I looked at it and thought, this is kinda nice. I even got off the stupid pedestal and walked in it. It was different but nice… and best of all it was me. I felt like me. Not like a princess, because that’s not me. Not like a model or a celebrity or anything. Just me, the girl my FI asked to marry. Me, only a little elegant and bridal. It was right, and I loved it, but it was a decision I made analytically more than anything. I was smiling, and I was loving myself in it, but I didn’t cry and neither did my mom. we just said, yup, this it!

@ninjachc: Ha, mine was pretty logical/analytical as well. I tried on some other silhouettes that weren’t as flattering and were just SO heavy/hot, and/or that I couldn’t sit down/move comfortably in. I was like, “This one is pretty, flattering, and comfortable. Sold.” I also got lots of perks for purchasing the dress there at my first appointment (discounts on accessories, bridesmaids dresses, and tuxes).

@PacificMrs: I ended up going to Anna’s Bridal in Lake Oswego, but I had originally tried on the dress at Bridal Exlcusives.
