I didn’t have cry when I tried on or bought my dress. This is my second wedding and so different for me this time around. So maybe that’s it? I didn’t even care about a specific dress and don’t have an vision in my head of what I wanted. my taste/style varies a lot. I went with most comfortable to me and what looked I think is best on my figure that doesn’t make my boobs stand out. The other dresses did make them stand out which I don’t like. I just better not gain any weight from now until the wedding because I won’t be able to take the dress out instead of taking it in LOL. Am I one of the few that feel this way?
ETA: I am getting a different sash

I kept waiting for the tears, but I tried on sooooo many dresses and I didnt’t cry when I found the one. I did get chills though 😉

This is my first wedding and first wedding dress.
Absolutely no tears, here. I had a 😐 face when I wore it. I loved it, and it looked great on me, but I didn’t have fireworks, I didn’t break down in tears.
I just went, “This is the one.” and bought it. The bridal shop assistant was trying to get me to flip out. “Don’t you feel bridal!?”
No, but I probably will on my wedding day, so, whatevs.

I figured I wouldn’t cry, and I didn’t. First wedding, first time even thinking about trying on dresses, and all that. I kept being told when I found “the” dress I would know. I don’t feel like I did. I tried on a lot of them that I didn’t like. Tried on one that I did, shrugged, turned to my mom and said “yeah, I think this will do,” tried on a few more, and went back to the one I ended up wearing.
Don’t get me wrong, my dress was lovely. I liked it and out of the available dresses I tried on, it was the most “me” I could find. I am very pleased that I ended up wearing it and was comfortable wearing it. I just never got chills or misty eyed.
I’m not really a clothes person though. I did cry over the shoes… but it’s probably because I didn’t break them in enough. 😀

I didn’t cry over my dress. I teared up when my dad did.

I didnt cry. I asked the woman helping me if most do and she says generally the do not cry. She said “Say Less to the Dress” has ruined their jobs because people always expet these huge emotions and tears, when in reality it isnt often like that.

I got some chills from the dress, but I didn’t cry. When we brought my dad to the salon for him to see it, I DID cry when he said ok…what do I have to do to make it happen? I was overwhelmed by his love and generosity in giving me my dream dress…and that definitely made me cry! But the dress itself…while amazing…no.

Nope, no tears here. I was very pleased with the dress and tried on a couple of more to be sure, but ended up going back to it and getting it.

I got goosebumps, but my Mom got all teary eyed. I never really expected myself to cry when I found my dress, however I’m pretty sure I’ll be a teary eyed mess on my wedding day if my Dad cries.

I didn’t. My mom did, but I didn’t cry. It was my first (and only!) wedding dress. The only thing I knew going in was I wanted straps of some kind and I did NOT want a trumpet or a fit and flare. I hated the dress when the consultant first brought it in, but tried it on and loved it. I really regret not trying on more (it was fun!) and I’ve definitely struggled with dress regret, but at the same time, I liked my dress. I can’t say I still love it like I did then, but it was a really pretty dress and I was comfortable in it and I loved how the whole bridal look came together that day.

Nope, no tears here. I bought the third dress I tried on only two weeks after I got engaged. I was never loopy over the idea of a wedding dress but knew I wanted to look pretty in my photos.
I’m normally a crier, but the only time I ever teared up while wedding planning is when my Future Mother-In-Law told me “I’m so glad you’re going to be my daughter!”

For me the dress process was actually NOT something I enjoyed as I needed a covered back dress and they pretty much didn’t exist when I was looking. I had my dress custom made and although it was my DREAM dress I didn’t have tears…just UBER excited when Igot to finally try it on. I knew it was the one cause I didn’t want to take it off :).
