Saw a thread of someone who had a cry moment, and of course we all see them on SYTTD. I didn’t have that whole emotional moment, and I do really love my dress – I think it looks amazing on me. Was anyone else a non crier? Does my lack of crying indicate that my dress isn’t the one? I’m curious if that moment gets so much hype that people THINK we should all be crying when it happens. Also, I shopped alone – maybe that had something to do with it?

I didn’t cry. Though I probably rushed my decision and maybe didn’t choose THE dress but it was still THE dress because I wore it on my wedding day.

I didn’t cry. I’m just not really a crier. If I had crid my family probably would have been freaked out wondering what was wrong with me.

I didn’t cry. I really don’t “get” the whole idea of crying when someone finds their wedding dress.
I just loved my dress and wanted to dance around in it when I found it.

I didn’t cry when I found my dress. I just knew it was the one though. I just had that “feeling.” I did ALMOST cry when I tried on a different dress, though, haha. It was a beautiful dress, too, and it was the first dress that I really liked. It was also the first time my mom and matron of honor were both with me to try on dresses, and when the lady put the veil on, I just sort of had an emotional moment. I thought that dress might be the one until I found THE one 🙂

Nope, I didn’t cry either. And don’t worry, it doesn’t mean that your dress isn’t “the one” if you didn’t cry. But I will admit, after so many episodes of SYTTD I thought I’d be shedding some tears like most of the brides they show.

I didn’t cry at all, and I absolutely LOVE my dress. I actually felt too giddy and excited to cry. I didn’t want to take it off–I wore in the salon for about an hour.

I definitely didn’t cry. I just said “Hey, it looks really good and it’s a good price, so why not?” The saleslady was all “Aren’t you SOOO excited that you’ve found THE dress you will wear on the best day of your life?!!!” I just looked at her and said “Look lady, it’s nice and I’ll buy it, but I’m not gonna cry.”

I didn’t cry either. I put on the dress and told the saleswoman “this is it. I love this one.” Even she seemed surprised that I wasn’t crying. She looked closer to tears than me!

I haven’t shopped yet but I know I won’t cry when I put on my dress. I just don’t cry about things like that.

There is too much hype being made about the wedding dress. Did you cry when you picked the cake? The venue? The wedding rings? The dress is just another wedding detail. And buying it is like going clothes shopping. It made me smile. 🙂

I didn’t cry when I found ‘the’ dress. I did get a distinct “this is it, quit looking!” feeling, but no waterworks.
Although, I did cry when I tried on the first dress. I think that was the moment it hit me that I was really getting married. I had dreamed so long about getting to try wedding dresses on, and finally it was happening. Haha…silliness, but so fun. 🙂

I didn’t cry, but I totally thought I would because I AM a crier! I just knew it was the one. My eyes got a little watery because my mom and dad’s eyes did, but I wouldn’t call it waterworks. I knew it was the dress and stopped looking. I think SYTTD makes too big of a deal out of the “cry moment”. They don’t ask the girl if it’s “her dress” until she has shed a tear. Then the rest of us “normal folk” think we have to cry to know our dress is THE dress.

@BambeeBliss: Hahhaha I think it’s awesome that you said that to her!! It’s almost like they try to MAKE you cry by saying every emotional and sentimental thing they can think of!

I cried when I tried the first wedding dress on, which made me think it was the one, but it wasn’t. When I did find the one, I danced around the shop in it and had a big gleaming smile.
