No tears here, from either my Mom or myself.  I knew it was the dress though, and I still have no doubts about it.  Didn’t cry for the engagement either.  I’m just not the teary, hallmark-y kind of person!

Nope. There was like maybe 2 seconds where my eyes watered up, but I did not cry… My mom didn’t either

I’d didn’t shed 1 tear and neither did my mom.  Instead I came out in the dress I chose and was smiling from ear to ear.  The people I brought with me saw my face and had the exact same reaction.  I think you just know when you’ve found THE dress.  Everyone is different so you can’t expect the water works for every bride.  As long you love the dress you chose that’s all that matter.  What I think got me the most was when one of my bridesmaids (who did tear up when she saw me in the dress, but she’s also a bit dramatic lol) said to me “Phil is going to love you in that dress!”

My “The dress” moment went something like this.

My expression was pretty much this —

😐  “I’ll buy this one.”

I didn’t cry when I got my dress, and I am a major crier. When we got engaged I bawled my eyes out I was so happy and cry over pretty much anything.

It’s awesome that it’s so pretty and everything but it’s just a dress to me.

Nope. I actually hadn’t quite planned on buying “the dress” that day because it was a year before the wedding, so I had to go eat lunch and think about it before. And I still didn’t cry. 

But I’m not a big “real life moment” crier.

I didn’t cry, and I didn’t have the immediate feeling of “the one.” I tried on 7 dresses and went back and forth between the first two. I’m so indecisive, I knew that if I didn’t pick one I would just try on more and more and it would get worse. After trying the first two on back to back a few times in a row, I finally picked the first one, and I’m happy with my choice.

I feel the same about relationships. I don’t believe in “the one,” just two people who are compatible and happened to find each other at the right time. There are other dresses (and people) out there that would fit me, but I found one I liked so now I’m done looking!

I didn’t cry and I didn’t know it was “the one.”  I went back and tried on my top two dresses and picked between those.  Nobody cried, it was more of a practical than emotional decision.  I had a budget and a general style I liked and so I found the dress that fit that.  I loved my dress but I guess I just wasn’t one of those girls that really felt a strong attachment to a dress or to the idea of a wedding dress.

Nope. Walked in, fell in love with the first dress I tried on,  bought it & that was that.

Did not cry. I was pretty ambivalent about my dress. I purchased it mostly because it was pretty cheap and looked fine on me. I’m not the type to spend $$$$$$ on a dress I’d only wear once, so I had lowered expectations. I don’t have much of an emotional connection to my dress now. If my daughter wants to wear my wedding dress I will be pretty shocked. But that’s kinda how my mom felt when I wanted to wear the veil that she wore – mom wa like, “this old thing? But it just something simple your grandmother made.” Exactly. I loved that veil.

@CestTresJolie14:  I wanted to cry at the shop, but not becuase I found my dress. I swear I am allergic to bridal salons. I get hot and flustered whenever I am in one. It may just be sticker shock. My first and only dress appt was a dismal dismal DISMAL failure and I refused to go through it again so I went the online route. When I got my dress in the mail I loved it but I didn’t cry.

 I didnt cry and my friends thought I was weird. I  didnt cry when DH proposed, and I didnt cry about the dress. More than anything I just wanted to get the dress part over with. I hate shopping. 


I only sniffled during the ceremony. Only cause he kept looking at me and mouthing “your my wife, your my wife.”

I didn’t cry. I saw myself, said hey… I think this is the one! It was not an emotional experience for me.

@CestTresJolie14:  Didn’t cry.  I guess some girls do but you have to remember that SYTTD is a TV show and they get directed on how to behave to an extent.  Plus, alot of people who might enjoy being on a TV show would also enjoy putting on a show for the camera. 

I did get a “feeling” when I put the dress on and saw what it could be.  But I didn’t get all emotional.
