No, not even close to crying! I kept gushing about how perfect it was and that it was a ‘meant to be’ moment though.

 

Later on my Mum said she had tears in her eyes when she saw me trying on wedding dresses. But no, no tears from me.

I didn’t cry. It was the most beautiful dress I tried on, a true princess dress and I did not shed one tear at any fitting. I only cried the day of.

I didn’t cry when I picked out my dress.  My mom, Maid/Matron of Honor, and I only went to one store, where I tried on five dresses.  I said ‘yes’ to the second dress I tried on.  After the whole shebang, I was more emotional about not crying than I was about actually choosing the dress.

I did not cry either.  Actually, the first thing I thought when I put on the dress was….it actually fits!!  this is one in a lifetime!  I decided to get it because it was 1/2 off, it was off the rack, my mom was buying it and I did not want her to spend too much money,  the dress fit the standards I wanted and it fit very well (and we would spend less on alterations). 

 

However, I had fallen in love with the first dress I had tried on (I did cry when I wore that one).  I still think about that dress and sometimes picture my pictures with me wearing the first dress.  -Silly, I know….

I didn’t cry when I found my dress, either. I kind of expected my mom to get a little emotional, but she didn’t either. I felt a little bad that I didn’t have a “moment,” but I love my dress, I think it’ll be great, and I’m looking forward to wearing it soon!

@maypearl:  I definitely laughed after the proposal! I have a friend at work who jokes that she’s coming to the ceremony just to see if I laugh too hard during ceremony to actually say my vows. We’ll see 😛

@CestTresJolie14: 

I was excited — probably too excited to cry! It was hard for me to tear up over a dress, let alone a wedding dress. I was on high alert in case of pushy retail tactics. It had to fit within my budget after alterations. On top of that, it’s very difficult for me to visualize when all the sample dresses were made too long for my height. So, I asked a lot of questions you normally won’t see asked on Say Yes to the Dress. Smile Luckily, my consultant was very patient and has basic knowledge about how involved the alterations were. (At the same time, I was assessing the pros and cons of buying it in store versus getting one custom-made by a seamstress. Being petite sucks.)

I kinda knew it was the Dress the moment I saw it and twirled in it! However, I wanted to make sure I am emotionally okay to go with a dress with no train by trying on other full-length dresses. I walked in full-length dresses and conclusively thought, “Oh dear, I almost tripped just now. Imagine that on the day of! *Giggles*”

Receiving compliments from strangers on two different consults was also very re-assuring.

I didn’t cry. Most likely because to DATE I have not tried on the dress, had it fit beautifully and been able to clearly imagine what the heck I will actually look like on my wedding day. Mine was custom made, inspired by an Enzoani one I tried on and even that one was too big and in all pics of me wearing it I have one arm because I was struggling to hold the dress up. My final (and, well, only) fitting is not until 2 days before the wedding. I’ll probably cry the morning of when I get dressed.
