I have tried on tons of dresses. A few of them I have liked. But NONE of them were like “LORD! I NEED THIS DRESS NOW!!!” And I’m worried I won’t ever find “the one” or have that “aha!” moment!

I tried on lots and lots and lots of wedding dresses. And I really didn’t like any of them. They were beautiful dresses, but just not ‘me’ I felt like a berk in a big white dress.

So, eventually I found another dress. It’s not a wedding dress, it’s not white, it doesn’t have a big skirt and it’s not strapless. But I loved it. It was beautiful, flattering and I felt like a goddess when I wore it. Even my notoriously hard to please mother thought it was incredible. Unfortunately I won’t be able to wear it – the reasons why are a bit complicated, but essentially a close friend has bought the same dress for her wedding.

So I am really, really hoping I will find another dress as amazing.

The moral of the story? If you have tried on lots of wedding dresses and not felt like you could find the ‘one’? Try non-wedding dresses. Maybe you aren’t a wedding dress person. Maybe white and cream don’t suit you. Maybe you need a short pink dress not a long white one. Maybe plunging green silk makes you feel amazing? Try, anyway. Think outside the ‘wedding’ box.

I had only been to ONE briadal store and I LOVED the dress they helped me pick out. It was on sale for the day and I begged my bf (we weren’t engaged yet!) to help me buy it. We just didn’t have the money…so we let it go. Days later, I was thinking of the dress. I realized then that it was just too much. It had a lot of beadwork and a LONG train, not to mention it was heavy as could be.

After heading to another bridal shop in a different town a few weeks after that, I tried on a few and still felt they were all too heavy for a summer wedding. A “light weight” dress seemed to not exsist! I tried on about 5 at this bridal store and finally hit the jackpot! I had found a dress that was more simple in style and not heavy. (It had short sleeves too! that is something you don’t find on every dress! I didn’t want to feel too exposed). When we went to check out, we found out that it was over half off!!! It was orginally priced at over 500 and I got it for 280 or so.

I just knew in my heart that I’d found my dress. I didn’t scream or yell that I’d found it, I just felt it.

I never had an OMG moment while trying on dresses.  My dress was everything I was looking for and made my waist look tiny.  It was lace, it wasn’t floofy, I could walk without tripping over layers of tulle inside.  It was just what I wanted.  It was pretty, in budget, looked great on, so we bought it.  No tears, no screaming.  I think I confused the poor consultant. 🙂  I feel better knowing others didn’t feel lightening strike.

I have a really unromantic dress experience.  My dress was the first dress I wanted to and did try on.  I didn’t like my dress when I first tried it on, so I tried on a bunch of others.  I hated the others, so the first dress grew on me.  I tried it on again, and still felt “eh.”  I tried on more other dresses but couldn’t find anything that was perfect.  The first dress grew on me more.  I found it at a sample sale for 1/4 the price, and it grew on me 10x.  And now it’s mine.
