- Wedding: June 2013 - Piney River Ranch
I am the type of person who doesn’t get physically “excited” over most things. I’m not sure why.
It makes me jealous and second-guess my decisions sometimes (especially regarding my wedding dress) when I see girls having that “moment” where they cry, jump up and down, etc. when they find their dress. I didn’t have that moment or really do much more than smile and say, “I want to order this dress.”
How many of you out there never got that feeling and have that “moment” over your dress? Did you love your dress any less?
How many of you DID have that moment?

I was somewhere in between. I was excited but I didn’t get emotional over the dress. I went shopping after work and was tired and hungry. I still love my dress but I think I need to see the overall look to get excited. i.e. pretty hair/makeup and shoes.

Yeah I knew it was it but wasn’t overly excited and not emotional at all. I love it but it definetly makes me question my dress since I didn’t have that moment.
I did just go for my final moment and did have a moment of “this is it” when I put it on. Still no tears but it felt good.

I didn’t cry and jump and all that. 1stly, I’m not an emotional person. 2ndly, I wanted it to be quiet and non-emotional. This may be due to the fact my mom had passed 6 years earlier.

I’m normally very emotional over everything, but I didn’t have that “moment” dress shopping/when I found my dress. I did take a Xanax to calm my overactive anxiety before we left, so that might have had something to do with it?

I’m not a very emotional person. I don’t really ever cry for anything. So I didn’t expect to have a whole show with the jumping and screaming, etc etc. So when I found the right dress, I knew it was the right one because there was a huge smile plastered on my face that didn’t go away, and I just felt so beautiful in it. I tried on others that we had picked out, and I tried that one on again last just one last time to check, and yup, still loved it! Didn’t want to take it off. So for me, that was the sign.

- Wedding: January 2011 - Midland, TX
This was my second wedding so I feel like I missed out on that “omg, I look like a bride” moment. . But I kind of had one the first time around when my mom started to tear up.

I’m usually a really emotional person but I didn’t cry or get an overwhelming “this is the one!” feeling or anything like that. Don’t get me wrong, I was definitely excited and I knew it was a beautiful dress and it looked great on me, but it was very…logical…for lack of a better word lol. Maybe it was because I was spending a lot of money so my rational side was kicking in?

@copewedding: I didn’t either. I don’t show much outward emotion. I’m pretty introverted. I think personality plays a role in how we express ourselves. I really like the dress I ended up ordering and said, “yes, I’d like to go with this one, when should I order it?” But no tears or dancing, just a sense of relief it was taken care of.

My decision was made very quickly and I love my gown, and I definitely think I made the right/perfect choice and am very confident with my choice, but I don’t know what some girls talk about so called “the feeling”… Some of us just aren’t wired that way…at least that’s what I think…
I guess I am generally very realistic in that I have a set budget and was specifically looking for gowns within my budget. Even if I LOOOOVED some gown I tried on and wished I was able to easily afford it, I never thought “wow I am feeling THAT bride moment this must be the one!” and went ahead to buy something out of my price rage… you know what I mean…

When I chose my dress, I still wasn’t sure. I was going back and forth between two dresses. In the end, I figured they were both really pretty and whichever one I chose would look great, so I couldn’t lose. So I chose the one others in the store thought was prettiest. I don’t regret it.

Every dress I tried on it was pretty much just like “eh, it’s a dress”. Some of them were prettier than others, some fit me better than others. I found one that I was comfortable in & that made my mom cry. But despite the best efforts of the girls at DB, I didn’t get emotional. : p It’s just clothing.

I didn’t even get to try on the sample of my dress in store and as it was ordered with a bunch of different custom changes (including changing the entire silhouette) there wouldn’t have even been much point for me. And the first time I put the dress on I cried unhappy tears. So let’s just say no, no I did not get “that feeling.” 🙁
