Maybe it’s not your ‘dream dress’ after all? I started dress shopping and looking at dresses I’d been thinking of, then I tried on a strapless ballgown and LOVED it. I didn’t cry or freak out, though, I was just reluctant to take it off.
Or maybe it is your ‘dream dress’ and you’re upset that you’re not reacting the way you think you should. That’s okay. Everyone has that experience in some form or another, and it doesn’t mean you don’t like it or don’t care, it just means you’re a bit more collected than everyone else. I think the dresses are more for everyone else’s benefit than the bride’s anyway xD
@TogetherThroughLife: I was fishing through the Galina posts on here, because I am at a loss with what shoes to wear with my gown… THAT IS ALMOST EXACTLY LIKE YOURS! I absolutely love your dress! When we first got engaged, I pinned that exact dress. Then when I was at DB trying them on, that one didn’t look right on me (I have really bad scoliosis & you could tell my hips are very crooked in it). So I tried a dress with the same exact cotton lace, but mine has a little side cutout that has tulle & cotton flowers in it take distract from my hips!). I am still over the moon with my gown & I hope you have come to love yours, too! That’s all! XXXOOO
The dress is beautiful and suits you! I love the lace!! Enjoy!
I think the dress is beautiful! you can add acccessories to it to make it your own! not everyone has an emotional moment when finding THE dress.
Love the dress! I didn’t cry or swoon either. My consultant told me the only brides that get super emotional are the ones who are super emotional on a regular basis anyway. I still love my dress so much though! I’m such an indesicive person, so it was hard for me to get emotional and make sure I got the right one, but I love my dress!
LOOK at you!! Your figure, your arms, that gorgeous lace – you look STUNNING!!! Wow!! Seriously I don’t know you, but cannot imagine you in a different dress. Beautiful!
Agreed with everyone else – don’t play into the media’s hype, re: that special moment. And rest assured that you look ravishing in this number, and the groom is gonna think so too!
Can I offer some advice? I *almost* bought this dress but went with T9612 in the end. However, I really loved this dress! It looks great on you! I was going to jazz it up with a beaded belt and also have the top altered to a sweet heart neckline. I have some pictures I can share of the seamstress pinning it this way. I can post them if you’re interested. It’s a great dress!
I liked my dress, but I didn’t cry/get emotional when I tried it on. I did get a bit excited because I probably tried on over 30 dresses before I found one where I said to myself “Dang, that looks good!” and even then I didn’t buy it right away (It was $800 and I’m way too cheap/poor to spend that). I was engaged for almost 2 years, so nearly a year after I tried it on, I found the same dress on ebay and bought it, but it was more exciting to get it in the mail knowing I’d paid a fraction of the cost.
My sister says that I “settled” because of the price. Honestly, it worked for me and it was my favorite dress that I tried on. I didn’t even bother trying on dresses over $1000.
Your dress is beautiful! Girl, I found mine on the David’s Bridal website, went to the appointment, tried on three dresses and walked out with the one I had originally wanted. No crying, no jumping up and down, I didn’t want to ring that dang bell they make you ring at David’s Bridal.. I just wanted to get my dress and leave. I think the crying and super excitement is for some girls but not all girls. My mom cried and that was good enough for me lol.
