I went dress shopping for the first time with my other engaged bridemaid and our other friend and I could not believe it but the first dress I tried on might be “the one”! I am a little upset about this for a few reasons: 1) I didn’t really get a “feeling” about it or cry or anything like that, but I have to admit it does look stunning 2) I have had this Anne Barge dress in my head for 6 months that I can’t find anywhere! I feel like I can’t go forward until I find and try on the Anne Barge and 3) the first dress i tried on is a Sottero Midgely dress that is brand new and everywhere right now, am I a snob to not want a dress that everyone is going to recognize?!??!
Additionally, I feel like my maids are more in love with it than I am and every dress I tried on after, they just shook their heads no, no, no.
What to do…

Even if you think it could be the one, I would definitely try on more, just to be sure. Especially if you aren’t 100% in love with it, which it sounds like you aren’t. I would try more on and you might surprise yourself! Don’t limit yourself – this is your one chance to try on anything and everything!

I dont think so, You know what you like and what you dont. Remember that every dress the bride makes it unique. If you have piccies please post! At least you kept on trying and didnt buy on the spot! Keep the dress you tried on as a contender!

The first dress I tried on was the one I chose, too 🙂
I didn’t cry or anything like that…. I just really, really liked how it looked and how I felt in it. None of the other dresses I tried on looked as good as that one.
I highly doubt anyone will recognize that dress! So many things seem “overdone” to us, because we look at wedding stuff allllll the time. I know I do! Most of the people coming to our wedding have never seen/heard of candy buffets or bathroom baskets. When I say the brand of my dress (Maggie Sottero), people are clueless as to who that is.
Ultimately, it comes down to you loving your dress! If it’s what you want, go for it. If you’re just not sure yet, keep looking. I had to go back and try my dress on a second time before I was sure it was the one. Maybe it would help if you go back without anyone and just try it on by yourself. Good luck!

I had a similar problem. I went dress shopping with my Future Sister-In-Law and Future Mother-In-Law as a good bonding time and they fell in love with a certain dress I tried ok. I thought it was just okay, but they loved it and it was their style, so everything else I put on after it, no matter how much I liked it, they said no, no, no, no, no to. It was hard!! I think you should find a way to find that one dress you really want to try on, and then make a decision. And hard as it is, even if everyone else thinks you look stunning in one dress and they nix everything else, but you only merely like it – keep looking! Good luck 🙂

The same thing happened to me. Try on that dress of your dreams!! I drove three hours away to try on mine and it was indeed the one! I ordered her yesterday.

I bought my dress on my first shopping trip! I picked six dresses, and the sixth one was bought on the spot!

Mine is from the first trip and the first place I went to try on gowns. I didn’t cry either, but I must say it does look, in my opinion, awesome on me. I purchased it in October of last year and I am still happy with it.
My suggestion to you is to go back and try it on by yourself. You won’t have any distractions and can get a better idea of whether or not it is “the one”. If it is, then you should get it, but also if I was you, I would call around to find the other dress and try it on before I made the final purchase. You may find that the one in your head is “the one” or that it definately isn’t the one. It will put your mind at ease and you won’t always be wondering and second guessing yourself.
Another tip: When you finally do make your dress purchase, stop looking for other dresses. There will always be another one out there that you think you want. I second guessed myself for quite awhile after I got my dress. After I tried it on a couple of times though and stopped looking at others’ dresses like I was looking at them for myself, that was when I knew 100% that I do have “the one”.
