Hey Bees! i was wondering if any of you didn’t get that magical feeling when you found your dress? i have found three dresses that i really like and i would be happy to walk down the aisle in any of them but i didnt get THAT feeling….. does this mean that none of them are THE dress? (can someone assign this to the dress section,i am on my phone and it wont let me select the section where it goes…lol)

I didn’t get the feeling in my dress. I liked it, but didn’t love it…but I bought it anyways, then had major dress regrets. But since going to my fittings and putting the dress on w/ my veil, jewelry, etc…I LOVE my dress and have had the ‘moment’…we all hope for, now I am excited to wear it in less than 2 weeks

I haven’t purchased my dress yet, but when I found the “one” I wasn’t speechless and I didn’t cry. I exclaimed “OHHHHHHHHHH *THIS* is a FUN DRESS!!!!!!” Then I said I shouted “I LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” and then proceeded to strut around the store and demand that groom “fluff out” the train (he had no idea what I was referring to.
So, I didn’t necessarily have the same reaction that you see a lot of brides on reality television shows.

I don’t know if I had that epic moment that you from people on TV, but I just felt so beautiful in the dress and didn’t want to take it off. Make sure you feel absolutely amazingly beautiful in your gown.

Maybe I’m just weird, but I didn’t have a big moment or anything. It was my mother’s favorite dress out of the ones I had narrowed it down to, and I went with her choice. I know the dress looks great on me, and I’m sure it’ll be perfect for our wedding in our venue on our day.
It’s honestly quite strange because I’m generally over-emotional about everything. And I’m certainly a giant sap. But the dress just wasn’t my trigger I guess. Sometimes I feel like I must be broken because I keep reading about everyone’s moments with “the one”. But I guess it’s okay… I know I picked a great dress.

I just had a “this dress rocks, I want this!” thought. No overwhelming emotions or crying.

Everyone expects you to cry when you find “the one” but I didn’t. I never thought that I would cry though.
I knew I had found the one when I didn’t want to take it off and kept touching the dress and looking at myself. And when I would go home, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

I bought a dress that I really liked, I put it on and then just couldn’t help but smirk and smile. I tried on a ton before and after it, and that one again a few more times and it was my favorite, but I didnt have *a moment*. Then I had some doubts after buying it, but hopefully once I get it fitted I’ll like it more again.

I didn’t get that gooey magical feeling either! Sounds like you will probably be happy with whatever dress you end up choosing. Some brides find lots of dresses they love, and some can’t find any!
What helped me pick my gown is the fit and the design. Once i found a dress that had the best of those two criteria, thats when i knew I found my dress. I used the same principles when I shopped for a homecoming/prom/formal dresses.

Nope, no singing chorus of angels here either, and I tried on about a hundred dresses. I ultimately picked out several common elements that I really liked and had a dress made that included all of them – it was way cheaper than buying a dress at a salon! Didn’t have a “moment” when I put that dress on either, but I didn’t assume I would. I like the dress well enough, and I’m happy to wear it when I marry the man I love.

Honestly, before I started watching wedding shows, I had never seen or heard of any of my friends/family crying when they found their dress. When they got engaged, or walked down the aisle, yes, but not just dress shopping.
I think those wedding shows sometimes give women unrealistic expectations of what real life is like. (Yes, I know those are “real brides”, but I also think being in front of the camera hypes things up a notch.)
