I was asked this week if I cried when I picked out my dress…. I didn’t…. And I cry at a lot of stuff. I know it’s not like you SHOULD cry when you see your dress, and I know it conjures up so many different emotions in different people. It doesn’t bother me that I didn’t cry (it actually makes me grin like a fool every time I even think about my dress) I was just wondering how common it was…. So… – what did you do?

I didn’t cry. I was super excited that it was the first dress I tried on, and that I didn’t have to try on so many I forgot which one I liked best. No tears here!

@Sparkidoodle: Nope. But I couldn’t sleep the night between when I decided I was ordering it and when my mother and Future Mother-In-Law gave their approval. When it came in the mail (I ordered used) I tried it on by myself and didn’t cry, still super excited though. And then I tried it on for real (as in I had someone take pictures and button the buttons) and I didn’t cry but refused to take it off for a solid hour.

I was…. really happy and excited when I said yes to the dress. Then for some reason, as we left the store, it just hit me. I AM GETTING MARRIED! I have finally found the man I want to spend forever with. And as we walked to the car, I shed a few tears then, in the parking lot.

My mom and sis didn’t cry, but I was welling up. Because my family is very stoic, I think I stayed dry-eyed. Had someone shed a tear I would have been crying like a baby!

I didn’t cry, but I got goosebumps when she put the veil on me. It was just me and my mom together, no real intentions of buying the dress that day, and it was the first dress I tried on!

@Mrs. Bear Cheese Pie: Way to go! You did amazingly to say yes to the first one!!
” I didn’t cry but refused to take it off for a solid hour” LMAO!! I love that!! I did seriously think — I wonder if I can just drive home in this today 🙂
I had that feeling when I was choosing vows recently… but like you it was more about oh my goodness we’re getting married than the actual matter in hand

Hell no. It’s a dress. I like my dress, it’s a lovely dress, but I’m getting married to a man I love and get to spend the rest of my life with him. That’s the point, not a white dress and a wedding. That’s the part I care about.

Im a crier…I flipping cry at Hallmark commercials for the love of god…but I didnt cry when I chose my dress and that actually kind go worried me. But I know I love it. So thats all that matters. I also went dress shopping after being in surgery all morning/day so I was also fairly tired and zombie like lol.

I did cry… I didn’t cry vocally… but the tears just kept quietly streaming down my face… when I turned to look at my Mom, she had tears too 😀
Btw, I never thought it would happen. I never understood it until it happened to me.

I didn’t cry, but it did feel ‘right’ and super exciting!

no offense at all to anyone who cried. But, for me, it was just a dress. I was excited to find a white dress that didnt make me look like a cow…that was about it LOL

@bestbuddies: That was my goal, too! And honestly, the dress that I went there for I tried on first. It was great and I was happy. I then tried on 3 more dresses and the last one did something to me! I was fine was she was doing the corest in the fitting room, I thought it was a nice dress. I came out and showed my Mom. We thought it was nice. I took this long walk to the big mirror and… cried. I cannot explain it, it was everything I wanted and more. I never thought I’d find something that beautiful and feel so beautiful in it. I think it’s the moment where all the stress leaves your body and you just know it’s the one. Well that was my experience anyways : )

I did not cry, but my mother, grandmother and Future Mother-In-Law were over there crying like babies and mumbling something about needing margaritas ASAP
