    Nope…I don’t really cry, especially not about a piece of clothing. I love my dress and it’s exactly what I wanted but I really didn’t place much importance on it so long as I felt I looked good in it and it was easy to move around in!

    I didn’t cry at all, and I went home and questioned the choice of the dress pretty much immediately.

    I went with my mom and SIL and neither of them got emotional either. We were all super practical. I had to take my BFF back with me to assure me it was a good choice and even when I put down the deposit, we were excited and giddy, but not really emotional.

    I cried a bit, but I think it was more about being relieved and overwhelmed with the fact of OMG I’M GETTING MARRIED than about my feelings over the dress itself. Plus, it had been a long day with the people I’m closest to, so emotions were running high (happy, excited, stressed, nervous, happy, overwhelmed, etc.) so tears were a good release!

    I almost felt bad that I didn’t cry. I was in a haze almost, like in the back of my mind I was just thinking “oh geez this is unexpected what’s going on I’m so confused!”

    I hadn’t planned on getting the dress that day. I hadn’t even planned on going to the shop for goodness sakes. I’m still kinda hazy about it.

    I did not cry, I was more in shock.  My dress was purchased at a Bridal show a whole year before my wedding date and was a rack sale. So when I tried it on it was a situation where I had decide then and there if I wanted it to get the huge discount.  It is a Maggie Sottero (Scarlet) and without the sale I would  never have been able to afford it.  I wanted a White dress but the dress was in Light gold and besides not being white it had almost everything I wanted. 

    I went for it..so it all happened very fast and I didn’t have time to cry over it I was just so shocked I bought my dress.

    I agree with some of the other ladies..although it is my wedding dress it is…just a dress..

    Just had my moment today….I did shead a few tears it was very emotional for me mainly b/c I have been looking so hard for the right one and trying to do it without my mom b/c she lives so far away and it would have been nice to have her with me but due to bad timing I had to so the dress shopping on my own. So today it was just me and the bridal consultant and I really didn’t think I would be one to cry but when she looked at me and said “what do you think” I couldn’t even say anything and the tears said it all!

    when i tried on my dress for the first time, had that “omg, this could be it” feeling, and i think i was kind of in shock for a second. when they put the veil on me, that’s when the tears started coming, but i fought them back because i didn’t want to make everyone else cry. i tried on a few more dresses and then tried on my dress again and decided that it was the one. and during the entire planning process, i had planned on buying my dress myself. when the saleslady asked for the deposit, my mom pulled out her credit card and said that she and my dad had decided to buy my dress for me. and that’s when i (and my mom) lost it.

    but maybe my tears were more a result of my mother’s generosity than finding my dress. or maybe a combination of both.

    This was my, very traumatic Yes to the Dress experience. (sorry if it’s long)

    We moved my wedding up early because my vavo (grandmother) is dying. Her pancreas is failing and she is not eligible for a transfer (age, weight, diabetes, pace-maker, etc). I literally had 3 months to plan a wedding. I wanted to purchase the dress myself, but my vavo insisted I take my mother so we could “bond”. I was never very close to my mother, and we never did bond much over a dress. I reallllly wanted to make my vavo happy, so I tried to please my mother, but nothing compared to THE dress.

    The Day:

    I passed by a bridal store almost every day for work. They had a GORGEOUS tiered modern victorian in the window that I had lusted after for weeks. I HAD to try the dress on, so I finally caved and made an appointment. I am very frugal and even though my mother was paying, I didn’t want her to spend thousands on my dress. I had no idea that they were so reasonably priced!! I tried on several dresses, and liked several of them, but I wanted that “bride” experience. Finally, I asked to try the dress in the window on. It was admittedly, 2 sizes too small, but I loved it. I didn’t cry, I was SUPER excited, followed by extreme disappointment. Momzilla plainly stated to the consultant, not to me, “WE are not considering this one”. I think I cried when I got home.

    I was crushed, as you could imagine. We tried on more dresses at that particular store, but nothing compared. She took me to yet another Bridal store, where she had me try on 30+ dresses!! I have lost 100lbs, but I am still not a size 2 in dresses. I’ve left the plus-sized department, but the body image was still there. To make matters worse, she ONLY wanted to see me in mermaid style, or fit and flare dresses. I am very short, and EVERYTHING made me look fat. Finally the consultant, who had picked out my sister’s wedding dress for her as well as helped my mom with several dresses over the years, said to my mother: “Ok, so you keep saying you want the dress to be HER decision, and you want HER to love it… but you keep picking dresses that don’t flatter her body type. If you REALLY want to make her happy, then suck it up and buy her the dress she wants. Otherwise, stop telling her she can pick what she wants.”

     

    I was FLOORED!! My mom was FLOORED! She agreed to purchase the dress, and when it finally came in we tried it on again. She loved it now that she could see how well it fit me and really flattered my body. I didn’t cry then, but when I told my fiance that I found a dress I LOVED I cried 🙂
