Literal LOVE. I know a lot of briddes claim this and I completely believe it.
…however, I don’t think I am the type who is physcially capable of falling in love with a dress. They all kind of start looking the same after seeing so many of them.
But who knows! I have yet to try any on, so we will see if the wedding dresses prove me wrong!
Did you pick your dress because it worked, becuase it was your favorite dress, or because you full out fell in love with it?

I browsed online for endless hours (and days), and the second I saw my dress I fell in love with it. I started calling every shop I could find to see who could get me a sample to try on. It was the only dress I ever tried on and i bought it on the spot.

@freshflowers: When I purchased the dress I had no strong emotions.
However, when I look at my wedding pictures I DO fall in love with my dress! Before the wedding my dress was a dress but now it is just different 🙂
I love it more and more with every picture I see 🙂

I wasnt in love with my dress when I ordered it…..I didnt have that omg wow moment or anything. I wont have the wow moment until its my wedding day and my hair/makeup are done, my veil is on and im ready to go down the isle. Right now its just another dress but it will mean more to me when the wedding arrives.

- Wedding: May 2014 - Beach
I was just talking to my friends about this. And they all pretty much were shocked when I told them ” I didn’t get that emotional while trying dresses on or when I have finally picked my dress” they were all like what and how come. I’m also not the type of woman who can fall in love with a dress. I saw it online, liked it, tried a few and tryied the ones i liked the most then took the decision becaust it was the prettiest one I have seen out of all the dresses I tried on and it worked around my budget. I still see some pictures of dresses and say wow this is a lovley dress. But I will never spend 5000 $ on a dress when I know I can look pretty in a 1000-2000 $ one 🙂 So No I didnt fall in love withh my dress. I liked it a lot and decided to buy it

… was a pretty dress that fit the bill for my wedding.
It was a big poofy ballgown which looked good on me.
I’m not really one for trying on clothes and what not, I’m normally more of a jeans & tshirt kind of girl… so dress shopping wasn’t a super awesome experiance for me, nor did I want it to be.

I saw my dress on another girl and thought, that dress is really nice and then I tried it on, and BAM! I was in love, and didn’t want to take it off!

I never would have thought that I will really fall in love with my dress (I actually felt myself falling in love gradually while I was trying it on). The think is, it is a dress that I would have never picked out of all the other dresses (not from the picture, not from the rack). It was actually showed me by shop lady because when I came to the shop first thig I told her was that I don’t want strapless dress and I want more ball gown type dress. After discussing why I don’t want strapless, and after realising that slimmer dresses would be more suitable to me, she brought two strapless dresses, just to try on. When I put my dress on, it honestly felt like a dream dress (like enchanted woods dress 😀 ) I actually could feel how I liked the dress and how it made me feel more and more. I didn’t say yes straight away, although I was mega excited. I thought- since it is absolutely opposite to what I actually was thinking about first, I decided to go and try on more dresses.
No other dress made me feel the way this dress does. ( even though I would say there were some dresses that would look absolutely gorgeous).

@freshflowers: Mine was definately the most stunning and it also made me feel the most beautiful and happiest when I was wearing it. I just love it. I continued trying on a few dresses after that one, but it was more for fun because I knew in the back of my mind that I had already found the one. I went back the next day and bought it. I have not had a single moment of regret since I made the decision, but I also completely stopped looking at that point as well.

When I found my dress, I just felt happy and excited to wear it. I liked it a lot because it was so comfortable. I was not expecting to “fall in love” and be super-emotional about it, because it’s just a dress and material stuff tends not to make me emotional to begin with. No weeping or screaming, just a good feeling.

@freshflowers: I fell in love with mine as soon as I saw it on-line and then more so when I tried it on.

@freshflowers: Although I love both my dresses, I didn’t ”fall in love” with any of them. They fit the bill and the look I was going for. I don’t really ”love” anything material to that point, to be honest. Except maybe my childhood teddy bear, haha ! I’ll be selling both dresses after I’m married. They’re pretty things, but I’m not that attached to them.

It was simply the most stunning dress I tried on. I remember going into one salon and seeing it on a mannequin, saying “wowww”, and asking an employee if she could take it off the mannequin and put it in my changing room. Then when I tried it on I saw the price tag and it was well above budget. So, I kept shopping at multiple salons and then I found it again, for cheaper AND 20% off because it was a (pristine) sample. If I had done anything to get it the first time I saw it, bawled when I tried it on, etc, maybe then I would’ve voted “Love”.

I was a bit like @Payless…I didn’t have any strong emotions when I bought the dress. My mom loved it (almost a first!!) and the price was 1000% awesome, and it fit all of my “must haves” for my dress. I thought it was pretty on me, but got overwhelmed when my mom kept saying I had to get it. I did not have a “Say Yes to the Dress” moment at all.
Once I had it shipped home and tried it on again, I fell completely in love with it. Never had any dress regret, not once.
On my wedding day I didn’t want to take it off!
