@vmec: Nice to hear your opinion! I don’t believe in the 50% divorce rate since I’ve read that it’s hovering around 40% and divorce also depends on other factors, but I would agree with you that people have to love themselves before they can be loved or love anyone else.
Some might call me naive, but I also believe in love that lasts a lifetime. I’ve seen it modeled for me, so I know it exists.

- Wedding: March 2014 - Brazil Room
I don’t think “in love” is the word, but I definitely felt a rush of “this is the one!” when I tried it on for the 2nd time (I set a few aside as potentials to retry on).

@freshflowers: I guess I’m other? I love my dress and I didn’t want to take it off, but it’s still a dress. I’m not IN love with it. Once we’re married, I’ll have it cleaned and then donate it. I don’t need to keep it. It’s not the most stunning dress I tried on either. However, it is the most ME dress that I tried on and I can’t imagine wearing another dress.

@DuckEBee: Oh my gosh, I love that dress!! I’ve never seen it before. Good thing I didn’t see it when I was shopping, lol–it looks a little like my dress only way nicer and more expensive!
OP: No, I didn’t fall in love with my dress, though I did like it a lot! I didn’t want to spend a ton, because the dress wasn’t a huge priority to me. I tried on a bunch, liked most of them, and picked the one I thought was the prettiest at a reasonable price–and I liked that it was comfortable! But like @Payless said, I do think I love it much more now that the wedding’s over and I’m starting to see it in pictures!

@freshflowers: I don’t think I can fall in love with a dress either but hey who knows! I know what kind I like!

@freshflowers: I always had a rough idea of the kind of dress I’d wear (although I know I’d look great in many different styles) and am having it custom-made, so unless she made it utterly hideous-looking (which she didn’t- it’s beautiful!), I’d be stuck with it.
I’m very capable of watching Say Yes to the Dress and browsing through all the recaps without thinking anything beyond “Her dress looked lovely!”
I don’t understand “dress regret”- are you so fickle? LOL

@howsweetitis: I love your dress! We must have similar taste 🙂 I’d never seen my dress before I tried it on. I don’t think Monique Lhuillier spends a lot advertising dollars on her Bliss collection which is sad- it’s all very beautiful!

I love my dress but I wouldn’t say I’m in love (no tears or anything) or that it’s the most stunning dress I tried on because I tried on some expensive ones that were really beautiful. In the end, I chose my dress because it was really me and it was very pretty and not overly expensive

@freshflowers: I fell in love with mine. I’m a fairly reserved person and expected to find a dress I liked and was happy to wear. I was wrong. I fell in love with my dress. Tried it on, coundn’t stop smiling, cried a little, and knew it was the one. I loved every single dress fitting and I really cannot wait for my Fiance to see me walk down the isle in it. I feel perfect in it and could not be happier in it!

I fell out of love with mine the day it arrived because it didn’t fit the way the sample did and the way the consultants assured me it would.

I didn’t fall in love. But it was the style I had pictured for the theme and venue, and it was by far the most flattering dress I’d tried on. It makes me feel pretty and that’s what’s important.

I tried on LOTS of dresses and bought 9 different ones… I fall in love easy I guess!
Anyway, THE DRESS was the one I loved the feel of and I loved the way it looked on me and I just felt glamorous and gorgeous and expensive and timeless and shiny and you know pretty much all the things you should feel on your wedding day…
This is the plain dress:
I had dress regret thinking it didn’t WOW everyone very much but it was ME that needed to feel the best in it and find the little tweeks that made me LOVE it.
This came in the form of a bolero and a statement necklace:
and in the end… its still love!
I want to go home and try it on again RIGHT NOW just talking about it… lol

I thought mine was beautiful, but I wouldn’t say I was “in love” with it. It fit my venue and was what I wanted, but no tears and I was going back and forth between two. I sometimes second guessed myself because I never tried on a few of my dream dresses, but now I have no regrets 🙂
