    I loved my dress when I tried it on and couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I had to go back and buy it. But I never teared up or anything. I wonder how many of us did…

    when i first ‘tried on’ my dress i had to hold it up (bc it was a size (something too small i cant remmeber) and i am a size 14/16)… i liked it but didnt love it and i knew i wasnt buying it without trying it on… the bridal shop ordered a larger sample for me to try on, but in the 3 weeks i spent waiting for that to come in i definitely fell in love with it and once i tried it on i knew it was the one!

    Not everyone has a, OMG this is the one reaction. And even if they do, sometimes they get those little doubts later on. A lot of people have wedding dress remorse, myself included (and I was one of those OMG this is the one girls lol). I saw my dress online and fell in love with it. Found out the designer and style number, tried it on and BAM that was it. Shortly after that, I began to have little doubts. Partly because I still see dresses that are beautiful, but then I try on my dress and fall in love with it all over again. So don’t stress about it too much and just know that whatever dress you pick will be special simply because it’s your wedding dress =)

    I knew my gown was “the one” as soon as I saw it, and even more when I tried it on.

    lol, i voted for all three! my first dress i regretted and i sold it (and i had only “liked” it).  Then my second dress (MY dress) was so far off from what i imagined, that i couldn’t accept that it was mine!  so its not that i had to “grow”  into liking it.  I put it on, LOVED it, but took it off and thought, “what am i thinking, this isn’t what i was imagining my dress would be”…..but from that moment on, i was comparing every other dress to it, and so i finally accepted it was THE dress.  make sense?

    This poll could have a lot of in-betweens.  I bought a dress online, it was awful.  Got another one that was slightly better and I felt stuck with it.  It too, was not what I was expecting, but I made myself love it, rocked it with confidence, and in the end- it worked out.  I think that is what matters.

    I loved it, but mostly I felt comfortable and confident that it was the one. 🙂 No big reaction or anything–just contentment.

    I knew it was the one when I saw it and tried it on. I’m indecisive though so I still had to think about it. I also wanted to go to this one last store to try on dresses, but when I got there, I really didn’t want to try on anything. I just sort of went through the motions. I went back 2 more times to try on My dress and fell in love again each time. I finally ordered about a week after the last time I tried it on. Can’t wait for it to get here!

    I never really loved it, had second thoughts about it from day one, and it only got worse when I received the dress. Since “returning” is not an option with bridal salons I ordered another dress at the last minute in addition to the first one. I still wore the original dress for the ceremony since I’d spent so much money on it and my mom loved it, but it never grew on me. I felt self-conscious in it even on the day of my wedding. Not a good feeling.

    I did not know right away (my mom says she did cause it made her cry the first time). My dress was one of the first ones I tried on and I liked it but in no way did I think it was the one. I continued to shop and just kept thinking of that one….and even chose a different dress and set up an appointment to get fitted. But I left the store and looked at the pics and realized the one I was gonna purchase looked horrid, and the other one I liked looked really good. So I went back and put it on again and then knew it was the one. Still had a few minor seconds thoughts after purchasing because I keep looking at all the gorgeous gowns on here but mine just came in and I am sooooo excited to put it on again 🙂

    I loved my dress out of logic, so no I didn’t cry!  I had tried on a few dresses and loved elements of them all, and when I tried on this dress it had all those elements.  As I was standing in the bridal salon it was a bit of a growing love…like yea, i like this, it’s fun, it’s got what i’m looking for…this could be the one!  my BM’s and mom loved it so that helped.  I didn’t but it that day but when it went on sale a few weeks later and i retried it (at a great price) i ordered it then and there and so far, no regrets.  I’m excited for it to come in and try on ‘my’ dress, not just the sample!

    I didnt love it till I tried it on. I wasnt too impressed with it while it was on the hanger, but once it was on my body, It was instant love
