    I don’t know if I love it but I never wanted to take it off. But when my dress came in and I went to try it on I was instantly in love.

    I fell in love with mine the second I tried it on for the first time. There was no turning back, I didn’t try on any others after that. I knew for sure it was the one.

    I really liked all of the dresses I tried on.  I knew I wanted a Kenneth Pool and while I tried on a couple non KP dresses, I tried on the whole collection at Saks.  I didn’t have any crying moment or anything of the sort.  I actually did the entire dress shopping process at 2 stores and alone.  I picked the KP dress that was in the style I liked that felt the most like my personality.  I adored the way it turned out on our wedding day as well. 

    Honestly, I can understand crying when you put on the first wedding dress you try on because you are so overwhelmed with the OMG it’s actually happening, but crying when you find the dress you like just seems odd to me.  I also can’t really understand with the thousands of wedding dresses that are out there that only 1 would be flattering or look beautiful on a girl. 

    To me, it’s just a dress.  It’s a special dress that you wear on a very memorable day, but it’s still just a dress.

    Is there an option for “I loved the first dress I tried on, but it wasn’t my dress”?

    I loved the first dress I tried on.  I also loved the fifth, the sixth, the tenth, and the twelfth.  By the time I got to my third boutique, I had stopped looking for “OMG I LOVE THIS”.  Let’s face it; all the dresses I tried on were GORGEOUS.  But when I got to my dress, it was different.  It wasn’t one of those huge, dazzling, amazing designer dresses.  It wasn’t terribly unique, it wasn’t fancy.  But you know what?  While the others were beautiful dresses, this one made ME feel gorgeous.  I bought it.  Then I went home and looked at all the other dresses I tried on and I still loved them.  But they weren’t me.  So I marked “I put it on and I loved it”, but what I really meant was “I put it on and I loved ME in it”.

    Yes, I went shopping solo thinking I wouldnt find anything- but I put my dress on, and started crying.  I knew there was no other dress that would match it.

    Ditto to so many comments from bees above.

    The first dress I put on I loved and cried so thought it was the one and nothing else on this first shopping trip didn’t look half as good. Then, came the second trip due to doubts about this first dress and i’m glad I listened to them as then I fell in love, there were no tears just one big massive smile. It was the first dress I fell in love with when I saw it on the internet. I’ve been back since too to try it on again so I could have ‘that feeling’ and I loved it even more.

    I loved my dress the 1st time but thought there could be something better. Bought 2 more dresses and then bought my original dress.

    I tried on my dress, liked it, made my friend and fellow bride try it on, liked it on her better. She bought the sample, decided to go with a different dress, and I tried it back on. I added a black belt the second time and LOVED it. Now it is my dress 🙂

    I wasn’t head over heals but the more I look at it and me in it the more I fall in love.

    My dress was not in any catologs, as it was a new model for next year and the consultant at the store brought it to me “right off the delivery truck” thinking it would be the perfect dress, and guess what i was in love with it since the first time i put it on!

    This only sort of happened to me, which I why I answered “other” in the poll.

    I found a dress that I did love (not in a crying, OMG sort of way) but could not see myself paying for.  With my consultant’s help, I managed to find a sample dress that with significant alterations, and a few additions including straps, is the right dress for me.  I paid what I wanted to, which makes me feel good, and I think that the dress is pretty and right for the type of reception (cocktail) we are throwing.

    There may have been too much practicality when choosing my dress…but I wasn’t working at the time and wanted to be responsible.  I let myself be sad for a bit…and then set out to make my dress what I wanted.  I’m not naturally an optimist, but this worked for me.  

    I got teary at my last fitting.  It was the first time the dress felt like it was actually MINE.  🙂

    I have found a dress that I think I like, but don’t have any pictures of me in it NOR are there good pictures of it on the internet so I’m not sure anymore.

    I have 3 more appointments set up (have already gone to 4) and I am still hoping to find “the one”.
