I did have that moment when I tried on THE dress. I got all jittery and didn’t want to take the dress off! Hang in there.

Yes. It’s true, you will not want to take it off!

I didn’t have that moment of finding "The One."  It’s just different for everyone.  I think my dress is really pretty, and I think I look pretty in it, but I never had that one defining moment where I thought, "Oh, this is IT!"

I had the ‘aha moment’.

There were soo many dresses I really liked. So I just figured that the aha moment is just a myth like in the movies or something, and resolved to just pick the dress I liked the best out of the ones I’d tried on. Anyway, I ended up going back to one salon to re-try on a dress that was on my maybe list, and the sales woman pulled one more dress for me to try… and all of a sudden I was crying! What!?! I’m so not a cryer, either, so that was my ‘aha!!!’ 

I think you’ll have it. Or at least I hope you find a dress that you don’t hate, that would be a horrible way to spend your wedding day! I would try on a bunch of dresses that you wouldn’t normally try on, I know I ended up with a dress that isn’t even close to the original dress I had in my mind when I started looking. You never know where YOUR dress is hiding! Happy hunting!

Ha. Great thread.

I’m wondering as well if this is a "old bride’s tale". Or a brides way of justifying buying a dress out of budget. ahahahha. Just kidding.

I hope I get it. But I won’t be disappointed if I don’t either.

I didn’t have the "ahhh" moment but I love my dress and I can’t wait to wear it! It’s going to look great and it was in my budget. And after all, I’m only going to wear it one day.

I haven’t had that moment, ever, with any dress. I guess i’m just not really a dress girl. I have however found dresses that looked good, fit my body well, and would be attractive and appropriate for the occasion. For me, that’s got to be good enough.

I had it–I didn’t want to say it out loud at first, though (because I never believed that would happen!).  But I felt that my dress was THE dress immediately, and so did my sister, and so did my friend when I went back the very next day to try it on again.  I went ahead and bought it and then I stopped looking–it’s so awesome to have that out of the way!

I didn’t the first 2 dress hunting trips I went on. Then we went to the Brides Against Breast Cancer sale up in Seattle. I tried on a ton of dresses (seriously like 8 – 10) and then put on "the dress". It took me a few moments to have the "ah-ha" feeling. But I did, and my eyes filled up with tears. Don’t get down on yourself, not everyone feels it so strongly right away, sometime it takes a min. (or 10 – or 60) to get there. Good luck!

Soon2bMrsWheeler, 

yes, I had it.  And I had given up all hope of having it.  Seriously, been to so many shops (like 10), tried on so many dresses (like 50).  I was really about to just buy anything at that point.  And then I had it. I was totally giddy and smiling when I put on "the one".  You’ve got plenty of time so don’t give up.  You *will* find it!

I kind of had it. I had tried on at least 30 dresses in 4 different shops, and about 6 or 7 at the shop I was at when I put it on. I immediately knew I loved it, but I wasn’t immediately like "oh my god this is it!" I kept saying, "Wow, I really like this one… "

Then the sales lady had me try on the other ones I’d selected, and for about 4 or 5 others I kept saying "I liked that other one better" and "I like it but not as much as that other one." So, she kind of made the decision for me and said sounds like that’s your one! Put it on again. And when I did, I loved it again.. and so our story began…

 I do kind of wish in hindsight I’d tried on other dresses of a similar style. Since then I’ve found pics of a dress that is almost identical but has a different style back, and I like that one’s back better. I suggest even when you find your "one" don’t buy it right away. I did because I’d driven 6 hours to get to that shop… but I still kind of wish I looked for other very similar dresses first.
