Simply gorgous! Reality shows give a warped view on “reality”. People that cry at the dress are far fewer than the TLC shows. Most are like you, it’s just a dress. As mentioned in previous posts, my dress shopping was less than ideal. I cried at two stores, not from “he pretty dress and finally feeling like a bride”. I cried out of frustration and the ridiculous mark up, how I looked crap in everything but manage to look decent in everyday dresses. You look stunning. And it is normal to have doubts and not have the big emotional moment. Maybe not so normal tearing up at a shop in front of the Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law while in a wedding dress. I felt, still feel, pretty dumb

Your dress is beautiful! I didn’t have the emotional crying with my dress either, and the wedding dress shows definitely don’t help if you didn’t have that type of moment. Don’t stress about it, though. Come wedding day, you will know it is the perfect wedding dress!

OP…  Do not worry…  I started dress shopping for myself over one year ago for an elopement dress.  I felt very disconnected from the entire process and almost ‘business like.’  But, whatever.  I did find my dress and I am actually very happy with it, its very beautiful and perfect.

Your dress is beautiful on you and fits your theme perfectly.

I loved my dress, but I didn’t cry. (At least not until I went to pay. Haha!)

Your dress is wonderful.

You look gorgeous. I didn’t cry when I tried on my dress either. I didn’t really have a “this is the one” moment either. I just felt that it was a beautiful dress, it was perfect for our Sunday morning wedding, and I loved it. I know it’s easier said than done, but try to be confident. I’m sure there will be plenty of emotion to spare on your wedding day.

ladylisasmiles:  I ended up changing my mind and getting a second dress. The dress you have chosen is lovely! That being said, YOU have to love it too. Keep a casual eye out for something else. If you stumble upon something that makes you light up inside, then go for it! No shame in it. If not, oh well, you still have a pretty wedding dress!

As a fellow weeper (seriously, I cry so easily), I didn’t have a moment either. I asked my saleslady if that’s normal and she said “in my 40 years of working here I’ve only seen a handful of brides cry”. I agree with theatrejulia, reality shows have totally warped what the process is actually like

I didn’t shed a tear! I knew it was the dress because I didn’t want to take it off! For all the other dresses I kept saying “let’s try the next one…”
