I think you look beautiful in your dress.

When I found my dress, it gave me the look I wanted. I felt beautiful in it, it flattered my body, and I didn’t want to search for another dress. I felt like the dress was “so me”. However, neither my mama nor I cried.


P.S.: Welcome to weddingbee!

You look beautiful! It is flattering, and it has a very soft look.

I didn’t have that “feeling” either. I went with mine because it had everything I had said I wanted in my design: lace, cap sleeve, open back, sash. Then I found all those things in a dress, and said “here it is!” Then I bought it and had millions of alterations done to it, and every time I’ve gone back for a fitting I’ve liked it more and more!

I didn’t love my dress when I first tried it on; it was the “crowd pleaser” that had what I was looking for, but I just didn’t feel like a princess when I wore it. I thought that maybe I am just not a girl who cares about the dress (I’ve never been too interested in fashion, so that made sense). But when I took my mom for the second try-on, I felt so much better about it! Maybe I was just in a bad mood the first day, but thank goodness I went back and tried it on again, since it felt so much better! I don’t think I have the most gorgeous dress in the world, but it is comfortable, I can wear a regular bra under it, and it feels like “me”. Maybe you just need a few days to let it sink it (because, let’s face it, the dress process is CRAZY!).

As for your dress, it is beautiful, and you look wonderful in it! I think it’s great! πŸ™‚

Sadly, I was alone when I first found my dress. I stopped at a bridal shop on a whim after work. I got choked up and thought, “Dammit, why is there no one with me?!?!”

I needed to make sure it was the one, so I tried it on later for two friends, and we all got choked up! So for me, I definitely knew it was “The one.”

1) I like the dress a lot and think it looks good on you.

2) When I went dress shopping, I was kind of disappointed that my mom wasn’t crying when I tried on the dress – but then my mom isn’t like that! I think that a lot of the crying/feelings are what is on TV and movies. My mom said “just because I didn’t cry about it, doesn’t mean I don’t love it.”

That said, I do think that you (anybody really) should like your dress and feel beautiful in it.

It seems to me you are not happy with the dress and want everyone to convince you that you are — everyone loves it, but do YOU? I know it’s so hard to decide when you love so many things — and when you have that added desire of wanting to make the most of out a very important choice.

My personal thoughts?  I just love this dress! I can tell you that is my honest feelings because I bought this exact dress on Saturday! πŸ™‚ I tried on quite a few things and everything looked lovely…from the heavily detailed beaded dresses to soft romantic dresses like this one. When I walked out in this one, both my mother and my furture Mother in Law cried. The dress was just soft, elegant, and etheral looking. It made me feel beautiful and delicate! I can tell you I am a indecisive person and I tried very hard to find faults with this dress (as with any dress)– I couldn’t! I am also going to purchase a veil with the swarvorski crystals lining the edge because t it went perfect with the dress and both sparkled like stars on a dress. I kept running my hands along the dress because it was just so lovely to touch. I can go on and on….

Now, that dress also looks like its not your size so you have to think of how beautiful that sweetheart neckline will be when its fitted correctly. Did you also have a underskirt under it to puff it out more for a more dramatic effect? You can also purchase a larger underskirt for my poof for drama too… just ideas.

However, if you don’t like the dress nothing will convince you. I suggest going back to where you bought it and looking it over again — and compare the things you want again. Do you know what colors the dress is? Mine is all ivory with silver…it may be the picture or lighting but it looked like the bodice has darker shade in it where the beading is?? Mine was all ivory with silver beading like I said.

Good luck with your choices!

I tried on about 20 dresses and when I found “the one” I sorta had a feeling.  I call it happy.  I didn’t cry or get choked up.  I just beamed from ear to ear and pranced around the dressing area.  I felt like a princess and I was a happy.  Also, I didn’t want to take it off!  So I bought it. πŸ™‚

Oh My God you look wonderful πŸ™‚


Go home, sleep on it and then see if it’s the first thing in your dreams or on your mind when you wake up!

You look beautiful, but please don’t by a dress because other people like it. I hated the dress that everyone loved.

When I tried on my dress I don’t know if I got the feeling, but I knew that I didn’t want to take it off. I didn’t believe in the “This is it” moment so I was pretty hesitant so I tried on a couple of other dresses and when I put my dress back on I knew it was the one.

I definitely knew it was my dress b/c

a) I felt amazing in it

b) I didn’t want to take it off and

c)  I cried!

Maybe you felt a little pressured to just pick a dress and compromised?  It looks great on you, but I’m a firm believer of getting what you truly want and makes YOU happy even if it takes awhile!  I visited over 15 stores in 4 different cities before I found it, and had almost lost hope when I found my dress πŸ™‚

First of all I think you look great in your dress!

As for the feeling thing, I wasn’t expecting a feeling at a certain dress.  I was more expecting a feeling in regards to the day.  Trying on dresses in general and seeing my self in an actual wedding dress.  Seeing my mom’s face when she saw me in a dress for the first time.  Those kinds of things are what brought my “wow feeling.”  I knew the dress I wanted when I tried it on, not really because of a certain feeling but because after I tried it on, I compared every single other dress to it lol.  I guess my point is, it was more the atmosphere and my family that gave me that special feeling not the dress itself (thought I do LOVE my dress lol).

You look so pretty!!!!! Even more in that second picture! Love how tight-fitting but cute the top of the dress looks!

I’m the same I didn’t completely fell in love with it when I first tried it on. In fact, it is the complete opposite to the original style I was looking for AND once I paid it off I kinda wanted to change it. But the process of finding a dress was a bit too exhausting and I didn’t want to start from zero again!

With that said, don’t get me wrong, I didn’t cry when I found it but I did like it a lot, my big thing was the back of the dress and I love the design on mine! Hopefully my FH and the other people like it too. At least I, my parents, mother in law & sister did so it’s all good!:-)

i didn’t cry and i didn’t get “THE FEELING”… i just knew what i liked and didn’t like anything else i tried on…. i still LOVE my dress and i haven’t been swayed by any others.

it was the first dress i tried on (tho i tried on 15 others after)… i never went back to look again. and i haven’t seen any online that i would’ve liked better on me, esp in the price range.

I tried on like 40 dresses and never got that feeling… I did, however, get that feeling when I saw a picture of the one I ordered. Wedding date: Sept 10th and I will not get to see of touch my dress till mid august! but i know in my bones its the right one.
