I felt….Wierd LOL I don’t know what I expected but it was kind of overwhelming but underwhelming at the same time.  I don’t even know if that makes any sense.  I guess I thought I’d have that “OMG I’m going to cry!!”  feeling and I didn’t, I just looked like me in a pretty white dress and a veil on my head.

I felt giddy, but not overly emotional. I didn’t cry or anything. I just felt excited that I was getting married, it did make it seem more real.

Yeah, I would go with giddy also. I couldnt believe that I was trying WEDDING dresses for ME!

I felt excited, giddy and distracted lol. I couldn’t really focus, I was all over the place. But when I found the one, I knew and couldn’t be more happy. No regrets here!

I felt kind of pretty, I guess.  I think @futureMrsCPT pretty much explains how I felt!

I thought it looked really nice, no big lightbulb or emotional moment though.

I did think a veil really completed the look though. And I definitely had opinions about the different types of veils I tried on.

I have to be honest that when trying on dresses and even putting my dress and veil together at the boutique I really didn’t get very emotional. Yeah I loved the combo and the look but I didn’t feel anything in particular.

Now on my wedding day that was a different story. I literally gasped for air when my veil was on and I stepped into my dress. I realized this wasn’t pretend, or pre-planning. This was THE day I was getting married….in merely a few hours. I got a little shaky and overwhelmed and needed a moment to take it all in. I’m not a cryer but I came really close!

I love this photo of when I first was getting dressed. I was so nervous I kept falling over when she tried to help me with my slip and shoes. 😛

I felt really, really weird. A bit like it was all a dream, I kept checking I still had my e-ring on, lol! After a little while in the first bridal salon, I started to relax and have fun, then I felt super-excited and had this huge silly smile all over my face. When I found the one I did actually start crying a little bit, and that is not like me at all, lol. So to sum it up I was a big bag of emotions.

@ Treejewel19 – that photo is so beautiful, you look gorgeous. I bet I’ll be the same, whenever I get nervous my feet seem to operate separately from the rest of my body, lol!

I was a little bit embarrased, It was the first dress I tried on, and I loved it. But my whole family was there, so I was very self conscious. Especially when i looked down (the dress did not fit up top at all! i felt like the whole world could see!!!) when they brought out the smaller size, I knew it was the dress.

(ughhhh weird face!!!)

I felt a little annoyed, actually. I wasn’t interested in a veil and didn’t like it on, either. The consultant was just really insistent that I wear one though. Oh well. 

Well I had THE dress and a really pretty headpiece on, that was nice though. Not very emotional, but I felt beautiful which is not common for me.

@inky_1:  I wouldn’t put on a veil until I found a dress I thought was THE one. The consultant picked one out for me that perfectly matched my dress, a waltz length with pointed tips. 

As soon as she clipped it in my hair, it solidified what I already knew: this was my dress and this is how I want to look on my wedding day.

My first reaction was ‘wow’ and then I got annoyed because the shop lady wouldn’t leave me alone to just look at the dress. She kept yabbering on, telling me to turn this way and that.

I wish I had of asked for more time just to be in the dress, walk around, sit down etc.
