I only went to one store. I put on the dress and looked at myself and started crying. I was done. I brought my entire family back to see it, at first they said that they wanted to see other dresses, but then they knew too. It was only the second dress I tried on and I needed to look no further. I based the rest of the wedding on my dress.
Before I wasn’t sure if I wanted the whole Catholic mass; but the spanish lace around the edge decided for me!!!
Tell me your stories!

I only went to one store and tried on about 10 dresses. I knew what I wanted and really didnt expect to find it all on one dress, but I did. It was the second dress that I tried on and I fell in love. I tried on more and still like it the best. I mean it had everything….sweeheart neckline, corset back, beautiful beading, poofy skirt…. and it doesnt weigh a million pounds….
My mom didnt think a poofy dress would look right, but they she saw me and was like "I should have known you would be able to pull it off…."
That made me feel even better.

I found mine the first day. I went to the salon, said "no strapless, please". That left approximately 5 dresses to try. The third one was it. I loved it, my mom loved it, the lady helping me loved it. I went to another salon the next day to see what else was out there, but nothing else made me look half as good as that one. I went back and tried it again to be sure, and ordered it!

As soon as it was on, my face just lit up. I loved it, and I didnt want to take it off. Also everyone else in the room was oohing and ahhing.

I was just super excited about it, it looked great, and I was like this is it. no tears, no crying, none of that craziness. my friend who got married in april knew it was the one and she started crying.

as soon as it was on, It just felt right, I can’t explain it more than that. I loved the fabric, I love how it felt on me, I love how it made me feel and as soon as I walked out my Maid/Matron of Honor just burst into tears and she was not emotional throughout the entire process before that! it was just perfect for me!

I didn’t have the same "this is the one" reaction everyone else talks about. However, after trying on what seemed like hundreds of dresses(it was probably only about 30-40), it was the dress I kept going back to over and over again. Also, when I sent pictures of the dresses to my friends, they all said they could see it in my face which one I liked the best. I don’t know how they could tell – I sure couldn’t! 🙂

I tried on one dress in the first store. That was it. I couldn’t imagine loving any other dress half as much once I put it on. The normal, rational thought of "let’s see what another dress looks like to compare" never even crossed my mind. I’m a pretty picky and indecisive shopper normally, but this time I just really knew. Plus it had everything I had ever wanted but didn’t think I could find all in one dress: straps, covered buttons, sweetheart neckline, beautiful fabric and I could sit in it! I guess sometimes you just know…

I tried 10 dresses beautiful designer dresses at Bridal garden, they were gowns from fashion shows donated by designers; then I went to a sample sale at Kleinfeld and picked out 2 ideal dresses; my mom liked the ivory but it didnt match my veil, it was beautiful just not what I wanted; the second was pure white, embroidered small waist and EXACTLY what I have been drawing and imagining for the past 15 years.
I CRIED, never thought I would, but it was like all of a sudden my dreams felt real, I was emotional and my consultant gave me a hug my sis, yep, that’s the one she cried. My mom liked the other one, it was also beauitufl but not what I wanted and more expensive but even the consultant knew I liked the white less expensive one best and implied I should stick to my choice, aw…

I saw the dress on the hanger and melted. When I tried it on, I swear, the dress and I bonded. I loved my dress instantly. I’ve probably tried on 30 dresses, but NONE of them made me feel the way my dress makes me feel. My dress was the first one I saw, and I tried not to let that sour my search, but it did. I am so happy with my dress. I didn’t cry or anything, but I never stopped smiling the whole time I tried it on. I am keeping my dress at the shop until right before the wedding, and I seriously drop by on my lunches sometimes just to visit my dress. I’m pathetic, I know, but that’s how much I love it! LOL.
