    I thought I’d found “the one” for each trip I took. I finally went with my mom, and she cried at another one, which I admit, made me look like  a”bride” but it was too traditional for me. The one I know was “the one” was when I kept jumping up and down like a little girl wearing her first poufy dress in. I couldn’t take my eyes off of myself! And when they asked me “what would you change/modify about it?” I said “NOTHING!”

    I just picked one that had the qualities I was looking for (mermaid, sweetheart neckline, not a lot of sparkles and beading). It wasn’t really an emotional thing for me, I just picked one I liked and was done with it.

    I got Mikaella 1406.

    I voted for tired of looking because I’ve bought two thinking they were the one and neither gives me that feeling. They’re nice, but I’ve not had a moment.

    I bought two dresses thinking they were each the one. I wasn’t looking anymore but I happened to see a dress in a wedding magazine and had to try it on. So glad I did because I can not stop thinking on it. Needless to say, I bought it. =)

    I knew the look I was going for and that I want it to be flowy….so my Maid/Matron of Honor and scoured the internet and went to different shops and one day she emailed me a pic of a dress that embodied everything I wanted and we drove 6 hours just to try it on and it was the ONE. 🙂

    Actually, I didn’t want to try on my dress at first. It wasn’t my style, it was too girly, I hated the sight of it. The saleswoman and my mother kept bugging me about it so I reluctantly tried it on. I stepped out and onto the platform and new it was the one. I didn’t cry or anything, I just looked at her and said, “uhh, I think this is it…” haha

    @KaitlinHudson: Ha! I’m glad I wasn’t the only one w/ a story like this!

    Mine was the 1st dress I tried on b/c the saleswoman was just so excited to get me in it. I thought it was going to be all wrong and hideous on me. BUT, it was so flattering and the details were amazing… AND my mom cried 🙂 After trying on about 8 others, I put it on again and knew I’d buy it. 

     I wanted to sleep on it, and we visited another bridal salon (who wouldn’t let me try anything on, grrr). I didn’t see anything at the other place that compared well to the 1st dress! It wasn’t what I was expecting, but I do LOVE it and it’s perfect for me.

    I didnt vote because I didnt really have any of those feelings. For me, the dress was flattering and I did not want to take it off – I felt beautiful in it! I didnt cry, hadnt imagined myself in any dress, it was only the 5th dress I tried on and I didnt stop thinking about it because I bought it the same day I tried it on for the first time!!

    I don’t think it’s because I got tired of looking, it was that my friends and I all agreed that this was the best looking dress they’ve seen on me.  It was as I pictured would be the best for me, not a dream but realistically, empire waists look best on me.

    It was one of the dresses that I picked out online before my bridal appointment.

    It was the dress that my family and friends all immediately pounced at on the rack at the bridal store, before any of them knew that I had also picked it out online.

    There were three other dresses that I liked, but all three weren’t quite there for me. I felt kind of stressed out at my last bridal shop appointment because I really wanted to make a decision that weekend, and I didn’t want to go empty handed, but I wasn’t feeling crazy about any of the dresses and I knew my time was running out. Everyone said that when I put on the dress I eventually bought, my face/demeanor completely changed. I didn’t cry or anything (not a very emotional person) but I felt relaxed and happy instead of anxious.

    Everyone agreed that it was the best by far of my top 4 dress choices, and that sealed the deal.

    I feel better and better about my decision now because every dress I see online or on SYTTD for example, just makes me more excited about my own dress! So I guess that definitely means I picked the right one. 🙂

    @Miss Starry Night: Uhh, what?? A bridal salon didn’t let you try on any gowns? That… does not make any sense at all.

    The following was not an option, so I didn’t vote.  I knew it was the dress because I didn’t want to take it off.  I only cried because my friends started crying.

    I didnt cry, but I did get breathless and kept saying over and over ” I love this dress” lol… I didnt want to take it off and after trying on a few other gowns I asked to try this one on again and had the same exact reaction to the dress all over again.
