I went to about 6 stores, but finally picking out my dress… which was actually found at store #3. I knew what i was looking for, and had seen this one online and in a magazine and was pumped when a local store (OK, it was an hour away) had the brand – and luckily, the dress. There was a dress that was #2, but was more than i wanted to spend… so when I tried on “the one” and the price was amazing… it was a no brainer. I still checked the other places out to see what was out there… but always kept comparing them to “the one”. I was VERY happy with my pick and am glad I had found it.

My mother is an NYU-trained costume designer who worked on several Broadway shows while she was still in New York, so I’ve worn… a lot of dresses over the year. Sometimes because she needed a real body to get something hemmed on, sometimes because I had a similar body type, sometimes because they needed pictures taken. As a result, I was expecting it to be a fairly analytical process – between her knowledge and my naturally no-nonsense, common sense nature.

I knew it was the right dress for me when I put it on and squealed. High-pitched, obnoxious, arm flailing squealing.

Apparently, my mother and Maid/Matron of Honor looked at each other when they heard me in the dressing room and they were like, “Yep, this is the one” before I even came out.

I knew it was the one because I didn’t want to take it off! I just kept staring at myself in the mirror in disbelief. I think I had it on for 45 minutes.

I knew it was my dress because I didn’t want to take it off. Ever. I didn’t cry or anything because I don’t get that emotional about clothes, but I just felt amazing and loved it and wanted to just keep walking around the bridal shop in it!

I ended up with the exact shape/style of dress that I thought I would, although I did try on other styles to see how they looked but I hated them. I am so excited for my dress to come in around March. 😀

I saw my dress online and I just instantly knew it was the one. I went to a few stores and tried different ones but I kept coming back to that one, and when I actually put it on I could see myself getting married. When I put it on again after alterations, I did actually get teary and finally understood why the brides on ”say yes to the dress” always cry :D. 

I think it’s like with the man – when it’s right, you just know!!

I went into it knowing I wouldn’t cry. I’m not an overly emotional person. I tried on a lot of dresses and felt beautiful in them all. But when I tried on my dress, I didn’t want to take it off and couldn’t stop smiling and laughing I was so happy. I was laughing because I was giddy. It was a feeling I can’t even describe

I saw my dress and thought i wouldn’t fit and look good. I didn’t want to try it, cause i didn’t want to be dissapointed. My friend told me to try it on anyways. I was amazed that it fit like a glove, so no alterations needed. I loved it, i felt like a bride. When my sister and friend saw me they both cried! So i started to cry. We were skyping with my mom and little sister and they loved it too. I thought i was just emotional because it was my first dress. So i tried some others on but kept coming back to my dress, so i bought it. I look at the pic of me in my dress everyday and fall in love with it all over again, everyday.
