Oh I did the same thing! I picked my favorite dress to try on first and nothing else even came close. I don’t think it’s too strange either.

Mine is Justin Alexander.

Gorgeous dress! I did the same thing this past Saturday. Went to a store that was having a retirement sale (they were selling all their samples) and the second dress I tried on brought me to tears. I honestly thought that “bridal moment” stuff you see on TV was all BS until it happened to me. But I wasn’t ready to commit yet so my mom and I went to few more stores. 17 dresses later I still hadn’t gotten the same feeling. I went back to the first store and tried that dress on again and BOOM, I knew. Like they say, when you know, you know! Congratulations Bee, it’s a stunner!

The dress is gorgeous! The fact you went back to it after all the other dresses you tried says something!

With a perfect dress like yours, it’s no surprise that you said yes right away! Sometimes, you just know.

blondeambition0302 :  Definitely meant to be! What a BEAUTIFUL dress! I can totally see why you couldn’t shake it after trying it on!

Same story here. I bought the first dress I tried on. Oddly, I had only tried it on to reassure myself that I didn’t want that style (strapless ballgown) before looking at the ones I thought were more ‘me’. Well, I fell head over heels and every dress I tried on didn’t come close after. Put my first dress back on and it’s true what they say… when you know, you know! 

Congratulations on finding your one!

Beautiful dress!

I ended up buying the first dress I tried on. I knew it was the one, but my mom talked me into going to another appointment before buying it. She said it wasn’t bridal enough. I ended up making a deposit on a dress at the second place and was happy. Several weeks later I started having nightmares about my dress. The fourth or fifth night of it I rolled out of bed first thing in the morning to the find the first one! It was from a used wedding gown shop, so I was so worried someone had snagged it! It’s a $6000 dress originally from Kleinfelds and it was going for $350. 

The dress ended up still being there and I bought it! I lost money of the other dress, but I still saved a lot since I would have been spending $1000 on it. I love my dress and I’m glad I went back alone to try it on again!
