    I didn’t, and I am a crier in general, but I was very happy about it regardless =D

    I cried when I found my dress and my veil. I didn’t think I would get that feeling or even know what that feeling was until I put in on and knew I never wanted to take it off. But the funny thing is that when I look a picture of it I hate it, but when it’s on me I feel amazing and want to wear it all the time.

    No crying over here!  I’m not really a crier, so I wasn’t worried or surprised!

    I didn’t … even when I tried on the designer gown (that was wayyyy out of my price  range) that I knew was “the one.” I was just really happy and giddy, but not emotional and teary.

    Totally didn’t cry.  I may wanna cry now though, since I’m soooo over the dress.  Its typical of my personality, I get bored easily!

    I loved my dress, but I didn’t have “the moment”.  I am not a sentimental person and I tend not to wear my emotions on my sleeve.  I was torn between two dresses, and I chose the one that felt more me.  But, I also stopped looking at dresses.  I think that is the key to not having dress-regret!

    I teared up when I put it on with the veil.  As did my mom.  My Maid/Matron of Honor actually told me another one was “the one” so I initially went with that one.  Then, I realized it was what I wanted and decided to go with the one that got me and my momma all weepy.

    This is interesting to see… I’m guessing I won’t cry, just because I generally only cry when I’m sad or angry.

    nope, didn’t cry. i couldn’t actually try the dress on, so maybe that was it? althhough, when i picked i up, i tried it on and didn’t cry either.  i just had an internal “oh shit” moment.

    I didn’t cry – I was with a group of my friends and I tried on a million – I felt like a fat puff ball and all I could think about was the Stay Puffed guy from Ghostbusters and so maybe I did cry a little at that thought.  But after trying on a million different dresses – ok, so maybe it was more like 30 – I kept coming back to mine.  I just loved the way I felt in it and how it was “me” – very simple.  I wasn’t even “officially” engaged when we went, but my guy was out of town for 3 months and told me to get it if I wanted to and so it’s been hanging in it’s bag for going on a year! I put it on when my best friend from out of town was visiting and I still loved it in August so hopefully in March when I put it back on to get it altered, I will love it still.

    Nah, no crying here.  I just tried on a bunch of dresses and kept coming back to mine.  Luckily it was a great price and fit wonderfully (I bought the sample)  I haven’t even gotten that “excited” about it until now that the wedding is getting closer.  I’m just not a person to get crazy-excited about clothes and stuff.

    That said, I love my dress and it’s beautiful.  It makes me very excited that in all the wedding pictures I see, no one really has a dress that looks like mine.  That’s kind of what I was going for :o)

    I teared up a bit, but was feeling something more like relief that I had found it just in the nick of time to get it ordered.  Except it was in a week later, not 6 weeks like they kept scaring me with!

    I didn’t!! I don’t think I’ve even cried through this whole experience…I may get teary eyed on the wedding day but it’s very rare that I shed happy tears!
