You did not burst into tears when you found your dress!
I think there are TONS of us out there that didn’t – we may like, or even love our dresses, but we didn’t shed a tear when we found it.
It is one of the worst myths out there – you will JUST KNOW when you find your dress, you will CRY, you will SEE YOURSELF walking down the isle as soon as you put it on …
It leads to tons of re-thinking, apprehension, second-guessing, and even feeling bad: There must be something wrong with me, or it is the wrong dress because I didn’t have a major emotional outburst when I put it on.

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.

For the record: I didn’t cry when I found it, I didn’t want to take it off, and I knew it was the right one (I had tried on well over 60 dresses so I was sure) … but I didn’t cry then.
I did cry when I brought my grandmas to see it before I ordered it (one of my grandma’s is 93 – she may not make it until my wedding day, so I had a feeling this might be the one chance for her to see the dress)

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!
