Ummm… no I didn’t cry when I chose my dress. I didn’t jump for joy either. I actually felt a little nervous about it. It was a couple of sizes too small. The good thing is that my aunt is a seamstress and she says she’s going to bring it out and convert it into a mermaid style dress (it was a princess cut). I’m worried that it won’t look right. The good thing is that my aunt and my sister bought it for me. It was out of my budget. I was just so excited to buy my dress I mean everyone keeps asking me if I have my dress yet. I felt pressured to buy a dress. But honestly unless it gets altered I still don’t have anything to wear yet……………………………….. Wish me luck bees please!

I teared up, but it was mostly due to seeing my mom, auntie, and MOHs tear up once the veil was on and I had decided it was the one.

I didn’t cry, and actually never expected to – the myth I had heard was that your mother is supposed to cry, and you’re supposed to have a feeling that it’s just right. I definitely got both of those! She almost had to step outside. Here’s what I emailed someone when I picked my dress:
“I tried it on again on Monday and I knew the second I put it on. Hell, I knew the second she pulled it off the rack. I’ve tried on 50+ dresses and not one other has made me feel that surge of happiness. I just glow when it’s on. It feels right, it feels comfortable, it feels me. It makes me feel like I want to marry [FI].”
I’m on board with y’all, however, that any of these myths are destructive, because how could anyone predict what their emotions will do in response to a garment? Why torment yourself with how you felt about your dress, as though it’s as important as picking your spouse? No one should be made to feel that they’re “supposed” to feel anything.

- Wedding: September 2010 - Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery
I am a 2 dress bride.
With Dress #1, I didn’t cry. I liked it, but I think it was more my aunt and my mom’s reactions that made me get the dress. I regretted it soon afterwards.
With Dress #2 (the dress I will be wearing), I tried it on several times before I took the plunge and bought it. As I was walking out of the salon with my parents, I started to cry because i was so happy. And I’m not a crier. So it was definitely an affirming moment. I’m really happy.

I am a crier in general, prolly about 2-3 times per week, but no I didn’t cry when I found my dress.
I did however cry on my first dress shopping trip. It was maybe the 4th or 5th dress I tried on and while I liked it, I didn’t love it. But then the sales lady plopped that veil on my head, and I went from wearing an OK white dress to totally looking like a BRIDE! That’s when I started to get all teary eyed!!

I didn’t cry, but I didn’t want to rip it off like all the other ones and I kept swaying in it… a very good sign.

I didn’t cry, and I’m a big emotional baby. I think it’s because I never found a dress that I felt was *~*~PERFECT*~*~, but I had exhausted all of my options so I just sucked it up and picked one. Whatever, I love my shoes. Those are cry-worthy!

I didn’t cry, rather I had this feeling that I would be happy with this dress. I worked in bridal and had seen A LOT of dresses. I tried the dress on and felt quite comfortable. I tried it on a second time at the end of my appointment and had the sense that “I’ll be happy with this and I could do wear this.” It was just a nice, satisfied feeling.

I chose other-I am generally a crier (very emotional) but for some reason I didn’t cry even though I knew the dress was perfect! Was the third one I tried on and that was it-didn’t even need to try any more on. Was such an easy process for me. Now, what worries me is crying while walking down the aisle and during vows. There is NO way I’m getting through all that without shedding some tears and THAT scares me. I hope I can hold it together!

I’m a crier usually… watching shows, commericials, etc.. .but I didn’t cry when I found my dress and I knew I probably wouldn’t but I was still THRILLED when I found it.

I didn’t cry, but I am not a big crier in general. I definitely didn’t want to take it off and in the month since I’ve purchased it, I have looked at pictures of myself in it at least once a week!

I did not cry but I just knew it was the one. I felt so happy and beautiful in it!!! I think my mom cried if that counts.
