    Thngs were very rushed when I found my dress.  My Fiance and I were moving 2,000 miles south in just 2 weeks and I wanted to find my dress with my mom and sister before we left.  When I found it, I shed a tear or two but I was honestly in such shock from everything that happened that I couldn’t really wrap my head around it all.  

    However, I recently had my first dress fitting and let’s just say, the flood gates FLEW open.  So many tears… it just all hit me how this is really happening! I told Fiance that it is absolutely necessary that he keep tissues in his jacket on our big day. HA!

    I cried a little. I definitely think it would have been the no-holds-barred tear fest if I had planned on shopping that day. I got my dress 6 months before I was engaged, and my mom and I only went in to LOOK at the dress because it was hanging in the window. I tried it on, got a little teary, but walked away without it because I didn’t want to buy a dress without being engaged. Well, we went back a week later and I left with the dress of my dreams (even without being engaged!) because it was a DEEPLY discounted floor sample (A $2500 Maggie Sottero. I got it for $500 and it also happens to be 5 sizes too big) because it was discontinued and therefore could not be ordered. Literally it was my only chance to get that dress. Almost a year later, my Maggie is still hanging in my closet, I now have a ring on my finger, and my first fitting to get all of my alterations started is in 2 weeks!

    My mom & I both cried when I put that dress on. It wasn’t bawling; just nice, happy tears.

    I never exspected me to even shed a tear. But as soon as I started ringing the bell to make a wish….BAM it hit me. I look at my mom and Future Mother-In-Law and they were crying. I never allowed myself to go into full cry mode, but I did shed some tears. So cool!!

    I didn’t cry as I didn’t make the actual decision in the store…  I kind of specifically didn’t want to commit to it right there as I did not want them to ring the bell. LOL 

    I was really giddy when I ordered it later in the day and was all sappy with Fiance for a bit but no tears. Maybe when it comes in and gets fitted.  My mom (who won’t be at the wedding – DW) might be there for that.  Crap.

    I didn’t cry at all, but I did have an emotional reaction. I couldn’t stop smiling and laughing. Even if I didn’t cry I definitely had a moment.

    i bawled like an idoit when i found my dress. i dont know if it was because it was the one or because i was just physically drained from all the opinions and the whole process…i didnt go to the store with the intention of buying a dress that day– it was my first actual dress hunt–was planning on going to atleast 4 different boutique but didnt need to.

    @Mrs_Pacman:  i cried the night before and while driving to the salon! i already knew which dress would be “the one” and got emotional and cried before ever trying it on! then when i did try it on i just beamed like never before and didn’t want to take it off!

    Didn’t shed a single tear. Left the store, tried on a few more dresses, came back, and pulled out my wallet. That’s it. Liek picking out the perfect Christmas turkey… I was willing to shop around, but not really emotionally attached

    I cried a LOT for a dress I didn’t buy.

    I choked up with MY dress, but held back because in my crazy brain, I’d cried once and wasn’t allowed to do it again?

    I didn’t cry! I actually started laughing, smiling, and having a good time with it! The group next to me noticed it right away and told me across the bridal shop! My mom and Future Mother-In-Law both cried, it was cute! 🙂

    I DEFINITELY cried! So did my Maid/Matron of Honor, my mom, and my stepmom haha. Actually, I was trying not to cry, and when I walked out of the dressing room my Maid/Matron of Honor started crying, which pushed me over the edge and made me cry! :]

    I did not expect to cry, but I got slightly teary/emotional when paying the deposit (lol). It wasn’t because of the $, since my mom bought my dress. I was just so relieved for dress shopping to be over and to have found a dress that I loved. 

    What is everyone talking about with ringing a bell? I’m confused and feel like I’m missing something, but it’s definitely been a long day!

    I didn’t cry. I thought I was going to cry my eyes out after watching all those episodes of “Say Yes to the Dress” but after going out and shopping I realized how little the dress meant to in comparison with marrying my best friend. I was really happy though especially because I got such a good deal!
