When I went to try on dresses I had NO CLUE that I would find my dream dress. Every dress I put on I loved but when I put on my Nora, a warm feeling took over me. I didnt cry but just knew that was the one.

You will look beautiful on your day and your Fiance will think u are the most beautiful woman ever when you walk down that aisle. You will have your moment!

I never had that moment.  I have a decent figure so a lot of dresses looked fairly well on me.  But nothing stuck.  I felt like I kept seeing the same styles over and over (ruching, sweetheart, beaded belt, etc).  When I found my dress I chose it because it was more different than anything else I put on.  Some girls dont have that feeling, if it doesnt happen dont get too sad, we always end up with what were supposed to.

to be honest… i didn’t have that feeling with my dress until mine arrived and it was in my size.

when i tried on the sample, it looked horrible and nothing was where it was supposed to be. Fiance insisted that it would be beautiful on me and he could see it in his head. I trusted him and we ordered it.

After I tried it on in my size, I fell in love. I never felt so beautiful before. I’m still in love with it.

I didn’t get that feeling, didn’t cry etc. Choosing my dress was simple and practical for me. I stared at the model pic & any real life pics I could find online for months. I called around & found it locally, tried only that one on & ordered it a week later. Easy peazy & completely unemotional. My mom however gushed & almost cried 🙂

I had the moment when Mom and Maid/Matron of Honor cried. I knew it was the dress when I tried it on the first time, but didn’t cry. The second time I tried it on and saw those 2 cry I knew it was it. I had no idea of what I wanted, and to get that reaction really helpe me make the decision. I love my dress, can’t wait to get it!!

No, it doesn’t exist for all brides.  Like rosworms, I wasn’t 100% sure about my dress until it arrived in my size, even though I was a sample size (the sample was in pretty bad shape).  I still didn’t have that overwhelming emotion, but I was happy and glowy, and finally knew I had the right dress.

I didn’t have a “Wow” moment per se, and there were definitely no tears (and I cry easily). I had the blessing to fit perfectly in the sample size, and I knew it was the right dress when I looked in the mirror. No dramatic realization, just a quiet knowing.

I was very certain that the dress I chose was “it” but I didn’t cry or have a moment or anything.  It had all the elements I was looking for, I looked and felt fabulous in it, and the price was right.  (My mom cried though.)  I love love love my dress and every time I put it on I feel beautiful, but you definitely don’t need to have a “bride moment” to know you made the right choice!

I was with only my sister, and she was the one who was crying.  So I said “Ok, this will work.”  I am blessed to not care about the dress as much as other brides might.  As long as I look OK, it doesn’t need to be “perfect”.  I thought I would have some “Say Yes to the Dress” crying, but I was too busy looking at the price tag (YOWZA!).
