I’m starting to feel frustrated by the hype over “the one dress”.
Been having some trouble dress shopping. I was talking to my sister yesterday. And I have two dresses I really like at one place. But she says that if I didn’t know they were the dress when I tried them on that they’re not the dress.
Now I’m a little anxious if I find a dress I really like I’ll be convinced not to get it if I don’t hear bells and angels singing to me about it being “the one”.
I hate shopping and have never looked forward to looking for a wedding dress, so I think that’s part of it. I feel like I’ll find a few dresses that I like a lot and that look good on me and I’ll just pick one of those dresses that I like the most.
Nevermind the fact that I’m getting a little short on time now with being 7 1/2 months out from the wedding. Honestly, I’d really like to find something in the next 2 weeks, as awful as that sounds.

I loved my dress, but I didn’t get a magical tingle through my entire body when I picked it, as so many wedding enthusiasts would love for you to expect when you find “the one.” 😉 Don’t put so much pressure on yourself, and remember that while of course it’s important, it’s just a dress!

I would have agreed it was BS until I went dress shopping. I’m not necessarily overly emotional and like that. When I first put on the dress I got, I really liked it. Like I liked a few o the dresses> But when I tried it on again with all the fixings…I looked at myself in the mirror and without warning busted out crying. Like I couldn’t make it stop, had no sense it was coming. Nothing. I knew it was the one. Gosh, that sounds so dumb I’m making myself sick…but alas…it’s true.

Agree with PP! I didn’t get “the feeling”. We narrowed down the choices and realized that I kept comparing all dresses to one dress, so that was that.;

@MrsConnick: agreed. And my mom cried when I tried on the ‘one’. I think I might buy it in a month.
