Congrats on finding your dress!!!

I had the same shopping plan thinking I wanted something a-line with a statement back and straps to hold up my ladies. And I tried many on and liked all of them. But I remembered reading that every bride should try on different styles bc…you just never know. So I tried on a strapless trumpet and I was floored. I didn’t cry, but I did have the silliest grin on my face and felt like jumping up and down, and that’s when I knew I had found my dress.

Ahahaha- yes. I cried to a dress that was second best because I was SO RELIEVED that I found something that I actually liked.


The dress that I chose- I beamed πŸ˜€

I just went dress shopping for the first time on Sunday, it was a spur of the moment thing with just my mom, and we weren’t seriously shopping. I don’t really like veils (I dunno, not my style I guess) and so I put one on at my mother’s insistance but it was kind of a forced thing. However, the first dress I tried on made me just feel really good, kind of like putting on a second skin. I tried it on a second time as the very last dress I tried on, and it just kept growing on me. I feel happy and at ease in it, and kind of awe-struck every time I catch myself in the mirror wearing it, and I think I would rather that than a dress I start bawling in πŸ™‚

Pretty sure I’m going to buy it by the end of this week, so crying doesn’t seem to be my ‘sign’.

No, but I didn’t cry over any dresses. I smiled when I found “the one.”

@waterbaby:  My dress didn’t make me cry, it made me stupid giddy happy.  I almost cried when they put on the veil – made me feel like a bride, but the dress makes me want to bounce around, jump up and down, and dance – not cry tears of joy.

I agree with the sales ladies (whomever they maybe)…why would you want to hide that beautiful figure. My BF asked me the other day will I have a tight fitting gown I said hell yes!!!

Congrats to for finding the dress of your dreams!!!!

@waterbaby:  You look absolutely stunning in that dress. Beautiful choice!

When I put my dress on and walked out I just knew. It was the dress that made me smile and the dress that made me tear up.

It sounds like you got the perfect one for you πŸ™‚

My Future Mother-In-Law cried and my best friend cried…I however, only smiled.  I’m not an overly emotional person, so I’m not stunned at my lack of tears.  But my dress made me feel sexy.

I always thought I would want a ballgown and to feel like a princess, I never envisioned myself in a mermaid type gown, but I love it and love the way it makes me feel.

@waterbaby:  So beautiful! I’m in a similar position and I’ve actually been in love with Casablanca 2091 for a while now too, but concerned about how I’ll feel when I finally get a chance to try it on. Do you have pictures of that one as well?
