I never got the “this is THE one” feeling. I love how I look in my dress and it fits my plus-sized body well, but I didn’t cry or any of that. I think it just depends on your personality. I just went for something that makes me look good, is my style and was in my budget.

I was between two dresses, and I honestly sort of got “the feeling” when the bridal consultant put a veil and tiara on me and I looked at my mom.  It was only when my mom started to tear up that I thought, “Yep, this is it.”  Then tears ensued.

I didn’t cry when I tried it on.  I just liked the way it looked and it had features on it that made me feel good about myself and features I had really liked but didn’t think I’d find on a wedding dress.  I had always liked the look of a sash or belt on the hips instead of the waist like you always find on wedding dresses.  I never thought I’d find a belt on the hips but low and behold I did.  I knew I’d never find another dress like that within my budget and without traveling out state.  I had also picked out 2 other dresses I liked.

I came back to the salon with my Maid/Matron of Honor to have her help me pick one out of the 3 but I kept thinking about that dress with the rhinestones on the bust and hips (no where else on the dress) and when I tried it on for the second time with my Maid/Matron of Honor, both her and I as well as the associate helping me knew it was the one.  They said my face just changed when I put on the dress.  I wasn’t crying and I didn’t have a stupid grin on my face but they both said my eyes sort of twinkled and my face had a glow to it.

Sometimes the signs that its “the one” are more suble that just an immediate feeling.  Just like some people know their Fiance is “the one” the moment they meet him and others know much later in the relationship.

I ended up buying the first dress I tried on but only after trying on about 15 more.  I didn’t know instantly, didn’t cry, nor did my mom or maid of honor cry but I felt like it was the right dress for me after I had tried on several others but kept comparing everything back to that first dress.

I look at it this way, if I spent 10, 20, or 100 more hours trying on dresses, could I possibly find something I like more?  Sure!  But you know what, that’s just not me or what I care to do so when I found one I really liked and felt beautiful in, I went with it.
