After watching so many hours of say yes to the dress I always imagined that finding my dress would make me feel as if this was all real, I mean really feel like a bride. When it didn’t I was disappointed, everyone kept asking if I cried or was super excited after finding it and even though I had been happy I hadn’t been omg I’m a bride happy. Don’t get me wrong I love the dress, I was ready to get into a boxing ring with my mother if she didn’t like it when I put it on.(luckily she loved it and had to hold back tears when she saw me in it) I put it out of my mind and assumed that maybe I just wasn’t the type of girl that cried or got all emotional over these things. I was wrong. For months I’ve been searching for just the right pair of shoes and today I found them and I teared up in the store. They are the perfect color (rose gold glitter/sequin to match my ring) perfect size, perfect height…you get where I am going with this right? I have never been so happy during this entire process, I even bought a pretty box to store them in until the wedding. So to all the other ladies out there that maybe were expecting the moment they found the dress to be magic and it wasn’t never fear may be you are a shoe lady like me or a jewelry lady maybe the moment you get your garter will be magical!

Awww awesome story! I’m glad you got to have your “bridal moment” even if it was with your shoes! I love my dress too, but I’m not one to cry easily. I didn’t let that sway me either way. I’ll let you know if I tear up with the shoes or the purse though =)

shoes are way more important to me than the dress. In fact, i’m willing to dish out a very large sum of money for my shoes if it comes to it…I may or may not have my heart set on some blue Louboutin’s…

Congrast! They sound awesome. Post a pic 🙂 When I found my shoes I was superly more excited then when I found my dress too. Funny how those things work.

I have always had a thing about shoes; at 4/5, I was dressing up in my mum’s heels, at 10 I bought my first pair of high heels, and at 15, I bought my first pair of Jimmy Choos (!).
When I started to seriously think about getting married, I thought about the shoes, not the dress. I saw a pair of designer heels about 4 years ago, and said they would be my wedding shoes, no matter what.
My first wedding purchase were those shoes lol: a pair of beautiful Ginas. I also bought a pair of Jimmy Choos at the same time. The dress came after.
I didn’t cry over any of my purchases; that isn’t me. However, had I not been able to get those Ginas, I’d have been distraught; whereas I’m sure I’d have found a dress I loved easily. I love both my dress and shoes; but my shoes excite me more, as shoes always have. Plus, I can wear the shoes again and again after, for many years to come; not so for the dress!

Coool!!! I hope that happens for me! I love my dress, and it was the one for sure, but it wasn’t like I then envisioned myself as a bride or anything. I was hoping maybe my hair trial or something would help. Glad to hear that special moment doesn’t always have to come from the dress. Thanks for sharing!

As much as I love fashion, I love shoes even more. My dress is for me, but it’s also for my FH and for everyone else to ogle. My shoes…they’re all for me and I know that’s what will give me my ~moment~
And I second the request for photos! 🙂
