Meh, no tears. It was a practical purchase for me. Darn good price, looked good, classic, white, done. Plunked down my card and walked away knowing that even if i found something *that* much more awesome, it probably would have cost me a heckuva lot more. In the end, it’s a dress, right? I second guessed myself a little bit, but reminded myself that it was a dress and it looked good! And i told myself to just leave it be =]

Some people never get the feeling, some do but don’t cry. That was me.  You don’t have to cry about your dress.  I think its perfectly natural to just really like your dress

4 shops, 7 hours, a bunch of dresses. I did NOT cry when I found the one I bought. In fact, it wasn’t even the dress I liked best, but as soon as I saw myself in the photos I knew it was the one. And now I absolutey love it!

At the end of the day the most important thing is that you feel good in the dress you got. When you are walking down the aisle towards your husband-to-be the dress will be the last thing on your mind 🙂

I liked a bunch of dresses, but I knew the right dress when I put it on. The others were lovely and I felt pretty in them, but it was like an actress trying on costumes. All were fine, appropriate, great, even, but not *me*. When I found my dress, I felt bridal for the first time, not just like a girl in a pretty (very pretty) white dress.

I only tried on dresses on two separate occasions within 3 days of each other- both sample sales. I didn’t cry but was glad to find a beautiful dress that was within my budget. I would reccommend what it seems like you’re already doing- quit looking at dresses and shows that make you second guess. You’ve got it already, stick to it and you’ll be lovely.

I’ve only been to one store and it was one of the first dresses I tried on. I really liked it – even though I never pictured my dress (I’m more of a cake-dreamer) when I tried this on, it’s how I must have subconsciously pictured myself as a bride. I didn’t cry. I’ve actually never heard of anyone crying when they found their dress – maybe a few tears shed by a mother or a sister, and I think that has more to do with them thinking ahead to you getting married than a dress.

You know, I think you should consider yourself a lucky gal to have found something you like, in your budget, that doesn’t cost another small fortune in adjustments. Don’t drive yourself mad lusting after other dresses. Go with your gut. It’s right. Otherwise you’ll end up in the loony bin! xo

I bought the first dress I tried on. And I love it. I didn’t cry or have butterflies. It just felt like “my dress”. And I still love it. I can’t wait to wear it next weekend!

I went to two dress shops. In the first one I found the one….I didnt cry but I wanted to wait at least 6 months before the wedding before I pu the order. Then I went to the second store and saw a dress that I really liked for $300. Its not the one, but looks very nice on me and I saved $700…sometimes its best to be practical.
