That’s ok…I didn’t get the “this is it” thing either. Maybe I don’t have an emotional attachment to the dress?

Oh I totally know the feeling.  Can you take a break for a couple of weeks?  Don’t look at mags or blogs and then go back fresh?? 

I am a two dress bride and was only ho-hum about the first one but just found one that I LOVE-LOVE on Saturday — exactly one month until our wedding.  I really want to tell you not to settle for anything you don’t love on you.

I agree with you taking a break for a while.

I tried on over 100 dresses before I finally found the one that I loved.  As a petite bride, it is a bit harder to find dresses that won’t overwhelm your figure.  Vera Wang worked well for my petite friends – is there any chance she is having a sample sale near you?  One of my friends got a very affordable sample, and it looked perfect on her.  Just keep looking and eventually you will find it!

I’m not sure if i found ‘THE dress’ either, but when i had gone on my first (and only) dress shopping trip, the one i purchased i thought was beautiful and looked lovely.. my Maid/Matron of Honor loved it and thought it was beautiful, so i though ok, maybe this is it.. i didnt break down into tears or anything like that, so sometimes i wonder if i did find ‘the one’.. or maybe theres something wrong with me??

I never had “the feeling” either. I found one I like, looked good on me and had a good price and I bought it. I’m happy with my decision. I am just not the kind of girl to get mushy over a dress.

As for the Diamante, I don’t think it will be overwhelming.

Christos dresses look great on petite brides if it’s in your budget. I can believe that Vera Wang would too. I think the Diamante wouldn’t be overwhelming at all, but wait until you find one you’ll be confident in. I didn’t feel emotional, just thought I looked great in my dress.

diamante should look just fine on you… pretty dress

just take a break for right now, then go back to the store and try the same dress one more time and see what your thoughts are…

I love my dress! i didnt cry when i put it on the first time.. it was not emotional moment at all…but i was really happy with that… so not necessarily crying for the dress means that that one is the ONE!

good luck!
