(Closed) Feelings when you tried on your first wedding dress? [pictures included]

    Tears, tears and more tears.

    Felt alright; more like a chore than fun.

    I only felt something when I tried on "the one".

    It was fun, but there were no feelings involved.

    For me, trying on the first dresses was very surreal. I couldn’t believe that i was wearing these gorgeous dresses to eventually wear one to marry the love of my life. None of the dresses really made me emotional. None of them made me go holy crap I need to wear this for hours. And I guess I thought I would have that wow I love this dress moment. And I think a big part of it is that I so desparately wanted my FH there to give his opinion. I value it so much that making such a major decision without him is freaking me out.

    And by the way OP, you look gorgeous in each of those dresses.

    OP you look great. i love the last dress. i cant weigh in yet, but wanted to let you know that i am planning on shopping soon and we aren’t getting married til may 2014. i think i want my dress to dictate other details of the wedding instead of letting the theme limit styles i try on, so i want to pick my dress early! πŸ™‚

    I am gettin married next May, and my dress is already purchased. Found it on my first shopping trip too!

    My mom and I went to my appointment together, and it was very special for us to share that. But I never had any overwhelming emotions about the dress-buying itself other than general “I look pretty” feelings. That didn’t make it any less amazing though πŸ™‚

    Overwhelmed. I wanted to throw up or cry. Seriously I just wanted to rip it off. But the second dress appointment was much better. haha
