    Yeah I just knew it was the dress.  I was smiling from ear to ear and I just didn’t want to take the dress off.  My Maid/Matron of Honor was a little teary and I think that was the only confirmation I was looking for.

    I will admit though that there were several moments during the dress hunt when I thought I had found ‘the one.’  I knew it was finally “THE ONE” when I just didn’t want to try on anything else.

    I’m still waiting for THE ONE feeling!  I’ve tried on about 40-50 dresses, and I’ve gotten pretty excited about a couple of them, but still haven’t had the courage to commit to one!

    I tried on tons of dresses and found “The One” while looking through a bridal magazine.  It was so strange I saw the gown and just fell in love with it I went to the boutique and tried on other dresses that were beautiful.  Then I tried on “The One” it didn’t even fit but I didn’t care I couldn’t stop staring at it.  I never thought I would find the perfect dress but it happened.

     I found the perfect dress online , but when it arrived at my house it was less then prefect , the color and fit was all wrong, they tried to re make it but is was just as bad , I found a dress at running of the brides that was beautiful … but not "The One" it worked , I am happy with how things turned out . Hubby has said that maybe we can have it made for a renewal in a decade or so

    I definitely knew my dress was the one, but that was after pouring over dozens of bridal magazines and trying on tons of different dresses.  There were a few other dresses that I likes when trying them on, but the one I ultimately chose was just perfect.  My mom even burst out crying when I tried it on, which hadn’t happened with the others.

    I didn’t know at first…I think I was afraid to have that feeling about the first one! But I kept thinking about that one, and kept referring to it as ‘my dress’. Finally, I realized, it was the one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    i was so happy in my dress – it made me feel like dancing around the salon like a little girl! ๐Ÿ™‚

    but i didn’t think it was the one at first – i’d been raised on  traditional notions of wedding gowns (more ornate, etc) and was looking for something affordable. 

    my dress ended up being really simple and more expensive than i’d originally hoped for. but i like it so much that i’m trying to figure ways i’ll be able to wear it after my wedding (my friends think i’m nuts)

    I loved my dress, but I never got The One feeling.  I found a dress that I totally loved, but I never felt teary and emotional about it.

    I never got “the one” feeling either.  I panicked about it for weeks until I realized that other brides felt that way too.  Getting super-emotional about anything (esp. clothing) is not really in my personality though. 

    It also worked out that I was able to take the sample from the store and save major $$ on my gown.  It fits really well for my body type (I’m a size 6 but with a 34Dirty Delete chest) and I think the look is perfect for a summer/outdoor/country club wedding.  I hope my Fiance will love it too :o)

    Here’s my dress (this is the first time I’ve posted it here!)

    i probably tried on abput 30 dresses, liked most, hated a few but wasn’t in love with any. When I tried my dress on, I swear I had a flash and SAW myself walking down the aisle and i knew that was it….i tried on about 10 more but nothing compared…but it was hard until i found that one bc they are ALL beautifuk and i would’ve been very happy with about half of the other ones i tried on….but this one was on a whole nother level…good luck and keep searching until you find your dress!!

    I thought I had found the one haha…then a few weeks later found another one I loved, then stressed for a few weeks before deciding the second “one” was the best fit for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think my dress is the one, but it never brought tears to my eyes – I just couldn’t stop staring at it and didn’t want anything else. but, I’m sure there are other “the one” dresses out there for me – what matters is finding one that you are happy with that makes you want to stop looking!

    I adore my dress (just found it yesterday! Yessss!!) and felt so beautiful in it, but didn’t get that teary eyed THE ONE feeling. It’s just so comfortable and "swishy" (you know what I’m talking about) and I wanted to prance around the whole store with it on. It’s glorious.

    I think that feeling has to do with the personality of the bride rather than the dress. People who find THE DRESS are the same people who say they’re marrying THE ONE, haha!
