Did you see stars when you found your dress? I didn't?

When I found my dress.. I didn't cry, I didn't jump for joy, I didn't shout "THIS IS THE ONE!" I was more like "Hmm.. this one looks good, I'll take it."

For the record, I tried on about 10 different styles of dresses, and this one by far looked the best on me. But I have always been told that time would stop and I would hear the angels sing and yada yada..

I also got a killer deal.($450) It was on clearance and it was the last day to order this specific dress before they discontinued the style. (or so I was told)

I jumped on the opportunity, and I feel that maybe I settled. Or I think I did because I didn't flip out when I found my dress.

how did you react when you got your dress?

    I loved the way I looked and felt in my dress- sexy. There was no jumping, no crying. Of course everyones reaction is different. And your dress is beautiful.

    I have a dress I bought because the price was right and yea... It looked good. Then I got the dress regret. Ended up buying another one that me and 2 of my BM's absolutely fell in love with. We almost started crying and I am NOT a crier. I have zero questions or regrets on my dress. If I could wear it every day I would LOL. BTW... Can't sell the 1st dress for sh*t. I dropped it down to $250 and no one wants it. Sadness...

    I fell in love with my dress while searching online! I spend weeks looking, & finally decided to go in & try it on-loved it. I didn't buy it, I waited and went shopping several more times. When it was all said & done, I knew that was my dress. I finally ordered it & Saks was to call me when it came in.

    WELL, my FH decided he wanted to look for a watch a week later at the Saks OFF Rack, and you will not believe my dress was there!!!! It was THE ONLY ONE & in my friggin' size! The dress is made in 3 colors & the there it was in the color I ordered! I died. I must share that the dress was 75% less than the exact dress I had ordered from Saks! There is a small tear along the seam that is being repaired during alterations.

    I still can't believe I got that dress for the price I paid! Unreal! Don't laugh, but I do feel like my dress was meant to be lol.

    I didn't cry until my mom started crying. I loved the dress instantly even when others were second guessing it, I was like nope this one this one right here haha.

    I didn't get emotional either. I was tired of shopping, so I went with the dress that was the right price, and I felt confident wearing. I felt attractive, and I felt like me, whereas most other dresses made me feel like an over dressed barbie doll. Im happy with my dress, and though in a way I regret that I didn't keep shopping to find 'that moment', the truth is there's probably no dress out there that would have brought me to tears. That's just not who I am. Don't worry if you had the 'right' reaction to finding your dress, there's no such thing. And your dress looks great I love that silhouette Smiley smile

    Nope, same reaction. I was basically like "this looks nice." I had another appointment at a different store that afternoon since I had all my bridesmaids in from out of state, so they put the dress aside for me for the day and after I left the second appointment I just called and ordered it haha.

    I basically had the same reaction. I had tried on several dresses and I was getting tired and frustrated. But the moment I realized I could wear a regular bra I knew it was my dress. I despise strapless bras. Plus it was on sale!!

    I thought I was going to have a crying moment as well. I knew my dress was the one because I did not want to take it off. Plus, when I went to a couple other boutiques and tried on about 15 more gowns I could not stop thinking about my gown. I'll actually be posting the story about my dress on my blog thenaturallychicblog.blogspot.com.

    I didn't cry but I had this feeling that it was the one and I kept smiling but I wanted to try more dresses on so I didn't say yes the first time around. I tried on more dresses at other bridal shops but I went back to "the one" because no other dresses made me smile as much.

    I did not cry, but I came close. I went on black Friday after hours of shopping. I was tired and did not think I would find anything. Once I put it on though, I just knew. One of my girls who was with me said she could see the "shit just got real" look in my eyes.

    I didn't get emotional either. I kind of had a similar experience to you, and I ended up with dress regret. However, the dress I purchased was a lot more plain than the one you're in! I love that on you, it's so flattering.

    I ended up buying a second dress, and like Alexis, I can't sell the first one for anything. However, with my second dress I got emotional, but not tears.

    Love your dress! I didn't cry or anything. I feel like I'll cry on my last fitting when I see everything together. You'll have your bridal moment. Don't second guess it Smiley smile

    First of all, your dress is beautiful!!

    I definitely didn't have that moment I see in every wedding movie. No tears, no screaming, no jumping. I even started to second guess myself when I would watch Say Yes To The Dress. Thankfully, now I KNOW I'm in love with my dress Smiley smile

    I had tried on probably 10 dresses before I found the one I wanted. And I wasn't expecting to find a dress at all that day.. But when I walked up to the mirror in my dress I bursted into tears. I could see myself at my wedding in that dress. Then my mom started crying and my maid of honor and it was a boo hoo fest.... But oh well, I tend to be dramatic Smiley winking

    You look amazing. I cried over a david bridal dress, but I think thats because I can't believe i am getting married and its wicked hard without my mom being here since her passing. But when I choose my dress I was wicked happy. Lots of smilies. I am also adding a lot, making it into a custom dress. At first I was going to be like "I don't want to spend a lot on my dress, its only one day blah blah blah" but then I said when I find it I find it. lol over 1k later lol.

    My issues is looking at other brides and being like " did I pick the right dress?" So i learned to stop looking at other brides online and know I look nothing like them. Lol

    I didn't cry but a huge smile came on my face with my dress. It was more of a happy emotion, like yes, this makes sense.

    I didn't get very emotional about it. Maybe because it's not important to me. I tried on some, took pics. I was pretty sure what one I wanted but didn't make a decision then. I picked my top 3 and compared them all side by side. I went with the one that went best with what my wedding will be like and what felt like "me". Maybe I'm not super excited because it's more than what I wanted.

    I never understood why someone would get emotional picking a dress...
