The Dress.....

I finally made a decision today, tried it, swished it, bought it! Did anyone else not have the 'oh my god it's the one' but have a, this is lovely, I feel lovely and it just feels like me?! I felt sick parting with that sort of money, I had a proper paddy as I have to pay extra as I'm 'over size', took an hour in a pub over lunch to decide 'just bloody buy it' after a text from my fianc??, saying we only do this once just get it!!! How did you feel after you'd decided? I feel a bit deflated that the search (albeit a short one!) is over!!

    what did you get?

    when i tried my dress on last i didn't think this is it i just didn't want to take it off and it makes me feel good. its probably just our version of 'its the one'.
  • I was the same, neither me or my mum cried or anything like that, I just felt really happy and didn't want to take it off image I swished and clapped my hands a bit in the shop because I felt lovely in it and like myself as well as a bride which was really important for me as I'd felt a bit stiff in the others, like I couldn't move freely, but in my dress I was twirling and swishing around the shop, hehe.

    Like nats said, think it's just our version of 'oh yes, this is the one!' image

    Oh good! My words to the girl were, ooo I could swish about in this all day.

    So that must definitely be 'our version' I'm glad it's not an earth moving moment for everyone!

    Chloe that's how I felt, and that I could have gone on trying them on forever, but I felt happy and could imagine myself at the venue and in church in it - ie. I didn't feel like I was playing dress up!!

    Nats ill pm you - so paranoid OH will find out!!

    I didnt cry/cream/squeal etc either! But i did feel that it was the one even before i properly had it on! Drove home with a massive grin on my face after image

    I did have a slight wobble but went back to the shop to try it on again and got some half decent pics, and feel 100% now!

    Glad you have found your one!

    I never had the "this is the one" feeling either - but it did make my Mum cry!  I loved it so decided to part with a hell of a lot of money!  I only went to 3 dress shops, all on the same day and bought my dress in the last shop we went in.

    Although I have to say when I got the call to go and try my dress on when it arrived I had to wait a month, the day came and I moved my appointment because I was so nervous, I tried it on and then I cried!
