Hi ladies I have a question for all of you who have picked your dresses.  Before you picked the "one" how many did you try on?  Did you immediately know that it was your dress?  I am so confused. Before I tried on dresses I had the "type" I thought I wanted all figured out.   But now, I can't really decide between fit and flare and ball gown I kind of like both I get a different feel with each. I feel like a princess and I'm like awww I look like a princess then I try on the other and I'm like oh this is sexy!  Any advice? 

 

I have attached a couple pics. please excuse the pink bra and any lasing that's not completely tied.  Some where not in my size..

You look great in all of them! My dilemma was a little different as my 2 preferred styles where different from yours. In the end I went with the one that made me feel like a bride (as cliché as that sounds). The other 2 were gorgeous and surprisingly fit me amazingly, but they could have been just a gorgeous red carpet dress. Don't know if that helps you at all but it's a bit of what I went through :) happy dress shopping! !

I agree with Sarahyu... you look amazing in all of them. The second one is my favourite, but that could be because my dress looks similar lol! I also love the third more fitted one. I think if you chose any of them you would look gorgeous! I tried on about 60 dress before I decided on 'the one'. I was getting really discouraged because there were ones that I liked and that looked good, but I couldn't picture myself wearing any of them down the aisle. Finally I tried one on and I didn't even have it all the way on and I just knew it was the one. I felt so beautiful, sexy, and very bridal and the biggest thing was I could envision myself walking down the aisle and getting married in that dress! It was also the only dress that I didn't want to take off... I would have been happy to walk out of the store with the dress on lol! Have you felt like that in any of them? If not I'd say keep looking and you'll find one that you absolutely love and want to keep on forever!

I actually tried on about 25 or so dresses. My dress was somewhere in the teens, and I just kept going back to it. After putting it on, nothing compared to how I felt in that dress. It's completely different from what I thought I wanted and it was suggested by the attendant I had working with me that day. They know what they are doing! Haha

I like the front of 2 and 4 - but you have to choose what makes you feel great ! I tried on probably 100 dresses but I found "my dress" toward the beginning. I kept comparing all the other dresses in my head to "the one".  I didn't have a traditional "this is it...followed by waterworks" moment that I saw countless times on Say Yes to the Dress. Slightly disappointed with my own reaction, at first I kept on searching, but in the end I knew I felt amazing in my choice and it just so happens I am not a crier when it comes to dresses - who knew! (because I seriously have cried over many other details lol) Good luck, and you'll look beautiful in any of those choices !

Oh I forgot to mention...I CRIED. haha, and I'm usually not one to get emotional over a dress, but the moment I realized that was it...I definitely couldn't hold it.

 

And now...when I watch Say Yes to the Dress...I am a little baby, hahah!

Also I didn't want to try other dresses on once I knew, but I had another appointment so I went and tried them on but even though I tried on some gorgeous dresses afterwards, I still compared them to the one. I slept on it and woke up dreaming of myself walking down the aisle in that dress and then I knew forsure it was the one!

I probably tried on around 20-25 dresses on two different outtings. I found the dress on the second outting. I'm not really a crier, except for when I actually see weddings. But I started crying before I was even tied up. I felt silly, but I just knew it was my dress. It was a bit too small, but I could see exactly how it would fit, loved the bodice, had a simple a-line skirt. I just felt like a bride, and not a girl in a pretty dress.

 

like some other girls said, you'll eventually start comparing new dresses to a dress that stands out for you. Nothing will top it. And you'll know.
