There is this huge misconception that there is SUPPOSE to be or HAS to be some big emotional display when choosing a wedding dress and it's just not true for everyone. I see brides begin to question their decision because someone else thinks (and says) there has to be tears involved. For some people that is the case and that is perfectly fine, that's why we keep the tissue box close at hand. But for those of you who are not prone to emotional display it is also perfectly acceptable that you DON'T cry when you choose your dress. Don't let someone else tell you how you need to feel or how you should behave. Only about 10% of our brides are actually brought to tears when they find "the one", another 30% dance and giggle, and the other 60% just can't get enough mirror time. The world is made up with people of all different personalities and we all handle each situation differently. Some people choose things based solely on the emotion of how it makes them feel while others are more methodical about their selections. Neither way is wrong they're just different, and that's OK!
Please! Do not let someone else talk you out of saying yes to your dress because they say you are suppose to cry, jump up and down, faint, cut cartwheels or any number of other silly notions that people sometimes have. You will know when you have found your dress and no one else. Except maybe your bridal consultant because we have become pretty good knowing ;)
