Help please?! Is anyone else struggling to fine a wedding dress that is 'the one' I've tried on so many stunning dresses, how can I possibly choose 1? I'm not sure what style or colour to go for? Anyone else had this trouble? Thank you
Go for something you wouldn’t vision yourself in. Try on some dresses that you think won’t look very nice on you, you can guarantee their the ones that look amazing 😀
Second that. I tried on 4 dresses all in different styles n the ones I didn't like on are the ones I loved in the pictures and was so excited about trying them on. Talk about anticlimax. When I put mine on I just knew it the was one.
Keep searching and trying on all different styles.. you will KNOW when it's the one because there will be no other dress that makes you feel like a princess and you won't be indecisive.. it'll immediately hit you that you feel and look amazing and that IS the dress .. !! Just had similar myself a few weeks ago.. tried on many probably about 14 dresses then the second I slipped into the last dress I knew it was the one.. in fact when I saw it on the rail I knew it was the one.. good luck!
Try on all styles, I think I tried on 26 dresses really like 3 all very similar and was a little indecisive then the shop asked me to try something different and I it was like 😮 x that’s the dress x
I found one that was amazing back in march, i just tried it on at a show so wasn't looking to get yet. It was a size 20 and discontinued so I would of had to lose half the dress, and at that size it wouldn't of looked the same or fitted right after altering down to my size. I tried to find it other places but haven't be able to. Now I'm ready to by and trying others on, I keep comparing them to this other one and can't seem to find one I love that much
I had my last dress fitting yesterday and I love my dress more than I did when i first tried it on. You know it's the one when you try it on and don't want to take it off x
I only tried on 3 dresses before I found mine and listen to the sales girls they know exactly what suits your shape and size I would never have chosen the dress they picked it I didn't want anything to big or fussy
I think maybe you should take a break from looking for a month or so. Your head sounds like its desperate to find 'the one' but you have confused yourself by trying on so many dresses. Maybe go back to basics. Was there a style you liked and felt suited you? Was there a fabric you liked? Make yourself a list of what you did like then maybe go to a new boutique and say to them these are what I like/felt suited me and see what you think. Then maybe try a dress that's different in some way - illusion neckline/straps. I think sometimes we become bogged down in finding the one that we lose sense of what we want. Dress shopping becomes a chore. Take a step back. I was adamant I was wearing a strapless number then I tried on straps and realised it suited me better... two dresses later I found my dress ️ it wasn't a massively overwhelming emotional feeling but when I tried it on it made me smile and I felt really pretty. I would also suggest maybe going on your own as other people's opinions can really cloud your judgement. (I was in my own when I found mine)
I’ve been the 3 different shops and tried on loads! The last shop I found the one min can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day! I didn’t want to take it off xx
I am going through the exact same thing. I have tried on so many dresses as been looking since January and have really liked some but didnt feel I could commit to any as I didn’t get that feeling. I nearly brought one yesterday at the NEC wedding show which was beautiful but I don’t know if it was because I am starting to feel like I’m never going to find ‘the one’ that I just wanted to buy it to say I at least have a dress. I too was told to take a break for a bit as I’m just confusing myself with too many dresses so I did take a few months off and yesterday I tried on dresses that I would never have considered a few months back but still can’t seem to find my dress. I still have 11 months until my wedding but I am starting to feel like I might never decide on a dress at this rate. It’s annoying as well as none of my other friends that have recently got married seemed to have this problem
I was struggling to find 'the one' but I went to a wedding show recently and there was a catwalk show and there it was the dress of my dreams. When I went to the bridal shop it was from it turned out to be the most expensive in the shop but from the minute I saw it I was having it 😂😂😂 good luck in your search x
I agree with those who say to take a break and maybe go on your own. I did lots of searching on-line to get ideas so that I could take into account what would suit and what wouldn't to take pictures with me. However, I found my perfect dress at Debenhams.com so got sorted and was able to try it on in my own home.
I agree, take some time out from dress shopping then try again, maybe re-try a favourite selection?
I promise you will know when you try 'the one' on! Good luck 🍀
I started to feel the same i thought finding the one was a myth there were 3 dresses i really liked all different i had a chat to my mum as she can with me to all the different wedding shops and told me we hadnt found the one yet and not to worry but keep looking. Luckly the next shop we flund the one completely different again and i finally felt like i wasnt playing dress up anymore and could see myself getting married in the dress so bought it. I wouldnt worry too much the new season of dresses are coming out so one of them might be your one dont worry you will find it.
Any top tips Laura Bailey? :)
I struggled and then realised that I didn't want what I first wanted and maybe try something you wouldn't expect
Maybe the problem is you have tried on so many. Take a break, a few months, and try a new shop. I found mine after the 5th/6th dress. And you will just know when it is 'the one'! Good luck.
I think that the dress chooses you. For me I seen the dress I tried it on and didn't want to take it off
I tried my wedding dress on 4/5 times before I decided it was "the one". Figured if I tried it on that many times I must like it!
I agree with takeing a break..let urself forget about a few that u have tryed and after a while retry the dresses that stick in ur mind..I tryed on loads and found I had 2set my self a rule...once I tryed on a dress I put in into 2groups..the yes and no pile..I then had a second rule..when I really loved a dress I stoped looking..I think I wouldn't never have settled one just1dress if I didn't..I didn't buy the dress from the boutique though..I went online and found my dress in the style of the one I tryed on..I saved myself £1150 by doing this..good luck x
My dress came from jjshouse.co.uk they have such beautiful ones for such a cheep price.mine cost £160 including custom adjustments and postage.
I agree its difficult. It was the 3rd shop I went to and I ended up buying a dress because it was the end of the work day. 2 weeks later I showed my bridesmaids and there reaction werent what I wanted. Not only that but I started having doubts myself. I went back to the shop a few days later with my dress and tried some other styles on. I tried on a dress and I felt amazing. So beautiful I cant explain. The veil just was the final piece and I cried my eyes out. Thats when I knew I had found my dress. I now cant wait to put on my dress. I cant stop thinking about it. It was a style I thought I would never suit because of me being a plus size bride but it looks amazing You will find the one. Just maybe focus on something else first thats what I did.
I cried when I tried my dress on for the first time and that's when I knew it was "the one"! It's a long winded process but trust me, you will know
I am in the same boat, I went To WED2Be, to try the dress I’ve been adoring since I got engaged last year but when I had it on, it didn’t look right on me as it was so long , I am only 4”11 , all the dresses in the shop overwhelmed me. I’m still in the hunt to find the “Dream Wedding Dress” :-(( I might need a bespoke made for my height. Good luck .
Try some different to what you've already tried. Honestly the dress I have just brought is the complete opposite to anything I had imagined or tried on. I put it on to see what it looked like and as I turned into the mirror I just burst, it was most definitely my dress. But unless one of my bridesmaid had spotted it I would have walked straight past it x
You just haven't found the one yet. It does take time. Try on a dress that's totally different to what you imagined yourself in... that's how I found exactly what I wanted!
