Am I not meant to love wedding dresses?

I am not sure if it’s just me and I’m the only female on the planet that actually does not like the majority of wedding dresses. I do not experience that wild excited feeling when I Google image them or look on wedding websites. I’ve never been a person who has dreamed of what wedding dress I would wear. I also really don’t like clothes shopping at all so maybe it stems from there!! When I see something I do like, I buy it immediately as I know what I do like but this is rare. Just like I confidently designed my engagement ring in 20 minutes flat which I feel was rather impressive.  I think I dislike 90% of the wedding dresses I’ve looked at and the other 10%, well I just like specific parts on them… Is it only me?

I’ve only been engaged for a month so it’s early days but I think it’s a normal thing to do and consider what dress I would like to have. God only knows what I’ll rock up in but I don’t think it’s going to be something typical or traditional. Did/does anyone else have this situation? Ladies, gentlemen? Enlighten me!
