How will I know when I've found "the dress"?

I'm not really a girly girl so it's hard for me to imagine finding THE wedding dress that everyone seems to talk about. Does this happen for everyone? And how will I know? I'm scared I'll choose something out of necessity and not because I honestly love it. I don't wear dresses much.

How much would it cost to add a piece of fabric to a wedding dress?

Its on the leg. There is a split that is a little too high on the leg. I want to add a piece of fabric or sew the split so it's not so open.
