    have you tried on similar styles? If you know you love that shape and that’s the shape you want, you shoud try your dream dress on! You won’t stop thinking about it if you dont!

    If you order it from the store and end up not liking it, can the store order the Maggie Sottero and put the $ towards that one, instead of the Paloma?

    If you have the store that’s 2.5 hours away order the Wtoo it sounds like you would have to purchase it from them-or the Paloma Blanca that day?  Is that right?  

    What’s the situation with getting the $800 Wtoo? <br />Are you buying from a reputable seller?  A previous bride? Is it a sample? Has it been worn? Dirty/torn? I don’t know about how it would be to have it fitted for you, but usually one size different (especially taken in) is usually no big deal.  

    The Emma is so different from the other 2 gowns, what is the appeal of that one?

    Mrs.Z.:  It looks like the bust of the Paloma gives a lot more support than the photo of the woman in the Wtoo.  I know it’s your dream dress, but I think if you don’t like the look of her photo (not knowing her size) I don’t know that I could order the Wtoo without trying it on. Of the 2, Paloma or Emma which do you like best?

    Hard to say if Wtoo has small cups or that bride was trying in a smaller size. If the used one is a few sizes too big, you would have room in the cups and extra material, right? I would ask the person who will do your alterations of they can make that type of cup work for you. Yo could always sew in a bit of lace or tulle on edge of the top of the cups for more modest coverage.

    I’m not sure what you should do, but if it were me, I’d order that used dream gown and make it work:-)

    That lace dress is really pretty, but the other ones are as well, and I think the additional volume in the skirt on those would balance with your awesome ladies up top.
