I made a post a while ago (“Which Disney Dress?) that had pictures of me in Alfred Angelo Dresses: Cinderella 205 and Jasmine 215. I feel like I like the Cinderella one more now, but I still have 11 months until my wedding and I am afraid of committing too soon. I went to try on more dresses again, at a different shop this time. My mom and sister really think I should get the Cinderella 205 by Alfred Angelo, but I am afraid to make a descision, especially one that is so important to me.
The owner of the shop told me that the dress will be discontinued in a couple of months. I don’t know if this is true or if she is just trying to scare me to get me to buy the dress. I wouldn’t think they would discontinue the Disney line, has anyone else heard about this? I thought this dress was fairly popular so I don’t understand why they would. I would love to hear about it in the comments.
Anyway, I tried on the dress again, and a few others. I like the look of it with the black sash.
As a reminder this is the first picture I posted of me in this dress:

I would order it now, you are only 11 months out! They need time to order it and get it in, which could take a couple of months at least, and then need alterations which could take ages. That dress looks amazing on you 🙂

I unsure if they are discontinuing (the new 2014 line is coming out with a new cinderelka dress so it is possible), but as jaqui90 said, its probably best to order noW for alterations etc.

I love the Cinderella dress too! 11 months is early, but rather early with your dress than late. Just make sure to stop looking at dresses once you commit 🙂

I really like this dress, but I really felt that the AA dresses were not great quality for the price. I know I have seen and tried similar dresses elsewhere. You may be able to get a better quality dress for the money.

I would order it now. I wore that dress for my wedding over a year ago, I’m surprised it hasn’t been discontinued.
That said, you look INCREDIBLE in that dress. GORGEOUS!

I ordered my dress at 15 months out, 11 is fine! If it’s your dress, it’s your dress.

@dazzlepop: Get it! I’m a September 2014 bride, and I ordered my dress yesterday. Definitely not too early to make the decision. Plus, it looks great and you look super happy wearing it.

I made the mistake of thinking that the shop was trying to scare me into buying that day by telling me it may be discontinued soon. Long story short, I lost out on my dream dress even though I called 1 month after trying it on to order it. You look stunning in the dress and if you keep comparing other dresses to it, I would just order it! I’m 11 months out too and I ordered my new dress last month. I’d rather have it sooner so I can be super picky about alterations

@ersa0501: Oh no! I’m sorry! I hope you love your new dress too though. I just wasn’t sure whether I should take her seriously because she was kind of being pushy for a sale. Maybe she isn’t though if that happened to you.
@Lyndzo: Thank you so much! This is the second time you have said I look great in the dress! 🙂 My mom and my sister love it too but my best friend keeps saying that I don’t look as good in the ballgown style dresses than the other fit and flare dresses I was trying on so I was worried because I want to look my best! I just need to take a step back and tell myself that I am the one who needs to love the dress and how I look in it, not them.
I wish there were a like button on this website so I could just go through and like people’s comments! You all have good points. 🙂

I don’t believe it is being discontinued because you can still find it on their website. I would call an Alfred Angelo store directly to be sure though.

The sash makes it amazing! I love it. 11 months isn’t too early to order your dress. They take a minimum of 5 months usually to come in. When you order it from the store you can ask them not to have it delivered until a certain time. I picked mine in May and asked that it not be delivered to the store until the end of December/beginning of January and they had no problem with it.

This dress isn’t being discontinued, I ordered this dress a few months ago. : ) Just incase anybody else stumbles upon this post and is wondering too.

dazzlepop: FYI, I just ordered this dress 3 weeks ago so the shop assisstant lied to you.
