@MissJay: i would absolutely not give up…. thats just my opinion….if i HADN’T found the dress in ANY store then thats a different story….BUT you have found someone who has it and i can’t live wondering whether or not it was the dress of my dreams….i would rather travel the 6 hours to find out whether or not i love it, than always wonder “what if”…..

Never give up. It’s YOUR dress. It’s YOUR dream. And nobody should ever tell you to give up on a dream. The world is built on them.

I wouldn’t give it up.  I’m sorry your mom doesn’t want to drive with you, but maybe your MOH or a BM would want to make the trip.  It may not be your dream dress once you try it on, but until you do that, you will always wonder about it.

I would always wonder if I would have liked it if I didnt go, but 6 hours is a pretty long trip.  Did you try dresses on in a similar style of the one you love and like those too?  I found that the ones I thought I would love, I actually didnt like one bit once I put it on.  (I’ve only gone to the running of the brides)  I’m so off with what i think i’ll like vs what I like, that I just stopped oggling over dresses to try on and am perfectly happy with the one I bought there that I loved – even though I was totally eyeing some Maggies that I think I may love too.

Don’t give up on it! I would totally make the trip and try it on! Even if you don’t like it, at least you will know, instead of always wondering if you made the wrong choice.

@MissJay:

If you can find one with a similar overall style, I would try that on first, just to see how the style/fit is on you. Then if you really like the style on, you may want to make the trip??  Good luck.

Uh, I don’t think I’ll be any help at all when I say that I love love love the second dress.  But, I can’t see myself driving 6 hours to try it on. 

Ok, now that I’m thinking about my experience… maybe you should try it on.  First, did you buy the other dress already?  And if so, can you return it?  Here’s the thing, I flip flopped between dresses a lot.  I ended up spending more money than I needed to and didn’t ever have that, “I love my dress, can’t wait to wear it!” feeling.  So if I could go back, I’d do everything I needed to do to make sure I had the RIGHT dress.  6 hours is rough, but so is not being sure that you have the perfect dress for your wedding day.  Did I make things harder?  I do that sometimes :o/
