    I wouldn’t buy a dress online before trying it on. I learned my lesson. And it won’t be easy trying to sell a dress like that.

    For $200 I would buy it now. Is it final sale or is it still eligible for return if you get it and don’t like it on?

    I would try it on. What if you don’t love it on your body?

    @Tarheelgurl:  I would go ahead and buy it, especially if it’s not final sale. What do you have to lose besides shipping?

    I would wait. I thought I knew what dress I wanted, but when I put it on my body, I ended up not being as in love with it as I thought. Plus, when the wedding is 2 years away, that’s plenty of time to save an extra $300.

    DB has dress sales ALL THE TIME. It seems like everytime I go in there they’re having a huge sale. So the chances of it being on sale again are good

    Can you make a fun day trip out of it with a/some girlfriend(s)? You could talk wedding stuff in the car, go try on the dress, maybe even have her/them try on BM dress(es) for fun and to see what style you like, have some grub at a nice restaurant, drive back? Overnight trip? 

    I bought my specific dress without trying it on because it’s custom made with a serious alteration (strapless to vneck), but I made sure to try on dresses that were as similar as possible first. If you can’t make it to DB, definitely find similar shaped dresses with the same kind of material/look. Good luck!

    If it is from David’s Bridal than I would buy it. You can try it on and then you have 30 days to return it. My future SIL did this. She got a dress she loved and then once it came in she went to DB to try on other dresses to make sure it was the one she wanted. She ended up picking a different dress and returning the one she had bought.

    It’s really pretty!!! I’d buy it since you can’t make it to the store to try it on.  Maybe bring a pic of it with you to a local bridal shop and see if they have something similar.  Then snatch up the sale dress.

    I’d go try it on and if you love it buy it! But like some of the others say don’t just jump to buy without seeing it, you may hate it after trying it on.. I know that happened to me with a few dresses.
