Julieferrero:  A few questions.

1) is the size 10 sample the more expensive one out of the 2?

2) are you sure you are a size 6 on the san patrick label?, you could be a larger or smaller size, and that changes your decision

3) can we see pictures of both dresses?

When I was ordering my dress I asked about what happened if I lost weight, and they said that generally a dress can be dropped 4-6 sizes before it becomes a problem. So the size 10 will probably be fine, but the 12 is borderline. How did it feel when you tried it on? You might be able to get an idea yourself, like do the cups in the trumpet dress seem way oversized etc? If it looks good once it’s clipped at the back maybe it would be okay.

Julieferrero: re: difference in price — are they the same or different fabric? Fabric (natural vs. synthetic) can change the price by a few hundred $

Julieferrero:  same style and same collection does not always equal same fabric. Some designers make a style from a collection available in different fabrics to help out more budget sensitive brides while still appealing to brides who prefer full silks. 

It’s worth double checking. Otherwise, it’s just each shop’s markup.

Julieferrero:  ok that is good to now. I would consult a seamstress first, the size 12 may cost more then $200 to take in. As for the pictures, I am usually one for a slimmer fit, but WOW I LOVE THE pronovias!!!! That dress is amazing!
