BUY IT! That dress is beyond stunning on you. She isn’t engaged, style preferences change, and it might not even be something that looks good on her.

Plus by the time she gets married I doubt people will remember that it looks similar to the one you wore.

Buy the dress of your dreams.  If you FSIL already had this dress, I would understand you not getting.  She’s not even engaged.  Repeat: She’s not even engaged.  Who knows if this dress will still be in production when she’s dress shopping, if she’ll even like it, if a lot of things.

You love it, you love it.  Don’t let anyone burst your bubble because you look gorgeous!

This is YOUR day, not your future SIL who may or not get married one day and may or may not wear this dress or one similar. Your reaction when you put this dress on told you everything you need to know about purchasing it. Dont let negative nancy steal your moment, your joy or your shine!

@Bdonohue:  Buy it!! It looks gorgeous on you!  That was wrong of her to put you in that position, and honestly, you’re the one getting married, not her.  You found that dress, you fell in love with it, it’s yours!! It looks like it was made for you!

@Bdonohue:  BUY IT! and BUY IT NOW! She is not even engaged yet! She is wrong for telling you that. there are so many dresses that she can wear. By the time she gets engaged, she might not even end up wearing that style dress cuz it may not work for her body type!

You look gorgeous!

Buy it.  You are right, you don’t know that she will even like it once she tries it on.  My “dream dress” was AWFUL on me, and I had to abandon that pretty quickly.  You need to get what you love!

@Bdonohue: Get it. Women who are not engaged, do not get to make you feel bad about buying a dress that YOU love, because it looks like their vision. My ‘vision’ dress is NOTHING like the one I ended up buying.

You look stunning in that dress. Seriously, forget her reaction and just go with it!

Buy it! Don’t let someone who isn’t even engaged guilt trip you out of your dream dress.

@Bdonohue:  Get it, chances are by the time she gets married the dress “she’s always wanted to wear” will be something different. I went shopping with FSIL last year and she bought a dress that was exactly what I thought I wanted (but I kept my mouth shut and wasn’t bitter) well flash forward to a few months ago when I realized my dream dress was completely different.
