I made the mistake of stumbling upon a final sale dress at David’s Bridal. A dress that’s only available online and cannot be returned or exchanged. If you don’t want this to happen to you, NEVER look at the Outlet section on their website 🙂
It’s style vw9900. My favorite dresses up until I saw it were Alfred Angelo’s Snow White and two David’s Bridal dresses wg3128 and wg9830. To me the 9900 combines elements that I love in all these dresses. Plus, it’s final sale so good price.
Although I think this may be the perfect dress and I am pretty confident in the size that I would order, it still scares me that I’m spending money on a wedding dress that I can’t return. I know that the possibility exists that I can try to sell if if it doesn’t work, but I just can’t make myself do it!!
I think I’m just hoping that someone here will just say — DO IT, ALREADY, YOU THINK IT COULD BE THE ONE!!!
What would you do?

if you love it and its cheap i say go for it. if you can’t alter it to look good for you, you can always resell it.

I will not buy a wedding dress that is not returnable! What if it is not the right size or it is ugly on me?I don’t want to spend thousands of dollors on such a thing! In that case I would go to some other on-line dress stores, as far as I know, most of such stores have complete return policy, when it is not the perfect dress, I just need to pay for the delivery fee for sending it back, that would be much reliable!

omg it looks a lot like my dress. I say go for it- you can probably sell it as a sample on recycledbride or something similar if you really do ABSOLUTELY hate it. One thing I will caution you on tho is that if you haven’t tried it on…I have the same style/waisted dress and mine is not the most flattering thing ever, it cuts my body oddly and even on the model shown on DB it gives her some extra hippage… but in the end I loved it and while the corset tops I tried on gave me better curves the shape of the one I had seemed more whimsical and special to me. Just an fyi =)

@BeachyKeenBride: I’m going to agree with @daniellealys:! It’s a beautiful dress, I love the flower detail at the waist! I might order a size up to make sure it will fit, since with alterations easier to make a dress smaller–but it depends on how close your measurements are to the size chart.

I would try to find a DB similar one to try on, then I would know the size and either order it new-or see if I could buy it pre-owned, if still unsure. There is another bee that has it, but I don’t know if either of you are the same size. Do a search on WB to possibly locate her?

Well, I ordered it! I will figure out a way to sell it if it isn’t the one. I don’t think the size will be a problem. Everything I’ve tried on has been a 10 at David’s Bridal and everything has been either slightly too big or the right size.
I WILL NOT buy anything else online if this is not the one, I will be off to DB to try on my two favorites there and will be ready to buy if this one doesn’t work out.

@BeachyKeenBride: Good luck!! I’m sure you found it for a reason, go with your gut is always good advice to follow.

I would say go to DB and try to find a similiar dress (just to try on). You can determine your size as well as get a good idea of what it will look like on you. This way you minimize risk. If all falls into place then buy it, at least you’ll have a better idea of what you’re getting!

if it’s one of those $99 dress, I say go for it!
edit: ok I just saw the price, it’s a tad risky, but if you think it’s everything you want and you’ve tried on dresses at DB before so you know your size, go for it! You can always resell it!

The dress came yesterday and it is PERFECT! It will need zero alterations, perfect length and everything.
I am so glad I followed my gut on this one — it is the one!!
