I loved that dress when I saw it online but it looks even more amazing on you.  If it will not cause real issues from overspending I would say yes – you look ethereal and exquisite.

That dress is so unique and there are not other options less expensive that you can buy to replicate the look.

It’s beautiful! I love the texture of the feathers, subtle but unique. It’s not POW FEATHERS, you know? The belt gives it just the right amount of sparkle and the bottom fabric is so drapey and lovely. 

If you can fit it in your budget, I say go for it!

I’m going to try the Primor dress on tomorrow in Delaware.

Have you tried on the Bengasi?  It has the feathers on the top and a different skirt but the exact same silhouette.  I think it’s less expensive than the Primor… but not sure.

Here is a picture of me in the Bengasi at the Pronovias flagship store in NYC… I walked over in the rain… so PLEASE ignore my shiny face and awful hair!!!!

We covered the silver belt with the pronovias beaded pearl belt to drop the waist a tiny bit… so that is what you see around my waist.

Wow.  Like a PP, I am not usually interested in ballgowns, but this one is stunning.  I totally understand the budget issue, I’m not sure what to suggest on that except that maybe you could call around to stores that are having Pronovias trunk shows coming up.  You don’t need to be present to purchase the dress with a trunk show price and you can use those price quotes to negotiate with different stores.  That’s what I did and ended up using a trunk show price quote to negotiate over $300 off a gown that I loved in my local shop.  Just google “Pronovias trunk show” to find bridal shops with shows coming up.

WOW.  that dress is STUNNING!  So jealous that wasn’t around when I got married.  I would have worn that in a heartbeat!  The feathers are so perfectly structure on that bodice.  And the drapping of the skirt is flawless.

More importantly, you seem to have the attitutde to pull of this dramatic number.

If the extra expense can be found somewhere else in the budget then I say go for it-it is absolutely stunning.

That. dress. is. STUNNING. It looks unreal on you, major dress envy right now. If you can afford the $2500 do it. You can always save money on your veil by finding a used one on the internet, or buy one on etsy. There’s lots of nice shoes out there that you could find for really cheap too. The only problems would be the alterations, if it’s too long it could be pricy to take some off the bottom? Love it though, I’d splurge and save the money elsewhere in the wedding!
