@isabelle_86:  you have enough time, but don’t wait any longer than another month, just to be safe.

If you go soon you would have enough time.  But if you ordered your other dress in April it is probably in production, so you will not be able to get a refund.  You may be able to sell the dress, but you will probably be able to get 50% of what you paid for it.  So you have to factor that into your budget for a second dress.

@isabelle_86:  Sorry!  Misunderstood your first post.  You will be fine to order a dress within the next few weeks then.

I’m struggling to understand why you would think of spending that much on a dress when you’re having trouble making ends meet.  Definitely look for a cheaper dress in your budget. You have plenty of time.

You can find a dress 9 months out without an issue. I suggest doing a bit of shopping to see if you can find something cheaper until you figure things out w/ the 3rd check.. if turns out that works out and you can afford the original one, great. If you find something cheaper you love, you saved money anyway so great.

take a photo of the dress of your dreams to a person who makes dresses (or etsy) let them know your budget and see what they can do.  I bet you get a lovely dress for half the money you would have spent.

@isabelle_86:  Have you considered getting your dress made by Jasmine’s bridal?

@isabelle_86:  Yes, but now you have a dress you know you want and they can make that exact one for you for much less than $1600.  Post a pic of the dress you were planning to buy in Sept.
