    If you tried it on and liked it, but that one was just the wrong colour, then go for it girl!!! That is amazing!!!

    My only concern for something like this is that the dress wouldn’t flatter me once it was on my actual body. If that’s not an issue, then I would say that is a gorgeous deal. I googled to see which one 3108 is and it’s THAT one. I absolutely love it.

    Assuming you are confident is the seller information (that they are not mistaken about its authenticity) etc.

    Please update us!! With lots and lots of pictures IRL if you get it. 🙂

    Awesome! I don’t think you’ll regret sherbet/blush. I’m sure it’s beautiful on you. Update us when you try it on! It’s a beautiful dress.

    400 for your dream dress? I SAY YES!!

     

    That being said, please consider…

     

    If your goals are realistic (I’m not saying that you can’t and please, PLEASE don’t take this negatively) then yes I would definitely do it. The ONLY reason I am pointing it out is because you said TWO dress sizes, which, on me at least, would be hard. I lost weight before my wedding, but my body took some time to actually catch up… my “size” didn’t match my weight for about a month. If you are POSITIVE that it is possible (or that you can alter it to fit) then I would absolutely go for it!

    Judging from your post, this must be your dream dress. At $400, I’d buy it, and if worse comes to worse and I didn’t like it for some reason, I’d sell it to another bride to recover some of the cost.

    Ok but seriously, alterations are always a chunk of change; you’d much rather pay that much in alterations on a dress that was $400 than one that was $1400, right? And if you don’t lose the weight, you can add a corset panel in the back; because of the ballgown silhouette you’ll only really need it to fit through the bust and waist. Keep in mind that dry cleaning a wedding gown can be expensive, but I think in this situation you’re already getting the dress for such a steal. And blush is beautiful! I don’t think you’ll regret it if you were already considering it; women have worn colored wedding gowns for more years than they’ve worn white gowns! Honestly, I think you could resell the dress for at least $400 if you changed your mind at some point…

    That dress is gorgeous! I love the sherbet shade. I think my biggest concern would be dropping two dress sizes, but by the sounds of it you’ll have that under control. And as other bees have pointed out, alterations are always pricey – even if you buy a brand-new perfect dress. Go for it…and post pics!
