I went dress shopping a few months ago with no idea as to what I wanted in mind. I tried on about 30 dresses in this quaint little shop that just opened up near my house. The shop contained discontinued dresses from it’s bigger store so it was actually an outlet. Anyways, one of the dresses I tried on was this one: http://www.recycledbride.com/listing/4133/pronovias. I thought it was beautiful but I didn’t like the bust as well and it being my first day I was too worried to buy it.
Anyways, the lady who was working said that there had only been about 7 girls who had bought anything as they had just opened. Since trying on that dress I have tried on others but can’t get this one dress out of my mind. When I went back the other day someone else was there and said that another girl had bought the dress. I almost cried and was seriously bummed out.
Since then I’ve thought about trying to find this dress gently used from someone else. The more I think about the more I feel as though the dress has my name on it, it speaks me (dramatic, beautiful, and yet very elegant) But how do I know that it’s the one? I thought that since I got so sad about it that meant it had to be the one. Please help me out here

It is a beatiful gown, and the fact that you can’t get it out of your mind, makes me think that it could be the one for you. That being said, I would call around to see if other shops are selling it. And then go try it on again to make sure. Since it has been discontinued, it may be hard to find, but they may have something similar. The plus side of it being discontinued is that you should be able to get it for a good price. If you decide to purchase it from a preowned site though, make sure you get lots and lots of real pictures of the actual gown and ask lots and lots of questions, like if it has been professionally cleaned, if there are any spots on it, etc. You don’t want to pay that much money for something and get nothing or something really bad in return.

Thank you for the advice. I will try to see if there are other shops around here and follow your advice for asking questions if I find it online. However it is nice to know what my size is.
Random question though: I want to be really modest on our wedding day and will probably purchase a bolero to put over my shoulders. However the neckline is more of a sweetheart. My grandma was a professional seamstress and said she would take care of the stitching. But how much do you think that she could alter the neckline?
