I recently got engaged, and the other weekend I went dress shopping. I tried on a beautiful dress, silk a line with a boat neckline and a low back. It was well outside my price range ($2699), so I didn’t let myself get too excited, and didn’t even find out the designers name. A little while later I was browsing wedding dress designers, when I came across what is either the same dress or something very very similar. I noticed that the designers website was having a sampe sale, and lo and behold, the dress was available in my size for $299! I couldn’t pass it by, so I’ve just bought it.
Now I’m really nervous. Its really early to be getting a dress and I’m worried that I’ll end up with some major dress regret. Plus theres always the worry about buying a sample dress sight unseen – they’ve reassured me that its in good condition, with just a small make up stain which should come out easily. I bought it figuring that at least its cheap so I should be able to sell it and recoup my money at least.
The dress is Audrey from Bibowden bridal designs. I love how simple and elegant it is, and the vintage feel of it. Plus its different from most wedding dresses out there.

So pretty! and sounds like exactly like what you wanted and a way better price than what you looked at initially!
I am sure you’re worried because you’re thinking this is too good to be true but have a little faith! It might just work out in your favor! And if it doesn’t, at least you didn’t spen 3 grand and you can look into reselling or returning. Good luck!

That’s a beautiful dress, at a great price – you would have kicked yourself for not getting it! Worst case scenario, you can always resell it and probably make a profit. But I think it’s such a classic and timeless dress that you’ll love it just as much when you get married!

@aliciaspinnet: I bought early *and often – LOL* but they were such screaming deals, I was able to recoup my costs.
Is the size your street size or the actual size in that brand (usually the sizes are not the same)?

@MxH13: Yup, I definately have the “Is this too good to be true” feeling. But at least the risk is minimal
@sienna76: Its an Aus size 10, which is more or less my street size (Im a uk size 10, and in theory the aussie sizes should be the same, but since I moved to australia, I’ve found that I’m having to go for a size 8 most of the time). But I checked my measurements (measured by myself, so may not be completely accurate) against the dresses measurements and if anything I think it’ll be a bit big. The dress I tried on was definately too big, but I don’t know what size it was

@aliciaspinnet: That is good! I bet it will all work out. And if you have dress regret you can easily sell it for what you paid.
Can’t wait for photos!
