@chic_and_fabulous:  I think If you love it, you will remember that years from now, and if it is out of style it won’t matter to you. I will be honest that was something I took into consideration when choosing my dress. I wanted something that I would never look back and think “I can’t believe I wore that, or that style was ever popular” but I just know how I am, and I will do that! Lol if you love it go for it! I was lucky enough to fall for a dress that is a little more timeless and classic. But this dress is beautiful! And when you look back at pictures you will just remember how  amazing you felt in it!

I think its fabulous!!!! I think 90% of wedding dresses will look dated in 10 years, its something you’re just unlikely to escape unless you get something super simple and uber classic. Who cares? You should definitely get it if you can find someone to make it.

@chic_and_fabulous:  I wouldn’t even think about whether it’s trendy, all that matters is if YOU love it. And PS: who cares if the dress is trendy, it’s so amazingly GORGEOUS that people will be talking about it for years! I don’t say this much, but that thing is nothing short of incredible!  🙂

Questions, who/what is Jasmine’s? Do they do replica dresses? I have come across a dress I want but it is a Kleinfeld dress and costs around $6000 and THAT alone is close to our reception budget.

Caveat: I’m working NYFW, I am indeed fashion-obsessed, etc.

That said, I think that choosing a dress that reflects a particular cultural moment is a good idea. I don’t know what I want yet, I’m going to go with whatever I love most, but if it’s “trendy” I consider that a plus!

Guess what, ladies: you will look back on your wedding pictures and see that they’re from 201(?) no matter what, and there will be some things about that you love and some that you think are WTF. Everything from your groom’s lapel to your BM’s shoes to your hair to your eyeliner to your uplighting will date your wedding photos. 

And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that! How much do we love our grandmothers’ photos? And aren’t they even more special because of their 1950’s (or whatever) appeal? Everyone loves vintage, and in 2050 everyone will have that same reaction to your dress. So don’t stress about it!

@chic_and_fabulous:  OH but let me add, I wouldn’t recommend getting a copy. As a fashion person I’m totally biased, but I think knock-offs are morally wrong, in addition to risking poor quality and totally lacking in originality and almost guarunteeing disappointment because it will NEVER look as good as the real thing!

I would hate to feel like a fake on my wedding day; I think you would be much happier finding something in your budget with style elements similar to the ones you like here, or working with someone who makes dresses (even someone who normally makes knock-offs, if you can be confident they are talented and an honest businessperson in other ways) to make a dress with similar elements but that incorporates some creative touches of your own!

I think it’s gorgeous, and I agree with PPs that you shouldn’t worry about picking something that miggt look dated in 10 years. However, the specific thing you said you loved was the compromise on figure and ballgown: have you tried on any other dropped-waist ballgowns? I bet you could find a simpler dress with a similar silhouette, but less detail, within your budget, and not have to get a knockoff 🙂

ETA: Also I think this dress could be crazy hot for a beach wedding.

@PromiseRooster:  a lot of us aren’t necessarily attached to the designer but the design of a dress. Some of us are the opposite. I’d love to be able to afford a couture wedding dress, but I can’t. Not now. Not ten years from now. Unless somehow I miraculously won the lottery. So I am definitely going for a knock off. Its the designs I love, and its within my budget. I think op is in the same boat. I think every bride would love to spend whatever on a wedding gown.

@chic_and_fabulous:  I think we all end up changing our minds about dresses. Whether its weeks after buying our desired dress or months to years later. I think if you love it, go for it! Good luck with your inquiry. I know they have admitted the less particular about the dress you are, the cheaper the quote will be. But if you send in millions of images and minor changes they will up the price. 🙂
