Tell her that you love the dress but that’s not quite in your price-range, then add that you would be able to purchase the dress for $3000 if it is still available.

I agree with Miss Bravo.  Tell her your bottom line… what you can really afford.  I don’t think there’s any point in going back and forth, especially if she’s a friend of yours.

🙂 haha

You can tell her that your dress budget is $3k.   You don’t really need a specific reason to have allotted that amt.  🙂  Or you can tell her that your dress budget is $3k because of your photography and floral costs…

When a situation like this comes up with me, especially with someone I know, I usually say something like, "I really like that dress and would love to be able to wear it. But I can only afford to spend $2000 max on a dress. If you can’t find anyone to buy it from you at your price, please consider me if you’re willing to go down! Thanks!"

I would go with someone above said: tell her that if she cannot find any buyers and still wants to sell it for something (and in the next… few weeks/month or so) then your budget is $1500.

I would also keep looking at other dresses though. I mean, that’s quite a large discount–she may be a little insulted.
