    not! i did this and then had to buy a second dress. if you’re already having doubts, save yourself the heartbreak and skip it.

    i totally misunderstood what you wrote (sorry!).  i meant yes, try on other dresses if you’re having doubts about the one you ordered, or you may come to regret the dress you wear on your wedding day. no one wants that!

    ok. then honestly, i think you may have just answered your own question.  you have to put your financial health first.  you could always try to sell the dress, to make up for the cost of a second (or sell both after the wedding), but there’s no way to know if someone will buy them. i’m sorry, it’s a tricky situation to be in.  been there! it’ll work out in one way or another, don’t stress.

    Will the first store let you switch your deposit to another dress (like a size 6) at their store?

    Hey,

     

    I feel it is my duty to post the same message to every bride who has a dilemma like yours. I went through a similar though and everything worked out wonderful! I bought a dress very impulsively then regretted it later. It was no refund policy of course, so I advertised it online and sold it!! The first dress I bought cost me $1600 and I got back $1200. I then found a dress I LOVE, and its $900. So in the end, I actually am paying less than before, although technically i lost SOME money.

     

    So, you CAN look at other dresses and not have to go bankrupt. Check out sites like preownedweddingdress.com and oncewed.com…..and if you google “sell your wedding dress” you will find tons more. I advertised EVERYWHERE, although I ended up selling through the first site I put my ad up.  Also, you will have advantage in that you can advertise it as “never worn, no alterations”. Just knock 25% off what you paid, be patient and get the dress of your dreams! TOTALLY worth whole process.  I sold mine within a month – the time it took me to find a new one.

    I would talk to the store again to see if you can switch your order.  See what they say before trying on the maggies.  Does the store you ordered from even carry MS dresses?

    @kmurley:  Yes, that makes sense too. My whole thing was in case you found another maggie you like better.  And it would be okay to start advertising now and say that it will be in May…or it would just mean you have that many months to keep your ad up and hopefully get a hit.

     

    Maybe I don’t understand why you think it might be too small? Are you just doubting yourself?  Maybe you should also try on some size 4s to put yourself at ease.

    I voted “no.”  If money isn’t an issue, and/or if you think you can sell the Gwenyth online for a good price, I’d go for it.  I’d keep in mind though that a size 4 is pretty small for wedding dresses… that may decrease the likelihood of selling it for a good price… you may have less demand.

    @kmurley:  Ya, so my whole response about selling was in case that happened – you find another dress and HAVE to have it! I say you should have it then!!!

     

    If its any consolation about size. I am typically a size 8 in most wedding dresses I tried on, but for Maggie, I am getting a size 6. See my post about where I found my Jenna dress! I am wearing a size 6 there. I don’t know my measurements exactly because that one just fit so perfectly, so I am getting that size.
