To get the discount yes you really have to decide by sunday. That dress was from the new spring 2015 line. The reason for a trunk show is to show girls the new line of dresses before they are available in stores. 

I work at a bridal boutique and we carry Essense however while the new dresses maybe on the website we won’t get them until January at the earliest. The trunk show for any designer gives you a preview and a chance to get a discount on new dresses that when in the boutique most likely will not be able to be discounted because they are so new. If you love it and the discount brings it within your budget I would encourage you to do it. 

Hope this helps!

Too be honest if its new there is not much that can be done. Legally the stores are bound to sell the dresses at a certain price unless of course the dress is discontinued and no longer in production. 

The whole 2015 line is not up on the site yet only a select few have been posted on the site. However since I work at a store that carries Essense I have already seen the full Essense 2015 line mind telling me the style number?

Too be honest this is why I never usually advise my brides to try on dresses above their budget however some girls are willing to sacrifice in other aspects of the wedding to get their dream dress. I ask the style number also becayse maybe I can find a cheaper altertantive by another designer.

No most dresses look awful in cheap lighting on a camera phone lol everything looks better in person and in professional photography. Its really gorgeous on you could I go as far as to ask your budget? Most quality lace dresses start at $1000 its possible to find them for less however your still gonna be over or around $500

A good affordable brand is Mori Lee (especially the Voyage and Blu collection)

I tried to find some similar shilouettes – Lace A-line / Fit and Flare

Mori Lee 6763 (Around $550)

Mori Lee 5307 (around $1000)

Da Vinci Brial 50155 (around $600)

Venus Bridal VE8119 (around $1000)

Wtoo ‘Natalia’ (around $1000)

White One ‘Tamara’

(I don’t have a price estimate its a new 2015 but they are an affordable collection)
