    Head to rent the runway. They have this exact style dress for rent at much less. The designers name is Nha khanh!

    I agree with rent the runway. Or buy it during a sale like a one-day sale. Their dresses are frequently discounted plus you can use coupons. I never ever pay full price for anything at Macy’s.

    Macys sometimes has a 20% off coupon online… I would try getting a deal on it – you can also try getting it on ebay or tradesy… I think with the wedding – my thought process was – I’ll only get married 3x (AT MOST.. KIDDING) 🙂   So might as well go big or go home (as long as it truly doesnt put a strain on your finances).  I also spent the next 6 weeks after my wedding NOT buying anything except grocceries.

    No, but I’m a bargain hunter and won’t spend a lot on any one item. If you have the money and it’s what you really want, go for it.

    yep- i think if you keep looking you’ll find one really similar you like for much cheaper. or shoot- keep an eye out on Macy’s sales. never know if they’ll drop the price

    There are lots of cute white lace dresses out there for much cheaper. You set your $50 budget for a reason — stick to it!

    I don’t love that dress, so no, but if it were one I loved and had somewhere to wear it, then sure.

    BurlapnLace:  I personally wouldn’t, but I am a bargain hunter too. I think you could find something exactly like that at Macy’s for $75ish.

    AND I personally do not think Rent the Runway is all that great, because unless you are the type who will NEVER wear the same dress twice, you are paying $100+ for a dress to wear once when you could spend that money on something you will wear over and over. Sounds like a waste of money to me, but I know lots of people who love it. My motto is as long as I am not attending an event with the same people, I will wear the dress again (and multiple pictures wont be posted of me in it, but that’s just a personal pet peeve.) End rant.

    BurlapnLace:  I say get the dress. It is better to regret what you have done than what you have not done ( short of a murder of course!). 🙂

    Maybe you will be able to even sell the dress later on, or wear it on a different occasion.

    ( Unless it gets you into debt! Maybe you can cut corners with something else)


    I have spent the whole decade being prudent and frugal andhave regrets now that I never wore a drop dead gorgeous dress. Did youtry it on? does it fit well? Do you feel the princess? Get it.
