@BooRadley:  re: save up for 2 years, Hmmm… I guess those people might just try to say it in a nicer way. Don’t you think it sounds better than other statements, such as “You are so poor that you even don’t have 7K available cash in your bank account, and you want to buy a 7k dress?!”

This thread is really interesting. I sincerely hope the OP can eventually get what she wants. It’s her own wedding!! 

(I don’t think the dress fits the venue at all. I actually imagine I’d see the dress in a much more fancy/expensive venue. Again, it’s not my wedding, so who cares what I think?!)

I’m not a fan of the dress, but it’s your wedding and you love it and that’s all that matters.  Since you have a while to go, I suspect the price on the dress will drop sometime next year.

I hope that the price drops and you can get your dream dress for a lower price! 🙂

@Ringer101:  you said “I don’t think the dress fits the venue”

Agreed. The venue is nice. It IS modern (the best match with the dress IMHO) but

the venue is not sleek and contemporary as is the dress.

Now I’m gonna go off to find photos where this dress should be worn.  🙂

 Here’s where this dress should get married, Thorncrown chapel in Arkansas. It’s sleek and contemporary yet natural, like the dress. Hey OP I know thisis of no help, I’m just having fun.

For 7000 that think better be sewn with REAL GOLD lol. Its def a unique dress, but IMO its not worth 7K. Id go with a replica

@FauxPas2012:  Wow, the venue looks awesome! I could totally see the dress in that venue. I was actually thinking a more “urban” venue, like the picture below. (Just for fun, too!!)

I saw this dress featured in a full page add in Brides Dec 2012 issue today and thought of this thread. The OP looked as good as the model in it.

I think $7k is a lot for a dress, but if you have the desposable income then go for it. If you don’t have money like that, pass it up. I promise you, there are amazingly beautiful dresses for less! (:
