- Wedding: July 2012
So, I found my dress at the third store I tried. I swear with each store I went to, I would completely forget about the dresses I tried on before…..It litterally seemed like I went from rags to fabulous with each shopping trip, even though it was only three places i tried on alot of gowns. Well, I find my dress, I looked smashing in it…went though alot of emotions about it…you know the whole “did I look long enough, what if there’s something even more great out there” you know, the kind of questions that drive you NUTS…eventually I sat down, took some good looks at the pictures and cried when I clearly recalled the feeling I got when I tried it on, so I think I’m starting to wrap my mind around the committment, though those thoughts still creep in, I tell myself I’m being just like my mother and I need to knock it off. If ur curious, I did post pics in my first posting on here, when I was in crisis over if I made the right choice.
But I do have some concerns about the amount I was charged now. She was a makailla and costed me around 1,700. which was well within my budget of 2,500…so I was initially syched about that…because it left plenty of room for shoes/viel/accessories and still under budget. This was an authorized dealer of the dress and a fine store…but I’m now recalling them telling me the lace in the dress was being discontinued and therefore they weren’t making that exact dress anymore so I would have to move by october, yadayada..I wasn’t really paying attention because I was in awe at the time.
I got curious and wanted to see pics of real brides in my dress…come to find this dress has been on the market for about a year, not uncommon I know…I didn’t expect to get a hot off the designer table gown, but since it’s been discontinued and will be nearly 2 years old by the time I actually take it home ( wedding is next july and it’s on layaway right now) should I have asked if the price could be lowered at all? If so, do you think it’s too late to ask?
What do you think?
