So I tried on several gowns. My mom and sister liked one dress in perticular most. It was in my top three. Price was $1500. Tried on sample size 10, (fit near perfect) in mocha/ivory.
While trolling threw preownedweddingdresses.com, I looked up dress and found the same dress, same size, BRAND NEW with tags (weddign was cancelled) she has reciept and pics, never altered. She paid $1700, I saw it for $1500, I asked her for her best price and she said $950 for a brand new essence of austrila dress. She lives in CT, Im in NY, we can meet half way to save on shipping. Part of me wants to buy today (wedding is next July) other part is hesitant as wedding is next July.

I’d get it and just hold off on alterations until closer to the wedding.

If it’s the one you want, I say go for it!

I’d get it and wait to do alterations as you get closer to the wedding. That’s what I am doing. I bought a sample dress just now, in May 2016, but our wedding won’t be until May/June 2017… We don’t even have the exact date set yet!

I would say go for it IF you know what you are doing for your wedding already. If you know you venue, theme, and general vibe you are going for then I think you are in the clear to buy it as long as the dress fits with your vision. However, if you haven’t yet figured out venue and theme (and made sure it is in your budget) I would hold off.

+1 I thought about my venue as I dress shopped and finding the right dress that fit my venue really made the big picture come to life that much more. If you have your venue and your dress fits, then go for it. Or if you don’t have a venue and don’t mind if the dress doesn’t fit, then disregard what I said.

Go for it!!!
You could also list it again if you change your mind. A brand new, unaltered dress will ALWAYS sell.
