If you know the designer number you can check some online stores http://www.netbride.com/ and http://www.pearlsplace.com both carry it and they give good prices on dresses I know casue I ordered my dress from netbrides and BM’s from pearl’s but I don’t have either yet, so I can’t comment if they are good, but the reviews are so you should give them a call and ask how much that one will cost.

i would call other shops in your area to ask for a price, then try pearl’s place. pearl’s place has great customer service and their prices are almost always lower than other shops.

That dress looks amazing on you!!!

IMO, you should get it. I know it’s a lot to spend on a dress you’ll only wear for about 6 hours, but it’s probably going to be the most photographed dress you’ll own, and the photos will last for a really long time. You don’t want to look back at them and think, “Damn, I wish I had gotten the dream dress”.

Pretty!  That looks beautiful on you.  I went a little over budget on my dress too and the way I justified it was that, while I’ll only be wearing it one day, the pictures will last a lifetime and I really want to feel beautiful on my wedding day and capture that in photos and memories.  There were some dresses that were just OK that cost less, but I knew I’d just feel OK instead of beautiful.

Believe me, I totally understand not wanting to drop that kind of money on something you’ll wear once. My dress budget was $500 as well. That said, that dress does look awesome on you!

You look great in it! Honestly, I think the price is still completely reasonable enough for it to not hold you back. I would have liked to only spend $500 on mine too, but as I shopped more, that went up. I ended up with a dress that was around 600, but it had no beading so I bought a beaded sash to go with it, bringing to total up to $800. I have no regrets in the amount of money  spent. I say just go for it!

Speaking as a girl who was married at 19 (and lost her husband to cancer) and is now having wedding #2:  Get the dress you want and damn the price.  Money comes and goes.  Memories last forever.  Or at least until we develop Alzheimer’s. :^)

@tess75: ;( Good advice though so @UpstateCait: i’d go for it, it does look fab and when else are you going to get the chance to wear the dress of your dreams.

I think if you love it, and it’s rare for you to feel GREAT in a dress, then $700 or so over your original budget isn’t too crazy. It’s not as far over the budget as some of those girls on SYTTD go! $700 is a small price to pay to feel beautiful on your wedding day.
