Are there any similar dresses that are cheaper that you could look at? I would go that route first, and then make a decision. Going over by 1500 really depends on your finances. Maybe you can cut back in other areas to make it work. If so, then go for it.

The thing is, the price you pay today is $4500… how much do you have budgeted for alterations, veil, accessories, shoes, and everything else that goes along in addition to it?  Alterations alone can add up fast!

It seems like you really have your heart set on it. Personally I couldn’t justify spending that much on a dress but if you can afford it, then go for it. You can always cut back on other things to make up the difference…

I think going over by $1,500 is a lot. Personally, I would keep looking, and I would only try on dresses within my budget. Good luck!

You do realize that the Alberta is a copy of a modern trousseau gown…. just a diffferent lace. And Yes Modern Trousseau with use that lace for you if you want.
