Would you be happy with the other dress?   I would go more for comfort than for the brand name, especially since your wedding is in 6 or 7 weeks from now…   If you can order it and try it to see if you like it, I would go that route.    What a nightmare, so sorry.

Would the tailor be able to put in a small panel in a matching fabric in the area that’s tight? It would likely be hidden by your arms anyways.
ETA – Would a corset back help the problem??

I think a corset should work too. If its only an inch or two of space that is needed it should work well.

Hope things work out!

Hmm, well, I’d get the price on the corset back, if it ends up costing another $100, you might want to look at JCrew or White House Black Market (there are more, but they are not coming to mind) so that you can get something that is comfier. 

Plus you can probably sell the designer dress online and totally cover the cost of the new dress.

I agree with everyone else– get a corset back put in, that will give you the extra space. You can have a modesty panel added in different fabric.
