You could always sell the dress after the wedding and get some of that money back instead of keeping it.  If you really want to go with a lower price one, you might want to look for something off the rack so you don’t have to worry about having it made in time.

I tell lots of bees this because it is what i did and think its the best option. Put a add on etsy.com with the pictures of the dresses you like top of this bottom of that etc. and you will have tons of replys! the best part NO ALTERATIONS!!

PM me if you want more info about how to put the add etc on!

Yes! they generally wont do the EXACT thing because thats like ripping off the original designer (you might find someone who will) but most will make it pretty damn close for a fraction of the cost! You can check out there work & feedback before buying.

My dress was 30% less then the cost of 1 of the dresses & I wont need alterations so i saved WAY more then just 30%

I too couldnt understand spending soo much money for 5 hours!

Mine’s going to work out to about the same cost as yours.  I agree it’s a lot, but I don’t spend a lot on clothes.  This dress needs to be right.  I’m totally going to try to sell mine after.  That will reduce the price almost in half…  If you have it in your budget, do it.  If you truly don’t, look for something you are more comfortable with.
