@pinkgreenandyellow:  I know exactly how you feel going from a maggie to a lazaro my mom’s wallet is crying right now but what we are doing she is paying hald i’m paying half when i get my tax return and that made me feel better i couldn’t let her spend all of her money on my dress specially since she was sacrificing the dress she wanted to pay for mine. That way we all feel better and get what we want.

If it makes you feel better offer to help her pay

I hate it when dress shops do this to girls, but I think your mom wants to do this for you.  I’d agree with malouloune and offer to help pay for some of it.

I had the same feeling because my mom bought me TWO dresses.  I had dress regret, fell in love with another. I offered to pay for the new dress but she insisted.  (The first dress was $450, the second was $1600 with alterations).  I felt guilty and sometimes still do. I offered many times to help pay but she wanted to do it for me.  We really do have great moms 🙂

Not to sound like a smart a** or anything….. but… its nice that you feel bad… but it’s also nice that your mom bought your dress for you.. I bought my own.. and my budget was originally $1,000 – I ended up spending double that.  So if you really feel all that bad, I would suggest you pay for it least half of it since it was double the money you wanted her to spend.
