I’d cancel. I don’t deal with people who are shady toward me, and I’ve never regretted it. I doubt you will, either. If you do, you can always “change your mind” and go back and get it later, or better yet, get it from somewhere else.

@magicmoments:  hmmm I am glad you cancelled but I don’t love the gown you went and tried on at the other salon today.

If you are easily swayed by popular opinion (esp in your inner circle) I would start dress shopping alone… it sounds like that was the problem with the first dress that you cancelled as you said everyone liked it but you weren’t crazy about it – yet you bought it anyway!

I did ALL my dress shopping alone for this purpose… I wanted to tune into how the gown made me FEEL and have a dress speak to me not my huge opinionated group speak to me about what they like/don’t like because I know that would sway me.

Keep looking and don’t give up!
There are SO MANY gowns out there and yours is just waiting for you!

 

PS I don’t like spending a lot of money either so I would look at gowns on line, then go visit them in the stores and possibly even try them on (all walk-in – I didn’t make appointments so I wouldn’t feel committed to the consultants) and then I would go home and shop online for the same gown to see how pricing varied. Purchasing privately is definitely a way to stay away from salons messing you around or marking up their alterations fees & etc like you’re afraid of.

@magicmoments:  definitely regroup with your ambitions… like what are your “must haves” about your gown and how do you want to feel on your wedding day? I also liked to think of how my DH would see me on our day (he’s into fashion) and I took into consideration what he liked/disliked about different gowns…

I even went so far as to show him like 50+ gowns of all different shapes and sizes to see what he likes best cuz what he liked mattered MORE than my mom or sister or friends…

That helped me out a lot.  I have such fluid taste and I like LOTS of gowns so I had to reel myself in many times so don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. You just have to remember its about YOU… and a little about your Fiance, too. haha

I definately like the second one better,  think it gives you a nicer silouette, but don’t buy anything on the principle that its cheaper but what you LOVE.

i say the 2nd is better than the first, you’re getting closer, the first one makes you look short..the 2nd elongates you but you could do better.
