    I really like how the free dres looks.  Can you try it and let us see how it would look?  That way we could let you know whether to go with the dress you want or the free dress.

    If you don’t love the dress, it will show in your reactions all day/night. Before you decide, try on both of them. What they look like on a model or another person does not reflect in the least what it will look like on you since every person is built differently. Also, don’t go into debt over it. Spend what you can afford based on your priorities and budget. For example, if you have an $$$$ expensive dress but then can only afford appetizers from Sam’s Club and cds from home as your entertainment as a result because you have nothing leftover to spend, then your priorities are off and your guests will feel like they don’t matter that much to you. Yes you should feel beautiful in your dress but it shouldn’t come at the expense of compromising your guests’ comfort, if that becomes the deciding factor.

    i’d say at least look at the free dress. if you don’t love it, then get the other one. you only get 1 wedding and i don’t think you should have any regrets about it, especially over your dress!!

    I am probably in the minority here…but I say go for the dress you love. Don’t settle just because it’s free. If anything look for a similar dress to the one you love for cheaper.

    I think you should go with the Marisa. The free dress seems “meh” to me, while the Marisa is gorgeous on you. It’s your only wedding day, I say go for it!

    if you buy the dress you should not complain about how $$ it is. its your choice.

    If you can afford it, go with the dress you love. You won’t regret it and the dress you love won’t be haunting your thoughts every day until your wedding day (and maybe afterwards too).
