I don’t see a picture, but personally I would not buy a dress in 2021 for a wedding in 2023. Partly because styles will change and you might find something you like better, but more so that your tastes may change.

I would never buy this far out, personally.  But if you like the dress that much, and it’s such a steal, I suppose you can always sell later without much risk if it no longer works for you.

It’s also worth considering that 2023 isn’t actually that far away. It’s almost 2022. If your wedding is in early 2023, buying your dress now would mean you’d be buying your dress a year or so out from the wedding, which isn’t that uncommon at all.

When in 2023 is the wedding? Do you often change your style or is the dress fairly trendy (I can’t see a photo)? I would probably consider buying it if it were me.

Your style might change, your body might change, new dresses will come to the market you might like even more!

I second when is your wedding in 2023? 
I actually do not think it is that crazy to get a wedding dress now, esp if it’s under $500 (designer) and you really like it. It could very well be a classic look that is always in fashion. Could you please share a picture.

Does your size fluctuate a lot?  Do your tastes change rapidly?

I’d have been happy to buy a dress that far out from my wedding, but I’m still wearing clothes I bought 20 years ago!

I’d consider your budget, if you don’t end up wearing the dress, would the $500 loss be significant to you? Lets say you don’t even sell it – so you just waste $500 would you be okay with that? 

Personally, I think it’s a gorgeous dress and I would buy it. Even if you find something else in 2023 you could just have two dresses or wear this one for engagement photos or trash the dress or sell it etc.

ETA: if you do buy it, don’t look at other dresses afterwards. That is where you might question yourself or have regret. But really, it’s a beautiful dress!

@lovenhappiness:  OMG you have to buy it! That dress is stunning! Also it’s not too trendy, it won’t look dated in 5 or 10 years let alone 3. What a steal you found! Please update with your final decision.
