@missunderstood:  If you have until Sept, 2013, I would wait to see if another sample of the same dress becomes available. I would worry about messing up the dress by adding crystals to it. While they will probably be fine on your veil, which isn’t interacting with your body that much, I think the crystals on the dress might fall off during the reception. It could be fine, but if the dress is reasonably formfitting, every time you bend over ect. the dress has to move with you and that might stress out the adhesive holding the crystals on. If you plan to add them to the wedding dress I would try them out on another dress first and wear it around for a day to see how they hold up. As for the dress yellowing, it will do that from the sun so keepng it in a closet will help. However it can also yellow from the oils on people’s skin so I would strongly consider having it professionally dry cleaned and preserved after you purchase it. That should remove the oils and make it much less likely to yellow. Then just make sure you store it in a cool, dry place away from the sun.

I do think you should wait a little bit more time to see what else comes up. You may be able to find a sample of this dress in better condition, or you may find a sample in an actual bridal salon that does not have this issues.
