    White is overrated. I love that on you!!!
    ETA: you can wear white to wedding related events! But if you think it’ll really bother you… It’d probably be just as beautiful in ivory or champagne? Is that an option?

    It’s really pretty! What does it mean for the rest of your budget if you get it? Can you just up your budget and deal with it or will you have to cut something else important to you?

    You could always spend less on accessories… such a pretty dress doesn’t need a necklace or a veil.

    Yes, it’s just a dress that you only wear once, but you will also remember that dress for your entire life and look at the pictures all the time. One of my friends bought a dress she didn’t love and now, 4 years later, she is still so mad at herself over it. So while it is jsut a dress it is also the dress of your life.

    Since I spent less than $400 on my dress total, I can’t imagine being $400 over, no matter how pretty the dress.

    You might be able to order it in white, no? I’m pretty sure I just saw this dress in white if you think that would be important to you. I would get it- 4-500 is not that much in the long run

    I think 4-500 isn’t that huge an amount over your budget…at first, I read it as 4500, haha.

    If you really love it, you should get it! I think the colour is great and the fit is good, but personally I don’t really like the petals at the hips.

    TBH I think you could find a dress in your budget that suits your figure better, im not a fan. BUT if its what you love then i dont think 4-500 is that much in the long haul. And white is over rated but if you think you will regret it maybe they could order in an ivory? Stark white i think will make the dress loose its romanticness

    That’s gorgeous! Honestly, why don’t you ask if you can purchase the sample? It looks like it fits you wonderful as is, and by asking fo rthe sample you get to take it home right then and there AND save a bunch! I saved a ton on my Paloma Blanca by purchasing it off of the rack. 🙂

    Wait. You have over a year. I have fallen in love with SO many dresses. Just sit on it. Tell the salon to notify you if they cancel the dress model. This is Vera Wang, right? You’ll be able to get this for along time. You hav ea year. Get the model number. Troll preownedweddingdresses.com and recycledbride.com. And if you still can’t let it go in a few months, bite the bullet. 400 isn’t that much over. It’s your only wedding dress. Do it.
