    Buy the dress and forget about the hunt for the perfect dress?

    Buy the dress and dress hunt just for fun?

    Wait and go dress hunting in the next few weeks (even though Im not engaged yet) then buy the dress?

    Forget the dress and go dress hunting and possibly regret missing out on this dress?

    If you never have tried on dresses you can’t be sure it is your dream dress. My “dream” dress quickly lost that status after I started trying on dresses. So I would wait. If you are meant to have that dress you will find one reasonably priced later. Have fun planning!

    Have you been able to try THIS dress on? If you have and you love it, stick with it and holy cow $100 is amazing if you love it! It’s a very pretty dress. Don’t let the whole “wedding dress shopping experience” be the reason you lose a potentially very good deal and great dress…it may not meet your expectations if you DO go dress shopping.

    You never know how you really feel until you try it on. You might think you know what looks good on you but until you try on different styles you could definitely be missing out on the true dream dress!

    I figure if you LOVE this dress then it’s the perfect dress, but if you are at all iffy about it, then I would wait and keep looking. Go practice dress shopping with your loved ones, and make sure you know your size, since wedding dress sizes are SO different than every day street wear sizes, YOU MUST try a few on to know your size. Sometimes, you can skip a few other things like expensive decorations if you would rather have the perfect dress. Sometimes, it’s not about the cost of the dress, and you don’t want to cheat yourself just because it’s $100. It may be the WORST dress ever and now you are either stuck with it, or you have to resell it or have two dresses.

    it’s cheap enough you can sell it if you don’t like it.

    BEWARE, my “dream dress” that I fell in love with was not dreamy on me. I ended up with somthig quite differnt.

    Definitely do NOT miss out on dress shopping.  You will always regret it.

    If the seller is willing to supply detailed pictures and the dress is in perfect condition, then I would buy it for $100.  As a PP noted, if it doesn’t work for you, sell it.

    @futuremrsny: buy it for $100 that is nothing, worst case scenario you find another dress you like and can resale again for the same price and $0 loss.

    BEst case sceanrio that you love this dress and that no other dress compares to it.


    Go for it!

     I agree with PPs. It is so inexpensive that you wouldn’t lose much, if any money on it. But please, go dress shoppping. This is coming from someone that has two dresses and will only wear the second! Smile

    Is $100 a lot to you or nothing? I agree with the PPs that say you need to try on the dress (or at least hold it up against you) to see it on your body b/c dresses are often SUPER different on you than in your head. I had tons of clippings of lace dresses and I HATED them when I tried them on. If you wouldn’t care at all if you bought it and didn’t like it and lost $100, then it’s worth the risk. Like others said, you could always sell it. But if you would only spend $100 on a sure bet, I would go to a salon and try it first, before buying it. Can you ask the seller to hold it for a day and run out tomorrow and try it?

    @futuremrsny: i think you should go try on the dress at a store to see if you LOVE it as much as you love it online… it is inexpensive but if you dont have a huge budget, IMO every penny counts… so dont take a chance wasting the $100… if you cant find it in  a store then try on dressess similar to it… if you’re in love THEN order it.

     I say buy it!! You can easily resell it if you dont love it!

    However, I also think you should go and try on other dresses with your family, mostly for the experience, but to also compare them to this dress. 

    My dream dress turned out to be completely awful on me though, so just be careful not to get your hopes up too much.

    I agree with a lot of the other bees on here….try it on….if it fits and you like it buy it….and later if you come across something you like more and try it on and LOVE it even more then sell the other one for the same price you paid for it…I am sure someone would snap it up too for the price. But I also have to agree with the one that said beward that it may be the dream dress in your mind but once its on you may hate it! That happen to me I loved this dress:

    But I hated the way it looked on me! I was also dead set against lace or beading and I ended up getting this dress:

    Because I fell in love with it and Felt that it was the perfect dress for my body type!

    Well good luck and keep us posted on what you do!
