I think we drive ourselves crazy about the dress.  I have not even ordered one yet and I have dress regret every time I pick one.  The dress does not make the marriage and I have to remind myself of that all the time.  If you think they cheaped out on your dress, go back and look at the sample.  Then you will have some leverage if it is not the quality its supposed to be. The dress looks beautiful and you look beautiful in it.

Listen to Meliss, I remember her dress drama, she knows whats up!

I think your dress is gorgeous and it’s not worth spending the extra for a new one…But, like everyone has said, if you’re going to be sad on your wedding day bc of it, then it may be worth if but that’s really your decision…

But if you’re looking for reinforcement that you look gorgeous in the dress and it’s such a beautiful dress, you got it bc it IS!!!

Samples are always a lot less stiff than un-worn dresses. They are worn so much and beat up so much that it can be a shock to see a dress “fresh” and un-worn. There was even a SYTTD episode about that. Lace feel’s more stiff… tulle fee’s more stiff… everything is much less worn…. 

I have a pronovias gown, and the reason I went with pronovias was because their quality, materials, and workmanship is so much better than the majority of designers who are “attainable” in that price range. I did try on a $2700 Justin Alexander I loved, and I did think the beading looked “cheap” but not in a “the material doesn’t cost much” but more like “I just don’t like beading.” I chose a gown that is plain satin and tulle.

From a business standpoint, it’s much easier to sell a gown un-altered… and I love the way the dress looks on you. I think once you put on a veil and tell yourself this IS your dress you can fall in love with it again. But, you do need to be happy… but only you can decide that is IS your dress. Meliss is spot on.
