@laulou121:  how much out of your price range is it?  can you cut out some everyday expenses to justify getting it?

@laulou121:  I think if you love it and you choose something else just based on price alone you migt always wish you had bought it.  Like you say can you cut the budget of something else, I tend to chop and change items in my budget.  Also I know $500 is a lot it but it isnt like your dress is twice your budget.  You are still a while out from your wedding ( 3 days after mine lol) and it would be like an extra $14 a week to save the $500 so it is doable. But dont just listen to me lol, I dont want to push you into spending more if you will regret it.

Don’t cut out something necessary for your guests (comfortable venue(s), good food, drinks, entertainment) for your dress. You can cut out favors, menu cards, programs, find cheaper invitations, no limo, etc.

make a list of things that are the most important to you and budget accordingly!  for me, it was beautiful photography, delicious champagne, the cake i had always dreamed of, live music and Vera Wang gowns for myself and my daughter.  so i spent more on the dress than i spent on the venue or the food!  however, i am not sorry at all and i don’t think i ever will be.  other areas may not have been as extravagent but i felt like a princess for the entire time!

you can also consider to have a replica custom made. my friend has the same problem as well. she tried it  in store and she loved the dress but she has a tight budget. so she ordered it online at 7foxmall.com after recommendation from other friends. she received her dress around 3 weeks after she orderd. the dress is wonderful and she loved the dress very much. btw, the staff is very friendly and they can communicate in english (you know what i mean), coz she has asked some stores and she cant understand half of them (poor english)
