First the dress is absolutely beautiful!! But as most have said….can you afford it? If it is above what you can spend on a dress, than look for another fabulous one that you can afford. If you can afford it….go for it!
My daughter wanted a specific dress that was just more than I can afford. So she started looking for dresses like it that was more in line with what I could do. Luckily she found her dress “worn once” for a price we could do.

Have you thot of jasmine bridal (dresses made in china) ? Send them picture and see if they can do it? I got a dress from china and it looks extremely nice. (not from jasmine bridal)

I think it all comes down to priorities and affordability. If your dress is a high wedding priority for you and you are willing to cut costs in other places toget it AND you can afford it without crying over the price, then you should get it. With that said, I bought my dress for $300 even though I could afford something more because it wasn’t high on my priority list and opted to gift myself to a designer winter coat for $1200 instead. So like I said, it’s all about priorities and what you can comfortably afford.

I bought a Pnina Torani at the Kleinfeld sample sale and it was 3k (compared to 7400) but there is no way I would spend 3k on a replica!! I’m glad you decided against that. I also believe that I’ve seen a black dress by Allure Bridal and that would probably be more in your original budget!
