Yikes!  This story is so heart wrenching and agonizing in so many ways.  And, you never know what could happen so I agree with you that it’s best to stay away from the dress.  Smile

The dress is beautiful! It reminds me of some Essence of Australia dresses, especially because they are flexible with adding a strap, etc. (from what I hear)..perhaps they are worth checking out.  (For example: http://www.essensedesigns.com/dress.php?id=139)

Good luck with your dress search!

oooh that’s my dress! and it is FABULOUS! it comes in three different colors…if you tried it on and LOVED it (like i’m sure you will), you could always order it in a color different than what she would have ordered. or, if you’re into the whole fate thing…maybe your friend showed you this dress and her relationship fell apart because you were MEANT to wear this dress 😉 if that sounds silly, please keep in mind that this is my dress and i dream about it every single night since it won’t be here until march. so, i am totally, COMPLETELY biased!

also, the fiorella is available without the strap….but if you’ve seen it in person with all of its swarovski crystal awesomeness, i can’t imagine how you could live without it 😉

I wouldn’t do it! You definitely shouldn’t buy this dress (your friend would feel absolutely awful!!), and if you just try it on and like it more than other dresses, you will feel much worse than you do now. So I think it would be better not to risk it.

I’m sorry that happened to your friend!!!  Thats a beautiful dress though, but your right, if she saw you walking down the aisle in that dress, she would think that was her dress and think of her ex.  I’m sure it would bring tears to her eyes while shes up at the alter standing beside you as a BM!!  And I’m sure you don’t want that at your wedding…could you imagine the drama!

Oh no! I’m sorry her BF broke up with her. I’m glad you chose to stay away from the dress though (sounds like a new tv show – Stay Away From The Dress! Hehe) but I think you’re right, not only is it for the best but also know she’d only spend your whole wedding thinking of her ex-BF.

Wow that is CRAZY that that happened! It is a beuatiful dress but it’s been tainted–just tell yhourself you can do better! In situations like this, i just tell myself I know how bad it’ll look on me and make myself believe it, lol.
