hmm that is hard, you do look gorgeous in it but 50% over budget is an awful lot. Have you tried on many dresses?

You look beautiful and if you really love it then you should get it! This is a once in a lifetime event and you deserve to feel amazing.

However, as just a matter of personal taste: I am not a huge fan of the dress itself. You have a freaking BEAUTIFUL figure and all that lace up over your chest does not, in my opinion, do you justice.

No, I would not buy a dress that is over budget this far in advance of your wedding.

The dress is lovely. It just leaves so much time for dress and budget regret.

@blushingbride88:  By experience, don’t buy a dress with so much time ahead before your wedding cause what if you find one you love after? You’ll probably get dress regret.. 🙁  

Even tho your dress is beautiful, I think you should wait a little while before commuting to buy a dress over budget :S

It is over budget, but having time could be a good thing. I would wait. New dresses come out every year, and when the new ones come, the older ones…GO ON SALE! I would keep a watchful eye on it as the time passes. It is not a garantee but it could save you tons of cash, and it still gives you time if you happen to fall upon something you like better.

I would keep it in mind (its gorgeous on you!) but wait until about 12-10months before the wedding to actually purchase it. In that time you can look for it used (what I did and I got it for 1/4 of the retail price and its already altered to my size), try on other things, save more money and look for similar dresses in your budget. If you don’t find something you like more, something you like just as much or the dress used/as a sample then buy it when you have 12-10 months until your wedding.

No.  Your budget is $2000, this dress is $3000.  You really shouldn’t have even tried on dresses that were over budget.

There are so many other parts in a wedding budget where if you commit a lot of money to a dress in advance you may have to cut out other things later on down the road. It may even be a cheaper purchase for you for that same dress later too or you may find it elsewhere cheaper or one that’s similar. You want to get a dress the year of your wedding, not prior to that.

Wait it out until the upcoming wedding dress season (May, I think?) and see if it goes on sale! I bet it will once new styles come out.

@blushingbride88:  I think it looks very nice, but I would try some more dresses on first. You never know what you might find, and that is quite a bit over budget. You have a long way to go til the wedding, and judging by all the dress regret posts I see on here, I would think long and hard before committing to something so far before your wedding.

It looks great, but my advice is to wait..That is quite a while before your wedding and you may change your mind. I bought mine a year ahead and am seeing so many other things I wished I would have gotten instead. I’d get a dress closer to the year the wedding is. It’s very pretty though!
