That sucks. But for 80 bucks if definitely order that dress barn dress just to have on hand as backup!  I think they have a good return policy if you don’t end up using It.

@debher:  if you love the 80 quid dress you should get it. i know i had no dream dress i tryed on so many and began to feel like i had seen to many and was just becoming picky believe it or not my mum and i went to a charity shop and i tryed on two dresses the second one i bought for a hundred quid and i have to say im in love and i got mine with three months till the date. i was freaking out as my mother had her outfit before i had mine Surprised keep the faith you will find something oh and my now amazing dress i didnt even want to try on the lady in the shop convinced me and im so glad she did so it may not be what you expect. 

 

big difference from on the hanger to on you. ( i found anyway) some of my favorite choices looked horrid on my shape

That Dress Barn dress is awesome! I can’t believe it’s only $80. I definitely think you should get it and try it…also, have you tried styles that you didn’t think you would like? I know for some people, the dress they fell in love with was nothing like what they thought they always wanted. Just a thought.

I’ve never found anything I loved and didn’t really have a dream dress either. I just said screw it, everyone loved it (except me) so I bought it. I think it looks fine on me.. I guess. 

 

If you think you are ever going to fall in love with a dress keep going.. I don’t think I ever am so if you are like me. Just pick a dress you feel good in when you say ya.. I can see myself in this, then buy it.

i didn’t “fall in love” with any one dress and i think that 80 quid dress looks great! get it and see what it looks like on! also agree with other bees what you think you like and what ends up suiting you can be completely different!

You should try Davids bridal. They have lots of stuff in stock, which is what you need since your wedding is so close. I would suggest trying on as many different styles as you can and taking pictures and comparing later since it’s harder to see what you look like when you’re in the dress.

You can do it! Wrangle your mother into a dress appointment. Keep in mind alteration time as well.

I really liked my dress but I didn’t “fall in love with it” and I had horrible dress regret leading up to the wedding (mostly because i would come on here and see so many beautiful dresses). but I felt amazing and beautiful on my wedding day and really ended up loving what i chose. I’m in Charlotte too. Have you checked out Group USA in concord mills? I know its not your typical bridal salon but you can get a beautiful dress in a decent time frame. I bought mine there and i think it took all of 3 weeks. http://www.camillelavie.com/dress/Bridal-Wedding-Dresses.cfm?&obp=0&viewall=1

I really like the dress barn dress though!

That is a cute dress for $80 but I think you do need to go dress shopping before to get a better idea of what is avilable and what you like

Shut the front door!! Dressbarn has cute dresses! I love that dress and I would buy it as a backup if mom decides to flake on the wedding dress shopping.

Honestly, I liked my dress, but I am not really hugely into stuff like that. I tried on like 2 dresses at the bridal store. I liked mine because it was very plain and matched the elaborate heirloom Juliet cap and veil that I had wanted to wear.
