This is a tough one. Personally, its hard for me to see a dress in my mind and not on my body. The Legacy is amazing. I definitely love it. What’s the designer’s policy? Have you already put a deposit on either of the dresses? What is the store’s policy on their dresses? How long does the dress take to order from overseas? If you truly feel like The Legacy is "the one", I’m thinking you should stick with it. You know exactly what you are getting, which is not the case with the designer dress, as great as the idea sounds.. Hopefully that helps. I’m sure whatever you decide, you will look beautiful and your day will be memorable either way.

How much difference is there in price? You mention that you’re getting a custom-designed dress for $2500…how much is the legacy dress? (Also, I noticed that it’s white, and you mentioned that you didn’t want a white dress — is the "silver" what you’re wearing?)

Personally, I would go with the one that is cheaper. BUT if you do bail on the designer who’s making your dress from scratch, you may not be able to work with her in future.

Are you a two-dress girl? Some brides wear one dress to their ceremony and one to their reception/after-party. You could do that, if you wanted (and if it was within your budget to do so).

The legacy is a stunning dress and it looks gorgeous on you. I think it would be awesome to have a gown especially desgined for me, but I would end up going with the less expensive of the two.

I’m going to agree with everyone else, if you’re torn, go with the less expensive gown. Although I don’t regret my dress, I do regret the price a little bit and wish that I had looked around more to find something that I loved for less.

I think the biggest sign is that you love the legacy and feel like it’s the one… when you have that feeling, you can’t deny it.

I like the idea of a custom gown – and I’m sure it would be gorgeous…. but it could also end up not working out. Safest route – go with the legacy… and double bonus that it’s nearly $1000 cheaper…. You could put that money towards some AMAZING shoes….

I also agree that you should go w/ the less expensive gown if you are torn.

A bird in the hand…

You know the legacy looks great on you, it’s cheaper, and it comes in the color you want.  You feel like it could be the one and you’re not really 100% sure how the designer dress might come out.

For me, all of that would tip me toward the off the rack… but then again, it’s all about personal preference.

We’re both in Seattle so of course I’m interested in which salon and who the designer is, but if you don’t want to say, I’d understand 🙂
