Well, if you have the budget for a second dress, do what will make you happy.  I actually think you could sell a discontinued dress just fine, if a bride likes the dress, there’s no where else she can get it ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, if it helps – I had a friend get engaged and go try on dresses with a 4-month time range before the wedding.  She was upfront with the consultants and they showed her the racks of dresses that they could get on that time frame.  That way she didn’t try on anything else and fall in love with something she couldn’t have.

I think with just over 6 months left, there are a decent number of designers that could do a rush order to get you a dress you like better, if you go looking pronto.

Sorry to be an enabler!  Btw, can we see pics of your first dress?

I ALMOST bought that dress, it was my runner up, but I decided that I wanted a dress with straps and was more fitted. It really is a beautiful dress and should flatter everyone and anyone!

I don’t know why we think we have to have that “moment”. I didn’t, there are many many posts of brides who like me, didn’t. I could have tried on a million and a half dresses (I almost did really) and I would have never had that “moment”. I’m just like that, I over think things. I am second guessing my current dress daily (like looking up pics of the MS Jean…sigh), ultimately though I am very happy with my dress. Sure, I could find something different, but I won’t. So, if you LOVE the dress, but are worried its not “it” because you didn’t have the moment I say don’t because not everyone has that moment.

If you are sure this isn’t the dress I am sure you could sell it  (just look at all the ebay sellers with this dress), but I would expect to take a loss.

I am sure you can find another dress between now and September. Your selection may be limited, but its totally possible


Hope you can sort things out soon!

Very pretty ๐Ÿ™‚

I think that once it is fitted, you will like it a lot better. If you want a little more wow factor, you could always add a sash or a belt, but I think it looks lovely the way it is.

You look beautiful in your dress ๐Ÿ™‚ As a 2-dress bride, my only bit of advice is that you should also feel beautiful while staying within your budget. Unless you have another dress already in mind, maybe you should try @noritake22‘s advice of trying a sash or belt. Good luck!
