    Is there anywhere near you that you can eyeball it in person?  Maybe I’m overly cautious, but I’d hate to get something that I wasn’t it expecting.

    I mean it’s gorgeous, and hopefully everyone will love it… but you never know.  If there is the ability to get your hands on it, I’d do that first (unless you can order online and return).

    I had to choose the Maybe So Option. The dress is GORGEOUS but Not seeing it in person can be risky if there isn’t a good return and/or exchange policy. The last thing you want is to be stuck with a dress.  If they have an exchage policy and if for some reason that dress doesn’t work out you can use the credit for another dress you all can love 🙂

    We’re buying a dress that only has short samples, but in full length (gotta love January, right, twin?), too! Have you tried having them try on a full length gown with a similar waist/skirt but a different top? That should give them a good idea of how the skirt will look, and the top should be the same whether the dress is short or long.

    Good luck! I’d go for it!!

    So, I think it’s a really gorgeous dress, and if you were going for the short version i’d say BUY IT!  However, I’m looking at the picture on the website and I have a hard time imagining it long.  The top and neckline are really adorable, but they seem kind of casual for a long dress, so I can’t really visualize how it will look.

     

    I’d have a hard time with purchasing anything I haven’t seen in person, because things never look exactly the way they do in online photos.  Could you maybe contact the designer and find out if there are any boutiques in your area that DO have the dress? Also, since your wedding isn’t until January, you really have plenty of time, unless your bridesmaids have reasons for wanting you to choose this early.

     

    That’s of course just my opinion, and I’m incredibly neurotic.  Ultimately, if you can see it in your mind and you feel like this is the one, go ahead and pick it!

    Could you order 1 and see? Maybe too annoying, but that’s my cautious thought.  I love it though!

    If you saw the color, the fabric and how it fit through the bust and waist- I say go for it.  It’s not like it’s totally sight unseen.

    I think if you’ve seen it in a short version & you like the long version online, then definitely go with it. I think the main concerns would be how it fits in the chest and stomach area, along with what it looks like on. I think it is hard to picture those specifics of a dress, but easy to picture the material continuing down to the floor.

    I think it is a gorgeous dress. I waited to get my bridesmaids dresses (bc I couldn’t find the one) and I felt like I rushed my girls into getting it. They were awesome and all ordered quickly, but as a bridesmaid, I think its always nice to have time to get your dress. And if you give them their dresses at the bach party & they don’t have to pay for shipping, that is an extra bonus!

     I say go for it!
