I would go with the one you want. In reality $300 is not THAT much more money

In the grand scheme of things, I think $300 more is worth being happy with your dress.  Your mom will like whatever dress you end up choosing, whether it is her first pick or not.  I would do what makes you happy.

If you’re cutting costs elsewhere and can afford the extra $300, then there’s no reason not to go with what you want.

i agree, when you look back 5 years from now $300 will seem like small potatos when it comes to being trully happy about your dress. Also, all that you will have left in the end is your wedding photos, you won’t want to regret each time you see the photos picturing yourself in something else. Go with you gut, its alll about you πŸ˜‰

I definitely say go with the one you want! In the wedding world, we all know that $300 is NOT that much of a difference in price for a wedding dress. Now if it was like a grand cheaper it would be more understandable, but it isn’t so there πŸ™‚ haha Anyway it is your wedding dress and you want to be sure that you feel fabulous in it all night.

Clear choice, you know in your heart the one you wnat, you just have to be strong and tell your Mother your wishes and hopefully she willanupport you. I hope it all works out and your Mum get’s onboard about your pick.

If your mom is paying for your dress and she is having a hard time with the extra $300, why don’t you volunteer to pay her back for that $300?  If you can’t afford to pay it all right now, you can always offer to pay monthly installments to her over time.   I think it’d be a nice gesture to offer and it would show her how much the dress really means to you.

Have you checked to see if the dress is available cheaper somewhere else?  If you tried it on in a store and know what size you are (in inexplicably crazy bridal sizes!), could you order it online for a discount?  It’s worth a try (although that might make getting alterations more complicated).  Just a thought.  But most importantly, congrats on finding one you love!  πŸ™‚

I definitely think you should get the dress YOU like.  I agree with the other posters that $300 is a relatively small amount. 

Go get your dress!  πŸ™‚

Not to rain on your parade but I feel like $300 is not insignificant (assuming your dress is in the $1,000 range. If you are spending $3,000+ on a dress I would agree that $300 is not much. I almost said nothing her but sometimes I feel like we need to be grounded in the wedidng world. Good luck with whichever dress you choose.
