    Firstly, you look gorgeous in all 3!!! My personal favorite is the 2nd dress. I think it really lengthens your figure and is very flattering and at 1/2 the price, how can you go wrong?! Good luck figuring everything out. You will look great no matter what!

    They all look lovely. That said, I prefer the simplicity and all over lace of #3 because I’m a more simple person. Which dress fits your style and personality the best?

    I like the Enzoani best and it is half the price!

    I love #2… #3 is great, too, though! You are so tiny!

    @Shae_Baby:  In that case, be true to yourself and stick with 1 or 2. Would your original salon refund your deposit since the dress won’t get here on time? If so, save some money and go with #2 because it looks just as good as #1. If not, negotiate the price lower for the sample dress and buy it, or pay their current price they are asking for the sample and negotiate free alterations.

    I voted for 1. You just look SO happy in that one, and it looks amazing. 2 dresses sizes shouldn’t be a big deal to alter. My dress was ordered incorrectly and had to be taken in 6 inches, which is at LEAST 2 sizes. The seamstress told me it’s not really any different to take in a dress 2 inches versus 6, so it shouldn’t change the price TOO much! Go for the dream dress!

    I prefer the first dress.  I think the second dress is too much for you.  I also love the simplicity of the hird dress.

    Well, you’re going to look gorgeous in whatever you wear, but I LOVE #1 on you!  It really does look perfect on you and I would think whatever discount they give you for buying the floor sample will probably cover the cost of alterations.  #2 is gorgeous as well.  I don’t like #3 at all – the skirt looks cheap to me and the middle somehow makes you look like you have a poochy belly, which you obviously do not have.

    @Shae_Baby:  #2!! Love the side flower detail.

     

    Do you mind me asking who the designer is for #1?

    My favourite is dress one.

    As they messed you around (taking a deposit and THEN telling you they can’t get it on time), and as the one they have in store will be a sample that’s been tried on, I’d be wanting them to sell me the sample and include alterations at no more than the original price; I think it’s worth arguing your point and seeing what they can do.

    I like 1 & 2, but voted for two because it’s similar to 1 & sounds like it will be easier. And you can take out some of the tulle on the bottom so you don’t feel as poofy! I’m doing that for mine & they said it’s such a simple change that they’d do it for free! You look gorgeous in all of them! All beautiful dresses!!

    I just noticed that you said you were looking in the bay area. Have you tried glamour closet? They have all samples of designer dresses so you would probably need alterations but you’d be getting a great deal on a designer dress & may save a lot of money. You can also call ahead & ask if they have your dress. I’m in the bay area too & just happened to walk into a store in downtown walnut creek that had a few samples on sale & got mine marked down from $1485 to $875. They’re called Flares in broadway plaza. They’re so nice & very reasonable on alterations too.

    Good luck!
