@CocoClassic:  I was going to ask the same thing peachacid did… can you buy the sample?

As others said, offer to buy the sample.  If it’s discontinued, that means the sample is now worthless to shop owners, so there should be a few around to purchase.  Otherwise, you could try a preowned site.

+1 to the PPs. The alternative dress she suggested for you IS really spectacular, but so is the one you fell in love with in the first place! I’d definitely look into purchasing the sample. If the shop owner will refund you the entire purchase price, you can even look elsewhere for a sample. Would you considering purchasing the dress used? 

ETA: I just saw that you posted about the sample being way too big.  🙁  Is it possible that another store would have the sample in a smaller size? I know you don’t want to take your business away from this gracious lady, but maybe you can purchase a sample elsewhere and take it to her for alterations?

@CocoClassic:  Well, those dresses look VERY similar. I’m sure you will find another amazing dress. But, while is it impossible to buy the sample you tried? I myself just purchased a dress that has discontinued. I had to call several places to get my size and luckily I found. But I was going to buy a little big dress that I tried on and get it altered if I couldn’t find the size.

BTW you look so sexy and I’m sure you’ll rock so many dresses 🙂

On Google, it seems that the Sincerity dresses have numbers rather than names.  Do you know the number of your dress?

That mori lee is one of my favorite dresses on the market right now, so I definitely say give it a try!

Could you get it second hand? I do love the second dress too though. Definately go and try it on. There’s a lot of dresses around right now that are that shape. You’ll find another you love!

If I can remember correctly, I think that Mori Lee is well below $1,000. So it wouldn’t mess up your budget to try it on!

I would try on the Mori Lee. It looks very similar.

@CocoClassic:  – These are my suggestions:

1. Try on the suggested dress just to see.

2. Have a seamstress make the dress you want.

3. Try craigslist or a preowned website (got my gown from a preowned website for less than a third of the actual cost and it was never worn but the previous owner)
