So… When I was initially searching for a dress, I fell madly in love with dress A. I was certain it was my dress. However, the manufacturer ran me around about it and talked about how they didn’t know if it would be available again. (It wasn’t currently.) After keeping in touch for a few months, I gave up and found dress B, which I loved and bought.
Dress A is back now. It is available. It isn’t even expensive – I could treat myself to this and only feel a little bit bad. It would still go with all the accessories I got and everything.
Dress A, even with shipping, is discounted enough that it is literally within the range of an amount I could spend on myself just becaue I wanted to, not even because of a special occasion.
SOOOO I just bought it. I told myself it was worth avoiding a case of the whatifs, even though I have no idea what I’ll do with the one I don’t wear…

Oops, this was supposed to go in dress…

Heck yeah you did! Sell your other one and recoup some of the cost.

If dress A is the one you feel is the dress for you, I don’t see anything wrong with it. If you feel guilty enough about not wearing dress B, you could make it your reception dress. Nothing says you have to wear both of them.

Thanks for the responses… I even asked my FH (without him seeing anything, just hearing the numbers) about the situation, and he, the most frugal saver ever, said “yeah you don’t buy that much stuff for yourself, that’s a pretty reasonable amount, I’d probably do it.” Haha.
I might post pics when it arrives – maybe I’ll invite a friend over to take pics for me of both of them to decide the winner.

This is your wedding dress, it’s ok to spend a little extra to be happy with it! You can always sell dress B after the wedding (I’d keep it as backup for now) or donate it!
