    It might be easier to respond if you posted a picture of the dress and gave people a sense of how far out of your budget it is.  Sometimes there are other dresses very similar at a lower price that people will know about.  And sometimes people can tell you if you’ll be able to sell the dress after your wedding.

    If you’re not ready to buy, then don’t.

    There are so many gorgeous dresses out there and if this store has a sample, I’m sure other stores would have the sample too.

    If the sample does sell, then it wasn’t meant to be. Don’t fall for sales pressure.

    I personally wouldn’t pay for a dress, that is out of budget (even on discount) for a sample. I would rather a new dress, in my size, within my budget. But that’s just my opinion.

    Don’t forget with samples, you need to check for damage- missing beads, rips, dirt marks- and talk with a seamstress to see if fitting it to your size is do-able.

    I would say wait, and if, in a few months, you find yourself still in love with this dress, you go to OnceWed.com or eBay and buy the same dress from another bride.  Since it will be used, it should be cheap, and you could probably find one that’s actually in your size, too.  This way, if you change your mind, you won’t have a problem.  🙂

    You learned the #1 rule!  Don’t “just” try on anything above your price range. If after lots more shopping you decide this is still the dress, its very possible to find one used at the right price. 

    But dont buy it now and in the future only try on dresses within your price range.

    @lizzbizz45:  Try looking on used dress websites, like oncewed or preownedweddingdresses if you are truly in love with this dress.  You may be able to find one in your size, and for atleast 50% off…. 

    I’ve found it on preownedweddingdresses – its cheaper than the salon is trying to charge you. So go and look!  It’s listed at 2000.  You don’t mention your size, but heres the link: http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/30059/Lazaro-LZ3002-Size-8.html

    i would keep an open mind and keep looking – i would also keep an eye out on the classified boards or oncewed.com for the lazaro dress used in case you can’t get the sample at a later date.

    Don’t buy it.  You tried on one dress!  Go try on some more! You’ll find another one you love.  There are a lot of cons with this dress anwyay:

    • over your budget
    • way too big and alterations could ruin it
    • alterations will add to the price which is already over your budget
    • you would be making the purchase under duress : ( not good

    Walk away!

    the dress is pretty but it will blow your budget.  don’t do it.  coming from someone who has purchased 4 dresses, you will find something else you like as much or more than the lazaro dress.  i would never pay more that 50% for a sample (and that’s for a sample in good condition).  the dress is from spring 2010 so you should start seeing more show up on the preowned wedding dress sites.

    remember wedding dress cardinal rule number 1: don’t try on a dress you cannot afford.
