    I dont think I’d ask to buy it. I’d comment on the picture about how you love the dress and ask her to message you to talk about it. If she offers up the dress for sale, fine. But buy your own and alter it that way.

    I think it would be okay to message her. After complimenting her amazing taste, just ask if she’s considered selling it, as you’d be interested.

    I messaged someone about their dress just like this, she never replyed I don’t know if her setting were to high and it may have never got to her

    in the end I ended up finding my own dress new

    Maybe a little creepy, yes, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.


    She might not be willling to sell her dress, but if she is nice and willing to help a bride (YOU), she might be still be able to give you some good pointers on how to go about altering the dress.


    ANother thing is to consider is that you might have loved how this dress looked on HER, but you need to try it on and love it in YOU first.  This is why you should try on similar dresses first.
