(Closed) Would you wear a free dress?

  • poll: Would you wear the free Watters style 5025B?

    Yes. Are you kidding me? A free dress!

    Maybe. You might want to try on others first before making a decision.

    No. It doesn't have the "wow" factor you are going for and/or I don't care for it.

    Sell it to buy your dream dress.

    Oh if you can rock it you should wear it!  I love the dots and it really is so sweet and romantic.  The bottom is awesome too.  What a great story you would have to tell too!

    If you like it, go for it! I think it has less to do with the “free” aspect of it, than the “do you LOVE it” aspect.

    It’s a very pretty dress, and you’re right the savings would really come in handy for other things.  But, you should go and try on other dresses so that you don’t feel cheated from the experience and you never know you may find something much less within your budget that you absolutely love.

    oh wow I think it’s stunning!! but if you don’t love it, you don’t love it, you know?  i think you  should love the dress that you wear and not look back and think that you should have something else or you should have spent the money. take your time and look around and try on different dresses. you may keep coming back to this one, you know…

    you know, the fact that its free shouldnt be looked at as a negative at all…Thats a HUGE bonus!  You say its not THAT flattering on you, but keep in mind its not yet been altered to you, and even the smallest of alterations will make a huge difference.  I’d try on some other dresses first just to be positive, but I think that dress is very elegant and beautiful.  Paired with a cathedral veil?  Wow.  Gorgeous

    It’s awesome that it was free! If it were me I’d resell it @ a lower price and buy a different dress, cause that one isn’t my style. But, if you love it and it’s a style you like, I don’t see why you shouldn’t wear it!

    It is a very beautiful dress. That said, if you don’t love it, then don’t wear it. You need to be happy and comfortable on your wedding day.

    It’s a wonderful dress and you’re so lucky to be offered a free dress! Why don’t you meet with someone who does alterations to see if they could do anything to make it the type of dress you want? Even if it cost a couple hundred dollars it would still be worth it.

    I agree that you should go shopping so you can get the experience of being a bride and so you can try on some of the dresses that you thought you’d like. Sometimes what you thought you’d like isn’t what looks best on you.

    If you find one you love then I’d go with Rainbow’s route and sell the Watters one to help pay for a new one.

    You’ve got a win-win situation! (1) Sell the dress to help pay for another OR (2) Wear that dress and use your money on something that you’ll wear everyday – like that band that you want! It’s up to you though. Sit on it; you don’t have to fight off other brides-to-be like at sample sales! 😛
