(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.

    Hey it’s free…Make an appointment to try on other things but definitely make the free dress a contender.

    Free would be what sold me!  I think that even if I didn’t love it, I could spend a couple hundred altering it to be a little more of what I want.  That way I didn’t spend nearly as much as I would have buying a dress, but I was still able to make it my own.  I would still go try on some dresses to get the experience (which is what I did.  I fell in love with a dress not available here or in my price range so I’m having someone make it for me.  I still went to a couple of salons to see what the shape would look like and to enjoy the experience.  You only get to do it once!)

    Free??  That’s definitely a HUGE incentive!

    You say you like it but it doesn’t have a “wow” factor.  I recommended trying on other dresses (only within your budget) and see if you get that feeling with any of them.  You may find that you are the type of bride that never gets that “this dress is THE one” feeling.  The reality is that there are a lot of pretty dresses and many will look good on you.

    That being said, the Watters dress is very pretty and I don’t think you can go wrong by choosing that one.

    As long as you don’t feel like you’re settling (ie, you really like the dress), then go for it!

    I would talk to the person who will handle the alterations – s/he may be able to add straps for example that will make the dress look closer to what you envisioned.  

    I would highly recommend trying on several styles of dresses before making a decision.  When I went dress shopping, I thought I knew what I wanted, but instead found that it just didn’t look great on me and I went with something I swore I would never wear.

    If you’re not comfortable in the dress though, you shouldn’t wear it.  Good luck!!

    I think if you try it on and love it- don’t keep looking because free is an AMAZING PRICE :o)

    Oh man, i didn’t read all the options. I change my vote to… if you’re not going to wear it, sell it to buy your dream dress! Its a win win here. You’re a lucky lady!!

    Oh my god. In a heartbeat.

    I wish I were in a position to turn down a $2,000 dress (wouldn’t).

    It’s not really the style I was looking for, but it is lovely.  If I were in your shoes, I would wear it!  (It may be the ole’ a-line strapless, but it has it’s own unique character-the scattered pearls, the waistline).
