          I feel your pain...I thought my first dress at $350 was a lot for a DW. Then I found the second one. *dreamy sigh* And with alterations it's over $800.

          But every time I think about my dress I just feel like I'm floating and I look at the pictures I took in the fitting room. I've even been to visit my dress at the alterations shop. (Yeah, I like it that much!)

          So I say if you LOVE it then go for it!

            That dress is a short-stopper. I would be all over that! Its your day and if I had to splurge on anything it would be that dress. Some dresses are able to be dublicated. That's not one of them.

                have you gotten an quote online from netbride.com or Pearl's Place? I ordered my dress online, saved $300, and it came early! (now I sound like an infomercial...)

                  My best friend found a dress she addored and could not afford it so she found the exact dress on ebay for like 1/4 of the price! Anther friend of mine is really really tiny like a size zero and she bought a nicole miller dress for $600 they made her order a size 8 and just altered the dress to fit her. She looked stunning and it fit like it was made for her. It was a very delecate silk like this dress on your thread. So I would say not to worry about exact size when looking on ebay. =) Hope this helps

                    I have emailed about 7 different online places so far. I have seen a couple replica's and so far haven't seen one I am happy with. I am waiting to hear back from a few more online stores......I am so close to just ordering it....My FI will forgive me lol :)

                      I say that you only go around once (hopefully). Splurge on that dream dress. Cut back on other accessories if need be. You are probably saving quite alot by doing a destination wedding instead of the traditional at home. So use that extra money and buy what you really want.
