    Ladies, I need some input on what to do... I had bought a dress from Kleinfeld's on their sample sale day, my future mother-in-law (who retired as owner of a bridal salon & who will be doing my alterations) was supposed to be there to help me find "the dress" but dropped out last minute, so it was just me and my mom. Well things started off ok but then I began to feel really rushed and ended up buying a dress that is just HORRIBLE everytime I look at it I cry and to make matters worse my future mother-in-law says we can't do some alterations that we were needing to do! So I am stuck with a $1400.00 dress that makes me cry!! Why did I do this... Does anyone have any suggestion my wedding is in JUNE........

    Been there, done that I did cry. Many, many times. And then I bought a second dress.
    It was terrible, but it had to be done. I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror with that dress on, much less look at my wedding pictures for years. I just couldn't.

    So, I tried to sell the dress I bought and bought a new one.

    Good luck!

      I agree with Tiseege. If you feel that strongly about that dress then maybe it's time to put it up for sale. In the meantime hit up bridal salons looking for the dress that WILL make you smile on your big day.

          Been there done that! Lol I still havent been able to sell the first dress i bought but trust me it was so worth it to get the dress of my dreams! Do what makes you happy, usually Kleinfeld's dresses sell fast so id definitely use all the vehicles available to make that sale possible and get you a gown you LOVE!

            i agree with the ladies hon. this is one of those situations where you might have to cut another part of the budget to get the dress you really want. the dress will be in pics and videos FOREVER and it will be a HUGE part of the memories you have of your wedding. the dress you hate, might be the one someone really loves!! so get out there and shop shop shop, remember you'll need time for alterations and stuff!! good luck :)

                    I too say go for it... and get the dress you want!! You don't want to be looking back at pics years from now wishing you'd done it differently!! Good luck with deciding!!
