    If you have help from your mom, get some drugs in your body and get your butt over there and try that dress on for her. When she loves it as much as you do, she will tell you to buy it. So no excuses, take some pain killers and just go. Go on your lunch or leave early or something, but GO.

      Oh, she's seen it on me and agrees that it is the nicest, but she can't get past the price tag even though I am paying the difference. I have the bridal salon calling me back with a final price and I think I am just going to buy it, cuz the thought of that other girl buying it makes me want to cry

        Thanks a lot, Julie! I had to call and put a deposit on the dress. I mean I was already freaking out that the other girl was going to buy it, but seriously, I am not going to get a better discount then 40% off! The good thing is, they only required a deposit and will accept a payment plan, so I put the deposit and tomorrow I go in to sign the contract. Yay! It is what I should'be done in the first place.

            WOOO HOOO

            I am so so so happy that you got the dress you loved. You have to post the picture again cause now I don't remember which one it was. When you go in to sign the contract, take your camera and take a pic of you in it. We ALL want to see the dress that you fell in love with.

            With your mom paying $1000 and the 40% off discount, you still need to make a payment plan? I am scared, what did I talk you into.

            Just kidding, its the dress you love and you have lots of time to pay it off. And, hopefully you can sell it after.

            Contratulations on getting the dress you love.

              It sounds like this is the dress you really really want. If the thought of another girl buying it upsets you, then that's a sure sign. I'm so happy for you and can't wait to see pictures...yeah

                Well, I don't HAVE to do a payment plan, but once it is fully paid, I have to store it. So I figure if I work out a plan, they will keep it safe for me for a few months. If I was to take it home tomorrow, it would have to stay at my parents house with 4 dogs and 2 kids under 4, so it would be in danger every day. My neice LOVES to dress up. So I am figuring that the longer I can get them to store it for me, the better!

                I DO feel much better. I love this dress. I don't look in the mirror and think, "it is going to look so good when I lose 10 lbs". I look in the mirror and just BEAM. No negative thoughts about it at all. I am not sure if I can/will get pics tomorrow though. Tonight we are having our "block party" and tomorrow I have a pretty full day, so if I am hungover and all bleery eyed, I ain't doing it! But the shop is only a few miles from my house, so I can stop by another time for pics. I think it is too much money, but any other dress would have been settling.

                  I am so happy that you are so happy. This is how you are supposed to feel about your dress, not the way you felt about the ebay one.

                  I think thats an awesome idea, paying it slowly so they have to hold it. Good call.

                  If you are hung over, take pics where we can't see your face. lol A lot of people on here do that. No worries, we will know its you.

                  Beaming - that is exactly how its supposed to be.

                      Thanks me too! I hope all is well on your end. Still figuring out the details?

                      You know, I think this board put the scare into me. I had a dream last night that my ring crumbled apart (from the thread about loose stones), and I also dreamt that I was pregnant! Boy, I woke up twice last night FUH-REAKING out!
