I know I can get it dry cleaned and it will be like new but I'm having a hard time committing to something that's pretty much full price but isn't new. Hmmm decisions decisions.........
I'm off to try on more dresses this week and it might make my decision on the previous dress more clear. Time is getting on. I better kick it into high gear or I might be wearing my bathing suit to get married. hahaha!
Hope all is well with everyone else.
Good luck on your shoot today Kay.
Ask for a discount if you are buying it off the rack. I purchased mine off the rack and worked it down from $1150 plus taxes (which would have been close to $1400) to $1000 taxes included - at first they said they'd give it to me $1150 taxes included and then I said I'd think about it - called them back and asked if I paid cash could they give me a better deal and she said the lowest she could go was $1000 taxes included and of course I took it! Mine was brand new from this year and I think I am the one who tried it on the most... but most bridal salons will lower the price on off the rack dresses. I had a friend of mine haggle hers down from like 2000$ to like $1200 (that was in a salon in Montreal) so they might have had more wiggle room, but I wouldn't be shy to ask for a discount and if you can afford it offer to pay cash because visa transactions are costly for businesses.
I am super excited to finally see the dress you pick! And good luck with the rest of your dress appointments. Once I found the one I didn't want to try more on, but I did to make absolute sure, but in the end I kept comparing it to "the dress" and never felt the same in any other one.
And worse comes to worst getting married in your bathing suit wouldn't be the worst thing lol!
