    So I am in for my fitting on Saturday and everyone is ranting and raving over the dress the girl in the room next to me is trying on. I managed to break free of my seamstress to peek around the corner and fell in LOVE with this dress! Of course I already have a dress so I sweated it out until the girl left and made my mom grab it for me to try on. It fits like a glove and they offered to sell it to me for 25% off. What to do, what to do...

    IT is sooooooooooooooooo cute and fun and flirty with a little feather detail at the top and a great hemline. Can I possible justify a second dress for my AHR? After all it is going to be in Wisconsin in February...

      If you can afford it, I say go for it. I, of course, am all for being a 2 dress bride as I am one myself! Sales are especially hard to pass up...
      By the way, love the dress:)

        I agree - if you fell in love with it, then you should be able to enjoy it! Like Sarah said, if you can afford it, then you should go for it! And you can always sell them afterwards to get some of the $$ back (that's what I keep telling myself anyway - not sure I will be able to sell!).

              Maybe you can sell your first dress on one of the millions of websites to re-coup some $$...

              I don't know I think it's a tough decision that only you can really make (sorry!). But I can only answer as if i were in the situation and this is what I would ask myself...

              1. How much extra am I spending? Can I afford it?
              2. Was I going to wear the same dress for my AHR?
              3. How different is the second dress from the one I have now?
              4. On a scale of 1 to 10 how much will I regret it on the actual day of the wedding... maybe you'll regret it or maybe it won't even cross your mind...
              5. If you DO buy it will you have to save somewhere else or not? If you would then what part of the budget do you plan on taking it from..
              6. if I DON'T buy it what could I do witht he money instead?
              7. Can I find a way to earn some of my money back? Would I be able to sell them afterwards?

                  Kash- your questions crack me up. You must be super analytical like me :)

                  You see the thing is that I definitely would still wear my original dress to the wedding in Cabo and then the new dress to my AHR in Wisco so I wouldn't sell the original. The new one is much more wintry and I might actually sell that one after the fact.

                  Here is the link to the original, which I love equally! They are totally different.

                  And ummmm our budget from our parents is already completely blown so the affordability factor depends on your perspective. I guess it depends on whether we get any cash gifts otherwise I will have to shift some things around for a couple months. Not fun, but can be done.

                    Thanks for posting the link to your other dress. NOW I remember your dress- I knew it was something really unusual, I just couldn't quite picture it. I don't know, it's a hard choice, they're both really pretty! I guess, not to be bold, but are we talking several hundreds of $$ or several thousands for your new one? I have no idea what Pronovias' cost, I've never looked at them.

                      I know - I'm such a dork! What the hell, you only live once - the two dresses ARE really different - and both super cute and fun! Let us know what you decide!
