I Love A Dress Online That's Set To Be Discontinued

Recommended Posts

I found this dress online http://www.allurebridals.com/products/9016 and I think it's gorgeous, but it's set to be discontinued this fall, and my wedding isn't even confirmed yet for Nov 2015. 

 

I'm tempted to go check it out, but I'm sure it's out of my price range based on prices for similar dresses by the same designer. Do you think that when it's discontinued I'll be able to find one online somewhere for a discount? I could go try it on at a local place and then if I still love it once I try it on, I can try to find one for cheaper online (or made in China?) but I'm worried about falling in love with a dress I can't afford. Or worse, convincing myself that I can afford it!

Pretty! I would personally go check out dresses in person, in an area near you. I also just like seeing things in person better. There are beautiful dresses everywhere. You can even take this pic into a wedding dress shop and see what they have similar, that is in your price range!

I fell in love with my discontinued dress a bit over a year before my wedding and I got it on sale because it was the sample gown. Maybe call around to the shops and if they have it ask how much it is. Then if it's in your price range try it on, if not, try to find another dress with a similar style or buy a knock off one from China :)

Try it on now to confirm you love it. If you do, see if you can buy the sample right away. My dress was discontinued about a month after I purchased the sample due to not enough time for an order. I am SO thankful I was able to get my dream dress and at a price I could afford as the order would've been over my budget. I've been married a year and a half and i still get butterflies when i look at my dress in the closet.

I bought my online and will just make the necessary alterations to it. Sometimes it is so much cheaper online that its worth it to pay the alterations.

The alternative is a website that sells both new, sample and used gowns. I would say go try it on and make sure you really do love it, along with a few others just to be sure. Then you could always check here: www.preownedweddingdresses.com  Some of the prices can be as much as 70% of what the original price is. Good luck!

My dress was to be "discontinued" and 3 months later it's still being sold, and at a cheaper price.   

 

If you have almost a year till your wedding, I wouldn't rush into buying something.  Especially if you haven't even tried on dresses, and it's the first dress you want.

 

I bought my "dream" dress, and ended up trading it in for another one. 

 

There are so many options out there, also try preownedweddingdresses.com :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
