I decided in the beginning that I did not want to drop a third of my budget on my gown that I would wear once. I just didn't even go into the salons. I didn't want to be tempted. A friend of mine dropped 4K on her dress and now two years later she said that when she thinks of the cash she dropped on her dress it makes her feel sick. But at the time she was so caught up in the moment. I remembered that story when I went dress shopping and it just reassured me that I didn't want to spend too much on my dress. BUT, if you go and try dresses on again and still, the scarlet is just THE ONE, then I say go for it. If you are going to have regrets about not getting it, then just do it. It is your wedding day and you only will have one. It is a gorgeous gown and I know you'll be able to sell it if you can part with it after...it's hard. You sort of get attached to your dress after the wedding.
All I'm saying is just think about it and be 100% sure. Have ou thought of buying the one off the rack? They will usually discount it.
