Plus-Sized

Went Dress shopping for the 1st time!!!!

I went to David's Bridal today with one of my BMs and fell in love but I am soooo torn. There are 2 gowns and one is very simple and the other is just stunning and they are both the same price but both are over my budget. LMAO go figure! I also see online that they have gowns in the outlet section real cheap and now that I know my size I don't know if I should just go with what I know I can afford or with what Im in love with. Either way they all have to still be altered so that's still more money on top. WWYD??

(ps. the outlet store gown looks like my dress number but with strap at half the price lol)

  • Go with what you're in love with, people say it's like falling in love with your fiance. Do you have pictures?

    if you can swing it, go with the one you loved, not the outlet one.  Also, consider seeing if you can find "the" dress on the used market. David's Bridal dresses sell for very cheap when they are pre-owned. Unless it's a brand new style, you may be able to find it for a couple hundred dollars on the used market.

     

  • Never buy a dress online that you haven't tried on in person first or you risk being disappointed... Go with your gut... even if you have to take a little money from another part of your budget to pay for the dress it's your day and you should feel amazing in it!

  • This is your day... it's your fairytale princess moment... your happily ever after, go with what you love!  I too went to DB, they have a one shoulder Oleg Cassini that I am in LOVE with!
  • I think Im going to o with the one I love after I get my MOH and My Titi Wanda (more like my mom) to come with me and help me decide and maybe try on a couple of other options that I saw online. Thank ladies and will post with pics when I finally do decide :D

  • I guess for me it would depend on how far out of budget it was and if I could make up the amount that I have to pay extra for.  I had to up my dress budget and considering again once I found out just how expensive dresses were.  (I had NO clue!).
