So I went to a small boutique shop in my MOH's town and tried on a few dresses with her.

When this shop opened 10 years ago about 60% of their business was wedding dresses but I guess now that the owner is older she's moving into ready to wear items.
Anyways they have a few wedding dresses left (only one rack on a half wall) and they are all 40% off.I tried on one that feels amazing, and the dress is almost perfect... Should i get this dress?! 1
Should i get this dress?! 2
Should i get this dress?! 3
Should i get this dress?! 4I love everything about this dress except the belt.The belt is sewn right to the dress (like rack bead is actually attached) I don't know if it would be worth it to remove, and alterations are very minimal. I don't know if I should keep looking or jump on this....

    Thanks, now that I've been to another salon I've realized that I spend too much time thinking about I'd love this dress if I could change X or Y. I think that comes from working in a local theatre most of my life and always having to repurpose items.

    I've thought of azazie but I'm the type of person who needs to try the clothes before I by them, the only place I buy clothes online I've shopped at for over a decade and can return the online items in store which is located right by my house.

    I have an appointment this weekend and am going into it with a new mindset, if I have to change the design of the original dress to love it, it isn't for me.

    I am late to the party, but If you aren't feeling it then move on. Its a beautiful dress and I personally like the belt, would look a bit empty without it.

    I tried on a few dresses I liked a lot "except for a few things" but on my dress I love everything and I just "knew" it was it. You don't want to buy it and have dress regret later! If you are looking for a lower budget but still good quality dress, try azazie ! bridesmaid dresses and beautiful wedding dresses for reasonable cost!

    If the belt is the only negative I'd go for it! You can always cover it up if it can't be removed, and there's a good chance a seamstress could remove it.

    It’s so hard to tell from the photo how attached it is. But I would guess most dresses with belts are made to be easily removed in alterations? Can you call the store and ask their opinion? They might know whether it’s possible or if it’s really stuck on there. But if you’re willing to add a ribbon you could definitely cover any small flaws from the belt.

    Hmmm, yeah I think I'm definitely looking for more reasons to not buy it. I've may have talked myself out of it over the course of this thread...

    Under 1000 is such a good price! I spent double that for my dress lol but you deserve to buy a dress you love!

    I'm also having trouble with the cost... though with the discount it'll be under a 1000, I've never spent more then $200 on a dress. I rarely spend money on clothes, a large chunk of my wardrobe is over 10 years old!

    I always hesitate with big purchases for myself, but making a big purchase for someone else is super easy for me.

    Wow that’s a really hard choice your going to have to make... I would go with your first gut feeling you had when you first saw yourself in that dress. If you absolutely loved it then in that moment I’d go for it! But that’s just me because I know I tend to question and over things and can hardly ever make a decision because I’m so bad at second guessing myself...

    Thanks 😊
    Still weighing the pros and cons. I can only hold it until the 15th.

    You look gorgeous! Did you end up going with it or did you choose to walk away?

    It's the belt part that's making me hesitate. If the belt was easily removable I would have bought it right then!!

    I'd definitely be ok with a ribbon... I didn't think about if it got damaged while removing, hmmm I may have to think about that.

    I think if you really love the dress then go for it! If you feel amazing in it and you love the price get it!!! You shouldn't worry about other peoples opinions!

    If it's perfect except for the belt and a great deal then I would probably go for it. Would you be open to a ribbon or something or a different belt if it turns out removing the belt will damage the dress?
