Over budget for the right dress????
Just curious to hear of anyone who has gone over budget for their dream wedding dress and not regretted it afterwards?
I first tried on a couple of dress last February at a wedding fayre, but didn't really think any of them did anything for me.
Fast forward to November last year and after cancelling a couple of appointments at shops where my budget wouldn't allow me to shop, I went to House of Mooshki and had a dress designed for me for what was at that time, my October 2016 wedding.
We decided to postpone our wedding due to other priorities and in pushing it back a year I felt I wanted to get the whole dress shopping experience so I cancelled my order from HoM.
At this point, I will say I think I've looked TOO much at dresses and watched too many SYTTD and so just lost my way with what I wanted, but I was constantly lusting after one particularly dress.
Anyway, I booked an appointment for last weekend at a designer day and tried on 3 dresses, all of which just didn't do ignite anything in me, I looked through the racks and everything just seemed samey samey and nothing was jumping out at me. However, they did have the dress in that I'd been lusting after, but as it is new season, there wasn't a price on the label but I decided to try it on anyway.
WRONG DECISION! I was overawed, I was speechless, the owners were speechless, I got butterflies, I didn't want to take it off, I keep dreaming about this dress and thinking about it all the time. One problem, it is nearly double what I have budgeted! My H2B has said "if you think it's the one, then you will have it". I have looked at our budget and we can cut down in places (places that will affect me not my H2B) which will enable me to double my dress budget but I'm still struggling with spending that much money on a dress.
I argue with myself that it'll be worth it, that I'm not going to do this again, that I never spend any money on myself and I highly doubt I'm going to find a dress that even matches this one, let alone betters it.
I just don't know what to do so I'm interested to hear from people who have taken plunge.
