Found the most amazing dress today but over budget!!!!

I found the most amazing Mori Lee dress today which fitted perfectly apart from the length.  The problem is it is over budget by 25%.  Is it worth asking if I can buy at a discount the sample dress even though it is a current design

    My dress was also over budget and when i said i couldnt decide between 2 (one was £500 cheaper) the shop said they couldnt match it but took £300 off it on the spot and i brought it!! I decided that i would borrow a veil and tiara to save money on accessories to have the dress of my dreams!!

    My dress was over budget too but I'm borrowing my mums veil and I just bought cheap shoes so I don't feel so bad about it. if its the perfect dress its worth it but phone round different stockists because there were £300 of difference in prices and I was able to negotiate free alterations too so you might save there too

    My dress was flipping heaps over budget but when I said that, they knocked ??300 off the cost and then I've made savings on my veil, shoes, jewellery etc. was worth it! See if they'll take a bit off for you? No harm asking!x

    Could you not ring around diff shops and ask if they have it and see if you can haggle price down somewhere or get a sample dress from a diff shop?

    MissVMrsB this is pretty much exactly what happened to me!! Also made savings on jewellery there is definatly room for negotiation in bridal shops dont be afraidimage I would rather beg borrow steal everything else but the dress was important to me!

  • Mine is a Mori Lee 1901 and was over budget but the shop sold me the sample and knocked £250 off it with free alterations. Still over budget but was happy to find the extra I needed as I love it image
