I won a competition to put £1000 towards a wedding dress - but what if I don't find 'the one'?
So I’ve won a competition where I get £1000 off a dress from a particular designer. When I signed up to the competition I didn’t think I would actually win! Their dresses are quite expensive, they range from £1800-£3300 and I have a dress budget of £2000 so I could potentially still spend a large amount of my budget on a dress. I now feel pressured to buy my dress from this designer and I’m looking through the designs online and well… they’re nice but I’m not sure they’re going to be 100% for me until I try them on. If I don’t fall in love with one of their dresses, I’m going to feel really guilty that I’ve taken that opportunity from someone else.
So I’m looking for some opinions. Would you settle for a dress that wasn’t quite what you envisioned because you’re getting a massive discount? After all, it’s a dress for one day! Or would you ignore the prize money and only get a dress if it was ‘the one’ and if it has £1000 off then that’s a bonus?
