    I've tried a few dresses on over the last few weeks, more of a laugh than anything as I didn't really expect to find on I wanted this early. Anyway I'd tried about 12 on and not loved any of them. I looked online and fell in love with Mori Lee 1866. I couldn't stop thinking about it and kept looking at it online every day so I decided I had to try it on just to shut myself up!

    So I went and tried it on today - nowhere local had it in stock to try on so it was £12 and an hour on the train but it was worth it - OMG, I tried it on and it was amazing. The shop sample fit me SO well, the lady said it was like it has been made to fit me and she doubted I'd even need any alterations with that size (although I want to lose some weight).

    It was just amazing, I didn't want to take it off and I keep getting butterflies when I think of it! It's a LOT more than I had budgeted for a dress but I know that nothing else will match up now. Thing is my wedding isnt til June 2014 so is it too soon to decide 100%? I just keep thinking that I'm not going to love anything else as much as this dress.

    God it's expensive though, my friend said I should ask for discount but can you even do that? I'd feel so cheeky! xx

    Oh good not just me then lol!

    I was actually planning on finding one I liked then getting one of the Chinese makers to make it but I dont even think I'm going to do that now, the dress I want has so much detailing on it I dont think a Chinese dress could ever match up to it or look even a little bit similar!

    Is it this one hun? It's beautiful! If you are dead set on it then go for it! Could you get it as a sample dress then get it cheaper?

    if you get the sample dress then you will get it cheaper if she will sell it to you hun and its never too early to get it. if you can't have the sample them ask her if you can pay a deposit and pay in installments to spread the cost hun

    Does the store do payment plans, allowing you pay it bit by bit monthly?

    If you think its the one then pay for it monthly, but dont look at any other dresses afterwards, thats where it gets dangerous! Its a beautiful dress though! x

    Thanks for all your help, well I emailed the lady at the store where I would order it from and explained it was over budget etc and she has said she will knock £100 off it if I order through her so that’s good! She’s a really nice lady too and out of all the shops I’ve been to to try on dresses I had the nicest experience at her one :-)

    I really think I’m going to go for it, I can’t get that flippin dress out of my head lol, I look at others and nothing comes close to how much I love that one! The lady said she would do a payment plan too so even better xx

    So long as the style isn't going to be discontinued soon (in which case you could get shop samples maybe) then you can leave ordering it for a while. Have a look and see if you can get it second hand, you might just find yourself a bargain on a 'preloved' dress.

    My worry would be that I'd fall out of love with it or see something I like more, but thats the only reason I wouldn't want to buy early, your concerns of it being discontinued are every bit as valid. To be honest if I was in your boat I would probably go for the payment plan... you cant hold out for the possibility that you could get it cheaper or second-hand, it sounds like you know your mind already!

    I bought mine a while ago for my oct 14 wedding. its the only dress i tried on and i fell instantly in love with it and found it in a sale and as i had tried it on thought id get it as i would enver afford it at full price. i think once you know you know and stop looking i have and i had it out yesterday to check my shoe colouring and still love it and it just looks fantastic makes me so curvy and femine :)

    Ahh I'm feeling all nostalgic looking through my old posts.. I remember being so excited about this dress! It's now hanging in my wardrobe and I wish I could wear it again! I'm luckier than some as we had a UK reception when we got back from Greece so I got to wear it twice
