Hi brides. So I put 300 down in aN Alfred Angelo dress. They said that it’s in. Awesome right! No. I’m starting to second guess if this was the right dress or not. So my question is what if I didn’t want this dress and decided to not pick it up. What are there polices about this. Will I have to owe the 1100 left?? Or can I never pick it up again.

@fairytaleprincess45: I believe you’ll get charged the $1100 for the dress. I had a bridesmaid who came very close to not picking up her dress and paying off the balance. When I asked the sales associate what would happen if she did not pay, she said that she would be sent to collections for not paying off the dress. I was also getting calls from Alfred Angelo asking for me to pay off the balance for the bridesmaid, which was annoying.

As per AA’s policies, you should have left a credit card on file if you only paid the 60%. When the dress gets to the store, they will check it to make sure everything looks like it should and then charge the card… sometimes without a head’s up.
Hope everything works out!

Before you panic, try your dress on again! I see this happen to brides frequently; it’s very easy to overthink and question your decision. I bet you will like the dress a lot more than you think you will, and remember that dresses are always much more flattering after they’ve been altered as well, so stay calm and let yourself be open to falling back in love with your dress. If you decide you absolutely cannot wear it to get married in, call the shop and ask them about their policies. A few shops have an exchange policy, even if it is not advertised… However, because these gowns are often custom-ordered items, they may not let you return or exchange it. If you are responsible for paying off the dress and picking it up, at least you can re-sell it and recoup some of your losses.
