Generally, once you put down a deposit, the dress is yours. The store that ordered it is obligated to pay for it, hence the non refundable deposit.

When you paid the deposit, wasn’t there any legal jargon/return policy info on the paperwork?  My receipt has all that info clearly stated when my mom put down the deposit on my dress.  I think @MayaBean is right; once you put down the deposit, the dress is yours.  I hope they work with you though!

There is usually a provision in the contract to forfeit the deposit. Which dress is it?

@mpilipow2013:  I have worked at a bridal salon and we had 2 options when a bride didn’t want her gown. You could either forfeit your deposit and the salon keeps the dress or you can pay the remaining amount and try to sell the gown yourself. You will usually save more money if you buy the gown and then try to sell it, but there is always the risk that you won’t be able to sell it. Just contact the salon you ordered it from and see what their policy is. Best of luck!

@mpilipow2013:  Call the store you ordered it from and ask – I bet every store has their own policy.  I doubt it has anything to do with the designer itself and everything to do with the store you ordered it from.

In my case I still had to pay for the dress in full unfortunately.

@mpilipow2013: That dress is gorgeous, but finding someone your size to buy it is the difficult part. Some bridal salons won’t let you forfeit the deposit, because then they are stuck with your dress that they will probably have to sell at a cheaper price as a sample gown. Hopefully they will let you forfeit the deposit. Maybe search online and see if anyone is trying to sell the same gown online and how much they are asking for it. What is the new gown you are wanting?

@mpilipow2013:  Ok just saw – you got the Mori Lee and the Dabra is giving you dress regret.  Honestly, I think the Mori Lee is STUNNINGLY gorgeous.  I’m just like you – debating between the ruffles and the lace – wish I could find a dress that has both the way I like it!  I think both dresses are beautiful, but have you even tried on the Dabra?  Do you even know if it will look good on you?  Perhaps you can ask the seamstress if there’s any way to add lace to the bust of the Mori Lee if lace is what you’re after?
