Ok…Im on the verge of tears here! I called three shops that carry Demetrios and none of them have this style number….and Ive falling in love with the picture of the dress and I sooo badly want to try it on!!! I have one more store that I can call tomorrow…they are closed right now….so heres hoping, praying, and wishing they have it! I dont even know if I will like it on me…I just want to try it on…it looks so elegant…I WANT IT!!! What can I do if this store doesnt carry it? Can I ask them, since they do carry some Demetrios, to order it? It’s a Spring 2009…so shouldnt one of these shops that carry the name have it in their store since…hey its Spring 2009? EHH!

Most stores can have a sample dress ordered. You sometimes have to pay around $100 to cover shipping. If you don’t end up liking the dress, then it becomes one of the store’s sample gowns. If you do like it, then, well it becomes your dress.
Your only other option would be to call some shops in surrounding cities to see if they have the sample and then see if one of the stores by you can borrow the sample dress. Do you have a Demetrios boutique in the area or a close city? Most of the Demetrios bridal shops have just about EVERY dress in their collections. Go to the Demetrios website to find one.

Thanks. The only ones I found in my area are just bridal shops…but I saw some ones in NJ that are Demetrios Macy’s Bridal Salon? I looked on Macy’s Bridal website and I didnt see the Demetrios name on there. But Im hoping to call the shop near me named Sposabella that was closed tonight and hopefully they will carry a sample. If they dont then I will call the ones in NJ only after I try on other dresses if Im not happy with any of them. But if I dont try this dress on I know it will always be in the back of my mind! Even if I dont like it when I have it on me…its just the fact of knowing I got to try it on! Shouldnt these other ones that carry the name have it since its a Spring 2009? How does that work?

You might also consider attending a Demetrios Trunk show They often bring dresses that aren’t in stock at local stores or dresses that are hard to find.
There doesn’t appear to be one in PA soon, but there will be one at the Macy’s Bridal Salon you mentioned in NJ. One in Wayne and one in Edison:

@D.MArie- please tell me the price of the dress when you find it out.I’m from Romania, Europe and we have very few shops in Ro plus the dress is much more expensive in our shops. I have also fallen in love with 4262…. if you get to try it on please post some pics

@LIQIAMN: isnt the dress beautiful!! The price on Brides.com says it’s between $1,000 and $1,500. A little over my budget…but I still want her!!! At least to try her on. I called the last shop today near me and they dont carry her…:(…very sad. They said I should call Demetrios…which is what I plan to do…to see if they know of any shops in my area that carry her. I asked them if I could special order a sample to their shop but they said by doing that it becomes my dress…and I dont want to do that without trying it on. But I need to find her! Anyone know where she is?!
