- Wedding: August 2013
So in October I went to the bridal store where I ended up buying my dress. I was told at the time that this was Alfred Angelo’s Spring 2013 collection and because it was his trunk show, the dress would not been in the store for more than another two weeks. My consultant said my dress wasn’t in any other stores around yet, and that it was so new that I wouldn’t even be able to find pictures of it online, so I’d better take a picture now!
So anyway, that very night after I bought the dress I naturally searched for it and TADA there is was on AA’s website 🙁 I thought to myself, well she probably honestly thought that it wasn’t online yet, but it IS from the Spring collection, so I will be one of the first to have tried on this dress and wear it next year. So I went about my merry way.
Now, my bridal salon is located right across the street from my job (like, literally), so I peer in every so often. And I could of sworn it was more than two weeks later, and my dress was STILL there. I thought, “meh, I’ve probably lost track of time, or I misheard her.” It didn’t really bug me too much. Subsequently the second to last time I looked in there, the dress was no longer hanging on the trunk show rack.
A couple of weeks ago, my consultant’s twin came in to my office and I happened to serve her. We talked about my dress and she said “Oh, yes, I know which one you are talking about, and it’s not in the store anymore!” So I felt good that someone else had confirmed that the dress was just part of a trunk show. And yes, they are identical twins and work at the same store as consultants 😉
Then, just yesterday, I peered into the store again after work, and low and behold, I saw my dress on a different rack!
Now, I love my dress for sure, and I am almost happy they have it because I might go try it on again, but my question is…
Did my bridal store lie to me? Or is it possible that it was part of a trunk show only, in October, and that it is now a regular dress in the store only two and a half months later?
Please tell me they weren’t lying to me because I loved my experience there, and my consultant and her sister are both very nice.
