Can I ask what the reason is for the bridal shop keeping the designer of your dress from you?  I find it odd that they wouldn’t tell you if you are buying it.

First off – GORGEOUS dress! But second – why in the heck won’t the dress shop tell you the designer of the dress? Did you purchase it yet…? If so, I don’t see why they wouldn’t tell you, that seems just downright stupid. I understand them not wanting a potential customer to know the designer in case they decide to shop around for prices, similar styles, or make a replica, but once it’s paid for you none of that should matter.

I was told the same thing by a bridal shop here in NJ….then I saw the dress on SYTTD Atlanta.  It turned out to be a “Marisa” gown.

If you shared about how much the dress was, that would probably narrow down the designer…

So, you purchased the dress and they still wont tell you?  That’s weird.  The bridal store I went to wouldn’t tell me the designer until I agreed to purchase (which was annoying, but at least they told me). 

Did you buy it off the rack or are they going to order it?

Its so funny how the shop owners can have such different philisophies!  The boutique I went to actually had the dresses sectioned off by designer, with their names on a placard above them. I can see why other shops avoid that though – I gravitated towards designers I knew (Amsale, Anne Barge, etc) and totally ignored the Marisa section because I’d never heard the name.  After I tried on a few that I either didn’t love or were too expensive, she led me over to the Marisa section and BOOM there was my dress!!

I read this book called bridal bargains: http://www.amazon.com/Bridal-Bargains-Throwing-Fantastic-Realistic/dp/1889392391/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1317235068&sr=1-1

And after reading it, I’d say that If the bridal shop won’t tell you the designer its probably for one of two reasons:

1) They’re overpricing it and they dont want you to go online and find out what price others are buying it for

2) They don’t want you to find out what dress it is and decide to find it in another boutique and buy it there instead.

 

The boutique i bought my dress from wasn’t hesitant to tell me the designer and style, and they’ve been awarded for best prices in 2010 by the knot.

@agrajek:

ahh! it might be a Marisa – they don’t do any marketing or put their dresses online – so its hard to know for sure.  When I google my dress name, there are only 4 or 5 pictures that pop up of real brides wearing it – and one of them is me – haha.  I like that its a little mysterious though ๐Ÿ™‚   From what I saw, her collection ranges from 1200-2000, and Randy from SYTD said that their prices are really reasonable since you’re not paying for advertisements.
