My mum and I are planning on going wedding dress shopping (for me) in a few weeks. I want to make appointments for a few places but I’m afraid that their dresses will be way over my budget. Alot of places don’t have the price range of their dresses on their websites. I don’t want to fall in love with a dress and then be told that its far more than my budget. I’ve seen from previous posts that this has happenend to some girls. Is it ok to make appointments and try on dresses even if I don’t end up buying my dress there?
I really don’t have a clue.
Appreciate any help!!

Of course it is. Why would anyone think you HAVE to buy a dress from the first place you enter?

@mrstobe14: you could always go dress shopping and if you fall for a dress you can always have it made by dressilyme.com all the ladies on here reve about them

@mrstobe14: When you go into the bridal salon for your appt one of the first things the bridal consultant will prob ask you is what is your budget…….then her plan would be to only show you dresses in your price range!!!

On my first shopping trip I’m pretty sure the consultant knew I wasn’t probably going to buy a dress that day. She just helped me figure out what I liked.
Don’t worry, you can try on dresses as at many different shops as you like until you find the perfect dress : )

U should get about an hr to an hr and a half per appointment. i am a quick changer so I got to try on 8 dresses my first appt. Some salons might not let u take pics or might not even tell u the price of the dress or the designer or its actual style name/number. One salon tried that on me and I took the first dress off and left immediately and went to a boutique who did allow photos and pricing info to be released. More flies with honey etc. now that I think about it, they even tried to lie to me about what i could get in my dress budget. grrrr. Anyway sorry! needless to say, I spent my money at the more honest and truthful boutique. Take pics, or write down dress info, and have fun! Good luck!
