Due to my recent dress size fiasco, my sister started calling around different bridal shops to find out if they had the dress in the size I needed.
Long story short – she found out that most other shops sell the dress for 300-400 less than what I paid for it.
My dress has been bought and paid for. I honestly don’t have a problem with the price I paid because I LOVE the shop and was happy to give them my business.
My sister, on the other hand, wants to call them and see if they’ll do a price match or refund some of my purchase price.
It’s the LAST THING I want to be bothered with – and I still have to deal with the shop owner for pricing alterations, etc – and I don’t want there to be any bad blood between us.
My sister is telling me she’ll call the shop on my behalf and I won’t even have to know anything about it. I told her, finding out I could have gotten a better deal is making me a bit sad – and I don’t want to think about it (but, obviously, I AM thinking about it now)… I wish she never said anything – because it really doesn’t matter at this point.
SO – hive, what would you do? Would you let it go? or would you have your sister call and see if she could get any money back?

honestly i dont think they will giv u a price match, because they will probably say you had to choice to shop around before you committed to buying their dress. i’ve never heard of bridal stores reducing the price of the dress after purchase just because you found the dress somewhere else at a cheaper price. if u really want to save the money u could just tell them u changed ur mind about the dress and go buy it from the cheaper place but honestly with allthe hassle in planning a wedding if i already had the dress i would just cross that off my list of things to do adn try not to think abt the price

I honestly can’t see them giving you any money back…I think it would be a waste of time/energy.

Do you still have the option of returning it or is it a final sale? If you do, they may match the price and I would definately ask. Or at least throw in the alterations with no extra charge. If you cant return it, then you’re probably out of luck.

The store can put any price on the dress and have no obligations to match the price anywhere else. I’d explain gently to your sister that even though she has the best intentions, she wouldn’t get anything out of it and that the whole idea is a bit ridiculous.

Since you have already paid it all…I highly doubt they will refund you or price match at this point. Why would they? They have your money already!
I would also let it go…

It never hurts to try, but I doubt they would match the price.

I think it’s worth a shot to ask..I would just to get it off my mind.

I imagine the extra is what you pay for good customer service. Consider it worth the price and let it go.

I would let this one go. But if you do decide to do something about it, please don’t let your sister do the calling. I sincerely doubt they’re going to help this if you don’t make the call yourself.

I would let it go as well. Chances are the other stores would charge more for alterations or something of that nature and the dresses would end up being the same cost.

I dunno… they probably wont, but what does it hurt to ask? Maybe they’ll discount the alterations or something for you. Just be nice, dont piss them off since they still have to alter your dress.
