I have narrowed my dresses down to two. But they are from different shops and one shop could be a little more stressful then the other. Do I go for a dress just because I Prefer the shop and owner or do I go for the dress I like more?

I would get the dress I like more and bring it elsewhere for alterations, etc. Just make sure you find someone you like to do the alterations before you order the dress. That way, you only have to deal with the less than stellar salon to order and pick up your dress.

How is the other shop more stressful? There is a shop with a dress I liked for cheaper, but they are notorious for not returning calls and late arrival dates. If it’s alterations issue, then buy it there and take it elsewhere like the poster above suggested. I’d say buy the dress you love and if possible maybe check around to see if another salon has it where their service is reputable.
