I would write them thank you letters:

“Thanks so much for helping me on “Date”.  Your shop was very accomodating and the sales people were so helpful.  Thank you for being a part of my wedding dress shoping experience.  I will be sure to tell others how great your bridal shop is.”

I agree with Chela! That would be really nice.  Obviously you may be restricted to whcih shop you go to based on which dress you choose, right?  They are used to having brides not buy, and as long as you were really nice and friendly I”ll be that was worth a lot (as it seems not everyone is!)

You could write the thank you notes if you have time, but I think they’re used to it. It’s just part of it.

I agree with KateMW, I think they’re used to the process.

You are not alone! I have had the same experience. Mom and I have already basically made up our minds that where we are ordering my dress from once we find it so I feel guilty for “using” the other bridal salons just because they have a different dress selection.

I like the idea of sending a thank you note though!

I think if any vendor is really good, you should compliment them on their customer service.  I greatly dislike it when I go somewhere and am treated rudely or ignored, or pressured.

I do think KateMW is right, the consultants are definitely used to going through this process with multiple brides.  They’ll understand that you’ll eventually have to make a choice and might not go with their store.  However, I definitely think that you could write a thank you note and/or good review to recognize any exceptional customer service experiences.  FWIW, I saw my dress at several stores, but I decided to order it at the original store where I found it.  The consultant at that store pulled the dress for me (I never would have tried it on otherwise), so I felt like I wanted to recognize that.  Also, I got great customer service from the consultants AND store owner there, so that definitely counted for something with me.  I liked that they knew who I was (and about my dress) when I called/came in for fittings.
