Should I go try on dresses just for the fun of it? I already have my dress, it’s hanging in the closet, (bought at Value Village for $20) but I would like to go to an actual bridal shop and try some different styles on… Are the bridal sales team paid by commission or by the hour? I don’t want to waste any of the commisssion’s time, but if they’re paid per hour, who cares right?
The reason why I am asking is that I see all of you having fun trying on dresses!

I don’t see a problem with it, they don’t know if you are going to buy anything or not. Do you think that you are going to get another dress?

@Ashley1281: no, I just want to try some on… just for fun… by myself.

Every store is different. I think it would be courteous to try to find out ahead of time is sales associates are paid by comission. I am also just wary of dress shopping after you already have a dress. Be prepared to like a dress you try on and have a plan of action with what you would want to do if that were to happen. Also, I wouldabsolutely NOT try on super fancy designer gowns that you couldn’t possibly think about paying for. It would suck to fall in love with some $10,000 dress and then not love anything else.

i voted no, but not because it’s rude. It’s because you’re risking like another dress more than the one you have, and that wouldnt be good D: imagine the dress regret

I put no, but not because it’s rude to the sales team. You don’t want to fall in love with another dress! That’s how people get dress regret and end up with a bazillion dresses!

I wouldn’t. If you fall in love with something at the store you may never feel the same way about your current dress.

I say go for it, but with the knowledge that you MiGHT fall in love and have dress regret about the one you already have. So if you go I think you should set a reasonable budget that you are comfortable with spending just in case that happens and you have to get that dress.

If there was a chance that you may fall in love with something and that is why you are looking – like in a dress regret situation – then I would say do it. But if you aren’t prepared to buy and you don’t want to, what happens if you really do fall in love with a dress? That may be a bit of a bind. I think the saleswomen are paid by commission, but really, what do I know, I don’t work in sales.

I wouldn’t because I don’t see the fun in it, but if you feel like you want the experience and you know for sure no dress will be better than the one you currently have, then go for it.

You DO NOT keep dating once you have said “YES” to your fiance!! Why would you keep shopping once you have the dress?
A. Those people DO work on comission and you are wasting their time.
B. You are going to be totally heartbroken if you find an amazing dress that you aren’t going to buy.

I didn’t vote beacuse the No option didn’t apply for me. I say NO because you may fall in love with something and you already have a dress – just a bad idea in that regard!

I don’t think people realize that trying on dresses “for fun” costs the salon a lot of money. It breaks down to $15 per try per dress because a dress can only be tried on 50 times before it’s garbage. So I would consider very closely whether you want to waste peoples time and money before doing it.

If you did go I would suggest going on a weekday during the day. Those are usually the slower hours of the salon.
