- Wedding: May 2012
Long story short:
I bought a wedding dress at a store (deposit was half the price of the dress). When I decided on the dress, the assistant put on a veil on me which was nice but I did not want to buy it as it’s a few hundred dollars for a nothing-special veil (I can easily find nicer ones from Etsy or whatever). So we went down to pay the deposit and the veil was included in the contract. I ask her to remove it and that if I wanted it in the future, I’ll buy it then. She says that it’s only there so that the store will know which veil it is (model no., design whatever) and that she will put it in the system that I could decide later if I wanted it or not. Mother-In-Law and SIL gave the impression that this is normal (they’ve bought numerous wedding dresses before with other SILs etc.).
Well now, I’ve been told that because I signed the contract, I would have to pay for the veil anyway. I am so iritated because this is a really, really, really overpriced veil (well..I guess all the accessories at bridal stores tend to be overpriced, on Etsy, this veil is probably around $30 and now I’m paying aout $310) and I already told them so many times that I DID NOT want this on my contract. I am annoyed at myself because I was pressured into thinking it was “OK” when I should’ve known better!!! Grrrr
