I would be up front with them. Tell them that you are probably not going to buy today but you want to get an idea of what they have. If they give you poor customer service, then that to me a sign that you shouldn’t give them your business anyway. People browse at comission-based stores all the time, we shouldn’t feel pressured to buy a dress!

You dont need to mention it. Just tell them to write the details of the dress you (kinda) like, price etc…. and then leave. Simples Laughing

@Kellylovesanthony:  ditto this. I am going tomorrow and don’t plan on buying a dress.  Even if I fall in love with one tomorrow I am going home to think about it/shop around more before I make the purchase. I still have time.

I’ve done this. I’ve tried on so many dresses in so many stores and if I liked something I just asked for them to write down the details.

I went to about 5 shops before I finally bought a dress. My consultants were great for the most part and they didn’t put any pressure on me to buy a dress that day. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Just have fun and get ideas of what you like and what looks good!
