I went to try on my dress for the first time today! I love it and am soo excited! The length came in perfect, the sash matched perfect, and even though I ordered it a size smaller than I was measured for I’ve been dieting and it was already too loose! I’m going to have cups put in and have my sash sewn into the closure.
I tried on dreses at a few different stores. One store I went to was large, with a big variety, and pushy sales people. Another store was more of a mom and pop store with a limited variety. The big store wanted to charge $1,175 for my dress and another $130 for the sash. I called the mom and pop store, and they said they could order the same exact dress for $685! then I found almost the same sash online for $67! End of story shop around! Even if a store doesn’t have the dress you are looking for ask if they can order it, or do price matching. If I hadn’t inquired I could have gotten majorly ripped off by ridiculous markup!
Has anyone else come across anything like this?
