    any good shop owner will understand that you need to see the dress first. that’s why you only place a deposit when you order! otherwise you would just pay upfront.

    I think you should just explain the situation, and go pay in person when you’re back in LA. They should understand!

    I wouldn’t feel comfortable sending the payment either.  Hopefully the shop owner/manager will understand.  Ultimately, it shouldn’t be a problem because, from a professional prespective, the worst case scenario is that you never come get it.  Then they keep the deposit and the dress becomes a floor sample.  They shouldn’t give you a hard time.

    I would definitely talk to the shop owner and explain your situation – you shouldn’t have to pay until you see the dress!

    Agree with the above.  We paid the $600 deposit to order my dress, but I tried it on before paying the balance.

    My shop owner allowed me to try the dress on, leave, and then come back two weeks later with my mom (who was paying for the dress.)

    Ditto on all the other comments.  I think the shop will understand as long as you explain the situation to them.
