So while visiting family I found a dress I loved but I hesitated. I didn’t get measured or order. Now I decided it is the one, but none of the shops in my whole state have the same sample. There are a few that carry the designers line though. And, I did find out that one shop on the next state over has the dress.
Should I go over state lines and order it? If I did that, what would I do about the fittings? I would hate to have to drive back and forth such a long distance several times?
Should I just ask a local shop that carries the designer to make the order? Can they even do that?

SeaRhapsody: Some bridal stores will ship the dress to you – why don’t you try calling them to ask? Then you could just make the one trip, and do your alterations closer to home.

If there are local boutiques that carry the designer, they can order the dress for you. I found my dress while visiting my parents 10 hours away, but I found a dress shop about an hour from me to order it from. They happened to have the dress in stock, but I called a few before I decided on that dress shop and they all said as long as they carry the designer they can order it for you. I refused to have to travel back and forth for fittings, and I can’t imagine what they would charge to ship it to me, so I didnt want to deal with that.

Since you really love it then going to another state seems fine — if no one in your state can order it. After the initial fitting to make sure it really works, you can always get it altered at home.
