I just did it anyway in the dressing room, of course the attendant wasn’t in there, just my mom & I had her take it w/o the flash so that you couldn’t see anything.

Or you can try to use a camera phone since they make no sound at all on silent. We did that too 🙂

Definitely sneak it into the fitting room!! If it is a smaller salon, I would bring someone in to distract the employee and then have someone else to take the pictures haha!

Ha!  I was wondering this same thing myself.  I like the faux-texting idea.  You could also go the myspace selfie route, but that might not give you the idea and perspective you want.

Faux-texting worked for me.  Of course the pictures aren’t great but they are still super helpful.  Plus, it amuses me that I have shifty looking eyes in the pics.

btw, i think its riduclous that a shop wont let you take a pic of yourself in a dress and even if it was “the” dress i would be wondering if i could buy it at a different shop just because of this.  not every bride wants the pic to get a copy dress made – they just want to know what they look like in it

just curious…have you asked if you could take photos? a very nice dress shop here in fort worth has “no photos” signs everywhere but my attendant allowed me to snap a few anyways. she said they honestly don’t mind if you take a few snapshots before making that kind of investment. turns out, they only put the sign up after a father of the bride wanted to set up a friggin tripod and umbrella lighting on a busy saturday to photograph his daughter!!!

what if you asked the attendant to take the pictures and then delete them so you could see what they looked like on camera?

I don’t know what store you went to, but I live in Lebanon, Pa and went to a bridal store called Enchanted Evenings to try on Maggie’s. I love them! Anyway they told me I couldn’t take pictures because Maggie’s dresses have copy rights on them, so I could only take pictures if I bought the dress I wanted to take pictures of. And the store attendant is the one who helps you put the dress on in the this store, so there is no way I could sneak pictures unless, my mom, or my MOH, preteneded to be texting, and took one on their phone.

Actually, I thought it was a big legal issue for designers that clothes *can’t* be copyrighted. The salons don’t want you to take pictures, because they’re afraid of losing business. It’s the same reason they hide the style numbers.

I 40th the fake texting, or maybe you could explain to the attendent why you want the picture. I can’t imagine that if they really want your business and for you to buy the dress from them, they would say no. Of course, I haven’t actually been dress shopping yet, so maybe I’m just being naive!

I just take a pic of myself in the mirror with my camera phone.
