I would not buy anything from that place! I would just look around at other bridal shops and ask them about the dresses you liked!

go online and make sure you check every bridal place for your dress. Something sounds fishy there.

i would go elsewhere. something is not right with those folks. it might not even be a real designer dress. not to mention how do you know if you buy a “new” dress that its actually new and not a cleaned sample!? RUN dont walk away from these people.

Can you sneak in a pic with your cell phone trying it on in the dressing room? If you could even get an on-the-hanger shot, you might be able to find it elsewhere…

If you arent going to do business there beacsue its shady, take a quick photo of it!! They sound really weird.. and a used dress shouldnt be the same price as it new!! Maybe you can call the manufacturer of the first dress to see if they are still producing it?

Good Luck!

If you do get a picture / have your drawing of the 2nd dress- post it here. Someone is bound to have seen it before or know who its by!

Sneak a pic. This is unethical business practice and the salon is trying to take advantage of you. I think some salons really think “brides” are all airheads willing to plunk down a ton of money for anything white.

Personally, I’d be tempted to report them to the Better Business Bureau. At the very least, what they’re doing with used samples is unethical and wrong. I’d go in to try the dress on again, and while in the dressing room take photos with my cellphone or a regular camera. You don’t want to be dealing with these people! Find it used online or at another local store (hopefully!). Good luck!

This sounds like the  reviews of the bridal shop that I am doing business with…

Similar situation …where this is THE DRESS… but it is a discontinued sample that they are still trying ot charge full price for. It is frustrating but at least I have the name and style number to find other stores that might have the dress. Good Luck!

I would take a pics of the dresses…what’s that worse they can do kick you out of the store 🙂

No way. Do not pay full price for a sample. I am so sorry this is happening, but I’d starting looking elsewhere. Pronto.
