That does sound annoying. But…a good excuse for a trip to NYC, which is always fun. The Pronovias store is nice – it’s right by my job so I pass it occasionally.

I call BS on the Vera Wang issue. It is far too popular right now for BMs to wear mismatching dresses for this to be true. They just sound like arses, which is strangely no uncommon in the wedding world, amazingly. At times the lack of professionalism in the WIC shocks me.

Pronovias in NYC is having a sample sale next Sunday. Maybe you’ll find it there for cheap!

When I visited the Pronovias flagship store, they didn’t have all of their dresses in to try on. (What?!) i also had a pretty awful experience, but that’s a whole other story…

Unfortunately, I’ve heard about that Vera Wang policy before. It does come from Vera Wang, not the bridal boutiqe, so that’s who to be upset with.

If you do have to go up to New York, Wedding Atelier is a nice, small boutique that had a good selection. Although I would think that Philadelphia should have plenty of bridal boutiques for you to find a dress you love.

:S that is mega annoying.. if you are super interested in the vera wang dress as a wedding dress, I’d go try it on, make sure of the size and color, and then order it off of vera’s website. this is what we did for our bridesmaids because they were over $300 here in toronto and i ordered them online for 220.. just a thought!

I’m curious to know which store you called. I’m in the Philly area as well and ran into so supremely lousy bridal service at salons around here. I agree about the BS on the Vera gowns, that’s prolly a store tactic to try and lock in more sales.

If you’re going to be in NYC, you might as well try Kleinfeld.

The Pronovias flagship is near my office and is pretty amazing.

I’m not sure why she would tell you that about Vera Wang, since you can order their dresses online via their website.

Definitely don’t go to any bridal salon without calling them first if you are interested in a specific dress. Even Kleinfelds doesn’t have everything. I’ve even had one tell me a dress was there, but “realized” it wasn’t when I arrived for my appointment!

That’s a very common experience if you’re living somewhere smaller. In New Zealand there are plenty of places listed as ‘stockists’ of a particular brand who actually only have two or three dresses by them. At least you have the option of visiting other shops, and hopefully they’ll have better service too.

I’ve heard Vera Wang only sell two or more white bridesmaid dresses at a time. That makes a bit more sense as a bride is unlikely to have just one Bridesmaid or Best Man wearing white.

Sometimes I feel like finding the right dress is harder than finding the right partner. Your experience is like a bad date, which is a bummer and there may be more to come. Chin up she (the dress) is out there for you!
