So im finally about to start the dress search, at Kleinfelds (with Keisha!) in mid-Sept. I was thinking…I’m so paranoid, about getting things on time. Should I lie to them about my wedding date? Maybe say it is a month earlier than it really is? I doubt I’d gain weight in a month to the point it would effect any fitting.

I have no advice on what you should do as I’m not even engaged yet…. But I’m like giddy that your consultant is Keisha! She’s my fav consultant on SYTTD! Lucky you!

I would lie. Wow, that sounds really super awful when I say it like that! I am sure a reputable salon like Kleinfeld’s is better about shipping issues, etc. it is just a general smart thing to do and will give you more peace of mine. I have a fake address and phone number I give out to salons, too, because I hate junk mail. When I actually make a dress decision, I will give out everything right, though!

NO! That’s one of Randy’s rules! Never lie to your bridal consultant!

I wouldn’t lie. It doesn’t seem like a smart thing to do. Try to be as open and honest so you can get your perfect dress. Even if you do – they’ll find out eventually in alterations or whatnot! The date of your wedding will be a major tracking point once you become a customer in the system. There could be 20 Sarah’s on X date. It’ll be too hard to remember the lie – and anyone else who goes with to too.

I would. I was honest about my date and both my dresses arrived way too close to the wedding.

I bought my dress at Kleinfelds and did not lie about the wedding date. The dress came in on time without any problems.

I wouldn’t lie. Your wedding is still a long way away, so it shouldn’t be an issue.

I don’t think you should lie about your wedding date. I think that you should let them know when you would like final alterations done and use that as an ordering guide.

I would, just because I’ve heard horror stories about other brides’ dresses arriving too close to the wedding date and not enough time for alterations. But I’m paranoid like that!

You could pad it by a month or so. I don’t see anything wrong with it.
I had to get my ring reset and they told me it would be a week, when I called at the end of the week they said they hadn’t gotten to it and would the next week so I told them my wedding is in 2 weeks (instead of 4) to have them move it to the top of the pile.
I think adding a month or 6 weeks is totally fine if you’re paranoid but also expect for them to do your fittings earlier as well unless you let them know the real date.

I’m not sure I understand why you need to lie. Are you afraid they might say you’re looking too early and might not pay attention to you, or are you afraid the dress won’t be ready in time if you give them too much slack, etc.?

I wouldn’t lie either. They are a professional store and will get your dress on time. I’m so excited for you that you are getting a fitting with Keisha, she rocks!

I’m so jealous! Keisha is my favorite consultant.
Honestly, I wouldn’t lie. First of all on principle because it usually causes complications. But in this situation I think it’s entirely unnecessary. Kleinfeld’s is not some tiny inexperienced bridal salon. They have been doing this for a long time and know their stuff. I’m sure you’ll be fine telling them the real date. And it will make your life much less complicated too.

Oh how jealous I am!! Keasha’s the best! She will find your dream dress, I’m sure!
I wouldn’t lie. They know what they’re doing there so I don’t think you’d have any problems/
