I don’t think you would need to do deal with the salesperson again once the dress is ordered. After that it’s making sure the store management processes your order correctly and gets you the correct color, size etc in a timely fashion; and dealing with alterations. Personally I’d go with the one that does less fittings just cuz I’m lazy 🙂 I don’t think knowing the dress matters, a good seamstress should be able to handle any dress. Why don’t you check some reviews from former brides for each store on sites like projectwedding and yelp ? Obviously avoid the one with too many bad reviews and if there’s no significant difference, just go with your gut. It’ll be fine either way. You’ve done the difficult part and found your dress, the rest should be easy!

Basically you should decide who you want the commission of the sale to go to?  Was the VW saleslady really that bad?  I think you should go with her since it was the original place you found the dress.  However if she was really rude then don’t give her the commission. 

I would say alter it at VW since it is a VW dress and they will probably know the dress better.  However, you can take the dress anywhere.  Buy it at the other store and take it to VW.

i think alterations at either place would be fantastic, so if it were me, i’d probably go with your guy feeling on customer service. that’s really weird that the VW person was so pushy though, i had a good customer service experience at their store in DC

One thing you may want to ask about at both places is the sample sale schedule.  I bought my dress as Kleinfelds but the gave me the sample sale discount since I knew the designer (Amsale) was having a sample sale that weekend.  Sometimes the designers will also throw in extras when you haggle a bit – like a veil or accessories.  It never hurts to ask!
