@BellaDee:  I don’t really see how that is leverage, seeing as they already have your money it’s not much of a threat!

I would say, go back to the store. Try on the Martina. If you love the first dress (and I’ve read your first post), then awesome. No problem there.

Keeping in mind, your original dress would love amazing with the Jim Hjelm belt, and bolero and once you’ve accessorized with the earrings and cuff. It would be a very modern look. The Martina however, seems to be more of what you described as wanting: the lace, the details, the soft look, very flowy.

Try and reason with them. Yes, I understand the order has already been placed but surely it can’t be all that hard to try and call the designer to inquire about the stage of production? In what, 4-5 days since you placed the order, I really doubt the dress would be in much progress, if any.

So I don’t see why the store won’t be able to credit you back the deposit you paid. Even if say the fabric has already been cut, surely they can hold the dress for another bride’s order and take maybe 20% from you as damages.

I definitely vote to going back and trying the dresses again. At the very least, you would have tried and not be haunted by this regret.
