Hi bees, my wedding is all up in the air at the moment due to my.fi having travel limitations. My parents also cannot come over to us for the wedding, so we are at a standstill for the next couple of months while we wait for travel permission for fi. In the meantime, a local salon is holding a trunk show next week and I am booked to go. I can’t purchase on the day, but trunk shows here are so rare for the designer that I thought it would be my only chance to try on the dresses. I know that I will wear the designer on my wedding day. That’s no question. But I really can’t buy on the day, as I really don’t know where or when we will get.married now. Is it poor form to keep the appointment? I paid $50 to vet the appointment already.

@lena_k_29: They will pressure you to purchase but there is no reason you have to. I think with the deposit (which is rare around here) for the appointment you might lose it if you don’t purchase versus it being applied to a dress or something but it doesn’t sound like that is an issue for you.
Go and try on the dresses and see what you love. You are not under any obligation.

I went to a trunk show a few months ago to try on a dress that I thought might be “the one.” Turned out it was awful on me! You’re definitely not obligated to buy. Be prepared for them to lay on the charm and pressure though lol

I actually tried on dresses during a trunk show without intention to buy since my wedding is still quite a ways off. But I knew I wanted to wear that designer. Sometimes during trunk shows they offer some type of deal as well. If I ended up purchasing a dress that weekend of the show I would receive a gift certificate for 10% of the price of the dress to use at the bridal shop. Luckily I didnt have a pushy consultant and went back a couple days later to buy it and got my gift certificate.
