I am getting married this August. I bought a dress already but I am not feeling in anymore. I want to try on a dress from Karelina Sposa but I cant even find a sample to try on! They are fitted and have a ton of beading and detailing so they said having alterations done will be price so I refuse to order it without trying it on. I have emailed the designer and have not received an answer but their website says the only place that carries it is in Florida….their website must not show all orders because another place said they have it but someone is coming Sunday to buy it…they werent listed as a carrier. Does anyone know any other way to find a sample from a Spring collection 2013. I dont even see any trunk shows and Ive called everywhere.

If you can find a store that carries that designer, will they order the sample dress for you to try on?

No they wont even do that for a regular priced dress let alone a $2000.00 and up dress. They said they dont want to pay that much if no one buys it.

Not sure of your exact location so I just picked a zip code. Here is a screen shot of the salons near you that carry this line. (I only picked the top 3 because the others were pretty far)

My salon carried the designer I wanted but not the specific dress I wanted to try on. They called the designer who sent them a sample gown for me to try on. The salon was allowed to keep the sample for two weeks (basically enough time to make sure I could get in for an appointment) and then they sent the sample back. The salon did not have to buy the dress from the designer
I did have to pay a $60 shipping fee but if I bought a dress from them, any dress, that $60 was taken off the purchase price.

@jwilk241….that is the site I looked at as well and none of them even have the spring collection. I even clicked on the specific dresses and it has a thing that says find the stores that ordered the dresses….only one is in FL.
@glasgowbound I would pay to have that done but none of them will order it! I even tried NY NY and surrounding areas. No one has them or will order them.
It is bad enough I already made my fiance pay 1500.00 for my dress and he is willing to pay another 2200.00 to make me happy…there is no way I am asking him to fork over flight and hotel money to TRY on a dress lol….I am assuming I am sol and need to move on to another dress or designer :-/

I am not married yet, but right now in relationship with a boy. I like to design clothes but I am unable to sew 🙁 . I would really like to help you with this, if in case it can lessen the budget you need to spend with dresses out there. However, you either need to sew by yourself, or pay someone to sew it for you. I would love to hear from you what kind of dress you’re dream of.
p.s: I dont need any single payment for this. I will be glad to help to see you be happy in your wedding day.
