Ugh, so sorry.  I bet the veil was a condition of the dress selling, so it’s not like you can just get the veil alone.  I’d call them back and ask them why the dress was so much in the first place since you found it for so much less.  Then I’d probably write a few bad reviews, then walk away.  $300 isn’t worth dealing with bad bridal salons.

But yeah, did you do any research on Maggie pricing?  $2800 for a standard MS is obviously way out of the ball park… just curious why red flags didn’t go up?

Yuck. 

Fingers crossed you can get the veil with your $300 deposit. Keep us updated and stay strong

Omg MS dresses are never that expensive! The veil *COULD* be 1000 though.. did you not get the price of the veil before you left? I tried on a veil in my bridal salon that was 1400$!!!! Totally crazy.

I would confront them about their pricing on the dress.  Maybe once they know the jig is up they’ll order it for you at the actual price.  I would say do that and keep pressing on just buying the veil.  If they don’t budge, tell them you’ll despute the charge.  Good luck!!

@MrsNeutrino: Gosh! What did the $1400 veil look like?

Admittedly, I did try on one about that price in silk with heavy hand beading.

@SpecialSundae: It wasnt even all that :-/ When I ordered the dress.. the sales lady asked if she should just order my belt and veil at the same time.. and I asked how much they were.. belt: $700 veil: 1350 :-/ Here is a pic of the veil..cathedral lenghth.. silk tulle with lace and beading.. oh and a blusher that isnt in this pic. If you can see.. the pricetag is behind my head.. I would have rather it stayed there.

I have had GREAT luck with my back when i disputed charges… my friend does it all the time (even sometimes when it isn’t warranted and i wouldn’t suggest that) but she gets stuff removed all the time too….

Hopefully your bank just gives you back the money…… 

I HATE the bridal salon where I got my dress and am just waiting till I am sure that i NEVER have to see them again to write my horrible reviews!

@LouLou513:  it seems like the salon took advantage of your first appointment which should be a happy time.  hopefully it all works out. but you should always give a cap on your budget.  mine was the same as yours and no one brought me dresses to the top on purpose. i tried on a variety.

fingers crossed for you.

Worst case, you lose the deposit and it’s the price of not having to deal with those people. But hopefully the stop payment will work. Definitely leave reviews for the shop. This sounds like shady practices.
