I actually didn’t even think to look at reviews when dress shopping, but it’s a good idea.  I had gone to this one salon where my consultant literally acted like she did not know what she was doing at all.  It turns out I may be going back there because my friend wants to look for our BM dresses there!

But I say go in and try stuff on just to get an idea.  If you do find one, jot down the designer and style number or name and buy it elsewhere.

You may have a different experience and as you said you are just trying to get an idea. If it gets rough then leave no harm done. FYI Websites are fantastic to use to browse different styles too so that you can narrow it down from the hundreds to a few you want to see in person. Good luck!

I went shopping at a store that had bad reviews, didn’t love it, but it had such a great selection. I ended up ordering my dress from a different store that had great reviews and included alterations in the price of the dress. It didn’t cause any problems shopping there since I had plenty of time and was able to find other stores in the area to order from since I knew I didn’t want to deal with them for alterations.
