@Solala:  Normally they will not especially if you put money down assuming you are buying the sample gown they have in the store, but thats not to say they wouldnt do it to make a buck. If they are a good salon with great reviews there should be nothing to worry about since it is reserved and not on hold(which is without any money)

It’s unlikely they would have sold that dress as a sample if you’re the first one to try it on. They will most likely order a new one for you and continue to let other people try the sample dress?

I would love to tell you that bridal shops don’t let people do that but I have read a number of stories where a bride stored her dress at the salon only to find out they were still using it like a sample. There was even a recent thread where a bride’s dress was rented out for debutante balls!

But this is a very rare occurance!!

Really depends on the salon.  They shouldn’t be doing that since you put money down on it.  I would look at online reviews of the store to get an idea of their history.  If they do stuff like that they likely have other points of poor service and behavior which people would mention in the review.

I would say no.  I went to a salon once and loved a dress but couldn’t decide in what color I would order it in (I ended up falling in love with a different dress at another salon).  The consultant told me another bride bought the same dress I liked in the other color I was considering and she brought it out to show me but that was it, she didn’t let me try it on (I didn’t ask either) but she did hold it up beside the dress I was wearing so I could see the difference in color and determine if it could work with my complexion. 

I was happy that the consultant made sure I knew she wouldn’t allow me to try it on because it was sold.  Again I never would have asked but it just showed me that they took their customers seriously and respected them.  I didn’t buy my dress from them but I did buy my shoes and belt from them.
