Please don’t feel bad. You have a dress that you love and that’s what you should think about! I know it’s easier said than done though. Can we see some pics so we can tell you how lucky you are?? πŸ™‚

I agree with OttawaBride2011 – You have a dress you love! I never got that moment when dress shopping, and finally just admitted defeat and settled for something so I could be done shopping. Plus, who knows what the dress from netbride would have actually looked like, and then you’d be dealing with an anonymous online retailer, vs an actual bridal salon with employees you can talk to!

Beautiful dress – Is there any way you can go back to the salon and try to negotiate something after the fact?  I know it’s not ideal and they aren’t really required to work with you on the price at this point, but you never know…they may be accommodating to you.   Maybe there is some way you can get out of it….have they ordered the dress for you yet?

Definitely negotiate the alterations pricing. They should be able to do something for you on that for sure.

Yeah, at the very least try to negotiate the alterations.  Hell, for the price difference I would ask that they provide you with free alterations.  I would bring in your quote from Netbride to show them what they offered you.  I would be upfront with them and tell them you are upset and feel like you were overcharged.

Don’t feel bad – bridal shops always jack up prices…it’s the nature of the business!  I really hope it works out for you.  I am the same way about that kind of stuff and I get so irritated when I find out I paid more for something when I could have gotten it cheaper elsewhere.  It happens to everyone!  But yeah…I would go in there and make them feel bad for you.  $850 is a lot of money.  They should do something to keep you a happy customer so you don’t leave them with a bad taste in your mouth.
