Do you have copies of your contracts for the two dresses?

Honestly? It does put the bridal shops in a tough position because they usually have to buy the dresses from the designer/manufacturer and so they will be stuck with the costs of the dresses.

The best advice I can give you is to read the contracts and fully understand the stores policies before making a decision. It really might end up cheaper to buy them and then resell them.

they’re probably able to charge you for them if you leave them there. check the contract and do the right thing. at the very least, call them up and see what option you have. you kinda put yourself into this mess =

You can call them and cancel the order, they will tell you you are out of the deposit, but that is all you should be responsible for. Do not just ignore the store though, they could end up charging you for the whole dress if you used a credit card to put down payment.

I’d check what you signed. My purchase was an “all sales final” type of thing, but I paid the full amount. Not sure about deposit only.

it also depends on if they have started making your dress or not. since its getting pretty close to your wedding, most likely your dresses have already gone into production and you will end up having to pay in full. even girls who end up cancelling their weddings usually end up having to take the dress. if they haven’t started to make them, you may be able to only lose your deposit. you need to call them ASAP – like right now. and even if you do and they haven’t started making your dress, your contract may still obligate you to pay in full.

They will most likely hold you responsible for the rest of the balance if it was a custom order and not a store sample. I tried to cancel an order once and was told this is what was stated in my signed contract (and when I read it carefully, it was). I second reviewing the contract and then talking to the store to see what your options are.

Now that I think about it, that even happened to me with a hair/makeup contract. I changed my mind but the first vendor I cancelled with made me pay the full balance for “lost business” even though they didn’t have to pay a dime on me. I was so mad…

Kinda weird that you failed to do this the mintue you bought the last “the one” dress.
