    I would try calling the salon and see if you can schedule fittings with them on the weekends when it’s most convenient for you. I’m sorry you were put in this position. It really wasn’t fair to you. Maybe the salon was trying to duck out of having to do the work?

    i would go to the salon,  like you say,  its more convenient for you,  and you are not getting any better treatment by going with the designer

    I had a muslin and would have only had 3 total fittings if they hadn’t screwed up my dress so bad. Honestly if you have a muslin you actually need less fittings, you should only need one or two once it comes in. I would do the fittings at the more convenient location honestly. That sux they are only available during work hours.. most salons are at least available on the weekends and keep one night open late during the week 🙁

    I say stick with the designer but only because the salon lied to you. The designer seems like the only honest one.

    Sorry KatNYC2011 I am just really jaded by the wedding industry at this point hehe:) They’re all out to get me! 😀


    Your salon experience sounds way nicer than mine! My clerk didnt give good service and then tried to quick sell me on a discounted sample that i hadn’t seemed to happy with, even though I never expressed any interest in buying samples or that dress. She had money symbols in place of her eyes, I could see it! LOL

    @KatNYC2011: I agree with Cmt83‘s comment of;

    ‘I say stick with the designer but only because the salon lied to you. The designer seems like the only honest one.’

    Well, it sounds like either way the max is ~600, even paying the $150 + $400 gets you around the same price and you’re getting the muslin and the convenient hours. That way you still get your custom fittings, not miss work, and have your NY friend come with you.

    I don’t see why you shouldn’t get the muslin and other fittings from the salon. I would only be worried that it wasn’t the same quality as the designer’s. Have you heard good things about their alterations?

    I don’t think the salon was trying to be deceiving, they were probably just misinformed like you said and it looks like they’ve tried very hard to find a solution for it.

    Now that you’ve created a nice relationship with the salon you should probably stick with them, they will probably keep trying to please you cause they know they made a mistake in the first place.


    I hope everything works out, and either way the dress will still be lovely !
