I think you did the right thing.  You don’t want to be pressured into buying the dress.  If you weren’t sure about it, it probably wasn’t the one.  And I have a hard time believing that the dress wouldn’t be available ever again.  Sounds like it might of been their sales tactic.  I bet you find something even better, give it time.

I think you made the right decision to walk away. It sounds horrible to get pressured like that.

I wonder if they were being truthful with you. I’ve heard of the “buy it today, it’s going to be discontinued” trick being played at bridal shops. It seems strange that a designer at a trunk show would be complicit in something like that, but I guess they might have sales quotas too.

Don’t worry,  you’ve only just started looking. You’ll find a dress!

Breath – – please relax stay calm and breath – – its called sales pressure, do not cave – why would they bring 1 dress that is only available on that day and never again – not only that but their reasons for its availability in the future were not even clear – That is very odd to me!!!

IMO – – I don’t think anyone should ever purchase the dress of their dreams b/c they feel stressed and/or pressured.

Like the other peeps, I also think that this may have been part of their sales pitch to pressure you into buying now. You absolutely did the right thing.

Pressure is one of the oldest sales tricks in the book. Remember, as the Sweet Potato Queens say: “They’re makin’ them thangs every day.” There are 10,000,000 wedding dresses out there. You will find loads of others that you love.

Honestly I HATE it when the salespeople pressure to you purchase an item.  Good for you to be able to take yourself out of that situation!  Knowing myself, I would have probably buckled and gave in, since I have ‘sucker’ stamped on my forehead!  I’m sure you will find one you love which will make you feel equally glam, if not more so!

Yikes I hate that feeling of being pressured and feeling unsure about whether or not to buy the dress!

Props to you for walking away to clear your head!!!!
