If you’re going to pay $2000 for a dress, I would expect information before I pay!

Does the tulle skirt have lace patches on it? I have the Enzoani Fatima and it looks very similair to the dress you posted above (the Pronovias Alcanar)

This one is Pronovias, I tried it on, too.  I would look at the site and tell the dress shop to stop being such WEIRDOS!

That’s how my dress buying experience was as well.  Through mass amounts of research, I was able to piece together where the dress came from/who designed it, but no thanks to the staff.  If you truly can’t know until you buy it, then you just have to decide if you think that dress is worth $2000 to you.  If not, then you keep looking.  Designer or no designer, if you love it and it’s in your budget, then you’ve got your answer.

The one you posted is the Pronovias Alcanar. I tried it on and really liked it.

Pronovias has a new one this year that is similar, could it have been this one? Pronovias Planeta:

My best friend had the same experience, but she bullied the dress shop into giving her the information and she was able to fidn the exact dress on eBay for less than half. I don’t know if that’s being mean to the dress shop, but I think it’s unfair for them to withhold the information. Other vendors have to deal with competition, why not dress shops?

I wouldn’t buy there. 

Reputable shops are proud that they are affiliated with certain bridal designers.  They want to let people know they carry the designers they do. 

I would suspect that you won’t be getting a designer gown that’s truly worth your $2000 if you order from them.   

 

 

Not that you can take this on, but not telling customers the maker and country of origin is against US law (see this thread started by one of the Hostessses).  Again, I don’t think you can take that on, but I would assume that there’s something shady afoot.

I would not buy from them unless they had proof that they were an authorized dealer of this gown. At the very least require the designers name. All of the shops Ive been to organizes gowns by collections and clearly mark the designers.

My dress shop didnt want to tell me the s tyle number of my dress before i paid but they did tell me the designer and I found the dress on their website. They should atleast tell you the name of the designer you have the right to know which designer you are paying for, otherwise I wouldnt buy from them

@laneylaney:  I have a feeling Pronovias and Enzoani would be ticked that their dresses are being sold that way.

 

They aren’t very exclusive brands…you can surly find another salong to deal with, right?  I just don’t trust a salon that isn’t forthcoming with information.
