There’s no way I’m going to buy such an expensive dress (that I can’t return) without being able to go home and look at pictures of me in it. Plus, my mom and sister are 1000 miles away and I want to get their input too.
I don’t understand why these stores have a no-photo policy. There are pictures of the dresses out on the designers’ websites for anyone to see, so it’s not like the designs are top-secret or anything. All that it does is makes me NOT want to buy the dress at that store.

@JenniferG: agreed. They claim it is to protect their designers’ dresses.. but seriously.. if I wanted to copy a dress I would go online and get a pic. It is not that big of a deal.

Yeah, I get that they have their “reasons,” but I’ll say this. The shop I went to that had this policy is *not* where I ended up getting my dress.

I’ve had issues with this also. I just don’t understand how they think people can make such an important decision without seeing pictures of themselves. When I first tried on the dress I think I’m going to buy, it was nice, but I didn’t think it was anything special. Then I got home and saw the pictures and thought I looked AMAZING in it. It looked like it was made for me. If I hadn’t been able to take pictures, I probably would have discounted the dress not realizing how perfect it is for me.

Almost every store I’ve been to didn’t allow pictures. Guess what? I’ll be buying from the store that DID allow them. Even though I might be buying a sample that I tried on at a different store, I’ll just order it from the store I like. I think it’s stupid too.

Every store I went to allowed pictures and I went to all the high-end shops in town. Even David’s Bridal allowed pictures.
