That does seem a bit shady – the store should know it’s stock! And when they order the dress they have to know who they are ordering from! What does it say on the ordering receipt?

Have you talked to the store about the situation?

Maybe the store accidently ordered the wrong dress? It definitely sounds like they ordered the wrong size! <5 pounds shouldn’t make a difference.

You should talk to them and see what they can do.

I went on his website, while i could not find your dress, all the dresses on that site were gorgeous.  So I’m assuming yours is also. The shady part to me appears more to the fact that they ordered a dress the wrong size so that they could get you on alterations.  I would go back to the salon try on the sample dress and remind them you ordered it that size not the size it came in and that you will not be paying for all the extra alterations check in your area for tailors, seamstress’ etc.  i brought my dress at db and am going to a local bridal shop to do alterations for 1/2 the price.

OH man i am so sorry! you arent being silly its something that is very important. i would find out how much more you have to spend and see if it might be worth just buying a new one.

Have you contacted the retailer, they may have made a mistake?  I’ve heard of Ronald Joyce before (I think it’s a UK brand) and it’s actually quite prestigious over here.  However that said, if you genuinely don’t want to wear the dress, there is no reason why you have to.  Either return it to the retailer (if that’s a possibility) or sell it on ebay or something, then buy a new one.  No harm no foul :0)

Did your contract indicate the designer? If so, then you technically didn’t receive what you paid for and have an “out”.

I had a salon do that to me. I fell in love with a dress and asked who the designer was. No one I was familiar with. Well, we went home and could not locate a website for that designer anywhere. And my mom was just moseying around the internet and found that it was a Maggie Sottero. The salon had flat-out lied to me about the designer (the owner gave me the information – “Oh that dress? It’s so-and-so.” I think they did it because they KNOW the other designer doesn’t have a website.

Well, I found another salon and bought my dress from them. You lie to me, I take my business elsewhere.

SUPER shady. Take it back, explain your problem and see what they are willing to do. You deserve either a refund or the correct dress!

YOU paid for the dress therefore you should be more then happy with it.  I would have a sit down talk with them about your feelings about it and flat out ask for a discount on either the price of the dress or a cut of costs on the alterations….  Good luck and im sure after it is said and done you will look very nice and feel like a princess.
