Plan a road trip! Don’t settle! Just think of the awesome wedding memories about when you and your Maid/Matron of Honor (or other friend or mom) took a crazy long road trip in search of “THE DRESS”.  It will be great!

Best of Luck!

I would keep calling places, especially if it is a newer dress. I bought my dress a few weeks ago and when I called the store weeks prior, they didn’t have it as a sample. When I went, they had just gotten the dress in 2 days before!! So keep looking. By the way- I got my dress at Brides and Groom, Inc. in DE.

i had a dress too i really wanted to try on, and no one had it.  however, some other dresses i really wanted to try on were available and i ended up not liking them at all!  so i decided if i can’t try it on, i just can’t buy it. i HAD to see the dress on ME before buying. And what i learned with a lot of dresses i did get to try on was that they weren’t even worth it anyway, so what were the chances that this one dress i couldn’t find in any stores would be the one?

my point – i would just find another dress you like, so many styles are similar and if you can’t that one you want to try on anywhere, the put it out of your mind and don’t look at it online anymore!

(this is my advice of course after you exhaust all other possibilities). i was willing to road trip for a dress, but i ended up finding another one close by that i fell in love with. so the road trip wasn’t necessary in the end.

As Ms.Shamrock says take a road trip and make dress shopping memories. If you don’t you’ll always be wondering about it!

hey, i know Davids Bridal is no Maggie Sottero, but when i looked at your link, it reminded me of one i had tried on at DB:

maybe if you REALLY can’t find your dress to try on, you can try this one at DB to get a feel for how the style looks on you, but then order the maggie one?

Can any of the stores get it in for you to try on. I know some stores can borrow the dress from other stores.

I wanted a dress that was not available near me and I was planning to drive for miles just to go and see the dress, but I decide to visit a local bridal salon to see if i might see something similar.. once i started trying them on I ended up falling in love with a completely different style. I definitely suggest trying on similar styles as well as completely differnt styles in ur area just to get an idea, because u might realize that you love a totally different style too!

I’m not sure if they have this dress- but they do have a lot of Maggie dresses.  You could call and see if they carry it before you go there.  This is the place I got my dress from and they were extremely helpful when other places weren’t.  It is in Cary, NC which is about 2.5 hours from Wilmington.

If you’re willing to do this, stores can order in a specific dress for you.  There’s usually a $75 charge to do it, but if you get the dress it can be applied to the purchase.  Just a thought, especially since a road trip might cost that much anyway.

None of the stores would borrow it for you? I went to one shop, and if they didn’t have the dress, they would just borrow it from another vendor or from the company itself. I did have to pay a fee to have it borrowed, but it counts toward my expense of the dress if I do decide to purchase it. Call up some of your local shops to see if that’s a possibility before you take off on a long road trip.
