Maybe I’m weird, but instead of being elated about finding a dress, I just feel relieved! I’ve probably tried on 30 or so, and to be honest, I could see myself wearing a lot of them.
I went to a small boutique yesterday with my mom and picked out 5 to try on. The first one I tried, I really liked, and so did my mom. I tried the others and really liked 2 more…but when I tried on #1 a second time, I knew that was it. It was light, fit well, gave me hips (I am very straight hipped!) and best part…it’s a sample so it was $700!! I was prepared to spend up to $1500, but was feeling so guilty about that…so once I saw the price tag on this one, that totally sealed the deal for me.
It is the Ella 5468:
I had another appointment after this one, but since I found the dress, I called to cancel it. They were SO RUDE TO ME on the phone! I mean I didn’t expect them to be thrilled about me purchasing elsewhere, but I was shocked! And gee, I thought I was doing the right thing by a) calling and saying I wasn’t coming or b) going there anyway and wasting time knowing I wasn’t going to buy there!

Congratulations!! You look fantastic! It’s so dramatic. I really love how well it fits you. Don’t worry about the other place. You absolutely did the right thing. They have their own issues. You just keep focused on the gorgeous and tres budget friendly dress you just bought!

Well first of all you look beautiful the dress is stunning!! Second that is extremely rude.. You did the right thing!! I mean yes they lost a sale but they arent going to gain any sales if their customer service is that awesome..

You made the right choice.
I am sorry that the other salon was rude to you. I guess they don’t think that brides have friends that they might recommend, even if they don’t purchase from them. Customer service is key in this economy.

@AppliedScience: Congratulations. That dress is so Beautiful, love the shape, it shows your figure of perfectly. If the second shop were rude by you calling to cancel as you didn’t want to waste their time be thankful you didn’t give them your money if that’s the attitude they’ve got.

@CatyLady: That’s what I was thinking! I’m glad I didn’t do business there after seeing their ‘true colors’.
Thanks for all of the compliments!

Beautiful! The same thing happened to me with cancelling another appointment. It really reminded me that a lot of sales places see brides as dollar signs and nothing else.
Back to the dress, though…I love the combination of the lace and ruffles! It’s so different!
