Hi, I joined specifically to get some advice/help. I have been looking in stores and calling stores within a few hours of me (sacramento) but no one seems to have any of the dresses I want to try on..it is frustrating because most of them are listed as “premier” suppliers on the designers website..yet they have none of the dresses. Anyways, I was wondering what is the best way to find what you are looking for..and is it really that crazy to want to see and try on something before buying it..I have been told countless times that they will order it for me..but I have to pay for it even if I don’t like it. I am willing to travel I guess..but I really don’t want to go THAT far. Thanks for any help you can give. Oh and if you are at all curious the dresses are:
Maggie Sottero: Isadora Marie, Fantine
Sottero/Midgley: Sanotorini Rose(really really want to see this one) Isabella, Dorothy.
Justin Alexander:8512 Signature:9552
I am running out of time too..June 24th..

It sounds like you really want to try these dresses on and if you don’t you’ll always wonder “what if”, you know? I think I’d have to find the nearest salon that had one or more of them in stock and make a road trip!
I don’t really think you’ll have enough time though with your wedding so soon. My dress took over 4 months to come in, without alterations! Good luck!

i order my maggie in august and just got it last week… i think u should try as simaliar dress -shape design and fabric if u like it then u can order the one u “like.” i agree u may be running out of time since most dresses take 4-6 months to make…

i ordered Fantine! Can’t wait for it to come in 🙂
like @asianyoushi said, try on styles similar to what u’re interested in to give u an idea of which one to choose.

Perhaps with your time line you should just go in with photos of the dresses you love and let them pull some similar designs… you may find one you like even better. I wasn’t able to try on 1 of the 2 dresses I had in mind as I couldn’t find it even in Los Angeles….Without even showing my consultant a photo, she pulled me one that had many of the characteristics of that dream dress and was around $1000 cheaper.

I agree with PP I would try on a similar dresses and see what the shapes looks like on you. I fell in love with a Maggie Sottero dress, but once I got it on I had a ‘eh’ feeling to my suprise! And then I tried on a Justin Alexander (which was my last choice and tried it on because I had the time) and was like “EEEEEEE!” lol
But I would def get to deciding! Not only do they have to to make the dress, alterations take time as well! Good luck!
