- Wedding: June 2011
Oh, this sucks! I’m sorry for all the trouble and understand you must be so stressed about this, especially so close to your wedding day. I’m glad you thought ahead and paid with PayPal and opened the dispute right away. That was not an honest seller if she did not give you the full details on the dress. I really hope you can resolve it and get your money back – I know that won’t get you your dress, but at least you’ll have the money to put toward another dress.
Preownedweddingdresses.com has a lot of people on there who actually represent salons and they sell their samples. You may have some luck there. Some of them take returns, some of the dresses are new and not even samples.
Don’t kick yourself – it’s hard to pass up a deal on a dress when you KNOW you couldn’t afford it otherwise. It’s an emotional decision! Just keep yourself reined in and be professional and polite about getting back what you deserve from the dishonest seller.
So she posted two different ads for the two different dresses? If you clearly told her you wanted the Allure 8634 and she sent you the other, she is in the wrong.
It’s nice that you’re so understanding and trying to work out a deal with her, but honestly she owes you ALL of what you paid as long as you return the dress to her. It sounds like she may have scammed you, which totally sucks. I really hope PayPal comes through for you!
First of all why are you only asking for a parital refund? You deserve the entire $900 as she blantantly lied to you. Ugh this makes my stomach hurt reading this, I am so sorry. i really hope you get all your money back.
Put pictures up of the dress you got and what you were suppose to get. Then we will see if they are similar or not. Either way that really sucks:(
You should be asking for the total in return if you payed for one thing and got another, no matter how similar it is.
can you post the bee’s username and the thread in which she said it was the allure8634 she was selling?
I would definitely edit your paypal claim for the entire $900. She purposefully misled you and sold you the wrong dress. Make sure you don’t delete any of your communication, as you’ll be able to give it to paypal to support your claim. Take pictures of the dress she sent (and if possible take screen shots of her ad with pictures in it if she had them, as well as the second ad) and find a stock photo of the dress it was supposed to be.
Oh I hope this all works out for you.
1. You should demand a full refund and return the dress. You would probably have to pay for shipping it back.
2. You should go to local bridal boutiques and try on sample dresses. I bought my dress as a store sample when they were changing their stock and got a hefty discount. The sample is 2-3 sizes too big but alterations only take 2 months from a sample that’s too big.
i understand the whole py it forward thing but really you should not reward someone who lied to you in order to get money. i would ask for the whole cost back and offer to retun the dress. have you possibly tried Ebay? there are a lot of allure dresses there for farily inexpensive or for something that is the same style that is a great price and you can get in a hurry check out forherandforhim.com i know its not allure but it might be more comfortabe price and time wise.
just doing a google search for the p850 pulls up the add here in the classified section and if that is the add you are referring to the sell price listed is $750 so eaither way it looks like you got ripped off.
I agree, you should get a full refund. Don’t try and be overly nice and make yourself a doormat.
You paid for an item and received the wrong one, end of story.
If you have a sob story you can have alterations done even faster. I booked mine in advance but its only taking 5 days for the first fitting with a lady who usualy insists on 3 months.
I hope that you get all of your money back, so you can buy the dress you want!!
You deserve the $900 back, no doubt about it. And the seller can have her remake confusion of a dress back. If paypal doesn’t work out… then you could possibly win in small claims court. Did the seller ever send you a photo of the dress including the tag?
Btw, I’m so sorry this happened to you, you must be incredibly stressed. We’re here for you!
