I do not think there are any laws about this… Salons who don’t allow pictures are just greedy and stupid IMO.

@FutureMrsClayshulte:  Certainly once you buy the gown, anything is fair game because you OWN the gown.

As for teh bridal store issue, some designers demand that the stores do not allow pictures of a dress before it is purchased and usually if that’s the policy of one designer at the store, the store doesn’t allow any pictures so that theie policy is consistent. Designers do this to protect teh integrity of their product. If you can take multiple pictures of yourself in a dress and these pictures show how the dress fits on you and the quality is good enough for significant details to show, there is a serious risk that people will order a knockoff and the knockoff industry has been driving up gown prices a lot. Deisgners are trying to protect their designs and keep costs down however they can by trying to make it harder for frauds to copy their dresses.

I actually ran into trouble not because of the bridal salon/designer but because some random person took the pictures and offered my dress for sale on youtube. It took many weeks and many complaint reports but youtube did remove the video in the end. Because I didn’t blur out my face it felt really like a massive violation of my privacy and I still can’t look  at those pictures without feeling bad. Be careful with what you post online!!!
