Hi,

Most times, people do get discounts when they buy a sample dress. However, in your case, you bought a ‘sample’ dress because your wedding is so soon. Usually this means there is no discount on the dress and more often than not, alterations are more expensive.Also, Pronovias flagship stores tend to be more expensive than normal boutiques.

While it would be nice if you could get a discount, you did agree to this dress with that price so the shop isn’t obliged to give you a discount.

Just be happy you got a gorgeous dress. I’m sure you’ll look great!

I would imagine that buying sample gowns would mean a discount, regardless of how close your date is.  I too bought my gowwn at the nyc store.  Maybe you paid full price because fauna is a current dress and not discontinued?  Usually sample dresses are discounted because the dress can no longer be made.

i bought my pronovias off the rack and it was almost -50% cheaper.  it was brand new.  you could tell that it hadn’t been tried on.  mind you, they could have just been trying to clear out their old stock for new stock. 

i am sorry that she mislead you.  fauna is a beautiful dress. you are going to look gorgeous regardless.

pp is correct.  certain bridal salons have dresses marked up more than others.  if it makes you feel better, call them with your concern.  you never know.

All of the “off-the-rack” dresses I’ve seen were out of date samples that were trying to be cleared out. If your dress was current, then I could see them not discounting it because they’ll need to put out an additional sample after you take yours home.

@MidwestBride2012:  you beat me to it! 

OP- if they have to buy a new dress to replace the dress you took “off the rack” then I don’t believe you should receive a discount just because your wedding date is too soon to order one for you.

I actually think you got a bargain on the dress regardless if you got discount or not. Im in Ireland and when I tried on Pronovias the dresses cost between 2200 – 2400 dollars. Which is betwen 1500 – 2000 euro. Pronovias has a very expensive name. You think dresses in NYC are expensive but to me shopping for bridal dresses in here you got a great bargain. Pronovias dresses are fab.
