    D, none of the above

    I paid about a 40% deposit when I ordered it and paid the full amt plus alterations the day I brought it home.

    None of the above. I bought my dress from Pronovias in NYC. 1/3 was due the day I bought it, 1/3 is due at my first fitting and the final 1/3 is due the day I collect it.

    I paid my deposit of $300. 
    Then at my first fitting I paid the $700.

    I still don’t have my dress in hand but I did have my last fitting a few weeks ago. I will be picking it up Friday eeeeeeeeeeek

    My Dad put a certain amount down when we ordered (40 or 50%) and we pay the balance when I take it home.  The alterations are done be a seamstress outside their salon (recommended, in my home town).

    Had alterations done elsewhere, so paid in full the day we picked up…..but it had to be in cash for final payment.

    @neyamee: Some dress shops charge the full price when you order. That’s what mine did. Others require a down payment with the rest due later. Either way, it seems like you knew that you paid in full before the dress would come in. Now it’s just a little later than you thought. What’s the problem again?

    at my bridal salon you pay 50% the day the place the order and then the remainining balance the first time you come to try it on.

    I put 1k down as a deposit and the rest is due at my final fitting.

    I think as long as you have a good contract you’re safe.

    I paid the full amount the day I ordered my dress, July 29th, and it is supposed to come in in September…so that’s at most a 2 month wait, if it comes in on the very last day of September.

    I wanted to just put a deposit down that day and pay the rest when I pick my dress up, but they said they didn’t do deposits and I had to pay the full amount that day. So, oops. Spent 2x as much as I intended to that day so August is going to be a tight month for us haha. Worth it though because I LOVE my dress!

    @neyamee: Most special order dresses take at least that long to get in. I’m waiting 6 months after ordering (and paying in full). Where did you get it from/who’s the designer?
