THANK YOU SO MUCH for this posting!

I am in SF (not too far from you) and i have been shopping for a 2nd dress – i had a posting 2 days ago about my finding where a Justin Alexander dress costs $1950 in Beverly Hills, but I ended up buying it for $920+tax here in SF.  AZ offered me $900 but since i dont have the ability to “go” to the store, i rather pay $20more in SF after negotiating w/ the lady.

That shows how much mark up the dress is.  i could’ve bought 2 dresses if i were dumb enough to go with beverly hills store…

@FinallyGettingMarried – Out of curiosity, was that Marylinn’s or Panache in BH by any chance? I tried to negotitate for a couple dresses there before but was offered only 15% off the tag price for a FLOOR SAMPLE off a $5300 dress, plus a “$500 alterations package”, which I thought was ridiculous.

meliss, yes, Panache is pretty expensive, i couldn’t believe they sell it for $1950 when the average is probablye $1200-$1500 range

we all learned from this – never to buy from beverly hills, we’re better off to go to a local city to buy it.

thanks for the great information! It helps me understand a bit more when I’m going into the store… I hate when they are super pushy, or putting dresses on me that I absolutely HATE (ie mermaid style, when  I had already tried the style on with the same consultant and told her I did not like to show that much of my figure… yet she persisted) so now it  makes sense!!

Thanks for the tips! I have a Venus (informals) question: I ordered in mid Feb and was told to expect delivery in early June. Does that seem realistic? I had a short engagement and my wedding is in late July. Do I need a Plan B, just in case my dress is late, or will I probably be OK? Thanks again! 🙂

@jadeblue: I know each designer is different, but if it helps I ordered my dress (pronovias) in mid-march and recently got an e-mail saying she would be here 2nd week of June, so yours should be fine really, seeing that you ordered a month earlier than me. If you are unsure just call the store, it won’t hurt to ask… Smile
