I feel like you got a pretty good deal.  You might have been able to get a better deal, but you might not have.  I say, congratulations on finding a dress! Focus on that.  πŸ™‚

I totally hear you.  I actually forgot to barter because I got so excited about finally making a decision.  I know they will typically do sales tax or 10%, but in the long run, it’s not going to matter so much.  So let it go…it’s great that they were having a sample sale!

I think you should definitely feel at ease with what you paid πŸ™‚

You got a discount, so that’s a good thing! Could you have called all over your state looking for a better deal? Yes, and you may have found a place that would have knocked another $100 off, but it probably wouldn’t have been worth the hassle. Sometimes it’s nice just knowing you have your dress (finally!), so enjoy it πŸ™‚

Hope that helps!

I’m a silly woman and I forgot to barter for my dress. I got all excited and flustered and pretty much just handed over my credit card. So stupid. I got them to take the equivalent of the sales tax (13%) off my veil when I ordered that though. Can you barter for alterations at all?!

Glad to see I’m not the only one who was kicking myself for not negotiating a discount on my dress. For some reason, I just handed over my credit card and didn’t really think about it. I guess I thought I was in a Nordtrom or department store for a split second and it didn’t even occur to me that I could ask for a discount. Especially in this economy!!! EEEeek…

But, like the others said, not a huge deal in the long run. And I did ask for a discount on my alterations and got 10% off. It took a lot of haggling (mostly on my mom’s part) and wasn’t as much as 10% off the dress of course… but it was something!
