I consider having an "in store" style number that has to be decoded the sign of a dishonest (or at least sketchy!) bridal salon. It basically means that they don’t want you to be able to shop around for the dress and find out if their price is fair or not compared to other stores.

I don’t know about style numbers, but I know that removing the designer tag from a gown is iillegal, and you should DEFINTELY steer clear of any store that does THAT. 

I recommend being frank with the store and asking for the style number on the gown. Tell a white lie and say that you need to relay it to your Out of Town bridesmaids who will be ordering from their local dress shops so that they can have alterations done conveniently, if you must, but ask for the style number. If they give you what’s on the tag, clarify with them by asking if that’s the same thing that ALL salons would recognize the dress by. If it is, you should be okay. 

Good luck!
