I only went to one place ( in aus ) and they said no photos. Which I think is stupid seeing the dress I liked was on their website so I could have had it done as a replica anyway. I just went with second hand instead!

It’s madning !!!!!!! No photos all over brisbane except one shop at chermside . I ended buying from the states and just took a leap of faith Never bring able to try it on . May not have been the best idea but sure was cheaper than anything in Australia similar . What’s up with the price differences aswell why do we pay so much more than american brides .

I’m in the US and photos were not allowed either which I don’t understand the reasoning behind it. You are only allowed once you say yes tot he dress. I think it is nice to go through the photos before you make a decision because you notice things that you may not have noticed at the shop and it’s a good way to compare dresses. When I went shopping, my bridesmaids took photos when the salesperson wasn’t looking. It was usually when she was looking for something or checking on something for me.

aussie_25:  I’m in the U.S. and most places won’t let you take photos of the dresses. I was told a lot of bridal salons don’t like it when customers take the photos to replica company to get a dress made. 

Places like David Bridal’s let you take pictures, but their dresses don’t cost as much as some other designer brands, so I don’t think replica dresses would be an issue.

I went to 3 stores and all of them let you take photos. It may also depend on the designer as well. I totally understand it about trying to avoid replicas being made (I considered that route myself). I agree that it is nice to go through the photos before you make a decision because you notice things that you may not have noticed at the shop and it’s a good way to compare dresses and how you look in them.

it’s so stupid! You can find the photos on the designers’ websites. You can check them in details. Who needs a replica based on the photos from the bridal shops? I want to take photos because I need to COMPARE the dresses which I tried on.
