I did a similar thing, since a nearly discontinued dress I wanted to try was only in a city 3 hours away. I drove up there and tried it on. When I made the appointment I told them the situation that I was not from there and just wanted to try the sample. So in my situation, I felt zero pressure whatsoever to actually buy since they knew it would be inconvenient.

Why not purchase the dress in New York and have it sent to you?  You will save on tax costs.  A lot of brides have had good luck purchasing their dress from Pearl’s Place too.

I was just suggesting that you do your fittings locally with a tailor.  It obviously doesn’t really matter.  I tried on many dresses in NYC and ended up purchasing my dress in Louisiana.  It works out, because I won’t have to travel with the dress.

@mainejen:  Generally tax is waived when you are shipping an item to another state.
