    I would most definitley let them know but I would speak to the shop owner prior to telling them to give him a chance to redeem himself first.

    Ughhh yuck!! That is a bad situation! I would be on the side of honesty is best, but if your parents don’t bring up the price then I’m not sure I would bring it up. You are right that it may create anger and negativity and it sounds like your parents didn’t mind paying for your gown and tiara. I would be upset about the price difference, but it sounds like there is really nothing that you can do about the change in price now. Better to just move on I think.

    you know after dealing with another unscrupulous vendor today i am beginning to be embarrassed to be a wedding vendor. people SUCK. i have no idea how or why anyone thinks it’s okay to basically steal money from someone else and give such a piss poor excuse (excuse the language) i would report them to the bbb or at the very least ask them for a credit. surely he knew if the price was going up. also can you call the manufacturer to see if there was a price increase?

    Tell your parents so they can dispute this charge with their CC and talk to the BBB.  This is probably against the law.

    You’d already put the deposit down on the dress, that locks the price in for you. I’d take it up with him, not your parents. And I’d make sure everyone with an Internet connection (and the BBB) know about this, also.

    Could you check with other dress shops for the dress and see if the price went up there as well?

    If not, talk to the store manager again. It seems like he might have taken advantage of you since you really wanted the dress and kept coming back and he knew you were going to come back. I would keep bugging him…but, I’m a ..beep beep beepity when people are unfair to me and LIE to me.

    If all else fails: report them to the BBB. You can try to dispute yours charge with the cc but it’s going to be difficult for only partial. Though you could just return it and buy it elsewhere since he tried to rip you off.

    I would seriously call her and have a talk.  I think you also have bridesmaids as witnesses too!

    I think she took advantage of your parents b/c they weren’t with you when you originally came in w/the bridesmaids.

    Now you have the dress, I’d call her and say you SAW that ticket on the dress and that it is sad she deliberately changed the price.  Tell her you have a witness what the CORRECT price of the dress is, and that since you had selected it, the price was agreed upon already.

    Tell her you’ll contact BBB to solve this issue if she doesn’t come clean.  Just don’t take your dress there for any alterations!  I’d never go back in there!

    Did you put down the deposit and then he raised the price when you paid for the rest of it?

    Or did you talk about putting down a deposit and then when he rang it up… he charged you more than what you had discussed the week before.

    If it’s the former, then that sounds super shady and possibly illegal.  A deposit should lock the price in (especially since the deposit probably listed the price on the receipt).

    But if it’s the latter, then I dunno… you had a chance to dispute the price at the register?  It may be shady, but I don’t know if that’s illegal…

    Either way, with the internet he can’t afford to treat customers this way!

    Definitely report him to BBB.  Sorry he wouldn’t make it right for you.  That’s just terrible.
