Maybe try calling, some people are bad at returning emails.

I find that with many retailers, calling is more efficient than emailing.  You might try that. (And I certainly hope no one would yell at you for asking a simple question!) Good luck!

Definitely try calling! I also found that the website information is not always up to date. Their emails may have changed, or some of the salons could even be out of business. Good luck! That’s a pretty dress.

Just call them and ask if they have it so you can try on the specific dress you are looking for.  They likely won’t order it in if they do not have it. I called around looking for a Lazaro dress. Alot of shops didnt have it. I just crossed them off the list and went to the next shop. I would just create a list of reputable shops and call them all.

I don’t think the fact that they aren’t replying has anything to do with you committing to purchase the dress. The people who work there might be overworked, or just flaky over e-mail! I would definitely call during business hours.

When you call, say that you are very interested in the dress and want to try it on before you decide to buy it. They’ll put the phone down and check and see if they have it (make sure they check the size, too) and then come back on the phone and give you an answer! If it’s yes, great. If it’s no…they probably won’t order the dress just for you to try it on.

I have heard of one store that does this (for plus sized brides only). It’s PS Bridal in NC (they work with Bridal Mart…that’s their authorized retailer). If you are a size 16 or above, this could work: http://www.plussizebridal.com/policy.asp
