i think i picked the wrong dress!!!

I’m completely freaking out because I just noticed that the dress I just ordered this past Saturday doesn’t have the low back I was set on and I think I chose the wrong dress! I was between 2 dresses and I’m looking at photos of both dresses and I think I made the wrong choice! Has my dress been ordered or can I come in and try the other dress on?! I’m freaking out because it was the first dress I’ve ever tried on and I was so overwhelmed! The 2 dresses were the same designer and not even within $100-$200 of each other in price.


They said the dress would arrive in May-June and I’d get alterations from there. Obviously it’s an “all sales are final” policy but is there any hope?!! I bought it full price! Help!

    Hi Jocelyn,
    Call them first thing and ask, every shop is different, if the designer hasn't processed your order you may be okay, I changed my mind about my dress within 5 days and I was able to change, good luck!i think i picked the wrong dress!!! 1

    I could be wrong but I think most bridal salons wait to place the order to leave room for second thoughts and doubts, mistakes, etc. My salon gave me a week to call back and change my mind or cancel. I’m sure they deal with this all the time! Just call Smiley smile

    Jocelyn,
    I would email in case they check them before the store opens, and also call right at opening, the fact that it's the same designer may help your cause as well, that helped me because both of my dresses were Stella York! Can I see your dresses?

    I’m worried if I email them, it’s easier for them to say no. I’m definitely overthinking and panicking!

    I’d email them. If they say no. Don’t answer the email call or go back to the store.

    I would call them ASAP. Some salons allow you to make changes early on. My cousin changed her mind a few days after placing her order and was able to get it changed. Good luck!!

    Anxiety is awful, just relax. You have plenty of time to fix it, and designers/bridal shops are USUALLY quite understanding.

    “And go in If they say no” 🤣 I love it. I’m the same way. Don’t take no for an answer!

    It definitely depends on the designer! I know some start production and get them shipped out sooner than others. Call ASAP. My bridal boutique was not the nicest and I'm pretty sure they would have told me no but it's worth a shot!

    Thank you so much! They’re Essense of Australia ❤️ I love them both but one of the things I wasn’t sure of was the rum color underneath since it’s not as “traditional”!

    I’m the worst with confrontation but if there’s any time for persistence, this is definitely one of those times 😩
