    Listen to this-

    I went to the bridal shop to purchase my dream dress last night- Tuscana Royale. Click the image to open in full size.
    Click the image to open in full size.
    I knew it was a $1000+ dress. They said they had it and pulled out the dress. They don’t print the names on the tag, just the item number. It didn't look right to me, and I thought it looked like Tuscana Vidal. I asked her “Are you sure this is Tuscana Royale?” She pulled out the book and looked at the picture and said “Yep, it’s just in a different color- that’s why it looks different.” I wasn’t too sure about it because the dress even had a different material. They were identical except for the material.

    Even with doubts, I took her word for it because she rang it up and marked that I wanted Gold with Gold & Coral Lace. I knew Tuscana Vidal didn’t come in that color. I figured she showed me the wrong dress, but I was Ok with it as long as she ordered me Tuscana Royale.

    On the agreement you sign, they just write the item number and specific instructions (here she wrote the color I wanted.) I signed it thinking- Awesome! Got the dress I love for $300 cheaper. I must have found an outdated price on the internet since this is a Fall 2006 dress.

    I get home and pull out the fabric swatches she gave me for Tuscana Royale and found my receipt that was attached to the order guide. On the receipt it said “Tuscana Vidal in Gold with Gold & Coral Lace.” Through my research I knew this wasn’t a possible combo. Since all sales are final, I freaked a bit. But I knew they had to change something. The dress they ordered ISN’T POSSIBLE.

    I called this morning- yep, they made a mistake. Tuscana Royale is $1100 not $778. They corrected it and ordered me the Tuscana Royale, but gave it to me for the $778 price for their mistake.

    Can you believe that? I saved $300 for their mistake!!! I was stressing about ordering a dress $300 more than my budget, and now I don't even have to worry about it! I'm so excited!

          OHhhhhhhhh, that is SO gorgeous! That lace work looks like it's just gold though. Do you have another pic of it with gold and coral lace or am I not seeing the detail. None the less, that is such a beautiful dress! Good on you!!!

                  When I get home I'll take a pic of my sample. It has a tiny bit of coral in it. It's really gorgeous beading.

                  I can't wait to see it on. I tried on the "Tuscana Vidal-posing as a Tuscana Royale." They are very similiar in cut so I'm not worried. I just want to see the whole dress in color. Not just the tiny sample!
