I saved $300 on my dream dress!
Posted 17 July 2007 - 02:58 PM
I went to the bridal shop to purchase my dream dress last night- Tuscana Royale.
I knew it was a $1000+ dress. They said they had it and pulled out the dress. They donâ€™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 â€œAre you sure this is Tuscana Royale?â€ She pulled out the book and looked at the picture and said â€œYep, itâ€™s just in a different color- thatâ€™s why it looks different.â€ I wasnâ€™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 didnâ€™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 I must have found an outdated price on the internet since this is a Fall 2006 dress.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 â€œTuscana Vidal in Gold with Gold & Coral Lace.â€ Through my research I knew this wasnâ€™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 ISNâ€™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!

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!
