      I am in Illinois and that is even crazier, they seriously charged you 20 bucks to try on a dress.  I guess I am glad I havn't run into that yet.

      good luck!

        JoanneIreland- The store name was Bridal Elegance in Illinois.  I found a list online and so far have not had any luck but I did call them today and ask for a list because online they say "and more"  so I am wondering if it is an "and more" dress.  I'm going to call again and hopefully I get someone else and they just tell me so I can find it.  I will  play find the nice lady who tells me what I want to know game.

         

        PS.  My cousin studies abroad in Ireland and absolutely loved it, she actually returned to visit a friend not to long ago.

        What was the name of the store you went to? Did you try checking their website, they usually list what designers they carry (most break it down by bridal gowns, MOB, bridesmaids ....), which might help narrow your search. Good luck!!

              vbbbtk- I live in Illinois also and I went to a place that did the same thing, they cut the tags and would not allow pictures, I found 2 dresses there that I really liked, but I went online and found dresses that were similar and went to another place that wasn't as strict and I found I really enjoyed them better and actually found my dress there. I would suggest trying that, take the pictures of the dresses that are similar and tell let the people at that place know what you had tried on, they might have it or know of something similar that you might end up falling in love with.

               

              One of my friends went to the same place that I did where they cut the tags out, she had found a dress she really liked and when she asked for the designer name they told her it was a private label to that place only, she went to another store and found the same dress! I dont know why they have to be like that it made me not want to go back to retry those dresses on, and in the long run I ended up finding another dress that I love so it all worked out in the end. Good luck!

                  Those "Secretive" stores make me NOT want to buy a dress from there just on principal. Makes you feel like you're being screwed (price-wise) and they know it. The place I bought my dress had great service, and let me take pics with my mom to remember the day. That's how it should be, IMO.
