I'm so excited! not to mention, I got a free 2 night honeymoon for purchasing the second dress. That makes it a little less of a hit... if you tilt your head and look at it sideways!

    oh, i am SO excited. it's Mori Lee style 5172... But it's a brand new dress and not on her site yet! Dang it! i just want to stare at it!

    Oh, and an update on dress #1 store. my sister went there to see if they were closed. The owner was there. She was totaly nonchalont about the whole thing and just kept saying "UPS didn't come yet today." Well... UPS came while my sister was standing there! They are on COD!!! (that's bad). And get this... three LARGE boxes (not sure what else they could have been besides dresses) were delivered... but she didn't pay for them and the guy loaded them back on the truck and left!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME! My sister was standing right there! Crazy.
    i'd get down there right away and demand your money. tell them face to face that you're calling the bbb and your cc company to dispute the charges if she doesn't give you an immediate cash refund - not cc b/c that may not work. if the phone is disconnected and they're not paying their cods then it's only a matter of time before they disappear for good.

    but yay for buying dress #2!!!!!

      Trish, I don't know how I missed this thread, but I agree with Lauren (and the other girls on here.) Get down there now and demand your money back. Be VERY FIRM with them. Do you want me to kick the owner's A$$ for you

        Holy crap! I missed when this thread started. I am so happy you were able to get dress #2 in such short order.

        I don't even know where I'd be if I were you with the shady salon. I know you are up to your ears with everything wedding related, but you've gotta turn these f-ers into the BBB. I would demand every cent refunded. What craziness!!

          I am sooo glad that you were able to get the 2nd dress! And a free 2 nite honeymoon, I think that worked out very well.

          Now its time to get in the other store's A$$. You should rally all of the troops & head down there & let them know that you want your money back. Also, definitely, definitely, definitely report them to BBB. Too bad we can't all take a trip & walk outside the store picketting with signs! Better yet, this would be a great story for your local news channel.

            OMG!!! How horrible!!! I am glad that you bought the second dress though and have that...but like everyone else said, you need to keep on them to get your money back!!!

              Wow, what a day you've had! I'm so happy you got your 2nd dress (and the 2 nights free!). I agree with what everyone else said, report them to the BBB, go down there and demand your $ back and maybe even call your local news to do an "investigational report".

                omg, what a biotch! March your booty down there and get your money back! Seriously, I have no idea how you can remain so calm (besides the fact that you got your amazing dress on order from a MUCH better bridal salon!). This is beyond ridiculous.

                On the bright side, when does your NEW dress come in??

                The new dress comes in in two weeks. So, I'm still pushing it for alterations, but I am fine with it. I'm VERY excited.

                Stupid shady bridal stores.
