Buyer Beware! INTERNET DISCOUNT SITES.
Unfortunately the bridal industry has some hidden evils I would like to share with you.
First, remember the old adage, “you get what you pay for.”
Second, it is so important to find a person and a place that you enjoy and trust. This is the most important day and you are involved with this person/place for many months. You want to make sure that you feel comfortable. We want your wedding experience to be fun, easy, efficient and memorable.
There are so many discount internet sites that are “offering” designer merchandise at a fraction of the cost. The risks are high.
Are you getting the actual designer item or a knock off?
What are you going to do with it when it lands on your doorstep?
What if it is not right?
Is my deposit refundable?
Who is going to help you accessorize and alter it?
Who will be your shoulder to lean on in times of stress?
This is your wedding day and the whole experience from shopping with your someone special to that hug on your final day should be perfect. You have to decide what it is worth to you to deal with a salon that has an authorized relationship with the designer and that has a physical place that you can go to handle your needs and concerns. A place that can provide you and your bridal party with all the necessary services from beginning to end . Everything has a price….What is it worth to YOU?
Counterfeit dresses are a problem on internet discount sites. See this link for an example
