You Really Do Get What You Pay For…

Val V saying yes to dress backview*

You’ve dreamed about your wedding day since you were a little girl. When you look in the mirror you want your wedding gown to look and fit perfectly, yet be affordable.

So, how can you find the most exquisite dress at the lowest price? Should you look online? Should you purchase from the bridal salon that promises they discount all their dresses?  The answer is actually very simple and can be summed up in the phrase, “you get what you pay for”…

If a bridal shop is willing to “beat anyone’s price” for you, they must be desperate for business, and willing to cut corners to sell you a dress. What exactly does that mean to you? If a store (or even worse, an online retailer) extends an unbelievable discount to you, beware! “You get what you pay for!”

An example of a horror story is shown in the photos below… Can you tell the difference between the fake, unflattering, knockoff dress on the left, and the stunning, detailed Allure Designer Gown on the right?

There are many premier bridal salons that are committed to ensuring your gown is exquisite, appropriately fitted, and delivered as promised. This is the type of business you should work with, one that is trustworthy and an authorized retailer of your dream dress. Before you buy, be diligent about checking the reputation of the shop by talking with friends, looking at online reviews, perusing their Facebook page, and blogs. This is how you can avoid a disaster on your wedding day!
