I'm very recently engaged and have just started planning my wedding. My wedding is going to be completely non traditional . The wedding will be in Jamaica and I'm looking for a knee-length wedding dress (not necessarily white - could be pink or white - leaning towards the pink though).
I visited Peggy's Bridal (where I actually got my dress for my previous wedding 7 years ago and received great service). However, my last visit was anything but pleasant. I am on a bit of a time crunch-an October or Novemeber wedding is what we are thinking right now. Because I'm looking for a nontraditional wedding dress I think I might like to get a bridesmaid dress. At Peggy's I was told they couldn't order just one bridesmaid dress and told me I was out of luck (because of quantity and time constraints). I was treated extremely rudely and definitely felt like my business was not important since I won't be spending thousands of dollars there.
I know many places sell bridesmaid and special occasion dresses online (ann taylor, jcrew, the limited, etc) but a dress I like on a model often looks terrible on me in person and vice versa. I would really prefer to buy a dress from a local dress shop... but I'm striking out. Susan Deborah and Juliana's said they could not accomodate me. Any recommendations for places to get a dress (singular) with in a fairly short amount of time. I'm very frustrated and really discouraged by the way these dress shops have treated and dismissed me.
Any recommendations/thoughts regarding dress shops?
