Please note:  Whichever bridal shop you visit, sales advisors will catch on sooner or later if you are trying on dresses with the sole purpose of having a dressmaker reproduce the style that suits you best or buying one on the internet.   Please do not expect shops to be co-operative when it is obvious you are deliberately wasting their time.
