Is it okay to call bridal shops and ask for particular dresses?

Okay, I've done my homework. I looked up all the designers that my local bridal shops carry, found the particular dresses that I like, and wrote them down.

Is it okay to call the shops and ask if they have the particular dresses that I like? Or will they even go to the trouble?

I've got only one day next month to shop with my mom, aunts, and god-mother. It'd be nice to try on the dresses that I particularly like with them around.

Comments?

Dear Jamie,

Sure, why not?

"Hello, I am interested in XYZ123. Do you have that dress in stock so I can try it on?"

What's the worst thing that can happen?

"No."

Of course it is. That's actually what I did both times I went dress shopping. I called and asked if they had the particular dresses I was looking for, and I also asked to make an appointment. Trust me it will make life much easier. The second time I went one of the dresses I called about ended up being the one. Its will worth it. Good Luck and have fun.

I don't see anything wrong with it. It would definately save you the run around to find out before hand if they have the dresses that you like or not.

It is so ok to do that. I just hope you have better luck than I did. I found four dressed that I loved in pics and found out what stores sold them in my area. Out of 20 shops only 3 of them said they had those dresses in stock (each store had about 2 of them). My mom and I went shopping at all of the stores and guess what? NONE of those stores had ANY of the four dresses I had called about. I was so mad but instead of making a wasted trip I tried on some dresses and did find the one I think I'm going to get. So, just keep in mind that even if they tell you they have it they may be lying just to get you in the door.
