Bridal salon charging fee to try on wedding gowns!

A dear client and faithful reader alerted me to a situation being discussed heavily on the Knot. A bridal salon in New Zealand is charging brides to try on dresses. The fees, they say, are to cover cleaning and repair of gowns. They are also trying to discourage window shoppers and "brides without grooms"!

To read the article in its entirety, click here (fixed). Also, take a moment to participate in our poll! We love to hear from brides! Tell us what's on your mind.

If they charged $20/dress around here I'd be broke!
