Maggie's rules?

I was told at the salon that I wasn't allowed to take pictures in the dresses because Maggie is very strict and doesn't allow it... I thought this was kind of strange! Did anyone else go to a salon where they said this? I see pics all the time of you ladies in your dresses!! hmmm...

Yep, however it was only at a few bridal salons that wouldnt let you take any pictures until after purchase.  But, some other places like Bridal Warehouse and such had maggies available and allowed pictures?  I snuck some in of my maggie gowns at a bridal shop before purchasing my maggie at another.  I think it just depends on the shop.. BUT i do know that maggie has strict rules about zip code proximity.. only so many stores within a certain amount of distance can carry the line.

That's crazy lol the lady said if we were the only ones there she would have let me but her boss was right there.. I'm going to put down another payment on Friday and get my measurements so she can be ordered.. I'm hoping they will let me take pictures then! =)

I think a lot of it depends on the store and how strictly they want to enforce things. My bridal shop had no problem taking pictures--they almost seemed surprised that we even asked if it was okay!

I took pics in my Maggie at the salon.  I took pics of other Maggie's at other salons as well.

Three of the four salons I went to were fine with photos in Maggies. The owner of the one that wasn't said that it's because the other dresses that may appear in the background might be by designers who would not allow it. She made a hard and fast rule to simplify.

When I went I was told that shop doesn't allow it because some of the gowns they get aren't out yet or whatever. She said it depended on what dress I wanted a pic of.

Honestly I think it depends on the bridal shop. I just went to a truck show over the weekend and they had some signs posted to not take pictures.

Maybe it was because it was a trunk show that they wouldn't let me take pictures... If it was any other time maybe they aren't as strict.

I think it's more the bridal shop's rule than Maggie's rule. Who knows though, it's all secrets :)
