    Hi everyone
    I need to buy an outfit for a wedding this sunday, but I dont have so much money to spend.
    Basically, I would like to know, if I buy from a shop, and return the item the next day, what reasons must I give to receive a full refund?
    And also if anyone recommends of any shops who are best at these, it will be very much appreciated.
    Many thanx :)

    That's outrageous. Wear something you already have and don't be such a scally.

    What about just going to the charity shop? When my sister got married I found a cheap shop and picked up a top and skirt for a £1 each. You could borrow something from a friend. Basically what your saying is you want the top end stuff but don't want to pay?

    Last wedding I went to I got soemthing out my wardrobe and wore that.

    I agree with others this is terrible, are you for real on this? How would you feel if you bought an outfit that someone had worn and returned unwashed etc. Check out what you have and adapt.

    If you are going down this route, I think you should buy a VERY expensive outfit, at least a few hundred quids worth, then hopefully someone will spill red wine down it, you then can't return it and you learn a valuable lesson...
    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands

    There was a thread on ebay that had me in stitches awhile back. Basically a ebay shop owner caught out a buyer who returning something as it wasn't suitable. Turns out the buyer with an unsual name was seen by ebay seller at a private party in a resturant in this distictive outfit. So she asked the buyer why she was wearing it at x resturant on the x date!

    You can get some really nice outfits in the charity shops and if you get a good one wear it wash it and resell it or give back to the charity after. Even asking on freecycle for something would not be as bad as buying wearing and returning.
