- Wedding: December 1969
I am getting married September 26, 09.
Way back last September, I found a great bridesmaid dress at a local shop for only 60.00! I was so excited because it was cute and my girls wouldn’t have to break the bank for a dress.
I talked to the store manager and she said that as long as I order them before April, I would be able to get them.
Last Friday, my mom and I went to the store and I talked to a girl named Kristi. I asked if her I could order 1 size because they had the other two. She called the place that they order from and they said they didn’t have a L. SO Kristi says, "You could order an XL and have it taken in, it would be really simple." So I said, "Can you please call back and ask if they have an extra large."
Kristi does and tells me that they only have a S, XS and a 3X. I said, "well that’s obviously not going to work."
Kristi says, "Well you can always get an XL and have it taken in."
Um. . . you just said that they didn’t have an XL. How am I going to take in a dress that I don’t have?
So we’re getting ready to leave the store and Kristi thanks me for being so nice, gives me a hug and says, "I’ll pray for you."
My dad suggested that we go back the next day and see if someone else is working because this Kristi girl wasn’t all there.
So we go back and another girl was working. She says, "Yeah, we can order that size."
I say, "Really?" and then I tell her the Kristi story. She says, "Kristi has been a piece of work all week."
So at this point, I don’t trust Kristi to order these dresses. My mom finds the manager’s husband and asks him if she’ll order a dress for me. She no longer works the floor.
He says that she’ll get back to me either way and they’ll hold the other two dresses for me.
I haven’t heard anything from them and it’s been 6 days. I was told that if they order, it will take 2 weeks for the dress to come in. Should I wait and see?
Then I was telling a co-worker about this store and she went in there and was told that they can’t order dresses AT ALL.
So what should I do? Should I wait for this dress shop? Should I abandon them altogether because I’m leary of them?
How long would it take to order in dresses from a bridal shop? If I give the bridal shop people my girls’ measurements, would they be able to work off of that?
What would you ladies do?
