Ugh, how stressful! I’m sorry you’re dealing with this. It’s out of your control at this point, so I would focus on your “backup plan”. Can you buy another dress on Ebay that you can re-sell if your dress comes in?

I’m sorry, my ‘hahahahah’s are from happiness. i can imagine what you’re going through. i hope this helps. here is what they did for me in case you haven’t run into my obsessive postings. i asked for the sleeves and finally decided on a keyhole back for practical and comfort purposes. they didn’t offer this style so they overcharged me bit. i wish you good luck. make sure you post a recap of your wedding.

n into my obsessive postings

they really really did. i was so skeptical at first and so anxious, there were nights where i was thinking “wow did i really just gamble all that money away?” but just so pleasantly surprised.

a couple of pointers if you do follow through with them. i’m in the process of ordering my mothers dress for the wedding and i am speaking with another rep, not the same that helpmed me out with presales questions. i had paris for mine and for my mom i now have tulip. both equally kind, but paris is so quick. i was literally speaking with her back and forth for a week straight every night. her emails would get in after 11pm at various times as early as 11 or 2am and the latest was around 4. i would answer during the day and sure enough at night she would email me.

this tid bit might not do anything for you but i thought i’d share.

 

currently i’m still waiting on tulip to answer, it’s been about 48 hours.
