- Wedding: June 2010
ok – so last night was my pick up date for my dress…well let me back up some – two weeks ago was my last FITTING for my dress – and THAT night my bustle was supposed to be done. it was not. the alterations were – but no bustle…
so we made another appt for friday the 18th at 8 p.m. – which normally David’s Bridal doesn’t even DO 8 p.m. appts but the male seamstress was all “i’ll make sure I take care of the dress myself.”
well – my dumba$$ realized a few days ago that friday is my husband’s birthday! yes i suck i know. i mean i’ve KNOWN all along it was this month but my brain has been in wedding mode for so long…
so I call DB’s to have them move me up a few hours…they weren’t happy about it but said i could come in around 5:30 and it WOULD BE READY after 3:30….
so my BM and I get there at 5:30 and guess what. not ready yet. as in they weren’t DONE with the bustle yet.
now granted, i know i was asking them to work around me when it’s june and they were VERY busy…the seamster was working with another bride (who DID go ‘zilla on them but for other reasons)…so BM, her friend that was with us, and I were very calm and patient…
6 o’clock comes nothing…the girl who was helping the seamster told me “6:30 it’ll be ready”…ok then 6:45 and still nothing…i’m getting a little “loud” with my friends – but again, i’m a very patient person – however my hubby and I had reservations at 7:30 – which I called and re-made for 9.
so – it’s now 7:15 and STILL NOTHING – in fact, they were STILL WORKING ON MY DRESS.
FINALLY at 7:50 I went back there to tell them I had to leave and I’d be the first one there in the morning and my dress had better be ready….but it was ready right then as I went back there.
so all in all it got done and it looked beautiful and is now at my MOH’s house…but yeah. it just sucked because it was my hubby’s birthday AND they had tried to ask me “well, we can have it ready by wednesday” and i told them “no you will have it ready TONIGHT”. i’m getting married next SATURDAY.
but yeah. my BM was about to go postal – and again i’m just too patient and nice but my ‘zilla ALMOST came out in me.
pisses me off though that in JUNE they only had TWO people working…and that’s just in general – not like it’s just one night. they only have two employees doing EVERYONE’s alterations.
