So….I tried on my dress a couple of weeks ago (which I bought on ebay) and cried. Cried BAD. I did not like it, at all. And I bought this dress probably 6 months ago, as a rash decision. Not to mention, it did not fit. It’s a beautiful Maggie corset gown, it’s just not ‘the one’. The one, is Maggie’s Adelaide. It’s been it from the very beginning, it was just too expensive for me. Well Fiance and my mom saw how miserable I was and convinced me to go dress shopping again. I scoured this shop looking for Adelaide, and they didn’t have it in the front…but they did have it in the back, waiting to go to the cleaners. And it was a size bigger, so it fit perfectly as a corset. But it was damaged. BAD. They said it was worn in a bridal show. I mean there were makeup stains everywhere, a rip in the back, and the corset ties looked like a dog chewed it up. But I had to get it. And I had some leverage. I made them an offer, as-is and they agreed. Then I took it to the cleaners. They said it should be no problem, we’ll have it for you by Friday (tomorrow). I called just now to check up on it because if they can’t get the stains out, I can’t really wear it. (My mom already fixed the tear and we replaced the corset tie). And it still needs to be hemmed. Well, I talked to the manager and they haven’t even started on it. It’s been a week, and they promised to have it to me by tomorrow. I’m am FREAKING OUT! I will be absolutely devasted if I can’t wear this dress. I know that getting married is not about the dress or cake, or anything like that..I just love this dress and have been pining for it for a year. I want to cry. 🙁
Thanks for letting me vent..sorry this is so long!
