So here’s the story:
I ordered my bridesmaid dresses from perfectbridal.com and saved about $60.00 on each dress. I only have two girls in my wedding party so it was an easy order. It took them 3 months to get their dresses which is how long perfect bridal said it would take.
Well….when their dresses showed up in the mail low and behold they had gotten each other’s dress. The girls ordered a size 8 and size 12 and my sis who is a size 8 got the 12 and vice versa.
So I called perfect bridal and told them about the scenario and they were nice enough to give us our $20.00 shiping fee back which I thought was pretty nice of them.
So, my sis lives in Texas so she shipped my other bridesmaid (my FI little sis) her right dress and I shipped my sis her correct dress.
Well my sis shipped the dress USPS Priority Mail 12 business days ago and it hasn’t arrived yet. She did not get delivery confirmation or insurance. She called the Post Office and they said it should have been there in 2-3 days and that there is nothing they can do!!!
Just great!!! My wedding is 49 days away what am I going to do!!!!
The color of the dress is impossible to match too! This whole dress thing has really frazzled my nerves.
I am including one pic to show you the color of the dress which is cinnamon
The other dress (the short one) with the sash is our actual bridesmaid dresses and the color sash the girl has on with the brown dress is the same color sash we used for the cinnamon colored.
Sorry so confusing!!
What should I do, actually what would you do?

Oh wow that sucks!
I guess all you can do is wait a couple of more days and then if it still doesn’t come then you are going to have to make a decision – can you possibly find a dress similar to the colour of the sash? I don’t know I am trying to be helpful but I can’t imagine being in your position – I am soooo sorry and I hope everything works out!!!!

Oh no!!! Could you call the company and see if you could find a sample or something of the dress for her to wear?
I’m sorry this happened. 🙁

My fiance said he will call them (the company) and tell them that we NEED the dress. He is so helpful when he knows I am about to CRY!!! He said he will pay a $100.00 rush fee which I think is foolish! I am trying to search the internet to see if anyone has one for sale even if it was the chocolate brown color like in the pic I can make it work.

Oh no good luck! I’d offer you up my bill levkoff bm dress but it is bright green and won’t help =(. Maybe ebay? Maybe you can dye something?! Call around and see if any bridal stores have an off the rack one you can beg or borrow! Or buy last minute? Hopefully the company can wrangle something.

Well my FI called the bridal place and of course their manager wasn’t in yet. On top of the cost for the dress it would be another $160 to get it in my bridesmaid hands by October 14th and we get married the 23rd! I know her dress will need to be altered which I am sure we can find her someone to alter on short notice. I woke up this morning and truly thought it was all a bad dream. 🙁
