so i was basically bawling at my last fitting today… this is the third time ive been in and my dress looks worse than when we started…. i wish i would have taken pictures… i was seriously appalled.
one seam was all crooked down my side and the ruching wasnt laying flat because it was all bunched into the seam.
the bust was still too large and one side was bigger (they didnt take one side in enough) than the other.
my bustle was all jacked up and totally wrong… i mean… jacked up…. one piece was too long another too short… it was a hot mess.
the part where my skirt attaches to the bodice was not even sewn on all the way…
i am not happy. and with only 1 week till my bridal pictures and 2 weeks till the wedding im hoping it all turns out okay. im sposed to go back wednesday for another ‘final fitting’….
thank goodness for the owner of the bridal shop… because the alterations lady kept insisting that it was fine…. she must have been blind.

Oh….I’m so sorry. Maybe you should take your dress to another place for alterations if the same alterations lady is going to be working on it again. Are they at least going to have someone else work on your dress as the current alterations lady clealry doesnt get what you want. Good luck 🙂 Sending good thoughts your way 🙂

I am SO sorry!!! Do you know if someone else will work on the dress of if the owner will be personally supervising the final process?
I’m going in for my last fitting today, so I can relate to how you’re feeling!

Well that sucks. I’m sorry. I hope it all works out, because from what I’ve seen in the pics of the dress you look fierce. I know you will for your pics and wedding too.

Oh my gosh…sorry to hear that 🙁 I know how much you love your dress!
I’m sure with the owner involved now that they’ll fix it. Let us know how it goes on Wednesday!

I’m so sorry! Were you assertive with the bridal owner? They really need a talking-to! Unacceptable. Do you feel like they understood your concerns and are all about fixing the dress?

Sorry to hear that! I have a feeling that everything will turn out to be perfect in the end though so try to stay calm and be positive 🙂 remember that no matter what you are the bride, and you will be so beautiful on your day!!!
Good luck and let us know how the final fitting went!

I’m so sorry…think of SYTTD they always make it right! I made an appointment with them today to look at dresses and I was thinking of you because they said a May 14th bride was in there today!!
I’m sure it will look amazing when they’re done. Let us know how it goes.

Oh I am sorry you are having this trouble!! This is my biggest; possibly my only fear outside of paying for everything. So glad the shop owner was listening to you- I hope this all works out for you.

So sorry you are going thru this so close to your wedding! No bride should have to be this upset or stressed 🙁 I am sure the girls (owners) at the boutique will make it right. They are awesome!

thank you everyone for the support, i really needed it!!!!!
the owner is very nice and she was reassuring me after the alterations lady left the room…. i was just a mess…. she told me to tell her everything that was bothering me and i did and she took notes and put a pin by everything i said…. so hopefully wednesday will be good. fingers crossed.
i think she said her sister (who is the other owner of the shop and also does some alterations) is going to be fixing everything. so i hope thats a good sign. im just so frustrated that they practically butchered my dress…. thats not right. and that alterations lady said to me… “well youre just being a bride”… i cried… but instead i felt like sayin…. ‘oh if you mean bridezilla… you havent seen anything yet lady!’ …. UUUUUUUUGGGGGHHHH

@stephanie63087: I think (if you see the owner and her sister did a good job on the dress) that you should thank the owner very much for her help, professionalism, etc.
BUT you need to tell her how UNprofessional and rude the alterations lady was. For her to tell you “you are just being a bride” when they obviously made mistakes is so unacceptable. That needs to be addressed!
Good luck, I’m sure your dress will be beautiful!
