rmrsln2010:  I am sorry you had to deal with this woman and her poor attitiude. Try to remember to not let one surly person take away your joy. Do not give her the power to do that to you.

I would phone the store and ask to speak with the owner or manager and let them know about her behavior. There is absolutely no reason that you shouldn’t have been allowed to take your pic. You have already bought and paid for the dress. It’s your dress. It’s not like you are doing comparison shopping before your purchase.

You need to find a new seamstress ASAP.

rmrsln2010:  I will never in a million years understand why people who work in the wedding industry seem to enjoy messing with brides who could be in a potentially fragile state (and I don’t mean just you, I mean all of us- wedding planning is stressful, and they don’t know what we may have going on!). At least you know so you can warn any of your friends in the area to ask to work with the other seamstress when their time comes. 

I’m sorry she was so rude!

rmrsln2010:  that is terrible! what a sour puss (I have a different choice word in mind)! but 1) Amazing job you lost 30lbs! that deserves congratulations in its self if you feel beautiful and better about yourself that’s all that matters! 2) Good for you sticking up for yourself and calling the manager. she deserves to be told she is wrong even if you’re having one bad day you need to leave it at the door when you walk into work. putting other people down is never the way to go. especially standing in your wedding dress!

I’m so sorry that happened, and I’m really glad you called the store and won’t have to work with her again. Her behavior was unacceptable. I’m a person who is okay with the upcharged costs of wedding related things, but ONLY if the vendors treat the bride with kid gloves and the knowledge that for many brides, this whole process is a very fragile one. (I also think it’s fine if anyone is NOT the kind of bride that takes the wedding and wedding planning Very Seriously.) In my mind, that’s what brides are paying for when alterations are so costly, etc etc – Amazing Customer Service.

julies1949:  +1… Talk to a manager and tell her EXACTLY what you told us. My heart broke *for* you. My seamstress wasn’t the most endearing, and she ruined the entire dress experience for me. However, she was not even this bad. Take your dress and go elsewhere. What an awful woman to make a bride feel that way!

That lady is a bitch! I’m really sorry that happened to you. If I were you I would go straight to the owner & just go off! No one deserves to be treated like that,  no one.  I’m sure that you’re not the first person to be treated like that, and you won’t be the last,  unless you talk to the owner. I wouldn’t be a complete nightmare to the owner but don’t be quiet or meek either. Go in there with confidence and strong and let them know that this is completely unacceptable.  I bet they will take care of you somehow,  which you deserve after being talked to in that manner.  And, even better yet, you won’t have to go back to that bitch! Seriously,  please stand up for yourself.

rmrsln2010:  First, huge congratulations on your weight loss! With that in mind if you feel beautiful in your dress that’s all that matters. Why do we need shapewear to make our bodies look more like how they’re “suppose to look”. You’re suppose to look like you, not some fake version of you. And if you feel comfortable and beautiful that’s what your FI will see on your wedding day. If the seamstress does her job correctly then the dress will look good on you, however your body is. I’m glad you called the stored and you won’t have to work with her again. Don’t let her bring you down. People like that are miserable and want company.

Sorry this happened to you! I hope you complained, you don’t deserve that treatment.

I looked back at your previous post, your dress is gorgeous and you look fantastic! I would never even guess you were plus size at all. Screw the seamstress, you look great!
