- Wedding: October 2011
Kay. So here’s the situation: I paid a 75$ ‘hollow to hem’ measurement when I ordered my dress because I really just wanted to wear an old pair of flats and not worry about the extra cost of buying new shoes.
Today it came in & I went in to try it on and the hem was too long! It can’t be hemmed because it has lace right on the hemline – so the only solution was I had to go buy a pair of heels which put me back another 50$.
I know 50$ is not a huge amount usually, but I’m on a super tight budget, so unfortunately 75 + 50 IS a lot of money for me.
I came home & thought about it, and I kind of want to ask for some sort of refund/compensation for the issue – either for the cost of the h2h, or the extra cost of the shoes.
So bees, what should I do? Should I ask for some sort of monetary credit/refund/whatever else? Or is it too late – do I just swallow the cost and carry on? If I do address the issue, how do I go about doing so? They’re holding my dress for me until the wedding so I don’t want them to not take care of it the same way they would for a normal bride (which might be irrational, I realize, but humour me).
