- Wedding: January 2013
I LOVE Etsy. I knew I wanted to buy something from it for my bridesmaids’ gifts, and figured I’d do it before the rush of finals and the holidays and try to avoid waiting til the last minute.
So back in SEPTEMBER, I ordered 7 personalized robes from an Etsy seller. From her reviews, I knew orders could take up to 5-6 weeks, but I never guessed it could take more than 4 months! I only heard from her if I sent her a message; she never gave me any updates on her own volition. When I’d write, she’d give me an arriveby date, and when they robes didn’t show up by that time I’d send another message. She’d respond by giving me a new arriveby date. She said she had issues with her supplier or something.
By early January, I started panicking thinking they weren’t ever going to come and was trying to come up with another idea. But they recently showed up, thank goodness!
And I love them! I’m so happy it worked out. They’re so thick and fuzzy and the embroidered names was done very well. I thought it would be fun for the girls to wear while getting hair and make up done (since it’s winter), make for cute photos, and be a useful gift. I hope they like them!
Here is what they look like:
