Stay calm because there isn’t anything you can do a this moment so wait to hear from them. When you do pour it on thick (water works) let them know that that have ruined your big day and they don’t seem to have a solution to the problem. I mean 6 inches in a hugh oversite on their part. Press the issues that this needs to be a rush order becaus they can make it happen.

Is there any other stores that may be able to have a similar dress in color that may fit?

Take a deep breath.  You have two months until your wedding – they should be able to rush order you a replacement without problem.  I make make tailoring a time crunch, but tailors can do a lot quickly.  My wedding dress tailoring isn’t even starting until the Monday before my wedding (I love my tailor!).

And even if they can’t rush order a dress, you should be able to get fabric and from what I’ve seen, the dye lots thing is kind of BS.  There are only a couple of fabrics (mainly silk) that it is really a concern for yet shops make you think it applies to everything so you’ll order everything from them all at once (ie, they get a lot of your money).  So I wouldn’t be too worried about extra fabric matching if that’s the route they end up having to go.

But push for a new rush-ordered dress.  They screwed up and they still have two months to get you a dress.  That shouldn’t be difficult!

Just calm down, I really feel that the store is at fault on this for ordering the wrong measurements, and they should do what they can to fix this mess. I am sure that something can be done, but I would just wait to see what the designer says about it and just go from there.

Good luck!

The store needs to make this right. Try to stay as calm and reasonable as possible, but be assertive.

Also, make sure your Bridesmaid or Best Man knows  that you are pissed at the store for messing up and that she doesn’t think any of this stress is aimed at her.

I agree with VeronicaH.  Let your Bridesmaid or Best Man know that you are mad at the store and not her.  It is not her fault that the store doesn’t know how to order a dress in the right size.  You need to speak with the store manager and let them know in a very matter of fact way that you do not appreciate the added stress and that you are sure they will make things right and do so in a timely manner that will not cost you any more stress or money.  When they order the new dress make sure they do so in front of you so you know what size and when the dress will be there.  As a plan B I would look at other shops for the same dress and similar dresses that will work.  In the long run it’s more important that she stands up there with you than match all the other dresses.  Good luck!!!!
