One of my bridesmaids dresses has not come in yet and I am getting married next Saturday. We finally figured out that the bridal shop simply forgot to order the dress. It is a purple taffetta floor length. What can I do? I feel like I am out of options. I’ve called a few stores and apparently Impressions just doesnt carry any samples in this fabric/color combination.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Anything would help right now!

Luckily, all girls have different dresses, the only common characteristics was that it had to be floor length purple taffeta. Does anyone know if other designers carry similar purple taffeta so that I could perhaps purchase their sample dresses?

First I am so sorry!!!!!
Second – is the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress store taking repsonsibility and helping you search out another gown? If this was/is their error they should without a doubt find you the dress, have you communicated that with them?

Unfortunately, the store is not cooperating and keeps feeding us lies. They always give us a different story and get so nervous whenever we call them.
Does anyone know of immediate delivery bridesmaids stores like House of Bride in Chicago?

Why do I always hear about bridal stores lieing. I think if you have time you should go to every bridal store within 100 miles and look for a dress in purple taffeta. I am so sorry to hear this
And you shold take them to small claims court. Seriously they deserve it!

JC Penney has this dress on sale:
Dillards has this dress:
I wouldn’t waste time driving to every store. I would however PHONE every store within driving range and ask if they have a purple taffeta dress in stock.

In the short run, is there any chance you could get something made in the meantime? A local dressmaker or something?
And in the long run, sue the mothereffers.

It turns out that Da Vinci and Impressions are sister companies. Da Vinci carries a sample dress in purple taffeta and we are going to go ahead and purchase that one and get it altered. I am kind of annoyed that I worried so much about this dress, I think it just shows that during the last few days before the wedding everything is so stressful that even the smaller details will drive you nuts!

I hope you don’t have to pay for that last dress. I’m so sorry you had to deal with this extra stress!!!
