Please, look for a cheapie cute white dress… You could find something for $100 or less at David’s Bridal or even a regular store. That dress seems only wearable in white. Try to get your money back, but the refund process would take too long, so, just look for a cheap white dress somewhere else, I am so sorry that happened to you. Please, tell people who the seller is once you get the dress, so they know not to deal with this individual in the future. This is absolutely unacceptable!

I would try to find a different dress to wear…that dress looks awful. I’m sorry!

MiaMoi:  I don’t think bleaching it is a good idea. I agree that it does not look well made at all. I would definitely dispute with Paypal.

Since the quote says peach and ivory and the dress looks peachish and ivory/white, I think you should explain to paypal exactly what you ordered and how this is different. I know you said you wanted ivory and the dress is tan but the quote says peach and ivory and that is kind of what you got- although I’m sure the quality is much different and the picture she sent of the fabric looks a lot different than the final product.

David’s Bridal is having a huge sale right now, with 50% off previously reduced items. Maybe you could find something for a deep discount. I hope everything works out!

MiaMoi:  I’m so sorry that you are having to deal with this! That is extra stress that you don’t need right before your wedding! 

You mentioned that this dress was for your reception. Does this mean that you have a dress for the ceremony?

Are there any department stores in your area that have a bridal section? Could you rent dress from someplace? Or could you borrow someone else’s dress, such as a relative or close friend? I know those aren’t ideal, but you would have something to wear.

I am really sorry, but I don’t think that dress is salvagable at all.

Is there perhaps anybody you could borrow money off and go get a cheap off the rack dress?  I don’t usually say go borrow cash off a relative, but if I was in your situation I have several close family members I could go and show the photos and say I am so sorry but could I borrow a small sum so I can have a decent dress for my wedding, and pay them back afterwards.  They would be happy to do it for me if something like this happened, could that be an option?
