The consultant should have just kicked them out. That’s ridiculous.

I would have gone Bridezilla if childrens had been walking on my train. That’s beyond ridiculous – in what world is it ok for parents to let their kids walk on someone else’s clothes?

@disneybride11: Were there really fifteen kids? Those couldn’t all have possibly been their children, right? Geez.

@disneybride11: At a bridal store? How odd. Ugh, anyway if it happens next time, you totally have my permission to rip the train out from underneath said kids and make them fall on their butts. Send them crying back to their stupid parents.

*note I actually love children. preferably well-behaved though.

It was totally the adults’ fault for bringing them there and letting them run wild. If parents/adults have no expectations or rules for kids, why would they behave?

COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE, and personally I think the shop owner or manager should have said something once things started escalating.

@disneybride11:Hahahahahaha! I was like that is the strangest place to take a field trip to. Hahahaha, oh 5 hours of sleep last night is getting to me….. i don’t think I ever saw anyone under 10 at any of my trying-ons. Wait, that’s not true, at two of my fittings, the lady’s cute grandaughter was there (and very well-behaved). She helped open up all the safety pins….and then dumped them on the floor. Grandma gave her a magnet to pick them up, and she kept dunking the magnet into the container and getting them all stuck to it again. It was so cute.

@disneybride11: Wow you are really nice.  I probably would have knocked down or tackled the kids before they even had a chance to get near my dress!!!  I would have ripped into the adults that were there and the management of the store.  The kids shouldn’t have come anywhere near your dress!!!!!  I think you just earned a place in heaven ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not normally the kind of person that would say anything either, but BELIEVE ME, I would have gone bridezilla on them and flipped out! That is absolutely ridiculous! It’s bad enough when someone has one kid that won’t behave, let alone that many! And if I’m there trying to enjoy myself and going to spend money, you best believe that I am going to enjoy my time there and that kids are not going to act that way! And to the parents, I can’t even say! It blows my mind how people don’t control their children, and then they act like children themselves, ridiclous! I’m so sorry you had to deal with that ๐Ÿ™ I know I would have cried too!

When I went in to try on dresses with my mom, some lady had brought her two sons, approximate ages 6 and 8.  They were both running rampant through the store, went back into the changing area and were making comments about the other brides’ state of undress, etc.  The owner of the store, who was also helping me, yelled at them a couple of times, but they kept acting up.  When I tried on what turned out to be THE dress, one of them had gone up to the second floor.  There was a little balcony that looked out directly over the mirrored area.  The little punk took off his shoes and started chucking them at me.  The owner turned around, saw what was happening, and blew her top.  She escorted them out of the store and explained to the mother (the friend or sister of a potential bride) that a bridal boutique was NOT the place for little boys, especially misbehaving ones.  The mother got all offended, but she stuck around for the sake of her friend.  The boys were left to entertain themselves outside on the sidewalk.

Some people are insane.  There are certain places that you just do NOT bring children.  I normally love kids, but I wanted to punch both them and the adults in charge of them for being that dumb.

I have little patience for children that misbehave in public. I work retail and see it waaaaaay too much, but normally I’m not in the position to tell a parent how to discipline their children.

With that being said – had a child run over the train of my dress, that child would have gotten yelled at by me to watch where they’re going, and then the parents would have heard it from me, as well, something along the lines of controlling their spawn. It’s not a bridezilla switch, it’s a commen sense have some manners switch!

I’m sooooo sorry that you had to go through that at your first fitting, but very happy that there wasn’t any damage to your dress! That’s SUCH a relief!

they are lucky i wasn’t there.  I have NO problem correcting kids in public.  Walmart, Target, grocery stores, whatever.  I just give them that “mom look” and I say to them…  you are not making my experience pleasant and I do not appreciate it it” 

most parents look SHOCKED, some pissed off, i dont give a shit.  this is my world, and if you are gonna be in it…  expect to hear my opinion.  I do not mean that in “the world revolves around me” kind of way, I just mean, how dare you behave that way and disrupt what I am trying to do here kind of way… make sense? 

Omg girl, if i was there with you, that would NOT have happened.  I am so sorry that happened to you:(  ((hugs)) 

at least you know you made the right choice of dress, and make sure they clean those foot prints off it!

Ouch, I totally understand… Even if I was mad, I probably wouldn’t have said anything to them either.

I firmly believe in letting kids be kids… in playgrounds, at home, malls etc. But letting kids be kids should never encroach on letting adults be adults in totally grown up situations like bars, bridal shops, and beauty salons.

Sorry that happened to you!
