@Treejewel19:  HUGS!  I’m so sorry!  I actually have a pic of you in your dress as a potential dress inspiration!  (hope that’s not stalkerish!)  I think you look beautiful in it and I’m sure they’ll be able to get everthing fixed for you!  Good luck my dear!  P.S. I’m in love with your ring as well!

@Treejewel19:  Ohhhhhhh I’m sorry you feel this way so close to your wedding! I really hope you can solve those problems ! Can we see a picture of your dress? How come the beading on your dress is crooked? Is it defective? If it is I am sure you will get full refund and well be able to get a new one! I wish you luck! Hugs

@Treejewel19:  Awww I’m so sorry that your veil situation and the beading is a fiasco! The salon should be able to fix it and hopefully the designer will make a new dress and get it to you ASAP. I looked up your dress and it’s GORGEOUS! I think the veil that you’re describing will look stunning with that dress. Why the dress regret?

Oh no!  I’m so sorry to hear about your dress/veil troubles!  I remember seeing pictures of your gown and I thought it was gorgeous. Looked so much better on you than the model picture.  Are they going tofix the jewels for you?  Or are you having to get an entirely new dress? Hang in there!

Okay – that officially sucks. The veil thing should be easy to fix (get the RIGHT one in, geesh, silly mistake!) but the dress? It almost sounds as thought the thing is NOT meant to be. What are they going to do about it? Can you cancel the order based on the beading flaws and try something different?

@Treejewel19:  YOU look STUNING!!! Dress is absolutely beautiful!!!! However if you are no longer “feeling it” then I do hope you will get a refund and will get yourself a new dress you’ll love! Or do you want the same dress just not defective? Maybe they just can exchange ? Love the dress though! Beautiful!

I am so sorry, you must be feeling very uneasy about it. I really hope they will be fixing it for you ASAP.

My custom wedding gown from Etsy was made wrong in the chest area because the sleeves were too close together–it was actually my fault because I measured it wrong–but it’s fixable since I’m having the sleeves sewn farther a part to be off-the-shoulder. I cried and cried because I did love the dress already, but this small detail was tearing me apart. My sister came to the rescue and said so many positive things about it, which helped–even though, to me, it didn’t look right. I sort of can relate to your situation, it’s a big deal because you want every proportion to be just right and feel beautiful in it!

I really hope things come together soon for you. In the meantime–eat some chocolate, take a bubble bath, take a walk, whatever makes you feel relaxed! ๐Ÿ™‚ This sounds like a very frustrating situation for any bride. Details are so important and it seems as if there is no room for error when your wedding day is around the corner. Keep us updated, I want to hear good news in the future!

P.S. I will say that you look amazing in your gown. I bet if you wear a white paper bag you still look just as gorgeous! ๐Ÿ™‚ Best wishes, Bee.

P.S. I will add that I have learned to embrace some of the “imperfections” of my gown–after all, it is compeltely handmade and that’s natural. It’s stuff that no one else would notice. Keep that in mind–it might not be as bad as you think.
