Ugh.  That sounds really sketchy.  I don’t think it would be out of line to talk to the bridal shop about fixing the situation.  I hope they work with you and I’m sorry I don’t have specific advice!

I agree with the aboive post- definitely take up the situation with them.  There really shouldnt be a reason that a 10 would arrive before an 8 as far as I know.  I would approach them calmly about it, explain your case, and see what they come back with.  IF all esle fails, take it elsewhere for alterations, and tell them that.  If they were really trying to milk money, they’re losing it either way now so they may try to smend the situation.  good luck!

That is kind of frustrating that you had to order a size larger- however, purchasing a dress 4 months before you wedding is kind of cutting it close- especially with how busy wedding season is this year- so you can’t really blame them for wanting you to get your dress earlier….

I don’t know much about ordering dresses so I don’t really know why a size 10 would arrive before a size 8 (anyone have an answer to that?) but I’ve heard from countless brides that they are told that a dress will arrive at such and such a date and it ends up arriving months earlier. I don’t know if a differnt arrival date means they were trying to get more money out of you. If no one else can explain it, ask them why the size 10 would have arrived before the size 8. If there reason is legitimate, let it go. If it still seems a little fishy, I’d just not give them any more of your money and have it altered elsewhere. Do you really want to worry about fighting with a company to give you a differnt size dress when you agreed and ordered the size 10 yourself?

Also, they may have told you to get a size 10 to be on the safe side because the sample size 8 you tried on may have been stretched out from so many women trying it on and they wanted to make sure your dress wasn’t too small. I know a lot of shops that do that. Sometimes the size up ends up being too big, but it’s better to be too big than too small.
