Oh my goodness, that woman is an angel! What luck you had that she was in town!! I’m sure that she will appreciate the flowers, and maybe on your anniversary next year you can send her and her husband a gift card to a nice place to eat, just to thank her again for such a wonderful deed. Wow! So glad that it all worked out, that is AMAZING.

Wow! I’m sorry you had to deal with that stress, and I’m really glad things worked out well for you! : )

Definitely review both places — could you also get a partial refund from the alterations dept?

I’m soo glad to hear it all worked out! That’s a story to tell your future grandkids about 😀 

I think the Lady that botched your dress in the first place needs to hear about this.. sounds like she needs an attitude adjustment. I mean, as a seamstress, not pinning something and taking out the boning is sooo wrong in itself, but this is your wedding gown, you only wear it for ONE day. When you’re working with something as important as that, I think you need to make extra sure that everything is perfect.
