i am still cursing say yes to the dress as the show has since made me question my dress choice. but a few other things have also contributed to that.
i’ve always wanted a plain dress with minimal beading. for those that have seen my dress you know there is beading on the top part of it and on the sides. i can handle the sides as that looks very cute, but the top i was asking the whole time while trying it on can i oder it with out can it be custom done? and was told oh dont worry we’ll take it off for you blah blah blah! i got the grad dress version as i though i’d rather that because of our wedding dress location being a camp ground and there being dirt trails to the buildings.
since i got my dress in august, its in the basement, and watching the show, and hearing from my fiance what he doesnt want me to have, i had a full on mental break down about my dress for two days straight… and poor fiance got to deal with most of it. i ended up sending an email to the company the makes my dress, and an email to the bridal store telling them i am having dress doubts, concerns, etc.
i got an email back today from the bridal store. they emailed me back with three options:
1) bring my dress back in, they charge a 20% restocking fee of what i paid for my dress… the remainder would be free to go towards another gown.
2) they will take the beads off free of charge for me.
3) buying fabric and they will make me a detachable train.
HELP! i am really feeling that i want a dress with a chapel length train, and a dress without beads. has anyone on here had a detachable train made or come with their dress… photos please. my concern about just getting the beads taken off the dress icurrently have is that there may be little holes all over the front from where the beading was sowen on. if i go with returning my gown and getting the wedding dress versioni can order it without the beading on the top.
suggestions, comments, people that are calming by nature who can help me to thing straight again are all welcome.
has anyone else been through a similar dress melt down.
the top gown is the wedding dress version. the bottom one is the grad dress verion that i got.
