Ok, so– I realize this is probably not something to get upset about, but I feel like I need to vent, and I’d rather do it to you ladies than to someone who will be upset or offended by it.
I am having my alterations done by a woman who I have been to many times in the past, my sister has worked with her for years (my sister used to work for a bridal salon) and I know for a fact that her work will be absolutely amazing, and I’ll love it through and through, especially the price.
My first fitting was on 6/8, and she had to add in 2 panels to make it fit me properly before we could accurately mark out the alterations we wanted. 6/14 we marked the dress with the alterations and said to come back in a week– well, a week later, 6/21 she called and said it still wasn’t done, could we move it to 6/26, I said Yes. On 6/26, she said she forgot what she was supposed to do to it, and we marked the dress again, and she said to come back on 7/3 (today). Well, I just talked to her today and she said it wont be ready until 7/6 (friday) now.
Again, I know she’ll do good work, and I’ll love the dress by the time I actually see it– but I have to admit that I am getting increasingly frustrated that my dress keeps getting pushed to the bottom of her list– and I know this is probably because I’m an accomodating bride and refuse to throw tantrums like so many women do. But at the same time, we are less than 3 weeks out, and I still haven’t even seen the bulk of the changes I’m making to the dress, I’m starting to have worries that when I finally do see it, it wont look the way I envisioned and I’ll hate it but there wont be enough time to do anything about it…
Ugh. Sorry ladies, I realize this is mostly just complaining, but I’m just so frustrated right now! I jsut want all of this to be over and done with so I can enjoy being married!
