I am so glad I can come here to vent. I originally purchased a beautiful dress with a boatneck and cap sleeves. I took it to the dress maker and the front was uneven, the embellishments were coming apart and the seam was crookard. After being told this could be fixed, she also mentioned it would be very expensive and the neckline would not sit the same.
In tears, I contacted the bridal shop where I got my dress and explained the problems. They looked over the dress and rang the dress maker. I was feeling so overwhelmed and not knowing what to do, but the manager of the store let me choose a completely new dress from their new collection. It also came with a chiffon jacket which I was so excited about, because I would have had to have gotten a jacket elsewhere since we are having a winter wedding in our church.
So after a morning filled with disappointment and confusion, I got a completely new dress which is more flattering that my original dress with a cute little jacket that fits perfect. Things obviously happen for a reason and as much as it was so upsetting I feel incredibly blessed that this happened.
3 months and 8 days until the big day!
