I’m so sorry this happened.  I hope everything works out.  I did find one pre-owned dress online, it would have to be altered but hopefully a seamstress would help you out because of the circumstances.  Let us know how things turn out.

I hope they were in a fire safe vault or at the VERY minimum the shop had insurance to cover this!!!!!!!!

I’m so sorry for you!  Do you have wedding insurance?  If so, they should be able to help you out with.  The shop should have been insured too, so try and get in contact with them as soon as poss.  I hope everything works out OK xxx

@Cady:  That seems an awfully dismissive response.  If the dress shop where your dress was being held burnt down with the dress inside 20 days before your wedding do you really think you wouldn’t stress out about it?!?!


OP, I am so sorry this happened!  I really hope your dress is okay and if there is any damage that it can be fixed promptly 🙁
