I was recommended to an alterations place by a well known bridal shop. I called and she was very nice. I was suppose to go this weekend to her and I sent my bridesmaid to go there and get her dress taken in a bit at the hips. Well my Bridesmaid or Best Man goes in yesterday and this woman tells her to put in on. My friend comes out and this woman tells her it is the ugliest dress she has seen and could not believe a bride would want her bridesmaids to wear it but then told her not to tell the bride. My friend left the dress and called me. Within 10 minutes I was there and picked it up. The woman asked if I was the bride i SAID YES I AM! I grabbed it and slammed her door. I was so angry I couldnt believe the nerve of this lady. So heartless. Anyone else deal with people like this who just should have kept their mouth shut? Is this dress not appropriate for an out door courtyard wedding?
This is the dress….

That is so incredibly rude of her! I think that dress is adorable so I don’t know what her problem is! Plus, she should keep her mouth shut. I’m sure she sees a lot of things that are truly ugly but it’s not her business to say. She should do her work and get paid for it.

Ummm I think that dress is super cute! I’d be excited to wear it, since I’d know I’d get to wear it again. I wouldn’t worry about what she thinks!

I couldnt believe her! Why would you talk crap? Your getting paid to take it in not voice your opinion. This woman owns the store. I literally googled it and left a bad review on everysite this morning. It was a total of about 7 which were the top ones. YELP being one of them LOL

I cant say that I’ve encountered that problem yet, but that was totally uncalled for and rude! The real reason I’m posting though is to tell you that the lady must have been blind. I think that dress is great and very similar to what my bridesmaids are wearing! I’m just amazed that she said it was ugly and couldnt believe a bride would have her friends wear it… it’s not ugly, not to mention I have seen sooooo much worse! 🙂
I’m sorry you had such a bad experience with this lady, but I hope you can find someone else who will do your alterations for you and keep their mouth shut!

I actually own this dress in red, so no, this woman doesn’t know what she is talking about. I wore it for Valentines and got nothing but compliments on the dress.

Even if the dress was hideous she should of NEVER said that!! How does she know who your Bridesmaid or Best Man is to you anyhow?? Your best friend, sister?? And what if your Bridesmaid or Best Man had picked out the dress herself!!
By The Way, the lady has style issues because the dress is adorable!! I was thinking it was going to be bad!

Thanks i feel better LOL To be honest for a minute I really wondered if it wasnt right for a bridesmaid dress. I mean it isnt ugly but i questioned it being in the wedding.

She must of been having a horrible day. The dress is really pretty. Perfect for a outside wedding.

Let it go…. It’s a matter of personal opinion! Why do you care what she thinks?! I’m sure as a bride you have too many other things to worry about than the personal fashion opinion of someone not even attending your wedding. Don’t let the stupid stuff stress you out.
