So after being paranoid for couple of days (another story — in one of the recent posts I made), I finally went to pick up my dress after work. After waiting a few minutes for someone to finally notice I was waiting in line, I gave the girl my name and the wedding date. She went back and grabbed my dress, and asked if I wanted to take it or try it on (because it was 30min to closing time). I told her I wanted to try it on since I’m here already (thank God I did) and she guided me to the fitting room.
I had initially tried on a size 4, which was a bit too big for me, so I had ordered a size 2. I was really excited to finally have my own dress and try it on for the first time!! Until I slipped it on me and it started to fall right off. What the…
The tag on the dress definitely said size 2, but the size tag stiched inside the dress said SIZE 12!!!!!!!!!!! WTH!!!! And they didn’t even check it thoroughly before telling me to come in??
I had to wait like an hour for the manager to finally sort things out and order me a new dress. I initially had my wedding date set to be June 26, which changed to August 8th after I ordered my dress, but I didn’t tell her that my date has changed. She was frantic when talking to whoever was in charge of ordering, trying to see if they can get the dress in by early June. I didn’t feel bad and didn’t say a thing about my new date. Whatever.
I just hate the fact that I need to wait another month and a half or so to get my dress. =( Has anyone had a similar experience?

That sucks! I wouldn’t have told them the date changed either. It is karma coming back for them ordering the wrong dress size.

@bunnylovesbear – Yeah, I think that’s what kept me cool at the store. I was just patiently waiting and not freaking out. Frustrated, but not going nuts..haha
@Daisylynn — hahaha! that’s right!!

That really sucks! You did the right thing by not telling them your new wedding date.

that sucks they did that, but make them stress… What idiots.
Im glad you didnt tell them your new date. If the june date was still your date, I would have been shouting to high heaven or either crying.

Sorry to hear that. I recently went through similar drama with my bridesmaids’ dresses. We picked them out in Feb. for our August 9th wedding. The store told me to hurry up and have the girls get in and sized and put the deposits down so we can order since they take 10- 12 weeks to ship. We did… within a week. That was like 6 weeks ago. 2 days ago the bridal shop called me and told me that Mori Lee doesn’t carry dresses in Aqua which is what was ordered, and do I know the specific color it was supposed to be ordered in. I said it was the store sample (Tiffany Blue) and she promptly hung up. It wasn’t until later when I called back that I got really upset. I asked when the dresses were actually ordered since they were paid for a month and a half ago and all they would say was they may be shipped as early as the last week of june and they need 3-4 weeks for alterations…. 10 weeks exactly from her phone call!!! UGH.
So……if the dresses ship at 10-12 weeks they arrive begginning to mid July…. and need 3-4 weeks to alter…. ohhhhh good!!!!! They should be ready just days before we leave for our destination (because we don’t all have enough running around to do then) OR the week after the wedding!!!

YUP! ordered my dress back in January and it was due April 15. I called on April 14 to make sure everything was running smoothly but found out my dress still never made to the bridal store. After many many phone calls, come to find out MY DRESS WAS NEVER MADE!!!!! I’m ticked now its suppose to be in by the end of this week but no one knows for sure.
I too changed my date from May 15 to May 22 but I sure as hell didnt tell the bridal store either. They dont need to feel like they have extra time.

Wow that’s such a big mess up! Especially since they usually make the dresses per order, I don’t see how they messed up that badly.
