To make a long story short, future mother in law decided she wanted to also have cultural persian ceremony as part of wedding. No problem- except that this meant I need 2nd dress. Budget is maxed out so the only option was ebay dress from China. All positive feedback, what could go wrong? Picked out this dress:
It was supposed to be here by mid april, hadn’t arrived. Seller said 1 more week- still nothing. A few days later, tracking number posts, yay! Except wait- it just says electronic info recieved- item has no actually shipped. Wedding is in less than a month, no dress in sight. I filed a claim with ebay so i will probably get my money back, but that doesn’t help the fact that now it is too late to order another dress.
I am so disappointed, depressed, you name it… I checked craigslist, local shops, etc… nothing is remotely close to my size or cheap enough. I am officialy screwed. I can wear my original wedding dress but the persian ceremony is done seated and my dress is NOT flattering when sitting down. The pictures are going to look awful, it is going to be very embarassing.
I just want my wedding to be over with.

@lgriff2013: What about David’s Bridal? Do they have anything off the rack?

What about buying a sample off the floor?
And are you SURE it’s not going to get to you in time??

What size are you? Maybe a bee can sell you a gown or find one for you.

I think the seller is BS, the dress hasn’t even shipped if they actually even made it. If it hasn’t left China by now, it won’t be here by the 26th. The budget for this dress was under $200- because it wasn’t something we ever planned on. All the floor samples I have seen are too expensive already and would need alterations- over $100. Tried DB, no luck. Also tried thrift shops, dead end.
I wear a street size 2 or 4. I was looking for a fuller skirt so that it makes a nice photo seated.
I am just SO tired of this whole wedding ordeal.

@lgriff2013: I hate to say it but that site doesn’t look like the real Jasmine’s Bridal that is always getting good reviews. This is it: http://www.jasminesbridalshop.com/ I think you got screwed.
I agree with PPs, check out Davids Bridal, Alfred Angelo, Brides by Demetrios, and see what they can offer off the rack.

No I didn’t order it from that site- that is the designer photo of the dress I picked. It was a seller off of ebay making the dress in the link.
