Ok. I can tell you’re pissed. You probably have very good cause to be pissed.

However…you look phenomenal. I mean that. You do not look fat in the slightest. I’m not saying this just to make you feel better either. I’ve got better things to do (!)

Your wedding is just round the corner, so I’m guessing even if you wanted to, this is the dress you will get married in? Rest assured, it’s gorgeous and you will look gorgeous on the big day.

OMG your dress is absolutely gorgeous, and you look so beauriful in it. I also chose an all lace strapless and will be pickingit up for alterations soon. I am on a horrible diet and have lost 11 lbs, but need to lose 10 more by end of next month – ughh!  You look thin, and your shoulders look awesome!  Enjoy your dress and maybe you cna take it someplace else if you feel they didn’t do what you want – just fo rpeace of mind, but frankly, i think it looks awesome on you!

I understand your frustration, and I’m sorry about the way they treated you. However, you look drop dead stunning in that dress. Not fat at all.

so beautiful.   I bet your photos are going to be GREAT.  And, you are marrying the love of your life.   I’m sorry you had a bad experience with them, but in two weeks…you will not be thinking about it.   You will be thinking about how the love in his eyes sparkled as he saw you walking down the aisle in it.

You don’t look fat at all dear..you have an  hourglass shape for being a slim girl. I honestly do not see anything wrong with your dress. But we are always our own worst critique. Have you put on all of your accessories with the dress to see how you look? It may change your mind and ..it may be the nerves of what happened at the bridal shop which is making you ticked off…it may not be so bad…

You look gorgeous and as far as I’m concerned, the dress fits you wonderfully.

I know that we all have little things we’re picky about on ourselves though- so you’re allowed to be upset.

That being said, just send those ladies kinder thoughts then they’re sending you. Don’t let them ruin your day with their negativity. You are going to look absolutely beautiful

Hate the bridal salon, not the dress.

The dress is stunning and you look amazing!

Any chance that you could go elsewhere for alterations?

Are you the bee whose bridal salon tried to pass off a sample that was labeled San Patrick, even though you ordered a Pronovias, and there was lipstick inside the dress? If so — and even if your story is not that one but a different one — I am so sorry that what should be a wonderful experience has been so negative for you.

Regardless of what you’ve been through with this situation, however, you look AHHHMAAAAAZING in that dress, and it is GORGEOUS!! No one whom you do not tell about what you’ve been through will be any the wiser. You are going to look fabulous and stunning on your wedding day!!

Please do yourself — and your FH — a favor and do your very best to not allow your anger, frustration, and disappointment over what has transpired at the bridal salon to ruin what should be one of the most wonderful days (and surrounding weeks) of your life. I know what it’s like to be a perfectionist (I am one! :), to want good customer service, and to not have some of your wedding planning and details go according to plan (I could write many paragraphs, but I won’t :). I also know how all of that frustration and disappointment ended up affecting my ability to truly enjoy some of the events surrounding my wedding and my newlywed life.  Try your best to let it go and realize how amazing you truly look and how wonderful it is that you are getting married.

That place suxs and you should leave them bad online reviews! But I will tell you that you have the most amazing hourglass figure in that dress… if you will feel better just bring it someplace else and have it altered til you like it.

I can tell you a little story that might make you feel better…

Bought a dress went to pick it up 3 months before the wedding and HATED it… still had to take it home. On the way home stopped someplace else and found one I fell in love with they said they could get it in time. They did, but on my first fitting the seamstress stabbed herself with a pin and bleed ALL OVER my dress! but it came out. Second dress fitting she broke the news that the changes they said could be made to the dress when selling it to me really couldnt… but she kept trying. Went to pick it up 2 days before the wedding and they said I didnt need to try it on because I had 3 fittings before. BUT I said I had to try it… I took the dress out of the bag and it had bakeup all over it (they obviously let someone else try it on) AND it was coming apart down the side… as in I lift my arm and you see skin!!! I LOST it!!!!! I freaked out… but in the end they fixed it and it was perfect and looked amazing!

So… it will work out just keep working at it, the dress is perfect on you!

I totally understand your frustration an I’m sorry that this is happening to you.


But I have to say, I think this body highlights what an awesome body you have. Seriously you have an amazing hourglass.

I love the lace at the bottom!


Sorry to hear you had a difficult experience preparing for such a special occasion.  🙁
