Long story short, I ordered my dress about 10 days ago. I am pretty tall, and my Fiance is super tall (a hair under 7′ – yes really!) I ordered the dress with a 65″ hollow to hem and signed the order contract with that measurement. The bridal store called yesterday to say that the designer can make the hollow to hem max of 62″.
I’m torn because I love the dress, but I did want to wear pretty tall heels so that I’m closer to my FI’s height in pics, etc. The lady said I would get my deposit back if they couldn’t “make it work” and mentioned adding lace at the bottom. I’m so NOT ok with adding lace and patch working together a dress.
We did give a generous length for the hollow to hem, and it might still be ok, but my question is, should I be able to get the deposit back based soley on the fact that I agreed to purchase the dress at that specific lenght? Even if it is still long even with a shorter heel, I feel like the contract I signed was for a specific product, and since they cannot provide that product, the contract is void.
What do you guys think? Any similar experiences?
