I know! Especially the stupid sandwich thing, no cheese bacon or sauce, no change in price, want lettuce instead? Oh, that’ll cost you extra….IT’S FREAKIN LETTUCE!

Ok, my mini rant is over now too 🙂

How about when they charge extra for condiments, such as barbecue sauce?  That one really pisses me off!  Haha!

Sucks and unfortunately all the dressed are made the same length I looked at all were designed all for a woman height 5’8 for the designers find that a happy medium.  So if your taller it has to be special ordered and costly, if you are shorter you have to pay to have it altered or ware heels if you can find the right height. All are the same no matter what you have to do to them just like a size 2 dress is the same as a size 20 for the exact same one.  

Then you have the designers who make dresses for big boobs and others small boobs and that is another battle of alterations and size to get.

I had to get an Allure size 10 just to fit my boobs and have it altered a size 4 for the rest of me.  Its all messed up.

You know, being 5’8, I never thought about this.  It is true though.

Yeah, I had to pay more to get a longer length dress at a size bigger than I am (on their recommendation). Now I’m paying them to shorten it and take it in :/

Yep, I’m 5’10 so I had to add fabric. The sample was actually the perfect length if I was going to wear flats but I’m rocking 3 inchers for the ceremony so that’s a no go :/

Oh yeah, my dress is about 6″ too long for me, so I get to have it hemmed. It’s not in  yet, but I’m sure that alteration (and no, there’s no beading or lace, it’s just a straight chiffon hem) is going to be $$$. I’m considering having my grandma do the alterations, but I’m not sure.

@MrsBlueSeptember:  That is what two of the bridal stores associates told me about the dresses and designers that they all come the same length and for a woman of height 5’8.  It was true with all the samples I tried as well, I am 5’6 and put on heels to try them on and a 3 to 4 inch heel was perfect in all the dresses. 

 

On some of the designer size charts it says anyone over 5’8 with shoes should consider getting extra length for their dress.

@ticatica:  This is what gets me. Extra length is extra $ and they add like 6 inches! So you are paying for extra length and then a hem job 

For our wedding we considered doing short dresses just so the girls that would need extra length (3 of my 5) could just order a long dress and cut the bottom off. But my wedding is in December so I did not think short dresses would look right
