My seamstress called me this morning, as I was walking in to get a pre-wedding facial, and she let me know there had been a professional robber in her building (Upper West Side Manhattan).
Of the hundreds of wedding dresses she has in her apartment, the theif took mine.
Yes, you are reading that correctly, I have no wedding dress. And my wedding is in two months.
She is a custom designer and has offered to make me a new one for free from scratch, but I just thought I would share this with hive for a little commiseration and support.

are you serious??? OMG!! i’m so sorry!! that’s horrible.
the good news (always look for the silver lining): you’ve still got almost 2 months – which should be plenty of time to make a dress.
still sucks tho. sorry!

Wow – I’m sorry to hear that you’re going through this stress, although it’s great to know that the store will sort you out with a dress free of charge. As nybride09 says, you still have 2 months so I’m sure it makes it easier to look on the bright side – imagine getting this call the week before your big day!

Wait. Yours was the ONLY one stolen??? Does she have insurance on the place or anything to help you out? That sucks – i’m so sorry!

omg! I am so so sorry! But don’t worry, you will have a new one. I HATE stealing! My apt was broken into in brooklyn, and I lost everything including irreplaceable items. But upper west, huh? That doesn’t happen TOO much up there. They only took your dress? I guess you have good taste.

Are you sure she just didn’t mess it up or something? That sounds like a load of crap to me. The robbers only stole one dress out of hundreds? I’m glad she’s going to make you a new dress but will you lose money? I would ask for the cost difference if the new dress is less then the old one.

Hive hugs to you! I however, take the same sentiments as Kate and wonder if there is another story that goes along with this story?
Why your dress? (I am sure it’s gorgeous though) Just make sure she is held to her contract and that the dress is ready well enough in time for any last minute changes.
Again nothing but love and hugs to you. This is awful!!! Don’t fret and let us know how it is resolved b/c we’re in your corner!

Aghhh poor girl!!! The bright side is that you WILL have a dress, and it won’t cost anything extra for you, other than some sadness and stress. I’m sorry! I guess that means your dress was just so stunning the burglar couldn’t resist it!

I’m hoping this is just some sort of awful mix up and your dress is found. If not then I’m so happy that you’ll still have a dress on your wedding day. GL and ((((hugs))))

My fiance and sister thought maybe she was lying to, but she is incrediblely talented and she can fix anything so I don’t know why she would lie. Very, very strange. She charges thousands of dollars for custom gowns, like 3,000+ which is a lot more than my dress was, so I think I am getting the better deal in the end. It is just hard when you grow attached to something. No wedding is perfect, eh?

Wow I’m so sorry to hear about your situation!
It sounds really strange, as others have noted above. Since YOUR property was stolen, you should ask to see the police report that she must have filed that proves there was a break-in and what was stolen. If you’re shy, tell her you need it for your “records” or whatnot. If she can’t produce a police report that is a red, red flag.

Wow!!! That is really a crazy situation, but sounds like a true blessing if you get a custom gown! At least you will have a good story to tell about your wedding!!
