Hm, I think your trying too much to keep everything under control. Don’t turn into bridezilla! Smile

Even if she won’t clean it, nobody will ever notice these minor stains or what on the hem of your dress.

I think that you have a right to be not so pleased, considering the cost of wedding gowns! I think you handled it fine, since they are cleaning it for you.  I probably would have skipped the sash if the dot is tiny, but I’m sure it will be fine!

I think you have a right to be upset – this is your wedding dress!

But don’t worry everything will be cleaned and will be perfect for your day!

Maybe natalia was reacting a little to your tone or post title. I’m definitely sorry that your dress is dirty and I really hope the seamstress fixes it, but I hope you’re not worrying too much if a little dirt on your hem is your “worst fear.” I’d be much more afraid of some irreversible alteration – but your dress fits like a glove, which is the most important part! (for the dress anyway . . .)

I would have been upset about that too!  Your dress should not be dirty before you wear it!  I think that you dealt with it well.  And I am glad that she offered to clean it-even if her demeanor changed a bit-oh well, she probably didn’t want to, but probably knew it WAS her fault!  I hope everything works out well for you.  🙂

I can’t lie. I probably would have gone bridezilla. When I take my gown for alterations, it had better be just the same amount of cleanness when I pick it up as when I bring it in.

You handled yourself very well. You should be proud of yourselfSmile

That sucks!!!  At least she is going to fix the issue:)  Good on you for staying clam, although if you had gotten upset I think it would have been justified.  I mean you brought her a clean dress and when you picked it up it was dirty.  I don’t see why people throw around the word bridezilla just because you stick up for yourself.  If it were a normal dress you took in and she gave it back dirty would you not expect her to clean it?  Good luck!!!!!
