- Wedding: October 2011
So today I went to do my “final” dress fitting. Well first of all when I hear “final” I think last one…no return…everything is done….right???? Well wrong…..
Ok lets back up for a minute. This seamstress requires atleast 2 months before the wedding to do any alterations. So I droped my dress off and had a fitting 2 months before wedding. So the “final” fitting was suppose to be done 2 weeks before the wedding….
So today (mind you 8 days before the wedding) I had my “final” fitting. I walk in and she tells me it in the dressing room already just let her know when I was dressed in the dress and she would come in to talk to me! Well My Maid/Matron of Honor pulls the dress out of the dress and I notice that there were still pins in it….She was suppose to sew support straps in the top (ok no big deal…I know you need to make sure the straps are not to small that they wouldnt fit over my shoulders)….she had just pinned the straps on and that was all. So I get in it and my Maid/Matron of Honor zips me up….YAY it looks amazing and the support helped a lot…She then walks in and comes around to the front of me and begin to state the dress was on crocked…..
Ok tell me how you put a dress on crocked……its not like I put the dress on backwards or upside down….. now here comes why I was about to cry….ready for it……
She unzips me and zips it back up and pulls the dress from left side over to the middle and all of a sudden I hear a rip…..she ripped the zipper out of my dress!
What the heck………are you freakin kidding me…..so she was like well you need to replace the zipper…..
I was super mad…..I am very very easy going and nothing bothers me…its a its ok dont worry everything will be alright type of person…..but not this time….I was about to blow. My Maid/Matron of Honor (being the great person she is) intervined….
Then to top it all off she didnt even have the bustle done. She told me that she forgot how it was suppose to be done….she pinned it the way I wanted it bustled but forgot which way I wanted….are you kidding me….dont you think you should of wrote it down!
So I paid to have a zipper replaced and I was like how long is it going to take you to replace the zipper…there is only 8 days until the wedding. Her answer was “I havent missed a wedding yet….I can steam it on tuesday and have you do one last fitting on thursday!”
Are you kidding me…that is two days until the wedding……I told her I wasnt comfortable with gettitng my dress two days before the wedding and that I would need it before that. She said most brides dont pick the dress up until 2 days before the wedding! Well I am not most brides…..I want it before then! I dont want to stress about picking the dress up and something still be wrong on it and its two days before the wedding!
So recap of the fitting….
Not last fitting, she had my dress for 2 months and did do a damn thing on it!
Have any of you other brides have had issues with your fitting and seamstress?
