i must be frustrated lately bec i have been having a few vent posts.
anyway, i am getting irritated at my bridal salon. long story short, they sold me a veil that isnt available in white to match my gown. they told me white isnt avail 2 months after the order was placed, but that if i want the ivory, i need to go ahead with the order because it takes 4 months to manufacture the veil. they reassured me the ivory is very pale and should match, but i told them to stop the order and id compare the ivory sample when my dress arrived(orig eta of aug). they said id have plenty of time to order another veil from a vendor who could manufacture in a couple weeks if it didnt match.
so when the dress came in (early thank goodness) the veil didnt match. and so now they recommended to me a different veil and i found out today that IT ALSO takes 4 months to manufacture. wtf?? im irritated because if it really takes 4 months to make veils, ive gotta get one ordered this weekend. if my dress hadnt come in until aug like its orig delivery date, id never have enough time to order one. i lost out on two months of veil shopping because they told me the ivory one would match, which i feel like they should have never done. i know i made my own choice, but i still think they should have known better. plus its irritating that a veil that takes 4 months to make cant be made in white. where r the veils they said could be ordered in a few weeks and y do they keep showing me $250 veils that take so long to make?
you can bet tomorrow i will start asking salons specifically how long it takes to make that veil, can you guarantee that the veil can be made in white. or to be shown ONLY veils that can be made in white with less than 8 week manufacture time. geez. i guess i gotta be a bridezilla to get things done right. glad ive got 4 months still to get a veil because evidently it takes a while.
DEEP BREATH!! ok so vent over. and the question now becomes: IF YOU ORDERED YOUR VEIL FROM A BOUTIQUE, HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOUR VEIL TO ARRIVE FROM THE MANUFACTURER? ill even add a poll 🙂 thanks for reading and hopefully empathizing!
