I’d be pissed at both Mother-In-Law and the store person. Sorry it happened to you.

Ummm…that sucks!  How rude!

How much have you already put down on it? Could you cut your losses and find a dress that has the things you want ?  Like a train?

If you keep this dress, I would speak to them about letting the train back out for sure.

I had a seamstress who made me feel the same way and, with the bees’ encouragement, I got my dress and took it to someone more professional. My advice to you is to do the same. Now my dress fits great.

If the issue is just the back zipping up… can’t you add a corset/lace up back? My mother made my sister’s prom gown with a zipper in the back, I have larger ribs and boobs than her and when I decided to wear that dress 4 days before prom, my mother altered the back to be a lace up to accomodate my size. If my mom can do that in a jiffy, so can a professional seamstress.

Get your dress away from that woman. No one needs to comment on your weight, especially if they don’t have any constructive comments to add.

I’m soooo sorry that happened to you.  What a horrible experience.  Definitely find someone else to do your alterations!

@Pinksapphire:  Sorry this happened to you!  I would be calling that shop and making her put the train back the way it was, not charging me for it and taking that dress elsewhere!  If people bother you about starting early, f them.  I started early too and I am so thankful.  There is no reason to treat people so rudely and that is that alterations woman’s problem not yours!!!  Go back in there with you hear up high and tell her you did NOT authorize that change and you want it fixed.  

ETA:  sorry, I got a little excited there. πŸ™‚

Oh sweety, not a good day for sure! I would be very upset at the alterations woman & the shop owner! Neither of them were appropriate! The owner should have been there, afterall, she was the one coordinating this. πŸ™ Deep breath!

I am planning our wedding early as well and am always being questioned as to why… let’s face it, you & I will have more time for details if we work through things starting now. Yes, our ideas will change on some level, and yes, we may have to alter things that were “set in stone”, so what… WE GOT TIME! πŸ˜‰

Ughh.. this sucks!  I’m so sorry this happened to you.  I can’t believe they took the train off of your dress not to mention all of the horrible things that were said… I vote for a new shop altogether.  Get your dress and get the heck outta there.

@Pinksapphire: How annoying. I have dealt with similar comments coming from my mom, not my Future Mother-In-Law.

I’d tell the shop owner what happened. The owner might not realize how the seamtress talks to the customers. If I was an owner, I’d be grateful. I would not want someone so negative working for me. Especially at such a stressful time.

I’d ask them to give you a discount due to the train and bad experience – then take your dress and run πŸ™‚

I’m so sorry this happened to you. It’s very brave and clever of you that you are that you are just making new plans to get the dress fixed right. And geez, how rude is it to speak about weight like that to a bride? I hate it when silly people ruin what should be a good experience! I send you good wishes and hope that you don’t have to deal with anymore of the silly people in your planning. πŸ™‚

Also, I super agree with danni ddha that you should tell the owner!

You should really have a discussion with the shop owner, and tell her how horribly you were treated, and because of it, you will be getting alterations done elsewhere. She needs to know how her employees are treating her customers when she isn’t there
