OMG!!  That is so terrible.  I haven’t been to a fitting yet, so I don’t have any stories, but that is just plain awful.  It seems like you handled it well (I wouldn’t have!).  I would try to get in touch with the manager again.  There is no way her employees should be treating customers like that.  Eventually they’ll lose business that way.

I would call the management. Tell them your story, and if they don’t care, tell them you are anot afraid to share your story with the local newspaper, blogs, and all your engaged friends. 

That is so horrible!!

I’d write to the shop owner, write to local papers, write EVERYWHERE, demand compensation!!!

That is awful! I hope that your dress gets fixed appropriately, even if it’s too much to hope for some sort of other compensation. I live in Alexandria, and now I’m so glad I didn’t go to that shop. I had a bad experience at Hannelore’s though. Maybe it’s an Old Town bridal shop thing.

I would hound the owner and/or manager until you get a refund for their sorry excuse for alterations. I’d also see if the media is willing to get involved; you can write all the Yelp reviews you want, but nothing gets to a business like a public shaming via the news.

@MissMetro: Holy sh*t! You can’t make that stuff up. Hats off to you for your sense of humor about all this. I completely agree that the management owes you big time — a huge apology, and a refund. What a joke, like the seamstresses were punishing you for their miserable lives. Blech. So sorry. I hope you find a wonderful seamstress elsewhere. Check reviews at other shoppes before you go and good luck to you! I wish I could give you my seamstress but I’m across the country. 🙁 Hang in there! You will be beautiful in your dress on your special day!

She should be fired, and I don’t say that lightly. She accuses you of gaining weight over lunch and stealing earrings? Sorry, she’s gotta go. I would call the manager and tell him your alterations need to be comped or something.

That is so terrible!!!!  I am so sorry you had that experience =(

You seem to be handling it very well!!!!  Obviously it seems like the store owes you something for all the horror you have now been put through.  But my experience so far with my dress store is showing me that most of them dont car much about customer service.  After all is said and done I hope you post reviews on Yelp and City search and the like so other brides arent subjected to that!!!!!

OMG I am so sorry!

You should be contacting the news stations, the newspapers, any and all management and demanding a public apology as well as a refund.

That is beyond unacceptable!  I would have been SO upset… I would have been crying right then and there.

I would get a refund for the alterations, that’s the least they can do for all of that trouble and disrespect!
