I hope you get what you’re after.

I still think you’re way too emotionally invested in this. And I hope you’ve spoken to an attorney, not just law students. There’s large chunks of your legal theory missing. Best of luck!

sarahsmiles2018 :  I understand that weddings are important, and that this never should have happened. You deserve financial compensation for what happened, I don’t think anyone is denying that. At the end of the day though, you’ve spent 6 months of your life fixating on this and obsessing about it, to the point that you got sick. Frankly, I don’t believe that any amount of money will make you feel better, and I urge you to try to come to terms with what happened, and move on. Weddings are just parties. Outside of 1-2 framed photos, most people never look at 95% of their photos again after a year or two. Your marriage, and your life together, are what matters, and I hope that time shows you that this is, in the bigger picture, upsetting and unfortunate but ultimately insignificant.

I generally hate what I call “the pity Olympics”, but try to gain a bit of perspective…right now, elite runner Gabe Grunewald is dying at her home of rare cancer at the age of 32, while her husband is heartbrokenly updating her fans. They, and many others, would do ANYTHING to trade places. ABSOLUTELY, 100%, file your suit and seek the monetary compensation you deserve…but then move on, and realize that this is small potatoes in the grand scheme of things.

sarahsmiles2018 :  So what are you hoping to accomplish? This woman admits it was her fault, after the courts rule in your favor? She closes down her shop? I genuinely wonder, will that make you feel better? You’re seemingly so far down the rabbit hole that you’ve lost sight of perspective, and have fixated on this for over half of a year. You’re so distraught over something that, in the big scheme of things, sucks but is just a blip in the radar, that you’ve made yourself sick. You can’t ever get these six months of your life back, of your marriage back, and if you live anything resembling a happy and fulfilling life, an ill-fitting wedding dress will be something you never think about in a decade, or two decades. Get your refund, make sure your truthful reviews are out there, and, for your own peace of mind, move on.

Yeah, I really don’t understand admonishing the OP and telling her other people have it worse. So what if people have it worse? She’s not posting about it every day, she hasn’t posted in months. OF COURSE she’s pissed about it – weddings are a big deal, she clearly spent a lot of money on it, and to have to look back at pictures and the video focusing on her ruined dress (and it was just completely ruined)…I mean there are no words. I’m really sorry you are dealing with this, I hope you get restitution, and meanwhile if everyone can have a little compassion rather than judging you over your anger that would be great.

sarahsmiles2018 :  You’re missing a lot of elements to your case. Those two laws don’t cover everything.  You need to talk to an attorney.

Do you think once it goes through court that you will be able to finally move on/close the book on this REGARDLESS of the ruling? I hope seeing it though to the court brings you what you are after OP but I also hope for your own peace of mind that you can live with the outcome if it isn’t ruled in your favour. My fiancé is a lawyer (albeit he is in financial law so works w corporations/firms as opposed to civil/small claims) but he often sees rulings sway the opposite way so I just hope your prepared for whatever outcome is delivered.

I don’t think anyone who has read this thread disagrees that your dress was ruined and shouldn’t have been touched by this seamstress to begin with but I think there is a general concensus that you do need to move forward and try and remember what your wedding day was actually about – marrying your best friend and celebrating that with loved ones.
