There is hope for brides who have dress distress. Long story but if you’re in a blunder over your dress its worth the read.
After searching FOREVER about brides who second guessed thier dress choice with no resolution to the problem I was facing, It has finally come to an end.
Here’s the story,
I bought my dress way back in June, the sample was in a silver colour and i asked the lady specifically if it came in diamind white and she reassured me not once but twice. She even printed out a receipt with the colour description being diamond white. So I waited and waitined with anticipation. I found a pic of my dress on the net that scared me so i put a post up on here asking for pics, a very kind girl sent me pics and the dress looked good. Then, my friend got engaged and we went dress shopping and the store we were at had my dress in diamond white. I asked to see it, they brought it out and the bodice was completely covered in silver. I cried. I literally cried.
I felt as though I was kind of tricked into a dress. For a bride to to adamantly ask that the dress comes in diamond white, you would think the sales lady would tell me that there was silver accents, but she didnt.
So I was in a serious funk, I had already laids out $800 deposit on a dress I HATED. So while I was out with my friend, I started to try on more dresses because deposit lost or not, I wasnt wearing it.
I found my absolute DREAM DRESS!!!!!! I FELL IN LOVE, I had the wow factor that I didnt have with the first dress it’s all I could think about.
So I called the store I originally bought my dress at, made an appointment with the manager of the store and explained the whole situation. It was a small bit of a struggle but after a long conversation we came to an agreement that I would pay a restocking fee for the old dress but my deposit could be transferred to another one. So, I now I have my ultimate dream dress. It cost me a small fee but it’s totally worth it. If they werent willing to help me out I would have just left the entire deposit anyways so I feel like I won at the end.
So anyone having problems witht thier dress, second thoughts, something wrong, all it takes is an appointment with the store manager and explainng your situation in a friendly manner.
I am officially 110% estatic with no second thoughts or worries at all! WOO HOO!!!
