- Wedding: September 2010
So I’m trying to order extra fabric to match my dress so I can do some alterations. I can’t find anything locally that matches well enough. So I call a couple of bridal places to see if it’s possible to order from the manufacturer.
The first one says “Oh it’s $30/yard and it will take about 3mos to get in”. They didn’t even ask me what I was looking for but I knew that $30/yard is a huge markup plus why would it ever take 3 mos to get a cut of fabric?!
The second place says $20/yard (still a markup – it should be about $15 but I’m willing to pay extra for an exact match) and he promises to call and make sure it’s in and can be shipped right away.
I hate how some places just think they can just rip people off!
