This is so frustrating. I’m a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding and need to get my dress fitted and altered. I’ve been calling a few places and got to the voice message each time. I left a message but haven’t got any response back. What’s up with the vendors these days? It makes me feel angry and nervous. My own wedding is next year and I can’t even think about having to go through the alteration just based on the experience I have now! Sorry bees and I just wanted to vent to someone (like all you ladies) that understand it.

It might be that they are family owned businesses and they are out of town – we just had Passover last weekend and this weekend is Easter. I have no idea where you live so maybe it’s weather related as well? 🙂

I’d say just keep calling around (at either 11am or 2pm to avoid ‘lunch hours’) and see if you can get ahold of someone. This weekend and last weekend may have been holiday breaks as sfchick mentioned. I found a fabulous seamstress just by chatting over the phone with her and their shop has been so accommodating. Hopefully a few more calls and you’ll find that right shop 🙂
