My Wedding Dress Fiasco…

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week is off to a good start.  It’s hard to believe we are already in the second week of April.  I don’t know where the time goes.  It just keeps moving faster and faster.  I wish it would slow down a bit.  I feel like everything is being rushed.  I hope the next couple of months go by pretty slowly because I still have a decent amount of things to get done.  I would like some more time to do it.

So yesterday after work, I was very excited to pick up my wedding gown.  As you know, I did have my wedding dress since about August of last year.  I ended up exchanging it for a few different reasons because it was very wrinkled, etc.  I was thankful that they let me exchange it.  So it finally came in and yesterday I was going to pick it up.  When I got to David’s Bridal, they were handing me over the dress without letting me try it on.  I said, I’m not taking this dress without trying it on.   I seriously thank my lucky stars that I pushed and pushed to try my dress on.  Otherwise, I could have had an even bigger mess on my hands to deal with.

So the first thing I notice when I take the dress out of the bag is that there is a pull on part of the fabric.  So I said something to the saleswoman and she said, oh they can fix that.  I’m thinking, well this should be a brand new dress.  There shouldn’t be anything to fix on it.  So I proceed to try the dress on.  I step out of the dressing room, look down at myself in the dress and look at myself in the mirror.  I was in complete shock and couldn’t believe what I saw.  Across my bust, there were pulls of fabric galore! It looks almost like a cat scratched the fabric with its claws!!!  I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.  Other parts of the dress had detailing about ready to fall off.  The stitching was all messed up!  I just couldn’t believe this.  I took one look at the woman and I said, “There is NO way that I am wearing this dress.  Look at it!”

The woman proceeded to look at what I showed her and she kept apologizing and saying she doesn’t know how they let this dress out of the factory because of so many defects on it.  I ripped the dress off and I was pissed!  I went up to the counter and the manager apologized and said she is going to order me another dress and inspect it before she calls me.  I drove out of my way to store nowhere near me to get my dress.  I am so irritated!  The worst part is that I walked out of the store without her giving me a receipt or anything!  I seriously hope she reordered my dress and that I will receive an email today.

I’m planning on calling David’s Bridal corporate and giving them a piece of my mind.  I am pissed and so annoyed!  I’ve given them a lot of business.  I not only purchased my wedding gown there but I purchased my rehearsal dinner dress, 5 bridesmaids dresses and soon to be my mom’s dress!!!  Oh, and I also got my veil, some accessories and I’m thinking about buying my wedding shoes there.  Like are you kidding me???  Something needs to be done!  I am so upset.  I just pray that they did re-order my dress.  GR!  I seriously think that when it rains, it pours.  I feel like nothing is going right.  What would you do in my situation?  Should I call there and give them a piece of my mind and make sure they ordered my dress?  I believe they should do something for me.  Even if it’s taking care of my wedding shoes since I was planning on buying them anyway.  They could comp them for me after everything I have been through.

After my fiasco there, I went over to Melissa and my mom’s house.  We decided to order Boston Market for dinner which probably wasn’t a good idea because I was so angry that I ate whatever I felt like.  Trust me, my stomach made me pay for it later.

Boston Market


This chicken was massive!  I couldn’t believe the size of this thing!  I definitely ate more than I should have and I shouldn’t have had the cornbread or mashed potatoes.  It was awful.

I pulled myself together and Melissa and I went out to do a mission for our wedding.  We were pretty successful, I will say but we still have a lot to do.  I’m glad that we at least started this one project together.  I was so thankful for her help.

Tonight after work, I’m going to stop at a hotel near our venue to take a look at the rooms and set up our room block there.  Then I’m meeting Mike at the restaurant that we would like to have our rehearsal dinner at.  We really want to try the food.  Although, I won’t be able to judge it much, I’m going on Mike’s opinion of the food.  He is usually good at judging things by taste so I trust him with that 100 percent.

I’m hoping today goes better than yesterday!  I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

  1. How incredibly unprofessional of that lady. What bride, in their right mind, would leave without trying on the dress? I feel like she may have known something was wrong with the dress and wanted to shoo you out of the store so that it would be left on you to figure out how to fix.

    Hopefully you get the right dress, and soon!

    • I agree with you! That is what I was thinking. It seemed like they were hurrying me out of the store for some reason. I’m 100% happy that I decided to try the dress on. I would have been screwed if I didn’t.

      Thank you! I hope so too!!

  3. I’m sorry you’re having issues with your dress. I can never comprehend why people don’t get that the dress is one of the single most important things about a wedding, and why the f would you screw that up?!
