Freaking out

Okay, I'm getting married Saturday. I've called every day to check on my dress that is being altered. It's still not done! It's Tuesday and as of right now, I have no dress. Noone seems to know what the hell is going on at the bridal store either. It's totally stressing me out. I haven't tried the dress on and had it fit perfect yet, and now I may not get to. I'm getting an airbrush tan Thursday and don't want to even risk a chance that the tan rubs off on my dress.


That and a huge box of decorations isn't here yet; I thought i'd get it today, but so far, nothing....


I'm supposed to call back in 15 minutes so they can call the alterations lady and see what is going on. I am trying to remain calm, but this scares me; bad!

GO TO THE STORE!!!! Show up in person and demand answers and to talk to the owner. Seriously, calling can only do so much. Tell them that the dress was supposed to be ready on X date and it isn't and you will expect a refund of your alteration costs (tell them this after they give you your dress though) good luck. Also, with the decorations, don't stress. If they don't show up, only you will know, and it is early in the day they will show up. Relax honey, it will all work out!!

Remain calm, I would ask for someone 'in charge' to get the right information.  I hate dealing with all the people that have NO idea whats going on- its frusterating and will just wok you up!  I wouldn't get sprayed until you find out whats going on with your dress, or at all maybe cause most likely it will run anyway if you sweat or something...


Did they give you a date it would have been done by????


- HMM :)

Awww, Jen!! You still don't know about your dress? I agree with the girls, you should go to the store and demand to know where your dress is and when you will get it by. Just remain calm and I'm sure everything will work out. Weren't the tuxes suppose to be coming in today too?

OMG! the same situation happened to my BF a while back. Apparently the alteration lady was nowhere to be found and it turned out that she was very ill and out for a few weeks so my friend panicked and went out to rent another wedding gown. In the end the alteration lady did call her back a couple days before her wedding and everything worked out fine but my friend ended up wearing both wedding gowns.


Don't stress too much, I'm sure it'll all come together in the end and after all she does have a business to maintain. Good luck!

Take a deep breath and seriously, go to the store. This is something that needs to be done in person... because whomever answers the phone obviously doesn't know what's going on. They are cutting this WAY too close. You don't need this stress.


When you call back, get the number for the alterations lady. It sounds like you need to be speaking directly to her and not the women at the bridal store... since they don't know what's going on. You need to have a fitting asap... not moments before you walk down the aisle.


It'll be alright, Jen. Breathe. ;-) You're going to be absolutely stunning this weekend!

Well I'd rather miss out on the decorations than my dress. ;)  So if they don't show up don't fear b/c you can still look amazing without the decorations, but not without the DRESS!
