hi guys, its been a while since i posted and have ticked alot more boxes.
had a horrible experience in the bridal store yesterday with my mum, finally after waiting 8 months my dress was in, went to try it and it was all wrong, bodice too too big, my boobs are nowhere to be found, too tight in the waist i couldnt breathe, i ordered a size 10 as it was the sample 12 off the rack i tried back in march but was swimming in, so 10 was the go but this seemed like a tiny 10 in the waist yesterday, the owner in the store blamed it on me puting a kilo on over winter!!!!!! what the a flippin kilo, thats y its too tight and the bodice and boning are too high? hmmm nope i have spoken to a wonderful lady who does alterations, re designs dresses etc, she said no thats crap nothing to do with it, in her 30 years experience the stores always say they can alter it to be perfect for you but they just do the minimum, anyway after all this my cap sleeves that were ordered also werent in and she pinned horrible old satin ones on me and looked stupid, she told me to lose the 1 or 2 kilos come bak in january and she will alter it then!!!!!
To say the least i have had a stressful 24 hours, didnt sleep and erlier wasnt sure what to do, now i know after this awesome lady said pick up your dress bring it to me and i will fix it and you will look perfect and feel it too. so im going to go get it, and cancel the store owner doing anything on it, my trust is gone, i was treated badly and dismissed and jusy was a terrible experience, i waited so long and it was all so stressful and wrong !
So wish me luck getting it and because the alterations will cost me 500.00 she said make sure i only pay the balance minus 500.00, so wonder how this will go fingers crossed i get it for a lil less, we paid so much already as deposit and i cant lose the money and it was my dream dress !!
My FH and I are moving into our new house next week, so been busy packing and organising too, i hear ya, bit stressful while planning a wedding with 12 weeks to go, all has been smooth sailing and i didnt expect this prob with my dress right in the middle of moving or at all !
My make up trial is with magical makeovers, they are tops and look at their work on faceook, my MOH is a hairdresser so had a trial and it was gorgeous and all sorted.
