So I went for my first proper dress fitting today at the most amazing bridal boutique where all the ladies made me feel so special last time I went, found a gorgeous veil etc and where I bought my dress from before Christmas. I took my mum and we were really excited to see how the dress would look fitted properly, and have a girlie day out but...
firstly the seamstress made lots of remarks about how much work needed to be done, tutting and stressing that whole sections needed chopping off, reworking, rebeading, restructuring etc
she made a lot if comments about how I should expect a huge bill at the end of the process for the vast amount of work needed to make this dress look good, and kept asking if I realised how much money it would take on top of the hefty price tag I'd already paid
she told me off for not standing straight and moving too much, apparently I was putting her off her measurements (even though I was hardly breathing in order to keep still!!)
my poor mum didn't know how to help or what to say, and I felt so upset I nearly burst into tears, I know the dress needs a lot of work but her snappy, negative attitude turned my dream dress into a burden and I feel awful now!
She told me that whole sections of dress would be altered, losing the original beading and i just wish I could afford to buy myself a new dress in e right size (unfortunately it details at £2600 brand new which I couldn't afford)
has anyone else had a bad experience? Sorry for the rant!
