My wedding dress is a huge disappointment
I bought my wedding dress over a year ago ready for my wedding next week.
the wedding dress was a Sample sale and I paid it off in full the day I bought it. The shop lady said she’ll keep hold of it until closer to the wedding when she’ll deliver it to the seamstress for alteration. Fine, no problem.
so the seamstress needed to take the dress up by quite a lot and replace the zip as it bust. I tried the dress on at the seamstress 3 times but never wheb it had been 100% done, but very close to.
Anyways, alterations were finished and I was told the dress would be given back to the dress shop where it would be steamed and could be collected.
I contacted the shop to say i wanted to collect is ASAP. She wasn’t happy about this and said I need to collect it the day before the wedding. I asserted that I wanted to collect it before then and agreed on a collection day - today.
I got home and unzipped thebag to check on my dress. I can’t eveb put into words how upset I feel.
I noticed small red marks (at least 3-4) despite the dress shop owner saying all marks would be steamed out. There’s also quite a lot of fraying with the lace.
The zip that was replaced is white - my dress is ivory. I called the seamstress to express my concerns and she didn’t accept there was an issue and said it was the clocest colour she could get. She also said it was ‘invisible‘ but can clearly be seen.
Theres also a hole in the skirt where it joins to the bodfuce as the stitching has come loose.
just needed a rant. But how do I get over this in time for the wedding?
