    GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! We went to David's Bridal and found a dress for her. It, of course, is not the same color but it fits her perfectly. No alterations needed (thank goodness). I tried to get one in brown, but they did not have anything in stock in her size. But this was close enough. We are going to use a brown ribbon instead of the one that came with the dress.

    I feel so much better. AND.......I went to see the original seamstress, with both dresses in tow, and she paid me for them! I am a happy girl again. So I went to Merle Norman and had a make-over. Now I'm gorgeous! I think I'll go dancing tonight!

    Thanks everyone for your help and words of encouragement. You were right, it always works out ok in the end.

    Ok, a few weeks ago I told you about my wedding dress being ruined by my seamstress, well she also had to take in the top on my daughters BM's dress. And you guessed it, it was a mess. So I found another women that does alterations and my daughter took the dress to her. She took the dress apart and put it back together the way it was originally. The only problem is that the first seamstress cut the top and now it does not fit over my daughter's boobs. We cannot add any material to the dress to fix it. I was trying to be nice to the first seamstress and only had her refund the money for the alterations. I assumed someone else would be able to fix her mistakes. Well the mistake was on me! I am so upset. The wedding is in 22 days. Where am I going to get another dress from? I have been crying all evening about this.

    Then to top it off, the FI is trying to fix the toilet because it keeps running and he screwed up a part. So I go to Lowe's to get another part. I'm in the store and he is trying to explain it to me, but I just don't get what he is talking about. Well, he was frustrated with the toilet and I was upset about the dress so I hang up on him and find one of the floor guys in Lowes to help me out. I buy the part and bring it home. The FI takes it out of the box and proceeds to tell me that "I got ripped off" because there was something missing out of the box. That was the last thing I needed to hear.

    My daughter and I have been looking online at David's Bridal to see if we can find another dress, but the colors are off. Then as the cake topper, the dog peed on my carpet!

      That really sucks! I am so sorry! I think you should go back to the seamstress and ask her to pay for a new dress. You were being nice the first time but I would tell her that because of HER mistake you weren't able to get it fixed and therefore need $$ to cover buying a new dress. That cost shouldn't fall on you! Good luck!

        I am taking both dresses back to her and asking her to pay for all of it. I was lucky enough to find another dress for myself and have it altered and it is perfect. Unless she gives me the money back, I can't afford to pay for another dress. Then what do I do? Ask my daughter not to walk me down the aisle because she doesn't have a dress? I know it shouldn't matter what color the dress is that she wears, but I'm being selfish. I wanted both girls to have the same color dress when the escort me.

            I ordered it online from BestBridal prices.com back in February. It was a Forever Yours. I don't have enough time to wait for another one. I think I'll just drink a glass of wine and go to bed. I don't have to work tomorrow, so I need to put Bridezilla to bed. I am going to demand all of my money back from her tomorrow. Thanks for listening to me vent.

              ew I'm sorry! I say ask for all of your money back. Can forever yours overnight it? Have you searched for it on ebay? If not, then you have to think about what's more important-the color or your daughter walking down the aisle...and wine always helps

                I ordered my dress from there and if its in stock they will ship right away. The girls there are very nice just give them a call and tell them what happened. As far as that seamstress...I would go bridezilla on her and demand her to pay you. She doesn't want to make a bride 22 days away from her wedding mad.

                Wow, that's horrible! i'm sorry to hear that you had such a horrendous day! I know how you feel wanting your daughters to wear the same color as they walk you down the aisle. I'm being more strict on things that i never thought i would even care about! She absolutely SHOULD pay for everything that she ruined beyond repairing. If nothing else, for good business practice and customer service. You can remind her that every mad customer will tell 10 people about his/her experience and every happy customer will tell 3 on average...so she needs to make her customers happy!

                    That totally sucks. I missed the thread about your dress, but the fact that neither dress can be fixed at all? That cost should be coming out of her pocket. You don't have someone pay you to fix something for them, and then completely wreck it and expect not to pay for the damages!!!

                    Go BRIDEZILLA on her ass!!!!
