finally my dress is in

Recommended Posts

so when I ordered my gown back in the beginning of september last year, I was told that my dress would only take at the most 12 weeks, worst case 16 weeks. So the beginning of January, I called after the first of the year and they gave me a delivery date of the 23rd, so the 24th I called and they were giving me the run around. You see they had a flood in the store and had to put a stop on all shipments until the store was ready to accept deliveries and have a safe place to store them. When I called they tried to tell me that the 23rd was the ship date and that it should be within two weeks, I was also told at this time that this dress was being made in China and they shut down the factories for the holidays (over christmas that is). Now I already knew they had a flood so I waited 2 weeks and called back, now I am upset and asked to find out some answers, the sales lady said she would have the manager look into it and get back to me. that was on monday, on thursday I still hadn't heard anything. I called back, I was told by my sales lady that her manager had made a phone call and sent an email to the supplier and waas waiting to hear back from them. I wasn't happy and asked for the manager to call me the next day. What do you know she found out it was being shipped from Utah that day because they finally released the hold on shipments because the store was ready again to recieve shipments.

Now I don't know why they just tell me that in first place, I would have been patient.

anyways I can't wait, I want to run over and put it on and see exactly how it looks. but they close before i get out of work most days, I hope to get there tomorrow night.

sorry this was so long

YAY I'm so excited for you!!! Can't wait to see pics! Also, Chinese factories close down for days for Chinese New Year, so that may have been an issue w/ the delay along w/ Christmas.

Now I am worried about the waist line, I hope I didn't gain any weight on my waist.

but I am sure it will be fine, I still have time to keep working on this.

I thought my daughter was the only one with a "horror story" about the dress not coming in. She ordered her dress in mid-August & just heard this week that it finally has come. Today I am going with her for her first fitting...can't wait to see it on her, I'm sure there will be many tears shed !!

I'm thinking someone forgot to order it the first time & when we started calling at Christmas time to find out where it was, they placed the order. BUT, what could we do except wait. I'm sure once she has tried it on, all our anger about the "mistake" will fade away. I'm a firm believer in "don't sweat the small stuff" and that has gotten my thru this far.
