No...we didn't bother asking for any money back... mostly b/c M.Maurus doesn't think he did anything wrong! He thinks he did a bang-up job of capturing our wedding and that I am just being a bridezilla (not sure if you saw his post on this thread...trying to explain "his side" of things...haha:-))

At this point, I think what I'd like more than money back, is an apology and an offer to "polish some of the turds" he gave us:-)

I doubt he'll edit any more... there's a snowball's chance in hell I suppose that he actually changed his way of doing business after reading this review BangHead.gif

Wow. That's pretty much all that I can say... this is my idea of the worse thing ever happening on my wedding, right after FI not showing up or saying no. I am so terribly sorry that this happened to you and that you are still having to deal with it. You could always have a vow renewal in a few years, wear that Amsale dress again (that's the first dress that I tried on, and it made me cry - it was *the* dress but I couldn't afford it) and get proper pictures! I have a friend who got married in Rome and is seriously thinking of doing that just to do it "right" this time around.

 

Regardless, you do have some pictures that you can use! And you looked gorgeous, and you two said yes, so that's what really matters!

 

Best of luck, and hang in there!

Hey there! What's funny is -- I couldn't afford that dress either:-)
But I made an agreement with my DH that I would sell it after, to recoup some of the money...
So, that's what I did! Which was great -- but also not-so-great, in that I won't be able to recreate any pics in it:-)

BTW, if you are still wanting that dress, did you check out any sites like oncewed.com and preownedweddingdresses.com or even partypop...? If you don't mind wearing a dress that's been worn for a few hours, you might be able to find it at half (or even less) than the original price... (afterall, someone wore mine after!:))

And thank you for the sympathetic words about our pics -- it helps;-)

That could have been a good way to go about it, I didn't think of that! I've found my dress since, but I still think about this one though.

Since you no longer have it to shoot with, you could always get a new dress (a much cheaper one!) and hire a local photographer to get some shots of the two of you around the city? I wouldn't suggest to get into the Vancouver water at this time of year, but you could still get some awesome shots! It's not the same, of course, but it could be fun! There's some great photographers in Van (I'm flying one down for my wedding) and some of them have quite the affordable "engagement session" packages that you could use for that.

haha -- no -- the water would be FREEZING!:-)
And yes -- I've been looking into some photographers here to do an almost "engagement session" type shoot, since we never did engagement photos anyway:-)

Which photographer are you flying out??

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
