    From the start I decided that I wanted my bridemaids to chose their style for the dress. We went around to stores to look for dresses but nothing was appealing to them or myself so we decided to have the dresses made. I had gone to a lady that does custom embroidery about 2 months ago and she stated that she would be able to make the dresses for us.

    This is where it goes downhill. My bridemaids and I went on Sunday for the measurements. I showed her the color of the dress and she states that she doesnt have it and that she doubts she will find it at the store. She clearly had it when I went to talk to her 2 months ago!!!

    Then my bridemaids one by one showed her the picture of the dress they wanted. Can you believe that she complained about each and every single style. She was saying that they were to difficult to make. When I met with her 2 months ago she kept telling me that she has 30 years in the business and who knows what other bs.

    Well long story short....she was going to go to the fabric store to see if she could find the color and she will let me know Monday which was yesterday. To no surprise she didnt find it.

    Plan B I had my MOH(my sister) go to another lady that my mom and my godmother know. She was amazing and she knew exactly what to do and was very helpful.

    The greatest news of all is that my godmother called me last night and told me the best news ever!!! SHE IS PAYING FOR ALL THE BRIDEMAIDS DRESSES AS A GIFT TO ME AND JR!!! I am so excited.

    I have always believed that THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON

      I hope it all works out with the dresses. I haven't started looking for Bm dresses- I need to get my own first...lol. Great news that your godmother will be paying for the dresses. People always come thru when you least expect it.

      BRIDE + GROOM + 60 GUESTS!!

        I got stressed just reading the first part of your story - you must have been furious!

        Great to see your good karma coming back to you! :)
