Wedding Party Dresses Dilema

Recommended Posts

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.

I'm so happy that everything worked out well for you!


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! :)

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
