dress too short

Recommended Posts

Good news is, that they were able to lengthen the dress! Let's focus on that. Once you see the dress on, then you can tell the owner in person how unhappy you were about everything. It sucks that it took so long to get connected with her. Keep us updated on your status after you see it in person!

oh for sure i will. i'm hoping everything is going to be fine. if it's not at least i have my mom there to stick it to the owner (she's way better than me at that).

 

i hope if anything positive comes out of this experience is that others can learn from my problem.

At least the good news is that they say they were able to lengthen it. I really hope it works out for you. They told me the same thing about my dress - that they were going to steam it/press it to lengthen it. I'm going for my 2nd fitting today so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It sucks that we have to go thru this sad.gif

Keep us updated on how it goes at your fitting:)

Hey I just noticed that you're in Burlington... is that the Ontario one?!?! If so I'm hugely curious what bridal shop it is that you're dealing with! I've got lots of friends around there and it'd be good to be able to warn them if possible!

i just moved here a couple months ago so i'm not familiar with the stores here.

okay thanks good to know!!

 

How do you like living there? I grew up there from when I was 5yrs to about 23yrs old - well split between Burlington and St Catharines anyways. My parents are still there too. The only time I really miss it is during the spring and fall. We just don't get those seasons here in Calgary really and all the smells in the spring and colours in the fall are just memories now sad.gif I don't know if I'd ever move back there but I sure wish I could visit more!

well just a quick update on my dress. i had my fitting yesterday and it is so much better. they stretched the fabric & steamed it to add 3/4 inch in length. i got flat silver sandals (1/2 inch) from town shoes Nice Shoes Online For Less - The Shoe Company

they look great and aren't too much with the jewels either. at least now with such great sandals i'll probably show my feet off more. haha.

 

anyways...thanks again everyone for your comments & support. it did help...and i'm glad everything worked out with my dress. it sucks it happened but it's fixed.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
