Let's just say that was a very hurtful day for me.
Sorry to hear about your day though it does suck to be treated like crap.
I'm getting sick of hearing these stories! I can't believe anyone in the industry would treat brides like this. WE are the REASON they are in business! It shouldn't matter what our budgets are, when the wedding is, how big the wedding is, or the bride's dress size; we should all be treated with the same level of respect. To each bride her wedding day is possibly the most special day of her life, and the whole wedding experience (including dress shopping) should be treated as such! I'm not saying we need to be treated like princesses, but common courtesy should be a given!!!
GRRRR I was angry enough that I have actually filed a customer service complaint with the Better Business Bureau. That way at least I know they will receive a formal complaint that may make them re-think the way they deal with customers.
Thank goodness for forums like these where we can share our experiences & offer support for one another!

Susie - what a terrible thing to say to you! 14 is not huge by any means and to say something so hurtful and mean to anyone, let alone a bride. Inconsiderate.

My advice would be to send an email with a link to this thread and show them how damaging their stupidity and ignorance can be!!

SusieQ- I can't believe anyone would be so vile to you. Did that woman seriously think that the only people who get married are a size 2? Last time I checked women come in all shapes and sizes and there are wedding dresses that suit us all! You were a beautiful bride and your dress is gorgeous as well.

good luck finding a dress!
