I don't know where these women get off - this ends up being the most expensive dress you ever buy, and you don't need anyone's attitude or thoughts on your weight. I'm sorry you have to pay so much for alterations. I hope your mom gave the owner an earfull!
We all know you will look beautiful and can't wait to see pics!

I'm sure your dress will turn out beautifully once it is altered. Can't wait to see pics!

I once bought a bridesmaid's dress at David's Bridal for a friend's wedding that was like 9 months away. Well, they measured me and ordered my size 2 dress in January. I went and picked up the dress in July (for an August wedding) and knew it was going to be bad- I'd gained like 15 pounds since I ordered the dress due to a bunch of stress and stuff. I'm definitely an emotional eater! Anyway, the ladies at the store when I tried it on made me feel like an absolute cow. They made so many comments like "what did she think she was doing, ordering a size 2" and "I hate it when girls want to order a smaller size just to make themselves feel skinny" and stuff like that- totally within my earshot! I ended up squeezing myself into the dress after some crash dieting, but it was probably one of the most humiliating moments in my life. I feel your pain.

Another bridal salon I went to sold me an oversized dress and lied to me. I am a size 10 and they sold me a size 16 dress. They told me alterations of the dress is not going to expensive. But I was told by another seamstress it would cost a lot of money altering the dress so I am better off selling it. I am in fact selling it here at BDW soon.

i once had to get a bridesmaid dress from this store in S. Jersey (i can't remember the name but it is on Route 38 right near the Hooters (haha)...anyway i am 5'4" and have an hourglass shape and this dress was so horrible - it was for someone who is like 6'1" and lean and no breasts - the women in the store made me feel like a freak and they were like "we don't think there is anything that is going to make this fit you right" i wanted to punch all of them - it was horrible!!!!

Who do these people think they are? They aren't out there saving lives or doing any real good - they sell overpriced dresses for god's sakes. They should get over themselves. The world could run just fine without them.
