    Oh how rude! Your mom ROCKS! That is great that she stood up for you and set them right. I think they size the dresses odd and are happy to pocket the extra cash they make from you. Don't let them get you down---they are just sad, sad women!

      I really think you should tell everyone the name of the store, where it is and what they did to you. I would want to know that if I was looking for a dress, that way I could stay away from that store.

        Wow ... that is so friggin' RUDE! Honestly, I would have taken my dress to another shop for the alterations if I was treated like that. I got my dress at Davids Bridal and am not a very big fan of that company ... so already got an estimate for alterations at another more high-end shop ... and what David's was going to charge me almost $200 will be udner $100 at this other shop. So, if there's any time to do so, I'd go somewhere where the employees have a little more class.

          Thats awful!! What makes them think they can treat people like that!

          I'm kind of glad you posted this, not because you were hurt, but because when I ordered my dress I was so close to my normal size, but my waist was 1 1/2 inches bigger that that size, so they wanted me to get the next size up. And all this time I've been thinking I know I'm going to have to get it altered when I get it because it's going to be too big up top in a bigger size, and I was also planning to lose weight and have been sooooo bad with my eating.

          So anyway, this kind of made me check myself because my dress is going to be in this week and god forbid it didn't fit, oh I will cry!! So I have to, have to, have to be good with my eating until I leave for Mexico! I feel like a broken record, but I really have to be good so that my dress will fit and look good!

          Don't worry, you & your dress are going to be beautiful!!

          That's terrible... and it makes me really scared!
          I just ordered my dress on Monday. They wanted me to order a size 12 and I refused! I tried on the 14 and it was 7 inches too big... so there was NO way I was letting them order me a 12 so that I would have to pay huge alteration charges. But, now I'm really nervous that it isn't going to fit me!!! AHh!

            Nope, no details... or pictures. Sorry. I didn't plan on ever posting pictures for fear of anyone seeing them... but then when I was at the store I got so excited that I didn't even take any pictures!

              Mo - That sucks! What a bucnh of B*tches! But trust me you are not the only person this has happened to. I ordered my dress and was measured and everything and they ordered the same size as the sample which fit... well it turns out that the sample was all stretched out! So when MY new dress showed up it fit but it was super unfglattering! I mean it was like, "wow look at that spare tire!" So in the end not only did I pay for it to be hemmed, the straps to be taken up but I also ended up having them let it out all the way!

              Thank god there was room in it but seriously, they should really tell people ahead of time that even if the sample fits that the dress you get will be smaller! At least the seamstress was nice about it I think I honestly would have killed her if she wasn't... I am very impressed with your restraint and great sense of humor!

              Anyway my point it - I think I spent more than you for alterations - but in the end it looked great, and you will too!

                Mo - The dress is absolutely going to be gorgeous on you! I hate that they have made you less excited about it!! Where is this shop? I will go down and kick their butts!!

                  Your dress is beautiful and you look beautiful in it!!

                  You should give that evil bridal shop owner a piece of your mind! She sounds like a biatch!
