Dress update, for whoever cares

So my mom called the boutique today and actually got to talk to the designer himself.  Lucky bitch, he answered the phone.  Every time I called, one of their girls answered and I never felt like I was getting anywhere.  I had a feeling that the designer/owner didn't really know what was going on with my dress - and he didn't.  My mom told him about it and he was pretty upset.  (the shop is owned by a gay couple - one designs the dresses, the other does mostly paperwork/orders - I'd talked to the paperwork guy)

He told her that he would get to the bottom of it and get back to her.  Okay... well, not long afterwards, the other owner (paperwork guy) called her back.  He said that my dress is scheduled to land in the US tomorrow, and then has to go through customs.  It is scheduled to arrive here next Friday (the 29th). 

Just for shiits, he did some digging on the other dress.  You know, the first dress that went to Germany.  That dress will not make it here until the Friday afterward (Nov 5).

Wedding is November 20th.  Both owners are very happy they decided to order a new dress.  I will not really be happy til the dress is here, but whatever.

So, there it is.  I feel a little better, but yeah - let's wait til next Friday and see what happens, eh?

    [QUOTE]My mom told me that she told the designer I was having wedding nightmares about walking down the aisle in jeans and that I was a complete mess... which may or may not be true but jeez, she didn't need to tell them that.  When I do finally get in for the fitting all those <strong>people are going to think I'm a complete nutbar.

    Oh and ever since you changed your sig I think it looks like the backgound is a fake curtain. There is no way a point and shoot picture could turn out that good. :)

    I'm glad you have an actual delivery date.  Did they give you a tracking number for the carrier?

    [QUOTE]I dunno Nates - my mom talked to them.  Who knows.  I don't care.  I just want the damn dress. That sounded bratty.  Whatever, I do what I want.

    You are not in any way bratty.  I've only heard a few things about this, and you have a right to stomp your feet and make demands. 
    Everyone here thinks you're being too nice and wants to riot the place.

    Damn. I thought it was pretty bad that I spent 1/2 hour thinking the shop lost mine. I was blessed.

    Good luck to you, and yes please pictures!!!!

    Huge relief for you. Can you effing AW pics of the dress after you get it please?! Because with all the trouble you've been through to get it, I really want to see what it looks like.

    LTZ, I'll do the completely obnoxious thing and order KA to use a photo of me in the dress as the backdrop for SB.

    I think she'd agree.  But only if you pose atop a unicorn shiiting rainbows and have a pissed off/dissatisfied look on your face a la Labia riding the triceratops.
