I have a few minutes before I have to go to a work event and wanted to update you.
This is the ONLY situation that ever caused me any stress surrounding my wedding planning.
Backstory: Ordered my gown back in February to be created by an on line vendor in Tennessee. Got the gown 16 weeks later and it was a total piece of crap. Probably only took a week to make and looked nothing like I ordered. Wrong cut, wrong color, wrong neckline, none of the details were on the gown, the hem ends were fraying, the thing wasn't even finished, the bolero was all frayed and not finished as well.
The vendor said she'd give me my money back if I sent back the gown next business day, advised of UPS shipping and requested a return auth form within 3 days. All done within three days, but when I requested the RA number she never sent it and stopped communicating with me and Fiance. We have called and written to her each week to check the status of refund. With no replies.
To add insult to injury now she has the gown on her website for resale. WITH ALL MY MEAUSREMENTS FROM MY ORDER FORM ON THE SITE. I was furious when I saw that she is selling it for more money in her pocket. WE CALLED AND WROTE HER TELLING HER SHE DOESN'T OWN THAT GOWN AND CANNOT SELL IT ON LINE, SHE IGNORED US.
I cannot sit back and let this biotch take my hard earned money.
Fiance and I are traveling by car for our honeymoon and driving right through TN on Sunday after our wedding. I investigated suing her and I was able to sue her in small claims court and request my court date. I checked with Fiance and we are going to get a room in Nashville Sunday night and go to civil court to sue her on Monday morning at 8:45am and then go on our merry way to the east coast for the rest of our honeymoon. The timing was perfect as we planned on spending the night in TN on Sunday.
I send in all my paperwok today for the suit. Things work out for a reason. She's gonna be real surprised when the sheriff comes to her house to serve her the warrent. The last time I called her I left her a message that I was be prepared to take legal action against her if she doesn't refund my money. My fiance works for a large law firm in the City of Chicago (as their IT guy)
My message to the vendor:
Karma's a bitch lady and she's pissed off and gonna get you!!!!
After the suit is completed I am going to bash her by name on every national wedding website...
AAAAHHH....A CHANCE FOR SWEET JUSTICE.
PS: Got a beautiful gown, so all is well, I wont be wearing burlap to the wedding.
