Kinda long, sorry. I just need to get this out.
So I ordered my gown in February, and it was supposed to arrive in June. My fiance' has been going in to make payments for me so I wouldn't be tempted to try it on until it's paid for. The last time he went in to make a payment the lady at the bridal shop, not the shop owner, told him it was good thing I ordered my gown when I did...it is now DISCONTINUED!!!!!!!! Here I am thinking "wow, I'm one lucky chick", but come to find out THEY DIDN'T GET MY GOWN IN!!!!! I am now the proud owner of the sample size gown. This kinda p*sses me off and is a relief at the same time.
I shouldn't be complaining about this, I should be grateful, but I really would have liked to have a gown in the correct size. I just wanted to put on my gown and say "Wow, this gown fits me perfectly!". Yeah, um no. I didn't get that. So now all of these thoughts like "How many girls tried on this gown?" are running through my head. I'm praying there are no arm pit stains and loose beads.
On the bright side I have an amazing seamstress who will be able to fix things like loose beads. I am pretty nervous thinking about my gown being chopped up in three places, both sides of the bodice to be tightened to fit my not very big chest, and under the bodice to be shortened.
I suppose things like this happen, and we learn to deal with them. It only makes us a little more patient, and more able to adapt to change. The good thing is I only owe $300 on my gown, and I can go try it on anytime I want. I plan on doing that with my veil, jewelry, and possibly my shoes in November. My fiance' will NOT be with me. He isn't allowed to see all of the little details.
