Happy Memorial Day!

Hmm...the title seems sort of like an oxymoron....

Anyways, hope everyone is having an AWESOME weekend, I'll be stuck at work the whole time, admiring the sunshine from the big store front windows....anybody doing anything fun?! BTW I have a HUUUGGGEEE david's bridal rant, but I need to wind down a bit before re-living it.

    Ohhhh I wanna hear the rant - it'll probably make you feel better about work. I somehow managed to get vacation time this week and am headed to Vegas on Tuesday. It's Chris' birthday (fiance) and I gouged into the wedding budget to surprise him - he'll know we're going when we pull up at the airport. I can't wait!

    Lucky! Have a great time in Vegas! I haven't been there since I was 17.  FI and I like to go to 3 rivers casino a lot, so I'm hoping someday we'll be able to get out to Vegas.  Before we're dead, haha!

    Okay, here's my rant. I'll try to long-story-short it, but we'll see.

    I have 3 gals in my wedding party.  Sis is MOH, and my closest girlfriends are my BM.  The dresses vary in shades of blue, and while BM's are wearing a matching halter cut style, MOH is in a tea-length spaghetti strap dress.


    Jess called me the other day, and told me she didn't have the right dress.  So I go down to DB ready to kick some ass because I already was having a craptastic day...to have them tell me that while they have in their notes that she wanted the halter style she ASKED for the strapless cut (which is BS becuase for whatever reason that strapless one sooo did not fit right)

    so they get the order fixed, and give me a print out of everyones info.  then I noticed that the OTHER BM dress is also incorrect! This is the part where I try to not throw up all over the floor from panic.  The dress they had for her was something COMPLETELY different.  Saleslady calls the California store for me to get the order changed.  Hey, guess what they said happened! That in the cali store notes they had my BM wanting the halter, but said she asked for the complete opposite...sound familar? TEE FLIPPIN HEE.  I know DB has to cover their asses, but COME ON!!

    So, everything is fixed now, and everyone is wearing what they should be wearing...which is good because now they won't have to show up naked.  However, due to this lovely mistake, the girls' dresses won't be in until mid july.  I keep telling myself it'll be okay, but I have had horrible anxiety my whole life, so I worry over everything...

    Oh that sucks! I know they have to cover their bums, but I work retail and the few times I've screwed up on orders you just admit it and apologize. You should be fine, all the bridesmaid dresses I've ordered from DB came in earlier than they thought. Plus that still leaves you a month for alterations.

    I know it's stressful, but grab a glass of wine and try to relax. Worst case scenario is they show up naked and you just choreograph an interpretative dance and call it art.

    LOL ... that's just so not good on DB's part. Admit the mistake - sheesh!. I was going through them for my dress but I actually found a sundress at Torrid I liked better. Thank god. Now all I need from them is a brown sash ....

    Have fun in Vegas. I'm jealous. I've been the last two years with my BFF and this year, two weeks after we get back from our honeymoon my FI and I are heading there with friends. Can't wait!!

    As for our plans this weekend, we helped friends move to a new house the last two days. Not a lot of fun but its what you do!! Tomorrow I'm working a bit and Monday who knows at this point. Hopefully sleeping in and relaxing.

    Sounds like retail fun with DB. I had a pretty good experience with them but heard horror stories from other people. I'm sure it will work out though. Have fun in Vegas. I am working on Memorial Day. Yay! Fun times.

    all I have to contribute to this conversation is that I hate DB and I've banned my girls from getting their dresses there...

    Thank goodness I found a quiet, perfect little shop to get my own dress.
