This is mostly just to vent, but I appreciate all listening ears and any words of encouragement (or discouraging words! Haha)
I am going through the same bridal boutique for my fittings that I bought my dress.
When I bought my dress, I was in love with them. My dress was a very new line, and they were the closest shop to my house (1 hour away) that carried the dress at the time. She stayed open on Black Friday last year for me to try it on, and the sample fit me so I bought it on the spot. It's a family owned business and the woman and her 70 year old mother were kind and flattering and charming.
I scheduled my first fitting for the last week of August (had booked 2 months before) and she texted me morning of saying she would have to reschedule. She was getting divorced, sellng her house, everything happened all at once. I expressed my disappointment because I had specifically requested off that day from work. I don't work a 9-5, so I took a day off to go to the appointment (cont)
