I bought my dress online and found the perfect bridesmaids dress to match. They both have the same black lace appliques to tie the look together. I was OBSESSED with the look. I sent the link for the dress to my girls MONTHS ago. They all procrastinated. My sister ordered hers a few weeks ago and got the dress in the mail. The other 2 still haven't ordered theirs.
My sister sent me a picture of the dress and instead of the dark silver it was supposed to be, it was super light. It looked WHITE in the picture. I freaked out. I cried at my desk. Then I went online to look at the dress and see if maybe she just ordered the wrong color. THE DRESS IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! My other bridesmaids still haven't ordered theirs.
I'm pissed because had they ordered the dress when I first sent them the link, we would have known about the issue with plenty of time to send the dresses back and return them for a darker color.
I know there's still plenty of time (96 days!) But I'm freaking out. I planned so much around those dresses. I specifically picked my dress instead of another I was considering because it matches this dress. I picked the guys suits to be grey instead of black to match this dress. I picked the flower girls' dress TO MATCH THIS DRESS! It all revolves around the dark silver and the black lace.
I know we'll figure something out. My sister can return her dress and we can find something else that will work. I'm just stressed and upset that they waited so long.
Thank you for letting me vent.
