Oh dear... What are we to do? You ordered your dress six months ago, and it arrived today! How exciting?!! But, we have a problem… it doesn't fit and we can't get the zipper up! Uh-oh! Your wedding is two months away! How about that? When you ordered your dress you were a size 8 according to the vendors size chart, which meant you were actually a size 4. The dresses usually arrive a little bit large, and have to be altered. We had your measurements taken by our seamstress, and you signed the contract verifying your measurements. (Actually we measured you twice, and YOU signed the contract twice.)
Ladies, please do not forget the disclaimer on our contract stating that we are not responsible for any change in dye lots, weight gain, loss and PREGNANCY. You signed to accept all of the above. And now we have a problem... (Actually, YOU have a problem). You’re pregnant! OMG! Obviously, you can't fit into your wedding dress, and now you want your money back.
Dear, we didn't get you pregnant. It was either an Immaculate Conception or your fiancé, but either way WE were not the culprit you danced with minus birth control! So, sorry, but the dress is yours to keep. I suggest that you have the baby, lose the 50 pounds of pregnancy weight, and wait six months to wear the dress if you have at your wedding!
BOTTOM LINE: READ your contract before you dance...it is binding! No exceptions!
