    The Unbreakable Wedding Dress Contract

    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!

    Sincerely,

    ANOTHER Pissed Off Bridal Shop Owner

    I cannot imagine why the bridal shop would be expected to take the dress back...Remember, designers will NOT take back dresses once they are put into production. Why should the shop be stuck with the dress? Not fair.
    Not their fault. But everything is our fault, so I guess I am not surprised :(

    Hey Lisa,

    I couldn't agree more! Everything is always our fault because it is so much easier to have somebody or something to blame than to take it on yourself. Especially if you are a bitchy bride who got knocked up. Just sayin'...

    Thanks for your comment!

    XO,
    BB

    As a Bridal Shop owner, I had this question arise not too long ago. We discussed all the particulars about ordering the Bride's dress and the timeframe involved. She clearly seemed to understand the contract and did sign at the bottom "it is understood the dress ordered is especially made for your measurements and can take up to 26 weeks(give or take)for the dress to arrive in the shop. We are not responsible for weight gain or weight loss, surgeries altering the body shape, ect, pregnancy. ALL SALES ARE FINAL..she signed the contract and paid for the dress in full...We were ending the sale, and she mentioned she was trying to get pregnant...! Too bad..the dress is yours..get married after you have the baby.
