I bought my dress from bride be lovely last April 2011 for my wedding of April this year 2012. I thought the woman that helped me choose wasn't the greatest help but she was still very nice. I went for my fitting in October with my final payment and everything was just so perfect and I was told my dress should be in store in Feb/march. Then about 3 weeks ago I recieved a letter telling me they had gone into administration and my heart just sank I panicked thinking I wasn't going to get my dress. So at the weekend me and my mum went into the shop to find out what was going on and whilst we were waiting I was looking for my dress but couldn't find it so was even more worried at this point. The assistant then came to us and explained as long as I was paid up and had my fittings I would still be getting my dress wich is due in any day now. She was also saying that the administrators are being very good and helpful wig them. I then asked about any adjustments I will want or extras and she gave me the personal numbers to the seamstress and said they would be happy to do anything I need. I am gutted about them going into administration, it is a great shop and for brides on a budget like me you could still have that amazing dress and a good price. I would also like to say even though this is a big problem for many people and it means possibly going for a new dress and losing some money just think about the staff loosing there jobs and in this climate its not gonna be easy to find a new job but people can find a new dress. I was told that the manager had been there 30 years that's gotta be hard to be told you have lost your job. I've finished waffling now I just hope what I've been told does actually happen and I get my dress, yea its not good and its added stress to the wedding but there are worse things happening in this world.
