She was trying to hold down cost for the wedding and rented her dress, which is the new big thing in her area, MONTHS ago. A week and a half before her wedding, the rental shop called and told her they no longer had that dress and had nothing else she could rent because it was prom weekend and everything they had was spoken for. Sounds like a very customer service oriented business doesn't it. (Heavy on the sarcasm here.)
So she found something online and ordered it. She forgot to have it overnighted so there was a real fear it wouldn't arrive in time for the wedding. Luckily, it arrived in time. Unfortunately it was three sizes too big for her. You can tell by the pics my daughter is very slender.
The clock is ticking. We are down to days before the wedding and the girl still doesn't have a dress. She orders another one. It arrives and it comes close to fitting. It can use some alterations but there's no time.
Approximately two days, give or take, before the wedding she finds THE dress.
The morning before the wedding, she gives me, her mom-in-law-to-be and her auntie-in-law-to-be a preview. She's kept the dress that needs alterations as an option, but it was the last dress, hands down, that was the pick of the litter.
Here's the pictures from the viewing.
