Totally unrelated to quilting, but our youngest DD is a bridesmaid to a good friend, whose wedding is **this weekend**.   The friend had her wedding dress fitted but the shop TOOK IT IN instead of letting it out and now, of course, the dress DOES NOT FIT at all.  The bride is in full-blown panic mode.

DD is frantically looking at links for dresses that can be in their possession, like, yesterday.  I assume the bride is also frantically looking at off the rack dresses.  

Of all the horrible things that could happen to wedding planning, this has got to rank up there as one of the worst.  :-(

Oh, no! That stinks! Hope she finds something!

Wow that is awful. I so hope she is able to walk down the isle in a beautiful dress. Keep us posted I would love to hear a happy ending to this story!

I don't remember if I've told our horror story.  I didn't know until I walked into the back of the church if the guys would be wearing jeans & boots or tuxes.  The tuxes had been ordered locally whose supplier was in Dallas.  Our tuxes were stuck in an ice storm somewhere between NM & Dallas. So the morning of the wedding he contacted a couple of competitors in El Paso, who pulled together enough tuxes to outfit our party.  The morning of the wedding - my dad's best friend flew him to El Paso (100 miles each way) to pick them up and arrived with them 30 minutes before the start of the wedding.  We didn't notice until the pictures that the pants were not all the same color of gray stripe.  The pants were way too long, and the groomsmen were wearing boots & loafers.

I'm listening to Anna Karenina right now and there is a wedding scene where Levin's servant forgets to keep out a clean shirt when packing.  The wedding started several hours late while they frantically searched for a shirt for him to wear, finally tracking down his trunks just as they were being loaded.  I thought geesh, wedding problems have a very long history.
