It's hard to find a dress when they never have your color. For some reason, blue is the color of bridesmaid dresses most stores carry. I want green. I started out wanting a kelly green color or shamrock. Turns out, that color looks awful on every one of my bridesmaids. Now we're on to a darker shade of green, borderline hunter green I suppose.
Sunday we went again. One beef I have with stores. Just because we're not there to try on wedding dresses, doesn't mean you can treat us like crap. Bridesmaids are important too. I was wandering around one store in the bridal section looking at veils and hair pieces waiting for my sister to arrive.
Saleswoman #1: Do you have an appointment?Really? I'm looking at bridal accessories and you're basically kicking me out. B!tches!
Me: No, I'm waiting for my bridesmaid. Thought I'd take a look around at veils and hair pieces.
Saleswoman #1: Bridesmaids are down the hall, you'll have to go there.
I wander down to the bridesmaid section and started pulling dresses I like. A different saleswoman comes in.
Saleswoman #2: Can start a room for you? You're a bridesmaid?Really? What is with this store? It was rude central. My sister said that the store hasn't changed in attitude since she was looking at wedding dresses 10 years ago.
Me: I'm waiting for my bridesmaid, my sister actually.
Saleswoman #2: I'm going to start you a room in the other part of the store. It's easier for me.
Me: Oh, ok. I'll just wait for my sister and pull some more dresses and come find you.
----- my sisters comes in at this point ------
Saleswoman #2: Oh we can just do it here I guess.
-----She plops the dresses in a room and proceeds to stand and watch us.-----
We tried the dresses, took some pics and then left to another store, which by the way was super helpful!
