    Hi All,

    I bought my dress from a wedding dress shop in Westfield Stratford. When my mum went to pick it up, they tried to roll up my massive dress to fit in a bag the size of a grocery shopping bag that would normally have been used for accessories! When my Mum said that they needed to find a bigger bag as it had lots of detail and beading that could be ruined by the scrunching up, they were very rude, but eventually offered a larger bag.

    Needless to say I am unwilling to have them alter my dress, since they have such disregard for such a costly dress. Does anyone have any recommendations for a seamstress in and around Hertfordshire. I currently live in East Herts, so North London is only down the road as well.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry cannot help with a seamstress, but awful behaviour from the shop. Have you got book face you could enquire on locally.

    Yes, but nobody I know on there has been married near me. A lot of my friends have all moved across the country. It really is such a pain to have to find someone, its like a hidden industry!

    As if they would scrunch it up into a tiny bag?!

    I'm nowhere near, but I would go into any local bridal shop and you'll find someone is usually happy to help, even if it's not from them. If they won't do it, ask the staff for recommendations. You'll get there!

    Disgusting! [email protected] [email protected]?

    I've heard bad things about them. I think the seamstress who did my alterations now does them for that shop but she is amazing. Let me know if you would like her contact details x

    Yes I have been into bridal shops but the town where I work is a bit snobby and they have also been unhelpful - Not having much luck am I? Haha!

    InDreamland - Yes it was that company. Could I have the details of your seamstress? Where is she based?

    My OH's cousin got her dress from there and thought they were great but been the opposite for me!

    I'll post her details on your wall, she was in South Woodford just above a really bad bridal store, but she was brilliant.

    Posted on your wall and also sent you a message in case the wall posting gets lost amongst the adverts.
