So to address many of your comments, it is not as simple as taking the dress back and demanding they fix it because "they" are located 10 hours away from me. As you will see the problems aren't significant enough that they would be willing to pay to have the dress shipped down, fix it, and ship it back up.
For what I paid, the quality should be higher. Enough said. On to the pictures.
A few of the buttons look like this. Hanging on just by a thread. I do not want a run to the grocery store for an emergency sewing kit to be a part of my wedding day.
This is the most frustrating part as I am not sure how to fix it. If it came to the bridal shop from the manufacturer that way, they should have fixed it. If the seamstress broke it, she should have figured out a way to replace it.
Lessons learned today:
1. I love you all
2. I am kind of melodramtic
3. When you buy something, don't get so wrapped up in the excitement of the purchase that you forget to inspect it for quality
4. When something goes wrong, take a day before you blog about it, let things settle in a little bit before you cause a stink
