Marriage (Dress) Story

Today, I found out that the company I sent my wedding dress to caught fire and lost everything in their building. I was going to be the fourth generation woman in my family to wear it. FML

Did you have insurance on it? I’m assuming they will at least and I mean least pay you back or offer a new dress. Obviously it won’t have the same meaning.

With all due respect to what you are saying; I do not feel that op is being a bridezilla in this matter. She is only expressing herself in an understandably tramatic situation for all who are involved.

That's very unfortunate, I'm sorry you lost a precious thing that was beloved in your family but please don't be upset with the company. I'm sure they feel bad about it but they too lost something precious to them(assuming it's a small business), they just lost their source of income and probably had to let some good people go in this dier time. Everyone in this situation is at a loss so please don't be bridezilla and only think of yourself and try to be supportive to them as well and hope no one was hurt.

For a dress that has seen 3 previous generations of marriage & worn by 3 other women, it is HIGHLY improbable that it would fit the OP properly. The company in question is probably one that provides restoration and tailoring services to adjust the fit to the OP and restore / repair any damage that may have come with age. That kind of work might not necessarily be doable on site at a local tailor, the OP could live in an area without a tailor skilled in that work, or any of many other plausible reasons necessitating the dress be sent off.

If you get some sort of reimbursement, I wonder if someone would be able to at least try to make a new one for you that looks just like the original dress. Of course it won't be the same, but it would surely be better than nothing.
