A few months before my wedding, I found it – the perfect dress. The one I had dreamed of as a little girl. After ordering the dress and paying the deposit, I left the shop happy and confident about my decision. Weeks later, about the time I expected my dress to arrive, I received a call from the boutique. “We’re sorry, your dress has been discontinued and is no longer available.” I was devastated. A whirlwind of fighting for my deposit, filing complaints and shopping for hours to find another dress ensued. Looking back, the dress fiasco seems like a tiny blip in the grand scheme of wedding planning and being married, but at the time, it caused a lot of inconvenience and disappointment in the middle of an already stressful experience. I learned this lesson the hard way: vendors make mistakes. In fact, according to Travelers claim information, 30% of wedding day claims result from problems with vendors.
