Why is Acceptance Criteria so important?

09/12/2010 - Lady Gaga - 2010 MTV Video Music Awards - Press Room - Nokia Live Theater - Los Angeles, CA, USA - Keywords:  - False - Photo Credit: David Gabber / PR Photos - Contact (1-866-551-7827)It was my sister’s wedding, and I was too excited, as it was only wedding of someone that close where looking your best and everything-like-princess was a must. I googled the best possible designs for my dresses and took services from one of the best boutiques in my city. I was all set to look my second best ( I already looked my best in my
wedding). Please note that I already bought dress material, provided dress designs and so I did not intend to pay much just for stitching.

 

Now when I was called for trying my dresses, I could not control my tears, I was highly disappointed. Designer told me that my expectations are unrealistic, and the designs that I told were out dated. She created what she felt was best as per my physique, dress material and occasion. I was like, I want to commit suicide and put her as reason for this in my suicide note. My only argument was, if she did not understand or like what I asked for, she should have told me before hand. When I was explaining her, she agreed to everything I explained. I had no choice but to pay her whatever she asked. As per her she was in loss, she had to add a lot of laces and buttons to make the fabric look good.

That was it. I never went back to her. She lost her customer, who could have gotten her many more customers. But, there is another side of story. Every time I wore those dresses, I was bombarded with compliments. BUT THAT NEVER MADE ME HAPPY!

REASON – I did not get what I wanted and I may not have that opportunity again.

So what could have been done – We should have set our Acceptance Criteria very clearly.
